Nice. Quiet. Good view from the veranda. Near forward elevators. Not convenient to many venues except the theater. Good air quality and comfy beds. You need to keep the curtains closed at night for navigation safety, but no big deal. (And the curtains did a great job of keeping port lights out of the room, actually.) Closet and bathroom area a little cramped if two passengers need to get ready at the same time and storage is a little tight unless you use an overhead compartment above the sofa - no problem for me, but probably not easy for people with limited mobility. I'd recommend this room, overall. Read entire member review >>
Bed was very comfortable. Loveseat could have been a bit more plush/comfortable. More storage than we needed. Perfect location in the ship, close to elevators but never a crowded elevator lobby. Loved our balcony! Room stewards Aziz and Dan kept the room very clean & were available to answer any questions whenever we needed. Read entire member review >>
Eko and Kamal were wonderful room attendants. They kept the room clean and neat and we never had to wait for anything.
Our room had a balcony but it had a solid railing rather than a Plexiglas railing. We didn't think of this when we booked. As a result, we felt closed in when we sat there and we couldn't see the ocean unless we stood up. We will be sure to consider this next time.
Room had 2 bathrobes and 2 pairs of slippers for our use.
This room was located near the stairs and elevators which was good. We didn't have to walk far to get anywhere. Despite this convenient location, the cabin was absolutely quiet and we slept very well. Read entire member review >>
Cabin located near the front so you noticed the motion of the ship more. Directly above the Vista Lounge but the cabin was very quiet. Bed was super comfy and the room in general was very nice. Read entire member review >>
Poor layout: hated running into or dodging the bed everytime I came or went.
Ice bucket was way too small. Maybe held enough for two drinks...WTH!
Balcony door key was damaged & the steel wall beneath the railing is a bummer.
Plenty of hangers.
Nice set up in the bathroom.
Plenty of storage (although the under-the-bed drawer is a waste IMO). Read entire member review >>
OLD furniture, cracks, creaks, stains abound. The carpet was covered with stains, furniture was uncomfortable, thread bare and in need of replacement. Beds and pillows were fine. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin 4021 and loved it! We had a balcony which we felt was a "must" for an Alaskan cruise. It was roomy and comfortable. There was plenty of room for clothes and the bathroom was very clean and the showers were always hot. No complaints! Read entire member review >>
cabin 4036 was roomy, near the elevator and vista lounge but at the opposite end of main dining room. no glass under the balcony railing, solid steel, but really did not notice it. Read entire member review >>
We had category VF, Cabin 4028, outside port side deck 4 forward, with verandah. The verandah was 2 feet deeper than the cabins above us. However the bottom panel was steel, not glass, so you had to stand up to see the sea. Lots of closet space, and storage under the bed(2 drawers), plus you could slide your luggage under the bed. The cabin had a love seat which was not comfortable to sit on, a chair and a stool that was under the small vanity. Bath was nice with a shower in the tub, vanity, and toilet. Difficult to control the temperature, and there was no adjustment to the fan speed. A/C was very noisy--I finally put in earplugs so I could go to sleep. Overall a nice cabin.

Our stateroom 4040 was a pleasant veranda cabin with a comfortable bed, bathtub, and abundant storage space. It was very quiet, convenient to the elevators, and very clean. The balcony had a metal side, not Plexiglas, but the view was lovely over the top. Read entire member review >>
Great idea to upgrade to a balcony room. Very nice to wake up to that wonderful view every morning. Plenty of closet space. Our room stewards were fantastic. And the towel creatures - nice touch. Read entire member review >>
