In all, there are 21 categories of accommodations, ranging from 140-square-foot singles to the five 550-square-foot Premier Suites.

Set high up on the Marquee Deck (Deck 9), each Premier Suite offers a separate bedroom and sitting room, a balcony, a fairly roomy bathroom that includes a bathtub with shower, a DVD/CD player alongside a colour TV, and both a mini-bar and refrigerator.

Marquee Suites (440 square feet), Superior Suites (250 square feet), Balcony Suites (215 square feet), Balcony Cabins (160 square feet) and Superior Single Balcony Cabins or Single Balcony Cabins (both 150 square feet) also have balconies, each with two chairs and a table. However, the 2011 refit included the addition of much bigger lifeboats, so many balcony cabins now have fully restricted views. Check the deck plans very carefully before booking if a balcony is important to you. All other outside categories have picture windows, except for categories D, E, F, some K and L. These have portholes. The 17 new inside cabins, graded N, are roomy doubles in a blue colour scheme with compact bathrooms that offer power showers.

All cabins come equipped with private baths or showers, hair dryers and flat-screen colour TV's. Four cabins on the Lido Deck (Deck 7) are equipped for disabled passengers, and some categories can accommodate three, four or even five sleepers. There is plenty of storage and good hanging space. Bathrooms vary considerably according to cabin grade, but all come with shower gel/shampoo in refillable dispensers in the showers, and soap is available in similar dispensers by the basins. Every cabin contains tea- and coffee-making facilities.

Bathrooms, carpets and soft furnishings have been renewed throughout the ship, though some of the cabins with portholes do reflect the vessel's age.

Twin port holes. Excellent views. Cabin offset from main corridor so no noise at all. Mid-ship position so little movement of ship felt. Crowded bathroom - toilet too close to shower. Long vanity mirror situated on outside bathroom door, not ideal as it should be on a...continue

The cabin was adequate. There was plenty of drawer and wardrobe space well supplied with hangers. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The only negative was the noise from the air-con unit which could be adjusted for temperature but could not be turned off.
