The cabin was bigger than I expected. Our bed was a bit hard, but we slept well. We could hear noise from the Centrum at night, and a constant hum, but we aren't that particular, and the noises didn't bother us. The cabin was very close to the elevators and stairs that put us right at the door of the main dining room, so we were very happy with the location. Read entire member review >>
Pretty good location for the price; convenient to the elevators. The ship is older and needs refurbishing, but we found the cabin to be surprisingly attractive with a larger window than expected. The bed was terrible and we didn't sleep the first night. Our steward Daisy managed to replace the thing. The shower is awful but the rest of the bathroom is fine. Read entire member review >>
It was a very quiet location. Less rocking than other areas which is very important is you tend to suffer seasickness. Cleaning stuff in the hallway most of the time. I guess they have to put it somewhere. The room is very tiny but pretty and had plenty of storage space. The bed was very comfortable. The view from the window was nice. The T.V. was a flat screen with easy swiveling. The shower was fine although small. It was a sit down vanity built in which was nice. Read entire member review >>
Our Cabin was on Deck 3 starboard, all the way to the rear. Great location, quiet. The cabin itself - it's a cruise stateroom; so, it's the same of what I had previously. I just can't imagine NOT having a window. It's dated, but was clean. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was not huge but what we expected for what we paid, bathroom was good there was lots of cupboard space and even managed to put the empty suitcases under the beds, a small old fashioned T.V. but it worked O.K. and a small coffee table with easy chair, we managed for 14 days, overall it was spotlessly clean and adequate.

Rooms are tiny but you are barely in there... The bed was very, very comfortable. It had wonderful pillows and we requested two more as we enjoyed being propped up to look out the window. The bed spread was so soft and squishy and felt great. The towels are soft too. I asked for extra towels the first day and Herman always made sure we had some in our bathroom from then on. The rooms are very clean and our steward cleaned the bathrooms and room twice a day. Our room was on the 3rd floor and the elevator was not too far away in both directions. Depending on where we were going.. we just used that elevator. I never could hear the people next door.. the rooms are pretty quiet... except when someone nearby would let there bedroom door slam shut.. but we were probably doing that ourselves too. ;) We didn't have an ice bucket at first but I just asked and it magically appeared. The shower stall is very small but easy to use and I liked that I could adjust the handle to fit my height (short) and my husband could move it back up to fit his height (tall) and I always had hot water... The shower came with a dispenser with shampoo with conditioner already in it and a bar of soap.. that is it. No lotion or seperate shampoos, ect. The closet was big enough for all our clothes and so were the drawers.. and little cub-by areas.. we put all our stuff away and then stored the luggage under the bed to get them out of the way. I was glad I brought an extension cord as there was only one plug at the vanity area. The TV showed some movies and then always replayed the shows on board the next day incase you missed them. I enjoyed the room and wish I was there right now relaxing as I kept myself so busy that I need a vacation from my vacation. lol happy sailings Read entire member review >>
cabins 3510 and 3512 were at the front of the ship, and we felt the ship's pitching movement there. The 2 portholes meant that it was not very light, and we needed to have the lights on when we were in there. The wardrobes were poky, the television was small and overall they could do with a refurbishment. Read entire member review >>
2038 & 2040 Interconnecting Oceanview Rooms on level 2. We had no problem with these rooms. Intact they are located very close to the lifts which we found handy with a toddler. Read entire member review >>
We had an oceanview room on deck 3 just off midship which suited us perfectly. Room was comfy enough for the 2 of us. There was no fridge, only an ice bucket although we were surprised to find a kettle and coffee mugs supplied along with some tea and coffee suppilies etc. There was a slight vibration and humming noise in our cabin, mainly while the ship was running at high speed. We didn't notice it at all when returning to Sydney as the ship was travelling a bit slower. The noise and slight vibration weren't an issue for us however...quite the opposite in fact. It helped us get to sleep!
I suggest if you are prone to sea sickness you take others advice in here and choose a cabin lower down in the ship and more towards the middle as well. The movement is less noticable here. We spoke to a few people who were in cabins on above decks and either close to the bow (front) or stern (rear) of the ship who suffered sickness much worse than those of us lower down and more centred.

The room size was not overly spacious, but it was large enough to accommodate the two of us and our belongings with storage space to spare. The sink in the bathroom was chipped and worn and the decor could have used some updating, but it was clean and functional. The shower was small. We did not hear noise from any of the adjacent cabins. Read entire member review >>
