Forward cabin on C deck with large balcony which because of the weather I did not use.
I think I would prefer a higher deck with a smaller balcony which was not overlooked.
Everything was in good order and well maintained.. Loved the wardrobe and the tea kettle. Did not miss having a couch. Two British power outlets and one US conveniently located on the desk or dressing table. Read entire member review >>
We were allotted a disabled cabin (neither of us is disabled but we didn't mind as the cabin was bigger) Very dated, wardrobe doors didn't shut properly. Tv remote sensor taped to the unit! Everything pretty worn out and tired. Didn't like the way you look down onto three rows of balconies below you, I thought the idea of paying for a balcony was to get some privacy. Not on this ship!

Spotless. Steward very obliging. Balcony was huge. We had some shade and shelter and some full sun. It was great.
TV's need updating to flat screen and general updating of decor.
Beds a little firm for my taste but tastes vary.
Great to have tea and coffee making facilities in the cabin.
Would rather have a shower screen than a curtain. Read entire member review >>
Category was actually GC, but not listed as an option. We specifically booked R748 which is an aft facing cabin, very top left looking at the back of the ship. It is supposedly slightly smaller that side balcony cabins of the same category but we had plenty of room for the two of us and the design of bathroom and width ways open fronted wardrobe separated from the main bedroom area was very good and I see is the same on the new Britannia.The bathroom is on the small side with only a shower with curtain but it has a bowed front so you dont end up being attacked by the curtain!We booked the cabin specifically for its position and have had aft cabins before, but to be honest tended to not have the great views that we previously found. This might have been as previous aft cabin cruises tended to include busier ports so more to see, whereas the Caribbean tends to be smaller berths with the rear of the ship looking out to sea, but we were not unhappy at all and the design of the balcony gives you a slight side view as well as rearwards so a good field of vision. It is also stated as being overlooked but this is not an issue at all as its very slight.One thing I did find was that on many mornings, always at 6am so clearly on a timer, we would hear water (or some liquid!) being pumped fast through pipework. It was loud enough to wake me on quite a few mornings and lasted for about 10 minutes, but I never knew what it was and I can't say it caused any great issue but worth others being aware of.The position of the cabin means no passing people and a very easy and quick access to the rear pool area and buffet.

We have cruised previously with P&O on board Ventura last January and again with Azura, all was as expected. The Balcony Cabin room we had was identical in layout and was kept clean and tidy by Emily our Steward. Plenty of space and storage space, and beds although not mega comfy do provide enough support for a good nights sleep. The Cabin itself was a little tired and could of done with some TLC, but as we weren't planning on spending our entire holiday in it we weren't that concerned. The Balcony is the biggest type on board and as such is a welcome place to sunbathe if you do not feel like fighting to get one of the numerous but towel covered (reserved from 6am!!!) sunbeds. The fridge isn't classed as a fridge and so does little to chill your drinks but is a welcome addition to the room. If we were to book again, this type of Cabin would be our choice.

Good cabin. Grubby decor and dirty balcony doors and glass. Cabin attendant friendly and helpful. Noisy each night whilst at sea, due to ceiling creaking. Had to buy earplugs to get any sleep. Read entire member review >>
Good position for lifts. Reasonably sized balcony cabin. Balcony overshadowed by protruding deck, meaning that there was rarely any sun on our deck. The decks below have longer balconies, so our view is of others sunning below - and if they are smokers, it wafts up to your balcony. Read entire member review >>
C612 - Lovely Balcony - C level does get you a bigger balcony than most, approx 9 foot by 9 foot - overlooked yes, but not the first 4 foot if this is such an issue to you so you can still hide under the above balcony. approx third the way along from aft and between the aft and midships lifts which keeps through traffic noise down. The room itself was plenty big enough for two - plenty of hanging space for all our clothes probably 6 foot. Plenty of storage space for baggage under beds. two small side cabinets and another full height one by clothes rail including safe. Plenty of mirrors and dressing table. Decent size fridge for smuggled on drink! Bathroom tight with a shower, toilet and single smallish sink but it is perfectly adequate - if you want a bigger bathroom pay for a larger cabin I suppose!

Cabin was normal size but balcony was adjoined by chain smokers so use was limited . It was kept clean enough by the steward but pillows smelled well used. Lot of noise at night with inconsiderate people talking very loud and drunks fighting in the corridor. (we don't go to bed early) TV can be heard through the walls. Read entire member review >>
R619 JC Balcony Stateroom - Riviera deck
Starboard Side, Great balcony, Close to Terrace Pool and Lifts
Sits below AQUA deck which unfortunately has a fake wooden deck. All you hear are chairs being dragged back and forth at all times of the day and during the night. Very frustrating more so when you are trying to sleep.
Good Storage. Read entire member review >>
C752. Good sized cabin and a fairly large balcony at the rear of the ship. Balcony is not overlooked. Wardrobe area is open plan with plenty of hangers and also plenty of other storage and drawer space. Read entire member review >>
Balcony cabin- not worth the extra money as it was too cold/wet to sit on it for seven days and too noisy for another two but there was no other real sitting space so we had to perch on the bed to do emails etc.
Plenty of hanging space for clothes and the cases fitted neatly under the bed. Read entire member review >>
R330, deck 14.
Small bathroom. Shaded balcony-no good for sunbathing. Below open deck & very noisy during the day, we were woken up every morning before 7am by crew moving tables & chairs.
Would not recommend deck 14 to anyone. Read entire member review >>
Cabin R614 Riviera Deck Port side.
If you don't smoke and your neighbours do, don't leave your balcony door open at night, if the neightbours sit out late at night, the smoke will blow into your cabin. There is a problem with the floor between the two beds. if you step near to the drawer, it feels as though the floor is going down and it makes a noise. When you step back the floor springs back into position. This was reported. Beds are comfortable; not too far to walk to the rear of the corridor to reach lifts and steps to buffet one flight above. Also near to the terrace bar.
The wardrobe area is open and a closed unit nearby has shelves. There's tea, coffee, milk, sugar and sweeteners and also biscuits.A hairdrier is in a cupboard.
Lights only come on if a keycard is placed in slot near cabin door!! Read entire member review >>
Small cabin but we have stayed in smaller. Have to walk through the wardrobe to get to the shower room. Balcony small and if you are non smoker is probably unusable as we had smokers both sides of us. Read entire member review >>
Azura B deck cabin B308 a good size, balcony and balcony furniture good. The balcony has a glass front and you overlook passenger's on their balconies on C & D deck. B deck cabin balconies are not over looked. The wardrobe is a walk in one and there is plenty of room to hang things.The bathroom is compact but everything you need. This cabin is located opposite a service door the two nights of disembarkation was very noisy with stewards moving luggage. Ear plugs required, anyother time it was quiet.
