Our cabin was on Floor 1 which was awesome. We were very close to the promenade and upper promenade decks which was where most of the action was. This also meant that we did hear a lot of walking above us generally until about 10PM. Our cabin was spacious but the layout made for a tight entrance that opened up in the back.
There was insufficient drawer space, although you will find 1 large pull-out drawer under your bed. There were 3 hanging closets, however, which was very nice.
The bathroom was spacious. We had a tub with a shower and a toilet at a 45 degree angle, with 1 sink for the room inside that bathroom. The water pressure was good. although the water was softened chemically and sometimes even with great pressure and temperature it took too long to wash soap / shampoo out.
The in-room entertainment was unbelievably good. There was a built-in on demand system in the TV that actually worked well. Dozens of movies and TV Shows were available to watch on demand, and most of them were commercial free. We did experience 1 weird commercial that lasted about 7 minutes out of no where.
Cabin stewards were like ninjas and we barely ever saw them after they introduced themselves. They stopped by 3 times a day, making the bed, refilling towels, filling our bowl with fruit and our ice bucket with ice. It was very convenient and a lovely experience. Read entire member review >>
We were disappointed with the cabin. The lighting by the closets was so poor that we gadget trouble seeing what we ad put on the shelves. We did not like the position of the beds [at a right angle from the door] nor the fact that the connecting-room door had to be forced past the end of the bed. The connecting door ad to be closed in order to see the television. Read entire member review >>
We had an unobstructed ocean view cabin on the main deck. The cabin was approximately 187 square feet and had enough closet and storage space for all of our clothes for the 14 nights with room to spare. We even had leftover hangers. Read entire member review >>
We were traveling in cabins 8114 and 8116, an accessible cabin. 8114 had better close space, a nice baloney, and a bath tub (no jacuzzi). 8116 had less closet space and was geared for somebody in a wheelchair so a lot of your clothes need to hang in the lower half of the closet. The bathroom was very generous and there was a seat and bars in the shower, but no tub. The balcony on 8116 was at an angle facing the front of the ship which was especially nice when sailing. There is a ramp up/down through the balcony door for a wheelchair in 8116. Read entire member review >>
Only problem I have with have with the outside window room was the bunk bed was over the queen bed and I kept hitting my head when I got in and out. Otherwise there was enough storage space for 2 teenagers and 2 adults. Read entire member review >>
There are no better riding cabins on the ship than the inside J cabins which have the beds aligned in the long axis of the ship. They are 30-50% larger than the outside and veranda, great views out on TV chan 43.
Its pure physics shorten the lever and align the ride....Don't get a J which can be joined to another cabin or is ADA. or in which the beds are at right angles to the ships longitudinal center line/axis. There are only about 8 of these jewels.... and after 36 days in one...I wont ever look at another....
we had 2 days of 50 to 70 kt winds and 20to 30 ft seas...it got to many, we hardly felt them in our inside penthouse. Read entire member review >>
