The rooms were very nice. They were a lighter color, new carpet, beds, closets (smaller than before), desk area for computer and camera stuff, refrigerator, safe, liquor selection, a couple of chairs and table and a nicely updated bathroom. In the desk they had two USB connections, hidden at the end of the desk on the side near the window. They also had USB connections in the light fixtures on either side of the bed. The USB connections were a nice improvement to hook up your phones, tablets, watches etc. They also had one or two US standard plugs and a European plug. You could hook up all your devices. The room had a hair dryer but the cord was very short and hard to use. The room had robes, slippers, and the standard toiletries. Our room had a tub with a shower in it. We learned later that when the ship was upgraded one side of our floor had walk in showers and no tub and the other side had a tub and shower in it. We also had a butler, Elro. He was like a genie who couldn't do enough for us. Your request was his command. He helped make our restaurant reservations at Prime C and Aqualina. He brought us coffee each morning and made sure we had fresh fruit and ice cubes every day in our room. In the afternoon around 3pm if you were in our room he brought around trays of savories and sweets. If you wanted a cocktail party in your room he would set it up. The room also had an umbrella. The bags didn't make it to the room until around 3pm. We unpacked and put our suitcases under the bed. All set for the next adventure. room was in the middle of the ship. Read entire member review >>
Recently remodeled with new fixtures including a very nice shower replacing the previous tub. The bathroom was large, in fact, had an echo when flushing the toilet. Room was comfortable with enough storage space and a very nice balcony. We were midship which was a benefit on the 8th day of the cruise that was very rough, forward and aft cabins were not comfortable on that day. Room could have been cooler, even with the temperature as far down as possible, it never seemed to get that cool, but it was adequate. Read entire member review >>
Gorgeous! Bed, pillows and linen super comfortable. Bright and cheery. White and cream colors. Loved the spacious balcony and inside sitting area. Much larger than the bigger new ships. I think the room may have been a handicap room because of the bathroom/shower accessories. A definite plus. Choose if you can. The room was right by the stairways and we never heard a thing. Amazing engineering. Read entire member review >>
Excellent location. Very rarely did we notice the noise from Windows above. The Aft part of the ship does have more noise due to the ship's 4 enormous generators, but it was not an issue. Service was excellent. Bathroom is roomy and veranda is nice. Read entire member review >>
worst part was we had children in the cabin next to us and for two nights they were extremely loud and didn't quiet down until after midnight. On the second night we called guest relations and complained. I guess rather than going up to the cabin and asking them to quiet down they must have called them. The children seemed to get louder and the adult in the cabin was yelling. Finally at 12:30pm- 30 mins after we complained - they quieted down. Read entire member review >>
8061 - Our suite was about the size of your normal mid quality superior veranda (300 ft) but so much better appointed with lots of storage. Very comfortable room. Butler service was superior. Read entire member review >>
The suite was nice, but not up to the suite we had two years earlier on Silversea. My biggest complaint is that the power outlets (both US and European voltages were UNDER the desk.
I also thought the balcony was too narrow to be usable.
On the other hand, the bed was nice and the suite service was excellent.
Our kids were in two cabins just forward of us. They were only a bit smaller, and didn't have the butler service. If you don't use the butler, the balcony cabins are an excellent value. Read entire member review >>
8039 is midship on Journey and probably the smallest and least well equipped suite we have booked. The balcony was long but not deep and only just adequately furnished. Bathroom was quite good except the cold water was always warm. Excellent cabin service. No noise despite being under the pool deck. Very comfortable bed. Plenty of storage space. Quiet and efficient aircon. Read entire member review >>
Ample storage space, under bed and closets.
Cabin below deck 9(pool deck) very noisy from furniture moves and crew cleanup. On disembarkation day cleaning began at 0530, not pleasant! No room divider from sitting area, curtain would have been nice. Read entire member review >>
8065 is nice as it is close to the elevator. Suggest a work over on electrical outlets however. Absolutely impossible when you have a CPAP. I had to get on my knees to get to an electrical outlet across the room and hidden in the bottom drawer and then use a 6 foot extension cord. We did not find any outlets that were on the walls in the "suite". Otherwise wonderful and as long as I can get off of my knees and up again, I guess I can live with it.
Oh yes there was plenty of closet space as well as drawers in the suite and the bathroom was sufficient although personally I detest shower curtains as I get wrapped up in them!! Read entire member review >>
