Room was nice great space with plenty of shelves, drawers and shelves, no need to bring a blow dryer for they provide a really good one, also they provide liquid bath soap and shampoo and robes. Read entire member review >>
Electrical outlets were not conveniently located and there were very few. Medical devices such as CPAP machines required an extension cord that you had to get from guest services and crawl under your bed to connect not to mention the trip hazard that it created. Room was always cleaned when we returned. The cabin steward did an excellent job. The sewer gas smell was the worst when we went into the corridor. Read entire member review >>
We booked two weeks before sailing and got an enclosed balcony cabin for the first time - we loved it! Ultra quiet and quite roomy. We will definitely consider an enclosed balcony again. Storage space was limited, but okay for a 7 (or 10) day cruise. The sofa was very firm, but no one slept on it, so it was okay for us to sit on. Bathroom has lots of storage. The bed was very comfortable - we slept very well, as I said, an ultra quiet cabin! Read entire member review >>
The couch is the size of a single bed and once it is pulled out you cannot exit to the balcony. The room is very small. The bathroom has a door to pull if you use the toilet. Only 1 person can stand at the sink. The toilet paper is single ply. You do have a fridge to remove all of the mini bar items and add your own water or if you pay the corkage and bring your own wine. They keep ice coolers in the hallways for you to get your own ice.The water tastes decent from the faucet. Plenty of hangars and shelves and drawers and big space under the bed.The balcony door is very hard to pull (takes two hands). Plenty of privacy on the balcony. This room in below Tsars restaurant Main restaurant and O Sheehans (which has sports events on TV). Long walk to the forward deck to the pool and Stardust Theatre (if you cannot walk that well). Hallways are very small and almost impossible for wheelchairs while the staff is cleaning. Bring walkers if you can. A couple of current movie channels are on the TV and a clock is on the phone. The gym was great. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice, especially the balcony. Sofa is dated and in need of being replaced. Walk-in shower with separate door for shower and toilet. Only a couple of plugs so make sure to bring a multi-strip. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin attendant was so humble. Very respectful and very hospitable. His name is hard to pronounce but we called him Ed. it was a joy to see him everyday. Thanks again for great trip. Read entire member review >>
The room was good for a standard balcony. There was plenty of closet and shelves clothes. There are only two outlets in the room. The balcony is very private. The bed was ok, the pillows were great. There was a nice couch to sit on and the bathroom had sliding doors for the shower so the whole bathroom didn't get soaked. Read entire member review >>
Nice spot actually. Near elevators and theater. Very quiet except for our neighbor who was convinced she could sing. She could not. I would take this cabin again, no problem. Read entire member review >>
CAbin 8522- well maintained, much larger shower and bathroom than expected. Bedding as OK, balcony was great- no obstruction and good sized. It was a little short on cabinet space that was enclosed so some clothes just sat out in open space behind the cabin door that could have been at least partially enclosed.

Balcony was great, wonderful view. But that's not hard to do on the Inside Passage of Alaska. Room steward (Eric) was the only staff member that smiled and seemed happy. An electric kettle is included in the room which was a great item to have handy for a hot cup of tea or coffee. Robes were included with the room. For a cruise ship, the room size was big enough for the two of us. There was some jockeying to get around each other sometimes but that is to be expected for a stateroom on a ship.

Tiny Closet, Old fashioned TV,very slippery floors at entrances into ship from deck most dangerous especially as the floors are sloping and many people slipped over in the rush to get out of rain this definitely needs attention with a none slip surface, we had a wonderful cabin & balcony very quiet the walls were well sound proofed,the bed was really comfortable and very clean, the food was good and tasty and no shortage you could eat all day and night and five Restaurants to choose from,the idea of passengers sitting at a different table each evening is a very good way to meet people but if you wanted to sit at a table for two four six or more that was your choice Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8048 has the enclosed balcony. It is located near the forward elevator and stairs. It is across from and next to crew exits but I heard absolutely no noise. It is very quite and there is only one other balcony next to you. Although it is a long walk to the food court it is well worth it. Read entire member review >>
Small balcony (restricted view). Plenty storage space. Cold water - not very cold or much force behind it. Great sized bed. Power shower nice & powerful but does have tendency to change temperature at will Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8028 is close to forward stair tower, convenient and a very quiet location. Partially enclosed balcony which cuts down on wind when at sea. Cabin not large but big enough for 2. Closet is good size, several shelves but only 3 small drawers. Read entire member review >>
My room space was adequate, however the carpet had at least 3 stains larger than coffee saucers, the mini sofa had about a 3 inch tear in the upholstery to which no repair had been attempted, and the room needed to be deodorized because of a slight sewery smell in the bathroom. The bed was saggy enough that I could see the sloping indentations of prior residents, even when it was fully made. There was a mechanical clattering sound coming from the ceiling that was ever present. Read entire member review >>
cabins are small as are most. stick to cabins forward of the front stairs and elevators or beyond the aft stairs and elevators. There is much less foot trafic in these areas.
Pick floors with cabins above and below. Read entire member review >>
