The 65 staterooms are an identical 153 square feet, the only difference being the deck they are located on and size of the windows. Those on Deck 3 have two floor-to-ceiling windows, while cabins one deck down have two good-size windows. Those on the lowest deck have small windows located just at the waterline. The cabins are lovely and thoughtfully designed to make the most of the space.

The color scheme is pale beige and wheat with touches of deep blue. Staterooms are outfitted with a dressing table/desk topped with black-and-beige-veined marble, a small round table and chair, two closets, six drawers, a safe, a hair dryer and a TV that carries CNN. The bathroom is small but very efficient with a marble-tiled shower with stylish fixtures. A white porcelain sink is inlaid in a wood vanity; the drinking glasses are white porcelain -- a nice touch. Beds can be arranged as two singles or one queen; a decent reading light is positioned over each bed. Beds are made with wonderfully comfy duvets and down pillows. Heavy drapes keep out any smidgen of sunlight.

Electric voltage is 220v, so Americans will need a converter and adapter if they bring along any appliances such as a curling iron. The four suites are 225 square feet in size with three floor-to-ceiling windows, a separate sitting area a large TV and a sofa bed that can accommodate a third person. The bathroom features a shower and a full bathtub.
