The first night was a bad start - the phone in the room would not work and the room smelled so heavily of Diesel fuel that I could not breathe - I have asthma. They re-routed some vents which helped, but not until 1:00 AM. The next night the fumes were back so we changed rooms. For this they provided a free dinner in the Italian restaurant - worth $20 - less than the wine we bought. The next room, the toilet would not work on four occasions. They said someone had flushed a tissue. I cannot imagine that the system is so poorly designed that it blocks when someone in another room flushes the weak fall-apart tissues. The third room was better, but we were given several non-working cards, and finally after about 1.5 hours they managed to get keys that would work. Both times we were moved to an inferior cabin than the first - i.e., what we booked! Read entire member review >>
Clean and comfortable, but showing some wear. Quiet other than people who insisted at yelling at each other in the hallway. Some odors you seem to frequently find on cruise ships. We were contented with our stateroom. Read entire member review >>
Comfortable room with good sea views on Main Deck. Bathroom a little small, but is expected. Good storage and closet space. Most important - mid ship area, when sea was rough we barely felt it. Read entire member review >>
This was a wonderful cabin! It was quiet and convenient to everything! This cabin is located at the end of a row of cabins mid-ship with only one cabin on one side and no cabins across the hall. In traveling from Boston to New England we saw wonderful views from the large window. The sunrises were breathtaking! This cabin is located near the elevators and stairs making it easy to navigate the ship. It is also in the mid-ship area so we did not receive much sea movement. Everything worked well and the cabin stewards were so very hospitable and attentive! Read entire member review >>
We had an oceanview cabin (DA 551) on deck 5 towards the bow. It is close to the elevators, a bit noisy as everyone goes past your cabin. Always some rude inconsiderate people talking loudly at 1 in the morning or really early in the morning. Directly across from cabin 553 (next door) are the room attendants who start work early and make a loud of noise because of the nature of their work. Also, right above you on the lower promenade deck on Deck 6 are the cable fittings which attach to the ramp for disembarkation onto ground level from deck 3, in Quebec City, Charlottetown and Syndey, when a bridge or jetway is not used. If you are an early rise and won't be bothered by the noise, great. If not, pick another cabin. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine, except for the bathtub. It was very deep, and dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and gel were too high to reach if one chose a bath instead of a shower. Controls (faucets, shower, temperature) were difficult to maneuver.
Good sized room. Nice to have a sofa in addition to the beds. Read entire member review >>
Good amenities. Great mattress, lots of closet space, drawer space, a full-sized tub and love seat.
Next to a main gang way. While it was never opened, it was noisy. If you port on that side on disembarkation day, that gangway will be opened very early in the morning to prepare. Loud banging coming from the outside of the ship (we surmised that it was a tender being raised and lowered each day) will awaken you at 5AM every morning.
Very convenient to elevators and self-serve laundry. Overall we had quiet passengers aboard, but this room does have potential to be loud as it is on the corner by the elevators.
Great A/C. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was in an excellent location, right next to where we boarded and disembarked so no dragging suitcases up and down the stairs. It was also very convenient while in port since the gangway was down 2 levels on the nearby staircase or elevators. This cabin is very spacious and provides a great view of Hamilton while in port--some of the cabins aft have views blocked by a building while in Hamilton. Though the Lower Promenade walking deck is overhead, I only heard faint noise a couple of times. Read entire member review >>
The cabine on this ship was probably the best of all the ships I have been on. The bed's were awesome. The closets are great. There were two closets and you could convert part of the closet space into shelf space. Read entire member review >>
