The size of our veranda stateroom category VC (balcony room) was reasonable and seemed to be about the same size as Princess' mini-suites. There was more than enough closet space. (3 sizable closets). The photographs on the ship's website accurately show room, couch and counter/desk. The couch is small but seats 2 comfortably. There is ample overhead storage above the couch also. The previous review telling us about the drawers under the bed was helpful b/c we never would have found them. They are under the dust ruffle. The beds and pillows are firm. Ask the steward to empty the mini bar or do it yourself and you have a fridge. The bathroom was clean and the shower/bath combo worked well and had plenty of pressure and hot water. There is a clothes line in the shower. The sink is very small. The soaps and beauty products were complimentary and were of high quality (the signature line from the spa). The inside staterooms of our children also had plenty of storage but didn't have a tub - only a shower. The balcony was nice with two chairs and a table. The room was clean and we always had ice in the bucket and clean wine glasses. Safe worked well. Room for the suitcases under the bed. The towel animals were a bit creepy. Nice cloth robes provided. Two plugs on counter/desk and one in bathroom. Plenty of lighting. Closets are in hall along with cabin door and bathroom door. Congested area. Full length mirror in closet. Lighting is bad in that area. There is a lighted magnifying mirror on desk. Insufficient amount of lighting at mirror over desk for makeup.
