The location was excellent and right across from the Concierge Lounge and laundry. We ignored three discounted offers to upgrade to a Presidential Suite since they were for cabins not near the Executive Lounge. Jeff, the Concierge, provided great assistance, especially handling computer issues and dining reservations, as the internet attendant was always busy helping other pax. The room has its own computer, but it is always quicker accessing my gmail account from my cell phone. The bathroom wastes space with a separate tub and tiny shower at the cost of insufficient closet space. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a size and class we had experienced before. The size (282SF) was more than adequate with both a shower and a bath tub. The furnishings were excellent and the cabin attendants top notch. Read entire member review >>
Terrific beds, pillows, and linens. Sitting area small and no curtain between sitting area sleeping. Blackout curtains worked well. Couldn't use balcony due to poor weather, but enjoyed occasional use when docking and departing. If you are a big guy, 6'+ the stall shower is a little tight but full bath with show is excellent. I used cozy stall shower, but had to open the door to pick up the soap if I dropped it. Closet was a little tight for two wardrobes but was okay. Nice desk with computer (we never used it) was handy. They supplied bath robes with the room, but we never used them and had the service staff take them away. Helpful hint: We read in one review to get a "hanging shoe bag" and put it over the door. We found one at Walmart for less than $7 and if fit perfectly over the stall shower glass door. I held all the extras we had brought along. There is plenty of storage and shelf space in the bathroom, but this handy organizer really made things easier during the trip. Lighting was excellent. There were pin-point lights that were adjustable by each side of the bed for late reading and switches on both sides of the bed controlled all the lights. Refrigerator was filled each day with water and soft drinks. If you like white wine, a good place to store it and any cold snacks you might bring back from your excursions. Plenty of room under the bed for compressible luggage. Coach in sitting room was a hide-a-bed. Plenty of storage space. TV programming in room is poor. Read entire member review >>
Pluses: near the rear of the ship, our cabin easily accessed the aft Terrace Restaurant. Minuses: maybe a bit more engine noise than a midship cabin, and far from the concierge lounge. But a quiet location. The soundproofing between cabins seems to be very good. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin, 9105 (an A3 Concierge level stateroom) was in an excellent location. Nothing to impede the wonderful views from our veranda, quiet and only a few doors from the aft elevators and stairs. Luxurious well-planned bathroom and excellent lighting throughout (including very good bedside reading lights, makeup lights in both bathroom and at vanity). Oceania really thinks of everything in terms of equipping the staterooms. The bed was designed to accommodate storage of suitcases, plenty of hangers, cashmere lap robes for the veranda, etc. Read entire member review >>
9039 was a lovely cabin not noisy although very near the back, this had a smaller balcony than the one that we were supposed to have before we upgraded.The bathroom we found excellent apart from the new screen on the bath which had just been installed on the refit.It was fixed which meant that you had to climb into the bath to turn the taps on.

Very small shower in Bathroom. Closets difficult to use being so close to side of bed if 2 people are trying to get dressed. Nice Bathroom toiletries. Bedding comfortable but would like option of firmer pillows. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 9073. It was great for the 2 of us. I loved the balcony. It was mid-ship and seemed easy to get anywhere from our location. The concierge lounge was handy. The shower was too small for my husband, but it was fine for me. The bathroom was nice. There were plenty of hangers in the closet. The cabins stewards were the friendliest we've ever had. They were efficient. It was very quiet. Read entire member review >>
Bathroom shower extremely small. If you drop something there is no room to bend over to pick it up. Veranda was nice, except the separator to the next cabin rattled and was not repaired during the cruise. Read entire member review >>
Close to the elevator, but the noise was not a problem until the last night of the cruise. View was terrific from our room as we could see people exit the ship for tours. Entertaining! Room was very comfortable. The lounge down the hall was wonderful, although small. A laundry is down the hall as well with soap provided. Shower was small, but what do you expect on a ship?! Bathtub was fabulous and I loved the bath salts. Read entire member review >>
