Wonderful cabin. Very accessible to the front stairwell, but didn't have any extra noise. No additional noise from ship functions, like docking. Completely surrounded by cabins to the side and above, so no noise from staff activities. The window is very large; since this is an adjoining cabin, the bed is on the side wall instead of in front on the window. When the ship is docked, the window is typically right at the same height as the dock, so be aware of you sleep with the curtains open. Read entire member review >>
We were first time cruisers and I wondered how we would do in such a small room. I am a big guy and I wasnt sure quite how I would fit in the bathroom particularly. Turns out it was a problem at all. There was plenty of storage space in the room, more than we needed in fact and the bathroom size was just fine. When the toilets flush there is a high velocity Woosh and one morning the toilet flush was stuck open and wouldnt close. Pretty darn noisy! We called housekeeping, went to breakfast and it was fixed on our return.
We were in an outside stateroom on deck three and it was fine. I think we felt the ship rocking more because we were fairly far forward on the ship. Really wasnt an issue though even with waves a couple of days up to 5 since we were sailing during hurricane season.
Our cabin steward took great care of us and kept the room clean and tidy. Since we had arrived so late the first evening Lockwood didnt have time to make us a towel animal, The next day we mentioned we were looking forward to seeing his creations. Voila! That night there were two towel animals and they were hilarious. Each day after that we had a bat, aardvark, elephant or some other creation and just loved it. Read entire member review >>
