The ship's 1,301 cabins are divided into four categories. All received mini-facelifts during the dry-dock in the way of new gently hued soft goods. Standard inside and outside cabins number 1,096; of these a whopping 711 (or more than 80 percent) have balconies. There are 22 suites with separate sitting areas and sofa beds, 180 mini-suites, two family suites with interconnected doors, and one grand suite. Suites range in size from 595 to 1,314 square feet, mini-suites are 322 square feet, balcony cabins range from 232 - 274 square feet (including balconies), standard outsides are 168 square feet and inside cabins are 160 square feet. All cabins come with color TV offering a variety of channels.
Interestingly, the mini-suites -- which are quite family friendly for four -- have balconies that jut out from the rest of the ship's verandahs. It's a pro and con. The pro is there's no roof, and it's a great place to watch the stars at night. The con? No privacy. You're totally visible to anyone in a balcony above you.
The Grand Suite has three TV's, refrigerator, wet bar and walk-in closet; regular suites feature separate sitting areas, two TV's, refrigerator and wet bar; and family suites are actually two connected standard cabins that sleep eight.
