There are just over 900 cabins, ranging from insides and outsides to balcony rooms, mini-suites, suites and two two-storey penthouses. All come with tea and coffee-making equipment, air-conditioning, fridges and TV's. Many have baths and showers; all have twin beds that can be converted into doubles.
Cabins are serviced twice a day.
There are no single cabins, but a few standard rooms are sold to people travelling alone for a 70 percent supplement. Several cabins have either sofas that can be converted into a bed for a third person or two additional Pullman-style bunk beds for a third and fourth. A few rooms have interconnecting doors. There are 22 wheelchair-accessible cabins spread across the grades.
The standard inside and outside cabins are 150 square ft. Balcony cabins range from 211 to 246 square ft. Mini-suites and suites range from 382 to 520 square ft., while the two penthouses cover 575 square ft. downstairs and have a 362-sqaure-ft. sleeping area and bathroom upstairs.
As you go up the range, you can expect to find more little extras in the room. Mini-suites and suites get a bigger selection of bathroom amenities, including shampoo and conditioner, a DVD player, binoculars, trouser press, ironing board and indoor Jacuzzi bath; suites add a Hi-Fi system and butler (grade AA/AB suites only).
Penthouse passengers can choose either the Piano Suite, which has a baby grand, or the Library Suite, stocked with books. Each penthouse has a bar area, an upper and lower balcony and butler service.
We chose A Deck and are Cabin was Mid-Ships.
The Cabin Steward was excellent. Always helpful and always smiling.
The size of the cabin was adequate for our needs. Perhaps the wardrobes could have been a little larger with some shelving?
Deluxe cabin on B deck. It was quite spacious and the decor was very good. The bathroom had bath, shower and vanity unit. TV was on the small side but was adequate.
The balcony was good, as we had expected but others we met with balcony cabins on A, C, and D deck...continue

Inside cabin on the top deck was smooth sailing, quiet and a good location to reach the back of the ship. It was adequate and comfortable.
