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.
Quite adequate. Furniture bit dated, scratched in places. Old style TV, lousy receptions even in Port. Clean and adequately furnished. Balcony small but ok (enclosed) ceiling had white-paint peeling, 2 chairs and little table ready for either re-paint or the tip, Bed...continue
Room was fine. Wife thought a little cramped, I thought not. Bathroom surprisingly good, especially as the boat was due for a refit. Sofa was tired - refit should sort that.

room was large enough and kept wonderfully clean by our steward. It was a little worn and dated, but clean and tidy at all times. The best part of the cruise for us
