This ship specializes in affordable cabins with balconies (there are 748). More than 70 percent of the ship's cabins are outside. You get views, but you don't necessarily get a lot of interior space, or outside privacy. On Caribe deck, for instance, from the balcony you can see the balcony below and the people above you can see you. Inside cabins start at 168 square ft., and standard outside cabins are 183 square ft. Balcony cabins run 237 to 300 square ft. (and that includes the verandah). There are bigger mini-suites and suites, and the top Grand Suite is 1,329 square ft.
The decor is rather bland and includes mirrors (to give the illusion of more space). Bathrooms in standard cabins are tiny (but we like the Princess Eucalyptus bath products). Mini-suites and up have bathtubs. Nice bathrobes (waffle cotton) are available for use on request (you can also buy one to bring home for $45). Cabins have safes, refrigerators and hairdryers. In-cabin TVs offer in-house movies, CNN, ESPN, TNT, cartoons and Discovery Channel. You get chocolates at turndown.
The ship has two connecting family suites and 27 handicapped-accessible cabins.
How good is the cabin service? Our cabin attendant called maintenance to replace a light bulb we didn't even realize was out.
Cabin was fine the aft location giving easy access to the pools and the buffet dining. This ship has conventional propeller shafts and suffers from some propulsion based vibration, seeming to "wiggle its tail" a bit at times.
quiet location away from lifts and stairs. room was well thought out with efficient use of space. for Alaska cruise, balcony was sufficiently large. Baja balcony is more private than many other decks. I could see down onto balconies below.
