Cabin 5023: Very small – smallest inside cabin we’ve had in over 30 cruises. Other inside cabins we have had on this same class of ship are configured similar to the outside cabins, but this one was sideways and has awkward floor plan. The cabin steward kept it very clean and towels were replaced daily. Bed sheets were good and bed comfortable. This cabin has a noise problem, the back wall must back up to a storage room. On nights where the sea was rolling there was a loud banging on the wall next to the bed. Something in the storage room behind it needed battened down to prevent the battering noise during rolling seas. Yes, we mentioned it to the cabin steward and he asked his supervisor to check out what the cause of noise was. We even asked the captain about the noise on his Q&A session but nothing was done.

I was given cabin 1026. In this cabin, the floor was blackened, as if there had been a fire and burned ash had been scoured into the floor. Was told they knew about the floor and can't get it clean, that it will be replaced when ship is in dry dock next. Said they didn't know what it was. I decided to overlook it and have a nice cruise. The cabin was huge with the 2 beds together, large closets, a half-circle couch (with 2 cigarette burn holes) and a nice counter space. Small flat screen TV and DVD player.
The next morning i noticed flakes of black on my white hand towels and a fine powder of black on the toilet seat. Again i complained and was told there was no other cabin and the ship was full. A few hours later before dinner i returned to find more flakes that i now realized were ash and a fine powder again on the toilet seat. This time i wouldn't be put off as i was needing the inhaler every 2 hrs because of the air in the cabin. Went again to front desk and talked to about the 4th different person altho they said they knew my problem. Took her to the cabin and showed her that the ash was coming out of the intake vent in the bathroom, which was also blackened. They assisted my move to cabin 1116 which had somehow come available.
Cabin 1116 was exactly like 1026 but with fresh air and a clean floor. The DVD player was broken and after they took it out 3 times i demanded a different one and they appeared with a brand new one. Read entire member review >>
Very nice basic inside cabin. Deck 6 is a workout, you must climb or descend 3 decks to get to anything. This was a good thing for me to get exercise but you may feel differently. Read entire member review >>
