Our deluxe verandah suite lived up to its name. Spacious, lots of windows, ample closet and drawer space, huge balcony, nice bar area. The living room area had a long couch and cozy easychair. Bed was not Westin, but still quite comfortable. We were on port side, and on this particular cruise (Montreal to Boston) we faced away from the port when docked. Our room was a few doors away from the Neptune Lounge; a good location. Some of the plumbing, as well as the bathtub, did not look refurbished.
My nieces had room 220 on Deck 9, completely aft on the port side. Just outside their room was the exit to the deck, with the housekeeping station across the hall from their room. They didn't complain about noise, but I probably would have. The room seemed small, perhaps bec. the large balcony took up much of the space included in the square footage. For two young women, there didn't seem to be enough storage and they partially lived out of their suitcases.
