Deluxe Stateroom with Balcony and Bath/Shower Cabin Reviews
Cabin seemed tired and dirty with a lot of dusty nooks and crannies, balcony and its furniture seemed very weather beaten. Air conditioning not working on arrival but thermostat quickly replaced. Toilet gave up by third day. No facility to check onboard account on tv as you can on some other ships. Cabin steward was very helpful though. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very nice and although the wardrobe space was a btit tight it didn't cause us any problems.
Our cabin steward, Iris, was wonderful and worked hard to keep the cabin up to spec. Read entire member review >>
The deluxe balcony cabin on D deck was both comfortable and serviceable, if a little tired in places. Previous cruiser's mishaps on the room carpets and soft furnishings were permanent and there for all to see. The decor and layout is now dated with the ludicrously positioned bed lamps the butt of many visiting comedians. Constant warnings about the frailties of the toilet system seemed to be heeded by the guests. Our cabin's w.c. backed up only once during the nearly three month cruise. The balcony and balcony furniture (2 x deck chairs, 1 x leg stool, 1 x service table) were also a little tired. The cabin stewards worked extremely hard to keep the room in good order and they are to be commended. The air-conditioning, whilst in theory adjustable, was fierce with several passengers having to seek medical advice for sore throat/chest infections. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fitted out same spec as those we've had years ago when we used P&O Irish Sea crossings. Not well thought out layout. Fed up with constant 'don't flush wet wipes ......' Messages on in house tv. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was quite good and kept in good order by our steward Stanley. The position was very good and the balcony clean and tidy, although better more comfortable furniture would be a benefit.
An interactive tv would also enhance the cabin facilities.
There was plenty of cupboard and wardrobe space and the tea/ coffee making tray was kept full at all times.
The cabin bedding looked a little tired at times but was always clean and changed regularly. Better pillows would be nice.
Our downside that we had a loud banging throughout the cruise from the bulkhead wall outside the cabin, which echoed through. Although constant it wasn't consistent and could happen at any time. Day or night. Indeed one night we were awakened at 05.30 by it .despite our very concentrated efforts to get this problem solved, by nor ing the front desk, have the Deck manager hear it, have several other staff members listen toot and have an Engineering Officer hear it, the problem was never resolved fully.
On four of the first six days the toilet system failed to work in the morning. Eventually it was discovered that other passengers were putting foreign items down and blocking the system for everyone. The majority of passengers had cruised before and they really should have known better. Read entire member review >>
Large bed pretty comfortable, large TV but too many repeats. Bath pointless its tiny can only use the shower, balcony good size with recliner chairs. Lighting very dim in cabin. Hairdryer cuts out if you have longer hair as it over heats. No make up/ shaving magnifying mirror. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin (A125) is a disabled access cabin with oceans of space. Well appointed but without the usual sofa and settee which detracted somewhat from being able to relax within the cabin. (This is true of ALL the the cabins for the disabled).
The bathroom was a well-equipped fully functioning wet room.
The balcony was extra large providing good views and more facility to move the loungers around to follow the sun.
There is a long wall in the cabin which could benefit from having 2 or 3 strategically placed hand-grips along it for those disabled people who have some limited ability to move around under their own steam. Read entire member review >>
