Cabin was very small bit efficiently laid out. Bed was very firm. TV was tiny and there are only about 5 channels you can watch. But then again, you don't go on a cruise to stay in the cabin. It was clean and the room steward was great. There are no toiletries provided but a hairdryer is. Some of our lighting fixtures were actually missing, like one of the reading lights on the bottom of the lamp on the bed. My mother's stateroom was missing both reading spotlights. You could see where parts of them were, but had been removed. Don't know why. Read entire member review >>
Location was good with very little noise or motion.
Room Steward Jackie was awesome.
Room was always impeccably cleaned.
The linens looked clean and smelled fresh.
Bathroom seemed in good shape.
Mattresses were very poor. I've slept on 20 year old canvas camp cots that didn't wallow out in the middle half as much. Hope they're going to replace those when they upgrade. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4535. Inside, forward. Shared by 2 people of average size (5'10" 200 lb, and 5'1" 130 lb). Twin Bed configuration. If a queen configuration is used in this cabin, you will climb over your bedmate to get out of bed as the bed is pushed against one wall, and you'll have no bedside table for ANY storage so we had the beds separated to utilize the center table. Tiny cabin- we could not unpack at same time because of limited floor space. One had to sit on a bed while the other moved about. No where to store folded clothes in closet. Tiny drawers for perhaps bathing suits or undergarments. All other clothes had to remain in suitcase under bed. Good storage in bathroom. Tiny shower. Relatively quiet to general noise, however could easily hear the buzzing of someone's cellphone against the wall of a neighboring cabin, enough so that we thought it was our own. Calm 3'-5' seas this cruise but we still felt the swells in this cabin. I fear a rougher voyage may be uncomfortable for someone with sensitivity. Relatively speaking for this ship, cabin is in an inconvenient area. Several steps to the elevator down 2 very narrow hallways. Choose another cabin if you have the option.

I stayed in an interior room at the rear of the ship. The last room to be specific. Other than it was a very very long walk back to my room every time I wanted to go there, it was a great quiet spot. I was on Deck FIVE so it was not far to go for the action which was good. I travelled alone and the room was more than I needed for space but it is small. Any more than 2 people and it would be crazy crowded. The bathroom is about what you would expect in a motor home for comparison sake. The room was absolutely spotless. Plenty of hangers, drawers to put clothes away and lots of room under the bed to store your luggage when not in use. There is an easy to use room safe in the closet and a flat panel 19inch tv on the wall. Not many channels to watch but you are not there to watch tv! Read entire member review >>
The inside cabins are very small. I'm a big guy, 280 lbs. My wife and I could barely pass each other in the cabin. This was a 4 day cruise, so the closet and drawer space were adequate. Any longer and you wouldn't have enough hanging or drawer space. The bathroom and shower are small, but I fit with a little room to spare. We chose not to separate the bed. This leaves a very small aisle on one side of the bed. However, it was sufficient. The mattress was very firm. The A/C was great! We like it cold with extra blankets, so it was perfect. I would recommend booking a larger cabin. Read entire member review >>
This room was larger than we expected, and they removed the mini bar items to give us more room. The location was really quiet and we loved it. The shower was fantastic even though it was small. Great water pressure, always hot water. Perfect room for us. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 2533 was the tiniest cabin we have been in and the bathroom couldn't have been any smaller but they make good use of the space so it was all good. There isn't enough storage for a cruise longer than 4 nights, but since we only went for 3 nights it was sufficient. There was a noise that happened every once in a while and my husband thought it might be a crew elevator. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom 5573, an interior on deck 5 was teensy, but manageable. Bathroom was only suitable for one body at a time. Very small. And one negative was that the shower curtain was always billowing out and allowing massive quantities of water into the general bath floor and it took some help to prevent it from overflowing into the room itself as the drain was extremely slow. So like the newer sliding plastic doors and circular design of the newer ships so no water gets out. Little closet space and just 4 small drawers made unpacking difficult but we managed. Definitely like the newer ships for stowing items as well. Central location of this cabin is good, near the 5th deck shops, dining, Schooner Bar and casino. Another bonus is that your tender station is inside Boleros on deck 7. Read entire member review >>
