Very clean, spacious. Good access for wheelchair.
Sofa bed was very uncomfortable for our adult daughter.
Beds are a little too high for direct wheelchair to bed transfer.
Staff efficient. Read entire member review >>
Handicap cabin, excellent and very well thought out and done. Only issue is the balcony , I am not in a WC but I don't know how someone in a WC would get out there easily. The cabin is well positioned in the middle of the ship so if you need to go to the back (most restaurants are in the back) or the front (Horizon and amphitheatre) it is pretty well equi distant to both of them. The bathroom has plenty of solid grab bars and a nice seat in the shower. Read entire member review >>

We were in stateroom 7044 on the Marina and would gladly take that room again. It may not have been as big and luxurious as some of the suites, but had plenty of room for us. It was right near the gangway, which was not a bit noisy and very interesting to sit on the veranda and watch the crew raise and lower the gangway. It was also a good spot to people watch as passengers came and went from the ship. It also was near the spot where the pilot ship would pick up the pilot whenever one was needed to help the captain direct the ship out of port. It was fun to watch the pilot ship come along side and pick up the pilot while on the go. Read entire member review >>
We had a B3 cabin, which is a veranda central cabin on deck 7. The cabin was comfortable with all amenities: ample closets, drawers and shelves, a small fridge, a desk with a chair, a sofa, a small breakfast table, mirrors, wonderful bedside lamps, TV. The best feature was the sliding doors leading to the veranda, where a table and 2 nice comfy chairs invited us to enjoy fresh air, the sun, the ocean, or the moon and the stars. The bathroom was a marvel in itself: all marble, a tub and a separate shower, lots of storage place, a three-sided mirror, good lighting. Our chambermaid and her helper, both Eastern-Europeans whose language we could speak, became our friends and kept our cabin impeccable, including leaving daily ship bulletins, and the chocolate on our pillows. I have asked for additional pillows and they were delivered promptly. Read entire member review >>
The staterooms we saw and stayed in 7020, were similar in shape and design. The designers utilized low maintenance materials for the cabinetry, lots of plastic laminates that look like dark wood grained surfaces. The bedding was so comfortable all we needed to do was look at it and fall asleep. Our bathroom was nicely done in real-marble as were all of the facilities on board. I wonder if there is any marble left in Italy after seeing this ship. There was a bathtub and a shower in all staterooms. (spotless) We found them more than adequate for our needs. The shelving and draws were not deep enough to our liking. Folks 5 foot and under may have difficulty reaching the safe and top shelf of the cabinetry. The verandah is a great amenity for all cabins on board and we used it frequently for reading and private sunbathing. The more luxurious suites with even larger accommodations have similar bright work and lots more space and amenities even on their verandahs. Some even had walk-in closets. Ours was a bit smaller but more than adequate for us. Read entire member review >>
