Not bad at all, quite large, kept very clean by super staff. Ship's engine made a bit too much smoke, probably temporary, there was a small problem with particulates falling on balcony (and deck). Shower leaked a bit. Read entire member review >>
Good choice from our TA under the spa forward no loud noises, close to lido deck up one and crows nest up two. Cabin stewards Hon and Fabin were very good. No problems with hot water or air. Read entire member review >>

This cabin is on Level 7 and is located at front of ship. We found it a very peaceful and quiet location with excellent cabin crew. Be prepared to walk from one end of the ship to the other to eat, however it is not far and makes you feel healthier (or a good excuse to have another drink). Excellent views and good size balcony. Storage under bed, wardrobes and under lounge. Read entire member review >>
Small "deluxe" Veranda Cabin. Once used to the size, was more than adequate. Storage helped by drawers under end of bed. Safe, refrigerator, flat screen TV. Small veranda, but nice views from there. Bed was fabulous. About five cabins back from front of ship, very little noise. Read entire member review >>
Closet,storage disorganized. cabin very noisy and bouncy from wind at sea. soiled upholstery on pull out bed. Trouble with toilet flush, drain in shower and adjusting water temp in shower. nail polish on table. broken tiles in bath and some mold on sink seal. Light in bath went out and verandah light never did work. Staff was very good about cleaning. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom, 5115, was located pretty much mid ship so the location was great. The bed was very comfortable and the bed linens were very nice. The stewards kept our room and bathroom clean and stocked. There is storage under the beds for your luggage and drawers at the end of the beds for clothes.The closets are a good size. There is also storage space over the couch.
The room itself shows a lot of wear and tear. I guess I didn't expect this since the ship was just dry-docked 1 cruise prior to our sailing. The upholstery on the couch was very dirty, the "throw" pillows, should have been thrown away, the carpet was stained and the curtains were stained and torn. Don't get me wrong, I did expect a little wear and tear on the fixtures, etc, but I didn't expect to feel like I was staying in the no-tell motel when I paid for the Ritz. This however, did NOT ruin my trip. I have read many reviews from people who felt their entire trip was ruined because of these kinds of things. I am simply giving my observations as part of my review. One more thing, Ladies with thick hair, you might want to bring your own shampoo and conditioner. My hair never felt clean or conditioned using the ship's shampoo and conditioner. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was right below the Lido deck convenient for casual meals and great views but very noisy and irritating because of the crew cleaning above your head early in the morning,5:30 am. Cramped for clothing comfortable bed. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8105 is located toward the Aft of the ship right off of the elevators and stairs. The stairs lead up to the entrance to the Lido Buffet and the Aft Pool. Where there was a little noise from the elevators here it wasn't terribly intrusive and it was so conveniently located to all food and the pools that we would happily choose this room again. Everything in this room was in generally good repair. Read entire member review >>
Small with adequate closet and storage space for 2 people.
Balcony overlooked the lifeboats which stuck out from the side of the ship.
Bathroom has a shower-bath which was an improvement over the usual shower. Read entire member review >>
We had room 4015 a quad Verandah (VF category) - Balcony was great except being larger than the ones above we sometimes got things spilled onto our deck from above. We were over the showroom so sometimes could get noisy at night from the show, but it died down by 11PM. Lots of space in closets, drawers and drawers under the bed. We were in a quad and it was weird to have a bed pulled down over our heads the first few night but you get used to it. Great service from our room stewards. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was great. On the Upper Promenade deck with a balcony. The balcony rail wall was steel on the Upper Promenade deck, but decks above had glass. The steel worked out, but would have been nice to have glass with a 4 year old along. The room could pick up a bit of the show music at night, but not bad. Read entire member review >>
We liked the location of our cabin, some people do not like the top floors, but we were just one floor below the Lido deck where the pools and buffet are located, very convenient just walk up one flight, no waiting for elevators.No noise from above. Bathroom has a bathtub, which makes it easier to move around when you are taking a shower. Closets are adequate once you squash those life jackets into one space. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8018 put us far forward (5th one in from the bow) and up high (right below the Lido deck). We did not notice exceptional pitching or rolling, but then neither DW nor I am especially prone to seasickness. Thanks in part to the altitude, the views from our verandah were spectacular. The forward part of the Lido deck portside, directly above us, houses the salon; consequently, we never noticed any activity or other noise from above.
The portside location afforded us the opportunity to enjoy beautiful sunrises on the first half of the cruise and spectacular sunsets on the way back. The exterior partition of the verandah is clear plexiglass. I was impressed that the doorwall glass and the verandah plexiglass were kept clean and smudge-free.
Conventional wisdom has it that low amidships is the most stable location on a vessel, and that forward subjects you to more motion and aft to more vibrations. We were surprised therefore to find on three nights, while the ship was underway at or near its top speed, that we were awakened at irregular intervals by sustained shaking of the bed. It was rhythmic but stronger than I would associate with mere vibration.
We had smokers on either side of us, but found the smoke bothersome on the verandah on only one occasion -- IN NO WAY a big deal.
The cabin was spotless when we boarded, and cabin stewards Achmad and Didit were unobtrusively attentive. The cabin is directly across from the steward's facility, which caused no inconvenience whatsoever.
After our previous experience on the Zaandam, where we had to borrow a power strip to overcome the limitations of the single electrical outlet we were afforded, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our cabin had two available outlets at the vanity table across from the sofa and another in the bathroom.
Temperature controls were self-explanatory, responsive, and effective. Read entire member review >>
Great,quiet location,My room located on the 5th floor midway ship, right next to the elevator banks and stairwell, you can get to any part of ship from this cabin location. Again I was surprised that this was a quiet location. Hardly heard any foot traffic. Balcony was adequate Read entire member review >>
