What child designed the cabins?

Sail Date: April 2012
Destination: Transatlantic
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Almost everything about the cruise was wonderful, but the cabin itself was one of the worst ever... JUST the cabin was awful, not the bath which was excellent.
First of all, the cabins are so narrow that, with the beds arranged as they are, it is very difficult to get from one end of the cabin to the other. One literally has to shuffle to pass the bed - VERY poor design, all in an attempt to cram in as many balcony cabins as possible. And, don't try to access the very small closet without lots of trouble, since the closet is only inches from the side of the bed. And if your partner is sleeping, forget it because he/she will be awakened as you fumble to gain access to the closet. And, who was the genius who put the largest storage over the bed head. Does one stand on the bed for full access, or not use that precious space, or travel with limited clothing? Really poor design.... All cabin designers should be forced to spend 2 weeks or longer in the cabins that they design and More fit, and not pay them until they go through what we deal with. I don't need more space, as I spend little time in the cabin except to sleep and dress... What I do need is a design fit for humans; maybe get the bathroom designer to do the cabins, as the bath designs are wonderful....

Note: Cadiz, Spain is one of the BEST ports ever. It has not been used much in the past, but I promise that you will love, love, love the city... Less

Always a fun city to explore. First timers might take an open bus tour in good weather and get a feel for this marvelous city. As in all big cities worldwide, just be careful where you go and don't show off your glitzy jewels or watches - it's so nouveau and just a bit tacky too - you are exploring foreign lands, not trying to impress a new neighbor!

Wonderful city... Just read about the city in advance and go on your own. It is friendly, big enough to have many great places of interest, but small enough so you get a good feel for the city.
