420 sq. ft., queen bed (converts to two twin beds), private dining, living area, mini-bar, vanity desk, marble & granite bathroom with full-size bathtub and seperate shower, walk-in closet, and private veranda.
Our first PH cabin was a one time special Birthday gift for my husband, but once I'd experienced this perfect suite, there was no going back and this was our 6th. This cabin could not be more comfortable, very spacious and the walk-in closet and large bath are a pleasure. If I were to complain about anything it would be the shower which is very tight.
One suggestion: Don't be drawn in to the PH1 on Deck 11 with the Executive Lounge when you can book a PH2 on 10 midship that is identical in every way, but quieter because it's not under the pool deck and does not have the overhang. I learned this the hard way ... never again. Read entire member review >>
We loved this room. Towards the middle and a little more than half way up to negate extra movement and noise. It was incredibly quiet, but that might have to do with the clientele. Lots of room and always had a great view. The bathroom was spacious and had a walk in closet on par with most large homes. The bed was exceptionally comfortable, but I did bring my own pillow as I have severe neck problems. I would rate it on par with any 5 star hotel on land. My husband spent a lot of time on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
This was a nice location. Although we were under the Terrace Buffet, we did not notice any significant noise from above. It was great to just walk up one flight of stairs to go to the Buffet. That was where we ate most nights. The Penthouse Suite on Marina is wonderful. Loved the big bathroom and roomy shower. There was lots of storage space with a walk in closet. We didn't even use all the drawers that were available. Read entire member review >>
Nice large cabin with walk-in closet allowing plenty of space for luggage. Comfortable living room area with couch, table and two chairs in addition to desk with chair. Nice balcony with two large chairs & a table. Made our cruise very pleasant. Read entire member review >>
Very nice and spacious cabin with a walkin closet, roomy balcony and lovely bathroom. Suggestion: avoid PHs on level 11 as there is a big overhang from deck 12 that reduces visibility. Also, laundries are on each floor which is a nice touch. Read entire member review >>
Penthouse cabin was great as usual. Deck 10 was chosen to reduce huge overhang on deck 11 and provide more sunshine. We chose port side by mistake, so we did not enjoy nightly sunsets from our veranda. Butler was great. We did not use executive lounge on deck 11, despite the short climb from deck 10. But in any event, coffee at Barista is a better start to the morning. Vanity & walk in closet are great. Cabin size and butler are great and worth the extra $150 or so per day.

The space in the PH on this ship is amazing.
The walk in robe seems a bit excessive at first but it is easy to get used to and keeps the room tidy. The bathroom works well and despite previous reviewers comments on the separate tub and shower we used both and loved them. The products provided are fine and reduce the items we need to pack.
I had pre-ordered a bottle of scotch and it was on the bench warmly awaiting my arrival.
The bed as usual was heaven and the TV position better than on the smaller Oceania ships.
The furniture on the balcony was good and we used it for many sunrises and sunsets. Read entire member review >>
One of the nicest cabins I have ever sailed in. There was plenty of drawer space, a walking closet, huge bathroom with a shower and a tub with an additional shower. There was a lovely sitting area with couch, end table and chair and a desk that had a laptop in the drawer for use. The minibar was always kept stocked. The balcony was quite large with two nice chairs and a table. My husband napped out there quite often. When we upgraded from an A2 to the penthouse, they initially out us midship on deck 11 and I actually called back to have them "downgrade" us to a PH2 because it was more forward. I was concerned about deck noise above as we were right under the pool deck. So putting us further forward eliminated that issue. There is a big overhang which shades the deck, but we didn't care about that. The location was great for us. It was just down the hallway from the laundry room (which we used a couple of times) and the executive lounge, which we used a couple of times a day. Read entire member review >>
Nicely appointed with more than enough storage (including walk in closet), large bathroom, writing desk and vanity. Quiet with staterooms above and below. Fun to watch the Pilots board and get off ship.
Would have been nice if the curtain between sleeping and sitting areas could be drawn so as not to wake a sleeping partner and more plugs (or plug adapters provided) Read entire member review >>
Lovely stateroom, beautifully appointed, giant walk-in closet, marble bathroom. Fairly close to mid-ship, so relatively smooth sailing. About six staterooms from forward elevators, close, but quiet. Nice veranda, used a couple of times on this sailing. Read entire member review >>
PH2 11007: Great location forward on deck 11. Some noise from the bow when breaking waves in rough seas. Huge room with lots of amenities, including a butler, a walk-in closet, a giant bathroom, etc. Read entire member review >>
Penthouse 11066 on the Oceania Marina.. Be forewarned. The noise of moving furniture and cleaning floors and staff walking around in the Cafeteria kept us up at after midnight, and woke us up by 5:30 in the morning. Be aware of the 11th floor .. Especially the area right below the cafeteria. Read entire member review >>
