On deck 11, cabin 11150, we were relatively high and forward on the port side of the ship. The advice given us to minimize motion that causes seasickness was to be low near the center of the ship. We did not follow that rule and we loved the location of our stateroom. Not only were there no seasickness issues, but we had a magnificent view. There seemed to have been opportunity for motion sickness as the winds were very high the first couple of days. There were some rolls and surges of the ship (my first cruise so I cannot comment on their relative severity) but no stomach twinges for my wife or me. Even though it was our first cruise, my expectations from photos and other info were properly set for the size of our stateroom. And it was very adequate for the time we spent in it--especially since we had that terrific balcony. The balcony was large enough for both of us to sit comfortably, privacy panels on either side, a small drink table between us, enjoying a fabulous view. The bed was one of the most comfortable beds I had ever slept on. It impressed us to the point that we had to investigate its source and availability. The pillows, too. Such comfortable nights of sleep. We were impressed by the quality of workmanship and materials used in our stateroom (indeed, over the whole ship). Though small, the space was very efficiently designed and served our purposes well.The bathroom is a model of efficient design and quality. An oval sink was cleverly used to provide adequate bowl volume and space without intruding very far into the room. The toilet has a vacuum-driven plunger that was entertaining to use even when there was no need. Even the shelves for toiletries had side bars that doubled nicely as handholds. The shower provided excellent water pressure and nicely built in amenities.The flat screen TV included remote access to our account information and a library of other helpful information in addition to be a seldom-used (actually never used) TV.The cabin doors opened to alcoves in the hallway rather than opening out into the hallway itself. A very nice safety feature on the day I watched a young child running full steam down the hall.Our cabin attendant, Kemuel "Abraham" Omier from Nicaragua, was very thoughtful and courteous, providing outstanding service. We enjoyed coming home in the evening to a turned down bed with towels on our bed sculpted into different animal shapes each night. He always had a smile and a greeting for us when we saw him in the halls.We were very pleased with our stateroom, its location, its amenities, and the service provided.
