8087, We were offered upgrade to this cabin for $600. It was worth it. It is located Mid ships and very smooth. The door to veranda is very hard to open but chairs are great and the design is what your going to find in any room in this category. We also had a chance to visit friends in room 1001 which is Vista Suite. Although the room is great they thought the wind factor kept them from enjoying the huge outside deck on the front of the ship.
