Yorktown Cabins

Editor Rating
Cabins
3.0
Yorktown has seven classes of cabins onboard, ranging from 130 square feet to 169 square feet (each of the latter including a small balcony). All have clock radios with an iPod docks, two beds in either queen or L-shaped twin configurations, and desks with a chairs. Regardless of cabin type, Yorktown's rooms have plenty of storage, with three closet-style cabinets, two of which contain drawers. Suitcases fit under the beds. Cabins do not have TV's or other entertainment options; outlets are American.

Main Deck cabins are the cheapest and seem a little narrower than those in other classes. All staterooms have large picture windows and sit well above the water. Lounge Deck cabins, accessed via an interior hallway, feel lighter than those below, and they, too, have picture windows (which have ledges where one sleeper can place his or her things).

Toward the stern, Lounge Deck contains six cabins with doors facing outdoors, and Promenade Deck is entirely made up of this room style. Each has two windows. The most expensive rooms on Sun Deck have queen beds and their own balconies, separated by dividers. Chairs on each balcony provide great seats for drying wet swimsuits or taking in the sunsets.

Bathrooms in all of the cabin classes are the same, each with a shower and toilet in one small room. A plastic sheet covers the head while you shower. Water pressure is great, and there's a line to dry your clothes. Toiletries from Antica Farmacista were provided, and each room has a hair dryer, a pullout makeup mirror, a Weight Watchers scale and two robes and slippers. Towels are on the thin side; don't expect fluffy animals placed on your bed at night. The rooms are kept neat and clean, and turndown service includes a Hershey's kiss.

Our cabin was worn and somewhat shabby. There were loose fixtures on the ceiling that could have been fixed with a screwdriver. The shower was very tight, and at 6 feet John had to duck to get under it. At one point it only produced scalding hot ... Read more

The cabin met my expectation. There were no issues. Actually there was just as much closet space as we had on the larger holland America ships. Of course we over packed, usually do. Shower curtains stick to you and we heard the bow thruster. But we ... Read more
