Deluxe Ocean View Stateroom with Balcony (E3)
Decks: Deck 7
we had an E3 handicap room since the wife is in a wheelchair. very spacious and well equipped. only complaint about room would be the entrance to the bathroom is hard to navigate. there is a ramp up to the bathroom and a raised door jam. very hard to get a running start up ramp and over jam, very jarring experience every time she went in there. would be difficult for someone in a manual chair to negotiate this. nice ramp and easy access to balcony, plenty of room to turn around, but again kind of steep so think it would be hard for a manual chair. roll in shower was spacious, but has usual problem of water escaping across floor. wish someone would invent a roll in shower that contains the water. room was exceptionally clean and comfortable. bed was nice and firm like we prefer. overall a very handicap friendly room

Balcony, starboard side, midships. Deck 7 is right above the lifeboat awnings which the maintenance crews walk on when in port. If your balcony curtains are open, well, prepare to be embarrassed if you just got out of the shower.

Cabin 7550. We found it was easy get to everything. Lifts and stairs were close by. Cabin was very quiet. There was a good amount of storage for a small room. We had a good view out to sea but couldn't look down and see the water because of the life boats. Good size balcony. 3rd bed was a single sofa bed, OK for a young child but would have been very uncomfortable for an adult or teenager.

We wish the showers were as big as on the Carnival Dream.

Partially obstructed view due to window cleaning rig. Also obstructed downward by awning over lifeboats. Room small, but adjoining room with family a huge plus. This is one of the smaller balcony rooms, so a bit cramped. Fold out bed from love seat worked fine for small child.

My balcony cabin had a large balcony and plenty of drawer space. sadly above me was the cafe and i could hear moving of chairs from my cabin and balcony was quite noisy at night.

Cabin 7122 - Great size with a decent size bed. Fantastic uninterrupted view. Spotless and plenty of storage in the hallway. Bathroom was a good size with endless hot water!

We were a bit disappointed in the size of our cabin ... but we chose the cabin so it was our fault. Would go for a larger cabin next time. Plenty of storage space and we were on for 18 days. Bed very comfortable and even though we were below a bar and night club we couldn't hear a thing.

Radiance Alaska 8/5 phredclark
back of ship, great view, spacious balcony with nice chairs and table. TV is terrible, never worked and repairs failed. Funky smell that was helped by the air cleansing unit the room steward brought. I love the location but the room was a little disappointing.

Very far forward, which we liked. Can watch the crew work on the flyover bridge at eye level. Great view, very quiet as at the end of the hall. You will feel movement here, up high and forward. We had lots of movement as we had rather rough seas several days (6 foot).

Cabin 8580 Our cabin opened up around 2:30 so we headed downstairs. Our bags were already at the cabin door. Our room was very nice and clean. I ordered the birthday decorations and they were up and waiting. $31 is a little much for them but it's the idea of your significant other walking into the surprise that makes it worth it. The cabin was roomier than expected with the exception of the shower WOW! It is really small but I guess that's normal for what I'm told. The cabin had lots of closet space and a mini bar under the television that we did not discover until we were leaving the ship on the last day. Balcony was not huge but big enough for two chairs and a table. Lambert, our stateroom attendant, was absolutely wonderful. After unpacking we headed out to get a bite to eat.

We spent our Alaska cruise portion of our trip in cabin number 1604. Cabin is located aft on the 10th deck ...... excellent choice for the Alaska south bound cruise. We ordered room service and enjoyed several lunches and breakfast on our balcony.

1002- Deck 10, second cabin from the front, just aft of the port bridge extension. It didn't block our view, and the Captain waved at us a few times as we watched him maneuver into port. Some wave motion due to forward position and high deck, but only just noticeable. Immediately above on deck 11 is a Massage and Spa. Noise was minimal, but occasionally we heard furniture being moved once in awhile. Overall, a quiet cabin.

Obsturcted view downwards due to life boat canopy, and sideways due to ship's hump. Old shower style with clinging curtain and shallow lip resulting in water spilling out. Otherwise quiet cabin location.

great location, bed very comfortable, lots of creaking and noises, closet space ok, balcony too small and you can't look down at the water.

Balcony view is blocked by the top of the lifeboats. You can see out, but not down and it is somewhat obstructed when you look out while sitting down.
