There are ten different categories of cabins, ranging from single cabins to penthouse suites. They include twin and double bed configurations, plus cabins with one or two additional beds in the form of single and double sofa beds and pull-down berths. There are also a number of interconnecting cabins that are ideal for families. All 934 cabins have been refurbished in the refit, with new soft furnishings and flat screen TV.
The decor is neutral but pleasing and there is ample wardrobe and drawer space for a long cruise. All cabins are provided with safes, minibars containing bottled water, tea and coffee making facilities, and hair dryers; all stored in an ingenious way so as to make best use of the space. There is a TV viewing guide in the cabin with a choice of news, feature films and children's programmes. There are 16 wheelchair accessible cabins, well equipped for the disabled passenger and mostly close to lifts.
Bathrooms are supplied with shower gel, shampoo and conditioner, body lotion, tissues, shaver point and ample towels including large bath/pool towels. All suites have baths and showers. All outside cabins and balcony cabins have either a bath or a mini bathtub and shower, apart from the following categories which have a shower only: JB, LC, OA, OB, OC and OD. All bathrooms have plenty of storage space for personal items.
Inside cabins measure 150 square feet, with a large mirror instead of a window, and standard outside cabins are 150 square feet with a picture window. The balcony cabins measure from 211 to 246 square feet. Our balcony cabin on A deck had twin beds, a two-seater sofa and coffee table, dressing table with large mirror, excellent lighting and concealed shelves on either side. Drawer and cupboard space was ample and well distributed. The balcony had two chairs and a table but it was very small and showed signs of wear. The mini suites and suites measure from 382 to 520 square feet. Amenities include special toiletries, iron, ironing board, trouser press, binoculars, stereo, bathrobe and slippers, plus chocolates, flowers and Champagne on arrival.
There are two two-storey penthouses; the Piano Suite, so named because it comes complete with a baby grand, and the Library Suite, which is stocked with books. Each has a bar, upper and lower balconies, and butler service.
