Our cabin steward,Juan, was excellent. He took care of our cabin well and we were quite comfortable after he put some foam cushion on the bed for us. The first night of sleep did not go so well on the hard bed. Much more comfortable with the foam cushion. Cabin decor was nice and we love having a balcony room. We were on starboard side in aft of ship so we had easy access to the Garden Cafe, Venetian dining room and Bliss Lounge from closest elevators. The toilet sometimes flushed right away but other times took a few minutes to flush away but it eventually did. Shower was nice with soap and shampoo supplied. Right amount of towels supplied and robes for use. We found it to be a nice, mostly quiet cabin area. Read entire member review >>
The refit is nice but nothing special. The cabins are very functional and clean. A balcony is a nice thing to have but try to get mid-ships and port side for the best views. On the ninth deck and mid-ship, you are close to everything and do not have far to go, even if you get lost in the awkward layout of other decks.
Our room steward was exceptional. Read entire member review >>
We pre-tipped our room steward (very well too) and I had to clean the room a lot myself!
I asked for a blanket and was looked at like I had 2 heads!
I had to clean up our empty drink bottles! Daily.
Pool Towels - You cannot just Get One - You need to turn one in first! All this money and we have to fight over towels! Read entire member review >>
We did balcony guarantee and were pleased. Room was smaller since previously had a balcony suite on Holland. Surprised coffee pots were in the room and I doubled the packets for stronger coffee. Read entire member review >>
Typical cabin. Storage for suitcases under bed. Light in closet did not work in any of our cabins (traveled with 2 other couples. So this made it hard to see inside. Bathrooms are nice sized. Read entire member review >>
This cabin has what they called an enclosed balcony. What this was is the balcony is semi enclosed with ship steal but still had a large open area with plenty of room for my wife and I to both stand together looking out at the fantastic views of Canada and New England. The cabin was always kept very clean and was done quickly. The Cabin Steward even went as far as to learn a special towel animal for my wife when she happened to ask if he did it.

Our cabin staff Joel was the best. He made the hotel experience a joy. I even caught him singing the the corridor as he was working. He remembered our names and kept our room clean and tidy even when the maintenance staff did some painting on our balcony. Except for the fresh paint touch up and signs you would never know they were there. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very close to the forward elevators and very easy to get to things around the ship. I did wish we had a few more square feet, though, as we have had on newer ships. Balcony was comfortable and very private (it has an enclosed hull balcony). Cabin itself was quiet and comfortable, although the bathroom needed more shelves or a cabinet to store things and more legroom is desperately needed in the toilet area. The shower was roomy for a cruise ship. We loved that the refrigerator actually kept things cold and we had a coffee maker if needed. I would have liked a desk drawer to throw papers into - we did not have a lot of space to place all the paperwork left each day and things piled up throughout the week. Our cabin steward was great and took time to talk with us nearly every day. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8556 - Cove, in-hull balcony with plexiglass from rail to floor. Was worried about this, but it was fine although a little narrower than standard balconies.
Near elevator, but no noise. Over Star Lounge, but very little noise...just once during bingo, but still not bad.
Plenty of storage for clothes. Bathroom with sliding door, separate toilet area from sink. Flat screen tv. Read entire member review >>
Stateroom: We chose a stateroom with a balcony, which we loved. The bed had a nice duvet cover, and our luggage fit comfortably under the bed. We noticed that the balcony seemed to be more closed in than RC cruise lines. I loved having two bathrobes to wear, rather than just one provided by RC. I have no complaints on our room steward. He did a nice job keeping us supplied with clean towels and wash cloths. I was surprised that there were no towel animals on our bed. The shower was great, with a sliding door, and roomy. No need to bring your own soap or shampoo, or blowdryer. All is provided. Read entire member review >>
