Loved our roomy cabin with ample hanging space. Felt spoilt as we have always had a quad room with the kids but this time they had their own room. Port hole was very generous so you could see wonderful views from them. Found the shower very claustrophobic though being in the arch circular shape it was in and couldn't work out why the jug and tea and coffee making facilities had no milk in the fridge. While drawers aren't very deep there is lots of drawers and cupboards. Was concerned being so low down on the ship we would hear lots of engine noise but found the gentle humming we got each evening was very enticing to help us sleep and after a while couldn't hear it at all.

Our room was deck 3, at the end of the hallway. It was very convenient for dining, boarding, disembarking. The biggest drawback was that the housekeeping cart seemed permanently stationed outside of our room. I always felt like we were going into the service closet when we walked to our room. It wasn't a great impressions... We didn't feel too much movemement from the ship and our window was really large. The room was a good size, offered a kettle, and we were comfortable for our 9 days.

Cabin 9346. Starboard side aft of midships. Within 6 yards of the starboard aft elevators, two decks below Windjammer. Noise free. Balcony acceptable although smaller than on Holland & America's New Amsterdam. View unobstructed.
No storage shortage. space under the bed for empty suitcases. No shortage of hangers in the wardrobe. Read entire member review >>
Great location on the ship. Cabin 2260 is located in a small hall way. Very convenient to everything. We did have a problem with fruit flies and a window leak that made a horrible noise all week. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an outside cabin, on Deck 2, Category "I", which is big enough and well equipped. There are lots of hangers in the wardrobe and little storage places hiding where you don`t expect them.
It was quiet, no noise from the neighbourhood. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was an ocean view on deck 2 on the port side aft. If you have a choice on this itinerary, take the port side if you want to see all the action of docking and folks getting off and boarding. The window is quite large, and I only wish it would open! The room has plenty of storage for two people. One interesting thing to keep in mind, if you take a connecting cabin and you are not using the connecting door, they only put a chair and table in your room instead of a couch. We have had both rooms and now know the difference. The couch will block the door, so they only give a chair if you have the connecting room. The non-connecting room has a small couch and table. Just fyi if you do not NEED to connect. All rooms have a safe and fridge. Both are great! The deck 2 aft location was great, it was easy to take the stairs for all the ports, as they get off on deck 1 aft! It was also easy to take the stairs up one deck for the dining room! The aft elevator also let us right off at the Windjammer too on deck 11. Read entire member review >>
