Bed was the hardest I've ever attempted to sleep on - other cruise lines use a pad to convert the 2 twin mattresses into a king to reduce the hard lump between the mattresses. Bed had a sheet covering the mattress, it wasn't even a fitted sheet, and a comforter. No top sheet to cover with. Had a balcony stateroom, refrigerator didn't work, shower didn't drain & entire bathroom floor had about 1/2 inch of water after showering. Toilet didn't flush and then would randomly flush on its own in the wee hours of the am when we were sleeping. Came back to our cabin after breakfast one morning and the toilet was stuck in flush mode. The loud sound could be heard long before we entered the cabin - had to find something to do until it was fixed because we couldn't be in our room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin had enough space and our attendant Paci was the best. The room was always immaculate with fresh towels and ice. The cabin was far enough away from the elevators, we had good neighbors so we were not disturbed. Balcony is very small. Read entire member review >>
The Cabin: We stayed in cabin number 12146 on deck 12. It was small, of course, but it was also very well designed. There were so many shelves that we were able to store all of our stuff without any problems. There were like 15 or so hangers, but if you need more, bring it with you. It solves the problem. What I liked the most was that we could place our empty suitcases under the bed so we didn't bump into them like we would do in a hotel room, or have them occupy an entire closet space. Very clever. The room has a TV, hairdryer, coffee maker and safe. There is NO iron or ironing board. You have to call to the guest desk to ask for it and this is a very time consuming procedure. Plus, you can only keep it, no more than two hours. So bring wrinkle free clothes, or your own iron. Also, there are not enough outlets, so bring a small power strip for your gadgets. The bathroom is roomy enough and as always, there are plenty of shelves and a LOT of towels. There is liquid soap in the dispenser by the sink and shampoo and body wash in the dispenser in the shower, which is very convenient. You don't have to run after the steward and beg for extra sets of soap or bottles of shampoo. Please note, that they do not offer hair conditioner, moisturizer, Q-tips or cotton balls. That stuff you should bring with you. We also had a small balcony with two chairs and a small table; just enough to sit outside and enjoy the view. Read entire member review >>
Small cabins - especially for a "Family Balcony". Fortunately I was able to book to adjoining rooms so a family of four (2 adults and 2 children) could live comfortably. Balcony is very small as well, barely room for two people. Read entire member review >>
