Good value as only $30 more than inside cabin. We had light and a bit of a view. Music and sounds of what I think was the culinary show filtered down to us. We had a bath tub and the shower was easy to figure out. The bed was very large (a King I think as it could be separated into 2 twins). We were mid-ship and quite close to the elevator.

Nice cabin with more than enough storage space. Too much furniture: ottoman is useless and just gets in the way. Air conditioning can't be turned off, so frequent sinus headaches. Choice of live TV channels poor, but movie choices good Can't HAL catch up with Celebrity and provide interactive TV for reservations and accounts? Read entire member review >>
My fault, I booked a guaranteed ocean view and ended up with a fully obstructed view. Bad enough looking at a lifeboat for two weeks, the maintenance men worked on it all day for the first week. The noise made it hard to sleep in the morning and no naps! Read entire member review >>
Loved the spaciousness and the wall of 3 closets. I had clothes for 3 weeks with, because we were on another weeklong cruise before we got on the HAL one. It was nice to have a bathtub for a change, the bed was perfect ( on other ships I always had to have them bring me an foam "egg crate" to put on top of the mattress ) and the storage was plentiful. I brought an outlet strip with and that worked out perfectly for charging all our devices. Our cabin steward, Ronny, was the Best- our room was always cleaned before we came back from breakfast each day. We especially appreciated that the drapes were on two tracks, so you could open the main ones but leave the sheers closed for privacy. Loved the basket of fresh fruit on the coffee table every day...

This stateroom was large with a beautiful large window. However, it was blocked with a lifeboat at least 95%. It is not possible to see any sort of real view. The cabin was clean and well-maintained. The cabin steward and his companion have 32 cabins to service and did a splendid job.Bed was adequate and larger than on other ships we have taken.. TV had necessary channels with a flat screen. Was difficult to change channels unless you were directly in front of the screen. Room was quite cool unless the heat was turned toward the top level. Read entire member review >>
Our room was on the deck 1. We always felt vibration I guess from the engine room below, but it did not bother us. Room was quite large, bath tub is actually very small sit-in tub but still welcome change from tiny shower cabins on other cruise ships. I was able to relax my tired feet after the long shore excursions. Besides there was room to hang the laundry on the pullout line over the tub. Enough closet space. The room was perfect.

Cabin in a great location. Minimum sea movement. Plenty of closet space. The view is partially obstructed by a life boat but we still had plenty to see and there was lots of light. Bathroom has a bath tub with a shower. Read entire member review >>
Cabins are poor in lighting. Not enough light in the entrance hall/closet area although we had a Cat HH cabin which has a floor to ceiling window. The mirror over the vanity is smokey and makes it even more difficult to see yourself. Location is good and quiet. Because this ship rocks more than other ships, this is a pretty steady floor. Had other family in cabin 8165 and the rocking was heavily felt. Read entire member review >>
