Our room was neat and clean. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us. Our steward was fabulous and we loved the balcony. My only complaint was the murphy bed - it was on top of our heads (queen bed). When I leaned up at night I would literally hit my head because it hung down so low. I made me feel claustrophobic.

We had a verandah room, number 5050, on the port side of the ship. It was fairly standard in size. We’ve had larger, and probably one or two smaller. It was an efficiently designed room with good storage space. The balcony was similar to most that we have had. The big difference in this room was found in the bathroom. There was a shower/tub combination instead of the typical shower alone. This was unprecedented in our experience.

The cabin was larger than I expected and had tons and tons of storage, but everything was a bit worn and definitely past it's prime. It was wonderful to have our own private "sail away" party on the verandah or just enjoy pre-dinner cocktails. Sailing in to Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta in the early morning with a view from bed was amazing.

Cabin 4051 should NOT be sold as a wheelchair accessible category VD cabin. Here are some reasons:
1-There was barely enough room for a travel-sized wheelchair to pass by the bottom of the bed.
2-It was extremely difficult for a wheelchair user to climb the ramp, cross the door jamb and go down the ramp onto the balcony, even with great assistance and the door held open. It was very dangerous to come down the ramp on the balcony side and need to immediately turn sharply to the left while on the ramp (or hit the railing).
3-The television is too small and too far away for a wheelchair user (unless the wheelchair is at an angle on the ramp toward the balcony).
4-There is insufficient space at the bathroom sink.
5-The lighting in the cabin was very poor.
6-There was no seating area in the cabin, as was described for VD cabins.

cabin #4183, Rock and Roll Baby, with plenty of black soot, creaks, groans, and plenty of vibration. The drawers at the foot of the bed rolled in and out all night long, later on an officer, told me it wasn't the ship at all; that there were ghosts in those stern cabins, and they climb in and out of those drawers! (i swear to god) It is a superb cabin to commit suicide from however; you look down into the propeller wash, it's hypnotizing, it really is, and you realize you have been burned for $1200 to cruise around nowhere, and you can't get off !! The room stewards were VERY GOOD, probably the BEST SERVICE ON THE WHOLE DAM boat. We gave them small gifts besides their gratuities.

Cabin 1122, farthest port aft, under dining room, ceiling noise from moving furniture all night. Sleep compromised. Also engine and vibration noise. Cold water in shower which was eventually fixed. Cabin 4134, very nice, more spacious with verandah but hot water was lacking for the shower.

The ship was kept very clean, including our cabin. However, our cabin's furnishings were a bit run down. (EX: The fabric on the sofa was worn, the deck chair cushion was torn, the side table was chipped)The queen bed was very comfortable. Our 12 year old daughter said her sofa bed was on the lumpy side but she conked out pretty quickly each night.

This cabin is located forward and on the port or left side of the ship on the 4th deck. It is right off the elevators. Good storage, great location and nice balcony. Bathroom has a tub and good amount of storage as well. It does have a connecting door which can cause noise issues if you have noisy neighbors - so please consider this. It is a true 3 person cabin - the couch is not a full size couch - it opens to a twin bed and you cant get to the veranda when it is out.

Plenty of room. The couch was located close to the window which makes it difficult to deal with a wheelchair. The room has a tub which was nice in bathing our wheelchair bound daughter.

VD 4136 - aft port side with deeper balcony (about 2 extra feet). Nice location directly above the entrance to the dining room. Not above or below any public room. Near elevators, but was never noisy with people coming and going. Only noticed noise on the last evening when porters were bringing luggage to the lobby.

Port side is great for private viewing of ports when coming in on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary.

Pampered Ensign Starboard
Our cabin was very quiet. It had an angled balcony, which besides being slightly larger, offered us a complete view of the whole side of ship. Our location was one stairwell and one floor from the dining hall.

Good location, although it's near the aft elevators and there's considerable traffic and the elevator chimes can be heard. Might not be the best for those who insist on absolute quiet. Very short distance to the main dining room.

Large veranda, comfortable bed, loved the tub/shower combo. Little attention to detail by steward and maintenance staff.

Comfortable, especially liked bathtub. Fabric on sofa and plastic "wicker" on verandah furniture were a little frayed.
