Small by comparison with what we remember from other ships. Very clean. We complained about the noise from the plumbing system early on and were entirely satisfied with a cabin switch. Read entire member review >>
The state rooms weren’t large – we had our French Balcony room on the top deck – but they were nicely decorated with lots of mirrors and the beds comfortable. I felt that the rooms though could have been roomier with a queen bed rather than the king. The rooms were serviced every day with turn down at night,We did have problems with the room: twice the toilet flooded and unfathomably the cabin lights switched themselves on during the night or early in the mornings, which made for some disturbed sleep. A few other passengers suffered too.We discovered later that all the lights were on wifi and the signals were getting crossed. They would be hard wired at the end of the year we were informed.

416 is 3 doors down from dining room which made it very convenient, and not too noisy. Enjoyed the French balcony but would really have loved a full balcony. Bedding was delightful. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was on the small side but very well appointed. The bed very comfortable with two duvets. We had a lot of storage space. The only small complaint was that the cupboard area was not well insulated so you could hear clearly if your neighbor was in their cupboard. However if the doors were closed, and they were most of the time, the sound was blocked.
In river cruising we found it is very important to check out which side of the ship is the best for a view during the day. We did not choose the best side, since in most of the ports we were tied up to a dingy dock or other river boat rather than having a view of the river. I would also add that in river cruising it is important to choose a deck where you can see out during the day when you are docked. Decks 1 and 2 would not have been good for us, however 3 which had fixed windows and 4 with doors that open to a non balcony were great.
Other oddity we noticed in river cruising, with the door open it is very quiet at night since there is no sound of the surf. Read entire member review >>
