I'm no expert but even for a suite thought it was a bit small, bathroom with italian shower and tub, large closet and nice balcony on the port side. Bed was excellent and Glen made everything possible so we could have a dream cruise. Read entire member review >>
Cabin - the PH I was in was spacious and comfortable. It was a an ADA cabin so the bathroom was barrier free and very, very spacious. At the last minute I upgraded to a very spacious PH suite which included the services of a wonderful butler (Bravo Roni!). As I was sick and cabin-bound for a week, that proved to be invaluable. I was quite disappointed in the size of towels however. Oceania are by far more in keeping with what should be offered on an upscale ship, especially in a suite! And I have to wonder whose idea it was to provide a clock that wasn't visible at night Read entire member review >>
Cabin: We were in a PH-B Penthouse Suite (370 SF) with Butler service on Deck 7 – Suite 765 in the middle of the ship across from a guest laundry facility. The cabin and bathroom were spotless and the balcony while on the small side was immaculate. The furnishings were clearly "not new" but were in good condition. The one oddity was the club chair which was upholstered in a slippery fabric which with the slightest slouching would send you to the ground. The separate shower was nice, though it was rather small for my 6'3" 190lb frame. The walk in closet was particularly popular with Ms. Holmesie and accommodated our two huge hard-sided Tumi suitcases and their contents with ease.
Issues: There was one halogen light in the bathroom which seemed to have a short as some days it decided to work while others not so much. Rajeev kept working with engineering on a permanent solution; however, one was never found. This was our one room hiccup and for that we were glad. Our one real complaint was that there was a terrible odor in the hallway from the day we boarded until day 5 or 6 despite most of our neighbors complaining. Read entire member review >>
Our penthouse cabin was in the middle of the ship in the elevator area. LArger than some and very comfortable.Because of the ocation near AS equipment the cabin noises can be louder than in other locations. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 867 (category B. It's near the laundry room and toward the stern. There was no noise from the laundry room. Soundproofing was excellent and we never heard noise from other cabins. The cabin was very comfortable and, like others, featured a large walk in closet with ample room for suitcases, a marble bathroom with tub and stall shower, a sofa plus table and chairs and a furnished balcony.
