Like I said the a/c and the inoperative toilet made for a bad experience. I will say that the bed was comfy - small consolation. The steward while unseen for most of the cruise, did a respectable job and was friendly when we saw him.... but he is not a plumber or an electrician. Read entire member review >>
My parents stayed at a full Ocean View cabin,while we stayed at an inside room (my wife's choice). Both were on Deck 2 (Main Promenade). The rooms are not spacious, but very functional. Very comfortable beds and pillows with good air-conditioning, 32" flat-screen TV and a DVD player. The power outlets have both 115v and 220v, but only 2 in a cabin. (bring a power strip or just an in-the-wall splitter to charge all of your electronics at once).
The Ocean View cabin has a bathtub. The inside cabin only a shower. The hot water comes out instantaneously and with good pressure. Can't complain about that! - Shampoo, Conditioner and soap dispenser unit is affixed to the wall. Very good quality of all 3. There is a wall mounted hair dryer in the bathroom and another portable electric one at the drawer in the room.
Great sound insulation too. The rooms were VERY quite. We never heard a sound from other rooms and all were occupied.
The ship's 57,909 HP engines were doing their job but we did not notice much vibrations or noise in that respect.
The closets provide ample space, enough to stash your suitcases away too. They are also modular and can be set to different configurations for your wardrobe. The safe in the closet is pretty large, good enough to hold our two 12" Netbooks and much more room. They are easy to open/close by just sliding any credit card (no fee) in the slot.

Cabin 2605 Inside. Very spacious with good storage. Bathroom excellent size, good shower. Nice shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided. Dressing gowns very comfortable. Very quiet cabin, midships, near to laundry and stairs. Read entire member review >>
a huge disappointment due to an inattentive attendant;see review above;lacked good service,cleanliness and necesary accomodating items and poor air conditioning the entire time and from what we saw unless it was a suite most cabins not that large. Read entire member review >>
We had an inside cabin in the middle of the ship which didn't rock much even in rough seas. It had plenty of storage space for clothes and soveneirs which we keep accumulating over the 44 days on board. Our stewards were terrific ( one left to get married). We did need wake up calls in the mornings for tours, as no daylight got in to awaken us. Also the toilets on the ship needed periodic fixing as pressure waned in them. Read entire member review >>
Inside cabin. More than adequate.
Close to forward elevators, theatre, bow of ship for outside viewing.
Close to ice and cabin stewards station
Noisy hallway due to lots of kids on this cruise Read entire member review >>
