Toward the back of ship on port side. For port, we didn't have the preferred docking view very often. No noise from above. Good space and balcony. Shower pressure and temperature very good. Storage (general and bathroom) very good. felt the ship roll (but surely everyone else did too) Read entire member review >>
We got upgraded to a suite and were very impressed. The room was comfortably large and the bathroom huge compared to what we've had on previous cruises (including the mini-suite on Princess). The ship had recently gone through an interior redo and it showed. The service was great and, with the suite, came with an English Butler. The service was even better than the cabin.

We should explain the "terrible" rating we gave to cabins 6057 & 6059.
This review is intended to prevent others being lured into the same trap as we (and others before us) were lured into.
We booked two "Club Continent" Suites on a Guarantee W status. When we checked in, we found that we had been allocated cabins 6057 and 6059. On enquiry, it transpired that cabins 6057 and 6059 have recently been re-fitted and have been upgraded by Azamara from accessible Veranda cabins to accessible Club Continent Suites (although, until the last week or so, the Azamara website did not reflect this change). Apart from cabins 6057 and 6059, all the Club Continent Suites are on Deck 8.
Cabins 6057 and 6059 do not look like Club Continent Suites as shown on the website. They are adapted accessible suites. They are marginally smaller and whilst the room decor is the same as Club Continent Suites, they have functional, heavily adapted bathrooms and raised desk/dressing table heights to suit wheelchair users, but nobody else. So, unless you require an adapted suite, or you are otherwise happy with an adapted suite, we would recommend against booking cabins 6057 or 6059 or booking a Club Continent GTY W class suite on Azamara.
Whilst we were not concerned about being on Deck 6, we were seriously disappointed with the cabin allocation, as we did not have the attractive bathroom we bargained for, or a functioning desk/dressing table.
We were more particularly disappointed with the attitude of the Azamara Head office in Miami, who told us that, contrary to their own terms and conditions, a GTY booking does NOT secure you a minimum type of cabin. They also chose to ignore our suggestion that the disabled people on board the ship might have welcomed a free upgrade to suites adapted to their needs. Don't expect any customer service once they have your money. Read entire member review >>
Perfect location. Very roomy! I never heard noise from any other cabin nor above. I loved that the bathroom had shelves over the toilet and I could lay all my toiletries out instead of keeping everything bagged. There was plenty of storage for clothes. The bed was comfortable and the balcony was so nice to sit when sailing into a port. Read entire member review >>
Lots of room for storage. A dining-table height table would be very welcome. Décor a bit dated, but unimportant. Near the back of the ship so rode out the short period of rough seas very well. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8066 - Club suite: Very large with extra size balcony, comfortable pillows and bed; bathroom has a bathtub unlike the verandah cabins which have only a shower stall. "Rose" amenities which are quite controversial but we liked them a lot - didn't really notice any strong floral scent.
Lots of closet and drawer space; individual mini-bar with complimentary sodas & a section of other articles to be paid for. Complimentary large bottles of water; canapes each day; attentive, friendly room steward and butler.
In this suite you are offered 4 complimentary bottles (approx 185ml) of liquor - gin, vodka, whiskey & rum - all well known brands. Read entire member review >>
