The room we had 3447, was very quite, did not have any noises in the night and is on a small interior hall that doesn't get a lot of through traffic. The room was moderately sized and decorated in good taste for the age of the ship. No refrigerator in the room.
There were some maintenance issues that needed to be taken care of: Cabinet hinges needed to be tightened so the door would open and close properly. The bathroom door had a screw that I kept finger tightening so that it would not fall out. One of the drawers was not on track and would fall when pulling out, so we could not use.
The biggest issue I had with the ship was awful mattress. The 3 people in my party all had issues with the beds and could not get a good nights sleep.
It also seemed that everywhere you went on the ship around the cabins were cleaning carts, stacks of supplies, vacuums and other stuff that the housekeeping staff would leave in the halls. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was small but met all of our needs - clean and very quiet as well. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and modern. The flat screen tv was a plus as it offered a live-cam of the ship and a channel of events and excursions. Just perfect in my opinion. Read entire member review >>
We had booked a Large interior. If this was it I certainly would not like a standard interior. There was a double warderobe but only 1.1/2 hanging spaces. The rest taken up by a protruding partition. No where to store the cases as they were too big to go under the bed. The bathroom had a shower and W.c clean and adequate. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin: Well on our first walk in to it hubby and I both looked at each other and asked where di the money we paid for the "Large" Interior go, we were both quite surprised on just how small it really was. To be honest with 2 adults and 2 children I really struggled to find enough draw space to fit all our clothes into, and because not all bags would fit underneath our bed we then had to sacrifice some of our hanging space in the cupboard in order to fit the bags so hanging space was a bit of an issue. TV oh my goodness it was woeful. There were no decent movie stations and if there was a movie it was one of those old fashioned ones and even sometimes black and white, don't expect to go and on there and see anything half modern because it just didn't happen. The only kids channels were a movie channel which kept constantly showing 3 Barbie movies over and over again and also a cartoon station but that was about it. I think on the last night we got to see one of the spy kid movies BUT that was it for the tv. The bathroom was the smallest bathroom I have even been in onboard a cruise ship, and if you are a largish person then be warned you will more then likely have the shower curtain sticking to your butt whenever you turn around. the beds I have to say were fine they were comfy and even the pillows we good. So our cabin in my opinion didn't fare up as well as some cabins we have been in, but we had a really lovely cabin steward so that made up for it. Read entire member review >>
Lrg may not necessarily mean large! but big enough for a room that you barely spend time in. I would hate to see what small would look like. It was neat and organised, the bed was semi comfi. The bathroom was very compact making it difficult when trying to have a shower. Room service was great. Read entire member review >>
We spend very little time in our state room when cruising but were very happy with ours and the room we had to move around in.There was ample room for hanging clothes and plenty of draw space for the remainder Read entire member review >>
The only recommendation is to bring "flatter" suitcases. The flatter cases fit under the beds. Because ours did not fit, we were a wee bit cramped on one side of the bed. Oh and bring a multi-slot extension cord - there is only 1 outlet and it is nowhere near the headboard. You may also want to bring some binder clips to weigh down the shower curtain and some magnets so you can leave notes on each others' doors. Especially with a large group - it is nice to know that you are knocking on someone in your groups door .... Read entire member review >>
This room is a large interior room. It was quiet and comfortable the entire time, except for disembarkation day (the last day) when the bustle of the stateroom attendants was audible and equipment bumped up against the room walls starting at 6am. Our room is right off the hallway to the attendant cabin, and possible other interior rooms. Because it's an off-main hallway, this is where the attendant would park his cart, and sometimes bump the wall. This was rare, but for sensitive people, it may matter. The room was ever-clean and tidy. Our attendant could not have been better - seriously. The bath is small but fit fine for us. A good selection for an interior cabin. Read entire member review >>
Great layout with ample space for 2. No noise during entire voyage at night and an inside cabin means great nights sleep. Some noise from pool deck ( above)with kids running. Read entire member review >>
