10506 - it's so close to the front of the ship that there's practically no traffic in the hallway! Secluded but not at a secluded price. The stateroom was tiny and the floor under the bed wasn't so clean. But we wouldn't have noticed if we hadn't been cramming the suitcases under it. We took extra plastic hangers which came in handy. But there was plenty of room for 2 adults who packed everything from parkas to bathing suits. By the way, we didn't need the parkas. The bathroom was tiny but fine. We got in the habit of showering in the spa so didn't use the stateroom's shower as much as we would have otherwise. This cabin being at the front is just an easy 2 flights down from the spa and fitness center. And it's just outside the spa and fitness center that you'll find the pools. We took a powerstrip and plugged it into the desk outlet and set it on the top shelf after we moved the coffee maker to the closet since we didn't need it. The perch of the shelf made a handy place for charging all our cameras and notebooks. Having the balcony was great. Waved at the crew on the bridge a time or two. If you want to watch the piers while the ship is docked, stay on the starboard side. Port side usually faced the water except in Victoria. This was fine with us though.
