Cabin was nice and everything functioned (better than the N GTY we had booked) Lots of closet space but a bit short of drawers. Close to the elevator banks but no noise other than when the ship was tendering (or the hatch was open (mechanism for stairway and hatch almost right below). Got a bit warm towards/around the equator but fortunately it was cool once we got to the coast with the winter fog and all.

Window was a bit dirty and that was never washed but then again, there's always sea spray at this level.

Toilet did stop working one day but that was fixed relatively quickly (seems it was a system problem in our section).

Didn't use the CRT tv other than for outside views and positioning, nor used the DVD player,

Great experience Luci Curly Girl

Our cabin on Deck 1 was comfortable for two persons with plenty of storage space. Our cabin was quiet, except when the ship was being maneuvered into port and the thrusters were in use, but there was a sign on the wall about this, so we weren't alarmed. We didn't feel much motion on this lower deck.

Very spacious cabin on the lowest (Dolphin) deck with unobstructed ocean view and very convenient location just steps from the aft elevators. Fairly quiet location considering it was so convenient to the elevators, we only occasionally heard our neighbors cabin door slam but never heard talking or any other loud noises. There was a faint whine that may have been from the propellers but it was constant and somewhat soothing to sleep to. The lower deck location was a plus when we hit rough seas a few times as I noticed the upper decks encounted much more pronounced swaying and pitching during those times. The bathroom was a nice size and if you like a tub you'll be pleased. I prefer a stand-up shower stall with a door rather than the shower curtains that always let water end up on the floor. The water pressure and supplied bath soaps, etc were very nice and high quality. There was an abundance of storage and closet space as well as a large sofa and coffee table in the stateroom. The beds were comfortable but we had to ask for additional blankets early on when the room was quite chilly at night. They reset the thermostat on the second day however and that seemed to make the A/C adjustments much better. The room decor was typical but everything in the room was in great shape considering the age of the ship. The carpeting had recently been replaced and all the bed linens were high quality. They supplied robes which was a nice treat.

1958, no significant problems. The window was dirty, you could see a bit through half of it, the other half too cloudy to really see anything. Very quiet location near the end of the hall. Almost no foot traffic. Felt some vibrations when docking, but nothing serious. Plenty of closest space for four. Main beds very comfortable, sofa bed not that great.

Our cabin was pretty spacious, with a large window, sofa, coffee table, vanity table and chair. The bathroom was roomier than on other cruises, and having a tub was nice (though realistically, I couldn't see myself squeezing into that small tub). There was tons of closet space in our cabin! The bed and linens were very comfortable, although truthfully, two twin beds put together will never feel like one big queen bed. It's just hard to have that big crack in the bed, you know?

Smelly Old Ship! Nice Crew! EdisOnTheRoadAgain
Smelled awful. But it was bigger than expected. While close to the elevators the noise came from the Stewards elevator and service area.
