Cabin 8548 was roomy and had plenty of storage space. We didn't come close to using it all. No one ever told us that there was a wealth of information in the center drawer of the vanity/dresser. The room was furnished with a sofa, table and two arm chairs, and the standard 2 twins/1 queen bed. I didn't find the bed comfortable, but my roommate was fine. Luckily the volume setting for announcements must have been set to "low" as we didn't find them disruptive - but there was no volume control in our room. The "mini bar" consisted of a couple of sodas, waters, and little container of candy and pringles. Everything was operational. The balcony is small and contained only two chairs and a table - no footstool or lounger. I could often hear the conversations of our next door neighbors - both on the balcony and in the cabin.
Overall, this cabin is adequate. Read entire member review >>
Very good, plenty of space. A bath, good balcony, comfy seating for four, good bed and pillows and an amazing amount of storage space. But it is the last cabin on starboard side though. Read entire member review >>
Clean much smaller than larger ships, decent size balcony. Wifi very expensive and patchy. Some maintenance required during cruise, toilet not flushing and lights failed in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
My cabin (junior suite) was perfect. I wouldn't have wanted to do such a long cruise especially with the lack of activities in a small room. My floor (8th) was always quiet as well. Read entire member review >>
8042 is on the port side and as it turned out, a great location. While it is underneath deck 9, the pool deck, its located underneath where the ping pong tables were-so there was very little noise except during the day, and we were usually out of the room. Plus we could dart up stairs in the morning and get coffee and sit out on the balcony and watch the world go by. Highly recommend this stateroom. The balcony was great to have. The room was big enough for the two of us. Only complaint was the bathroom sink-the nozzle is either not high enough or centered. Made washing hands not as easy at it should have been. Otherwise though the cabin is fine. Read entire member review >>
Downside: Being positioned On deck 8 Port side we did experience some noise late at night and early morning from chairs and loungers being scraped along the deck and people who wore high heels Read entire member review >>
This is the BEST junior suite on this ship. You cannot get a better view from the dead center of the back of the ship. The room is great. The bed is large, with a nice seating area. Bathroom has a bathtub. Be ware of lack of headroom while in the shower. Anyone over 6 feet tall will have to duck while showering. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8542 is a junior suite. Its a good size. One large room with a bed and sofa and two arm chairs. Bathroom dated. There is a bath but no bath plug. I love having a bath but wouldn't bother as the room isn't that nice. Shower was fine though. Lots of storage space. Almost too much. The room felt bare. Best thing was the location. Near the stairs and you don't hear the noise from the lifts or stairs. You do however hear peoples chairs scrapping in the hot dog bar above and small elephants, sorry, children, running around. If you like to sit out on your balcony a lot and noise bothers you then maybe move further down the ship. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8048 was just about perfect. Wonderful location, port side. Great balcony. Plenty of storage. Good size bathroom with full tub/shower. A little noise when moving the chairs poolside to start and end the day but nothing really bothersome. Read entire member review >>
Junior Suite 8056
Modern fresh cabin, lots of space, large balcony. Comfy large bed. Good quality bedding and pillows. Fridge useful for own drinks! Decent size bathroom with bath and shower. Good storage space. Ipad useful for keeping up to date with expenses and details of itinerary etc. Limited noise from open deck above but not that it spoils the holiday! Read entire member review >>
The Junior Suite was a good size, and the location was great for us. It is close to stairs and central lifts, so easy to find. Amenities were of a high standard and the suite was well maintained. Good sized balcony. iPad and bathrobes were a bonus. Read entire member review >>
6302.... although opposite a small staircase, this only leads to the well being centre, so no one ever uses this stair case. We had a junior suite which was fine for us with a nice balcony, double bed very comfortable and en suite. The grand daughters had 6301 which was an internal room, thought they would moan at not having any windows but they didnt. As there were three of them a bunk bed came out of the ceiling to accommodate the third person. It was a bit cramped in their room with a small shower, but they used ours a lot anyway !!!

JS 8042 was very roomy and well laid out. Only drawback was we were under walkway to Solarium and ping-pong table so had folks clomping overhead during mornings and day. It was quiet late at night. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8078 Junior Suite - Rear port side, good cabin location, very quiet with no noise from upper pool deck (it's directly under the salon so no-one's there in the evening or early morning). Good closet and drawer space. Good bathroom facilities. Great balcony! Read entire member review >>
