Tiny; ill arranged cabin although we thought the bathroom looked almost new even though it was typical cruise ship tiny.
Lighting was strange. One main switch worked 1/2 the lights & the other worked the other half. Lights were scattered throughout for both switches therefore we couldn't darken one section and have lights in the other area. Lights were "hot" & heated the room up tremendously.
We did have horribly strong paint or lacquer fumes for several days both in hallways and in our cabin - actually ran us out of the room. HAL did apologize and actually compensated us for it however air & vent intake needs to be better regulated when ship maintenance is being performed.
Senior Room Steward was Tutu and he was terrific.
Even though this cabin is located forward of the front elevators what little motion from waves we had was not uncomfortable. Read entire member review >>
Our room was clean and the steward did a good job. I also have to admit that the bed was more comfortable than I expected. The room did lack power outlets, and I was surprised that there weren't any outlets in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Our cabins were pretty small. DH, the kids and I were in adjoining K category inside cabins on deck 6- 6134 and 6138 specifically. We usually do insides, and still were a little surprised at how small the cabins were. It was a very quiet location though. It was convenient to all dining and club HAL, but quite a hike to the Vista Lounge. Grandpa had a balcony cabin on 8- 8143 aft cabin. It also seemed small compared to other balcony cabins we have had in the past but the balcony was pretty deep. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4023 Inside Standard Stateroom
Plenty of room, lots of closet space, lots of counter space in bathroom with an actual medicine cabinet. Room is above the Vista Lounge and you could hear the shows at night, but they were over early and were never a problem. Read entire member review >>
