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 suite was double the size of the Veranda rooms, and so it was very roomy. On our deck, (#9) were only two Penthouse Suites next to a giant Owner's Suite located fully aft. When the ship pulled out of the dock, we could feel the reverse props and the ship shook like an earthquake most pronounced in the aft section; but it was usually momentarily and would not prevent us from booking an aft cabin in the future. More importantly, we were sandwiched between stateroom decks and so it was very quiet. (We had intentionally planned on that.) Ironically, we could not use the Concierge Lounge on our deck but had to go up two decks for the Executive Lounge. Read entire member review >>
PH3 suite. Good design and tasteful calm decor, with superbly comfortable bedding. More storage than we could fill and we do not travel light. Silent by day and night and free of any engine noise and vibration. Very efficient air conditioning. Small but totally private balcony with two comfortable chairs. The curtains provide a total blackout at night. A lap-top computer is provided but internet access is not included. Binoculars would have been appreciated. A quite large flat-screen TV provided access to a good range of international channels as well as all the usual shipboard ones. Bathroom were supplied with Bulgari amenities, a walk in shower as well as a tub which also had a shower. Lots of bathroom storage so there was never any clutter. Butler service was useful and full breakfast daily en-suite was always delivered within ten minutes of order time and set out on the table with a table cloth.
Beautiful room as described. We loved all the storage space and there is plenty. There was no noise from above or below and the room was maintained perfectly. We were on the 10th floor so there is no obstruction to the view.
Stateroom 10011 is Penthouse 3 category. The room had a walk-in closet and lots of drawers everywhere. The bed was wonderful, with full room lighting controls from either side of the bed. The butler service was very good as was the twice daily room cleaning. The room also had lots of hooks to hang clothes. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7130, a PH3 at the stern is slightly narrower than other PH cabins which proved problematical only when my wife was busy at the dressing table and I wanted to get past. It has a fantastic L shaped balcony that is possibly the largest on the ship. However the room is quite noisy when docking (putting a positive spin on it you could say it provides a free early morning wake-up service) and was dreadful when we were tendering in heavy weather and the ship had to constantly use its engines to maintain station.
Very comfortable bed; good lighting; small walk-in wardrobe. Nice granite and marble bathroom with a full size tub; shame about the plastic walled shower cubicle. Read entire member review >>
Port side deck 10 cabin 10020. Wow. A real walk in closet and dressing table for the admiral. Tasteful decor and crisp linens. Butler service is the best we've experienced. The veranda is adequate. I would not take a cabin aft of the smoke stacks until they clear up their easy to fix problem with soot falling on the decks and verandas. Read entire member review >>
Our room was fine. No outside hall noise, some sounds could be heard from an adjacent cabin but was so muted I couldn't distinguish what it was. Sounded like a TV but so soft it really wasn't an issue. Veranda was fine, everything was fine. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was wonderful. The beds were fantastic. The bathroom was beautiful, although the shower is a bit tight for a big person. The veranda was wonderful, with comfortable padded chairs and teak floors. The TV was good, but would have preferred it in the sitting area rather than bed area. Room even had a lap top computer. The walk in closet was excellent, as was the safe. The room location on the ship made everything convenient and the location was quiet. No problems at all with the PH3 cabin.

Penthouse Cabin 10002/Marina: Avoid! Too close to the front of the ship, bad in rough seas. A huge white light fixture hangs over part of the verandah obstructing the views. This is a PH3 level cabin, and for the same money you can get one much closer to the middle of the ship.
The interior of the cabin was very nice, well-worth paying more for. Very spacious,huge closet, really well-designed bathroom. Read entire member review >>
