We had an upgrade from an ocean view cabin to a balcony, so I am not sure which category it was. It was on the 7th deck, port side, near the stern. We had no trouble with motion and did not spend a lot of time on the balcony. We did enjoy having it when we watched the arrival and departure processes. The room was adequate size for two adults. The closet was large enough to hold most of the clothes we brought for 10+ weeks. (We did laundry about every 10 days.) Read entire member review >>
remember this ship is old and has been sold - so it's not in great condition now. I have cruised Oceania before (they bought this ship) and expect them to upgrade it beautifully. I love the smaller ships. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very easy to live in for 25 days, plenty of storage. The a/c and heat worked perfectly and if you hang something to dry over the fridge in the closet and closed the door it would be dry by morning. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7041, balcony room, category BB. No complaints, plenty of closet and storage space, small sofa. Nice balcony, near the elevator and stairs but far enough away that it didn't pick up extra noise. Not a suite but not the price of one either. It was also on the same deck as the self service laundry, a nice plus. Read entire member review >>
This was a nice mid-ship room. The balcony contained fairly new, adjustable lounge chairs & a table. There was a loveseat, desk, & bed. It would have been nicer if the television had been visible from the loveseat. There was a refrigerator which was handy. The sliding balcony door had a minor seal problem. You can see your neighbors on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
Great position,away from lift noise etc, not full deck due to life boats and very quiet.Cabin was forward so a little liable to sea conditions if passengers were sensitive to movement, we loved it !!! Laundry on another level which was good. Closet was small but well appointed but cause problems with elderly or disabled passengers. Storage was excellent. Read entire member review >>
7022 was nice, balcony had some rust. Room was quiet. Beds were very hard. Clean and efficient. Enough storage for 2 ladies for 10 days, but in Tahiti our clothing was minimal. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small but good, but the balcony was never cleaned once in 28 days. I put some clothes on one of the chairs and they got covered in black grime. I cleaned ll the chairs myself. The bed was not comfortable, there was a lump right where my hips lay. The pillows were REALLY cheap and horrible. Just lumps of foam rubber and obviously very old.
When we packed up we found a sock belonging to a previous passenger under the bed.
Location was good, not far from the Laundromat and the elevators but nice and quiet.
The balconies are not very private, I could see the man next door most of the time so did not spend too much time on ours for this reason. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 7078, while a nice size, is almost directly across from the public laundry room. Although people are only supposed to use it from 8AM to 9PM, naturally a lot of folks don't follow this, I found it to be noisy, especially about 9-10 at night. If you go to sleep later than that, it won't be an issue. Read entire member review >>
