• Was a bit cramped but worked out OK for our family of 4 (two teen boys, both larger than me!). We bumped into each other when in the cabin, but didn't spend much time there. • Got scared when we arrived and saw that there was just one large bed and one tiny couch (not pull-out and barely twin sized) for our family of 4. Didn't realize there was a twin-sized bed folded up into the ceiling that the porter pulls down and makes up for you each night, then puts away each day. Phew! • Bed and pillows were very comfy. Room was nice and quiet – by the sound of many other reviews, we really lucked out in that regard. • Very poor drainage in the shower. The showerhead and body jets were cool, but the water got so backed up, we couldn’t really use them. Had to just get wet then turn off water to lather up, then turn water back on to rinse off. If water stayed on more than 4 minutes, the water would overflow out of the shower enclosure all over the bathroom floor. When we brought it to the attention of our steward, Danny, we were told this is “typical” of ship plumbing. Nothing was done about it. • We booked a mini-suite with “large” balcony. What a joke. Our balcony was just as narrow as all the others (so no additional water frontage) just deeper. However, with the shallower balconies looking over/in on us, it offered much less privacy than the others. • NOTE: There is NO hair conditioner, face soap, or body lotion in staterooms, only a pump dispenser of body wash and shampoo. If you care about your hair & skin getting dried out, bring your own conditioner, facial cleanser & body lotion. • The hair dryer is permanently affixed in the sleeping portion of the cabin, so cannot be used in the bathroom. A few times I had to awaken napping family members in order to dry my hair (right next to them), because I couldn’t do it in the bathroom.

Great Cruise! twinsmom2001
We had a mini suite with a large balcony. There were 4 of us in the room and we had plenty of room. We were just mostly in the room to sleep and get ready. My husband and I hung out on the large balcony quite a bit at night. The balcony was awesome. I could not believe all the room we had. The larger bathroom was nice. It was nice not to have your knees against the sink while you were sitting on the toilet.

Our room was great and our balcony was amazing! We has a mini suite with a large balcony. The balcony was unbelievable we hung out there all the time. It fit two loungers and a table with two chairs.

Great room, clean, bathroom fantastic with two sinks and shower with 6 jets! Balcony has two loungers, two regular chairs and a table. Pull down bed with couch, we were 3 but could sleep 4. Room location was great (IMHO) central to all the public areas on Decks 6-8. A little bit of an elevator or (daunting stair hike) to Deck 15 - access to pools, sun decks, garden cafe (buffet).

Best Cruise Yet! Davelori

The room was a little smaller than I expected for a mini-suite but was adequate. The bathroom and balcony made up for it.

Cabin is nicely decorated. full tub and double sink is a nice feature. Light switches are not placed by the bed to control the cabin lighting. TV remote did not work consistently. Six TV channels plus channels related to the ship.

Our cabin was a mini-suite with an extended balcony on deck 8. Knowing how small the balconies are on the Getaway (and this ship) I planned for a cabin with a larger balcony. This one was great. Being near the front of the ship you did not have the lifeboats blocking your view of the water and the balcony had two loungers and two chairs along with a LARGE table. The only downside would be the privacy since people on the balconies above can look down and see about 75% of your balcony.

Better than expected salesmansam

A fairly long walk from activities to our room at the front of the ship.
The balcony was very large ( 9 x 12 feet)
Being on the 8th floor made us convenient to almost everything except the features on 15 & 16.
We felt the storage was adequate, but not excessive. There were 3 of us in the room and never felt crowded.
The bathroom was the nicest and the largest of any ship we have been on. The sink was exceptional and the shower large and full of features like several jets and a cascading shower head.
The air conditioning was very responsive to our adjustments and kept our room very comfortable.
The T V set was nice, but the programming leaves a lot to be desired.
