Very badly designed. Lighting very dim and poor when you already have no natural light coming in.. Placement of plugs hard to get to. Privacy to all bathroom facilities very bad even with the added placement of a curtain. Noisy sliding doors on shower and especially toilet in the middle of the night. I did not expect the cabin to be so small even after looking at it on line. I hated the thought of returning to the cabin and two people trying to get ready in such a small space was like a game of chess. Read entire member review >>
The inside cabin was the best I have experienced. Some people would not like the set-up but seeing that this was my 30th cruise, I think I talk from experience. This was the first room on a ship where the shower was separate from the toilet. As you walk into the room, the shower is on the right behind a frosted door and the toilet is on the left with a frosted door. The other good thing was that there was a curtain just past the shower which gave a little privacy for someone taking a shower. Space inside the room was great with as much or more storage as I have seen on some balcony rooms. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was small, but well appointed. Storage was surprisingly adequate. We did not mind the bathroom layout and actually found it quite convenient. There should be better lighting in the sink area. It was too dark. Next time we will choose a balcony cabin as it offered more seating options and natural lighting. Read entire member review >>
The inside cabin I had was nice, it was inside it was okay, we had it set up as a double bed, there was less than a foot of clearance on each side we were smaller people so it was fine for us, the open layout bathrooms were not a problem for us married folks but my friends who were dating next door were very uncomfortable with it. its a opaque glass for the shower and toilet that are on opposite sides of the hall with a curtain to pull between for privacy. well if you are on the bed and your partner in the restroom, there is no sound buffering. you hear and smell everything. Going to look for a ship with a full restroom next time, we hated having the sink out sharing a desk, made a mess when washing hands.
our cabin attendant was friendly and thorough, but we always had the do not disturb sign up, and he would still come in and clean our cabin, even though I told him he didn't have to.(or want him to) Read entire member review >>
We had the beds arranged as two twins. They were comfortable and there was room to walk between them. Exactly as pictured on the website. The bedside lights were great, but overall lighting is quite dim. I would recommend bringing a makeup mirror to get closer to a source of light! The cabin layout and bathrooms worked for us. In an inside cabin, you can't expect a lot of privacy (they are always small!), but we were very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Excellent, however, could not contain shower water runoff inside shower causing the entire bathroom floor to remain wet or damp for at least 30 minutes after shower. Also need to knock on ALL individual doors for pre-cruise fire drill/emergency debarkation exercise. Read entire member review >>
We had an inside cabin and it was larger than I expected, very comfortable and modern. The 'bathroom situation' was not an issue to us as a couple. Friends may find it more awkward as there isn't a lock on either the toilet or the shower, and sometimes the doors slide open with the motion of the ship. You'd need to make use of that dividing curtain to give some privacy. If we did a 10 day cruise again I wouldn't book an inside- it was fine for a few days but started to get stuffy and claustrophobic. I like a bit of natural light and air! But I did know this going in, and we got such a good deal on the inside that we can't really complain. The bed was very soft and comfortable, and there was loads of storage, enough for 3 people probably. The TV was interactive and displayed our account, menus, activities etc- although it was very unresponsive to the remote. But I did find it useful that it showed the MDR menus for the whole cruise so we could plan where we wanted to eat. Read entire member review >>
It was the smallest cabin we have had to date. The cabin was clean and very quiet. We felt that there were not enough hangers for 10 days vacation. We had no trouble sleeping on the comfortable bed. There was a bottle of wine waiting in our room when we arrived which was a nice touch. Like so many other passengers we did not like the layout of the cabin ie the positioning of the shower/toilet/wash hand basin. Read entire member review >>
Cleverly designed spacious cabin with bags of storage.
Loved the large shower and the separate loo arrangement.
The bed was very comfortable.
Housekeeping staff were very good. Read entire member review >>
Was small but nice . Didn't like the fact that the sink was outside of the bathroom , but nice that the shower and toilet were separate . Our second inside cabin and not used to it , not knowing what time it was because no window and no clock. Read entire member review >>
Small is not tiny enough of a word. Whoever designed the sink to be on the desk in the room had to be wasted. Protect your electronics or they will get wet. Shower is bigger than most. Lighting is dim at best. We heard the same complaints from people with balcony's. They sail with 4,000 cramped people. Read entire member review >>
We were prepared for a shoe box size cabin, so we weren't surprised ! Separating the shower from the toilet wasn't as bad as some previous passengers let on. But the sink inside the room was the size of small shoe box ! Lighting in the room and space for the ladies to put on makeup was INADEQUATE ...hitting your head on the elevated refrigerator is no fun... Seemed to be adequate storage for 3 large suitcases and plenty of shelving/drawers. Bedding was very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