Our rooms 3573 and 3571 were lovely and quiet, great air conditioning and completely dark at night. Both cabins had twin beds pushed together to make a queen bed and our kids cabin had an additional single bunk. Beds and pillows were comfortable, bedding crisp and clean, there was a mini bar but no fridge (which would be an improvement). Flat screen TV showed a range of channels (only one from Australia - ABC) with a lot of US stations. There was a kids channel which was great for late night entertaining of the kids if they weren't ready for sleep. The bathroom looked new and always clean - although for my husband (6ft 4 in) the shower was a tad small. There is storage under the bed. Lots of drawers and a good sized wardrobe. There is also a safe which was great for those items you wanted to lock away. Read entire member review >>
CABINS: We were in cabin 8085 and 8087 on deck 8 towards the rear of the ship with an inter-connecting door, one cabin for my husband and I and one for our 4 daughters. We did initially freak out when we saw only two beds in the girls room but that became 4 beds after dinner when they set the room up properly. Both cabins were clean, neat, new and spacious considering you are on a ship not in a hotel room. We had two new, clean and neat bathrooms with fresh crisp linen in both cabins. Our cabins were super quiet, peaceful and comfortable not near the lifts or public spaces. Each cabin comes with a hairdryer and you will need an adapter if you wish to use your straightener or shaver as the plugs are USA based. Both cabins were cleaned twice a day to such a high standard that even a matron with white gloves would have been pleased :-) Read entire member review >>
Never felt closed in even though there were no windows. When debarking for Vancouver BC our closest elevator & immediate hallway were blocked off for passenger screening. Not too inconvenient but had to go long way around to get off ship at exit just 10 feet away. No noise problems, our adult kids were in room next to us & we never heard a peep from them. Loved having a room safe, plenty of storage but hanging formal attire was a bit cramped but workable. New carpeting, linens, TVs & bathrooms were awesome. No IPods yet due to technology glitch. Small (and I mean small) sofa was comfy. We took this room knowing we did not plan to stay in there very much. Would take similar room again if I had to. Read entire member review >>
4451 & 4453 are directly under the casino and we could hear it but it wasn't bad. Good location to both elevators though in mid-ship. Easy to get to buffet and to main dining from that location. Read entire member review >>
We were in stateroom #3315, on the third-deck of the ship (deck 2 is the lowest-level for passengers; decks 1 and below are for crew and work areas). We paid for the cheapest quarters (which is 141 sq. ft.), but we got assigned to a 154 sq. ft. room (which is the most frequent size). We didn't have a window, but we didn't miss it; other passengers who had windows didn't think much of them anyhow.
Soundproofing between the rooms on all sides was good, unless there was unusual rowdiness going on somewheres down our hallway or there was unusual crew conversation and/or clanking of carts and tools going on in conjunction with shipboard maintenance that was happening in hidden deck areas behind our stateroom.

We were in 4563 inside midship. Great location...low & mid if the weather/seas might be a bit iffy. LOVED the tea kettle & ceramic mugs. No fridge. We didn't hear noise from the centrum. But...it turned out to be an adjoining cabin and we had a family with 2 small children next door beyond the connecting door who did a lot of screaming. It was mostly temper and spoiled child demanding attention. The baby woke at 4 am. After the 2nd night started wearing earplugs which I bring but hardly ever have to use.
They had just brought on new mattresses for most of the ship which I unfortunately had a severe allergic & asthmatic reaction the the outgassing...even had a rash after sleeping in the beds 1 night. Extremely strong chemical smell. The housekeeping staff had to get me back an old mattress so I could cut back on the inhalers I had been forced to use...which I always travel with just in case. Housekeeping were very accomodating and helpful. Read entire member review >>
We were in 3077. cabin creaked a bit during rough weather, and you could hear footsteps and music from above at times, although it didn't seem to go too late. the family were in 3085, and it was noisier than ours, due to dance floor above. Despite this, I'd stay in the cabin again. Good location, great stateroom attendant. Read entire member review >>
Perfectly adequate and perfectly dark at night. Two pullman beds descend from the ceiling for children, and fold up during the day.
Located mid-ships very close to the formal dining room, it was easy to access all parts of the Ship. Read entire member review >>
