The cabin was small and the L-shaped layout of the beds made the best use of the space available, although the unit housing some drawers and the console for lights, announcements etc went behind one of the beds, just giving an extra shelf (which came in handy for my husband’s birthday cards to be displayed). The console itself had a button to turn off ship announcements, with a handy red light to let you know that one was being made. Our cases were on the very large side, so didn’t fit under the beds, especially as there was a wooden plinth in the middle. One case went in the wardrobe, the other between the chair and the bed. My husband has a habit of bringing extra coat hangers, not always necessary, but it’s not particularly a battle I care to fight. Thirty years together has taught me to agree to disagree, and if packing too many coat hangers is the worst thing, then we’re not doing badly! An extra couple of hangers might not have gone amiss, but he’d managed to pack over 30, so we had far too many! I’m sure they’d have brought us some extra, had we asked… The layout of the cabin meant one bed didn’t have a bedside lamp or table, which was a little bit disappointing – I suppose we could have asked for the bed to be made the other way round, so the drawer unit could be used. Being two men of a certain age, neither of us have much hair, so having not one but two hairdryers in the cabin made us laugh as did the fact that our Christmas crackers both contained combs! Daytime activities (especially after 5) are extremely low key (or non-existent), so we enjoyed the interactive TV’s on-demand film and TV programme options which we were very pleased to find came at no extra charge. The cabin was towards the back (I’m sure there’s a technical term for the blunt end), so when the ship was coming into port, the engine noise was fairly loud – and when moving in high winds, it did tend to creak, so earplugs are very much recommended. Having said this, for most of the trip, it wasn’t a problem. One cabin we would advise avoiding is 5143 – there was a really loud vibration noise outside, not sure if it was audible inside that cabin, though, but it would surprise me if not. We were delighted with the kettle in the cabin. Perhaps a little saucer for used teabags wouldn’t go amiss, but we used one of the glasses to put teabags in. We brought our own redbush teabags, but they were available in the tea station, along with a large selection of other teas and infusions. Our cabin stewardess came from Thailand and was very good and thorough. We didn’t get any towel animals, but perhaps, like the baked Alaska parade, also missing, that’s another thing of the past. We had a couple of very minor issues with the cabin (both of our own making). They were dealt with very speedily, with a short note afterwards to say they’d fixed the problem, but reminding us not to hesitate to get in touch if the problem hadn’t been rectified to our satisfaction, or if there was anything else they could do. A very nice touch, we thought. Read Less

Cabin inside cabin 4083 on deck 4 The cabin was spotless and bigger than we had expected, There where two double wardrobes but one there was not much room in due to chest of drawers inside wardrobes and the safe and shelves on the other side where the kettle and things where stored. there where only 4 small drawers in chest and then two of tiniest of drawers I've seen one on each of the two bedside cabinets. This was of course more than adequate for our needs as we where only there a week but I would not liked to have been doing a world cruise on her as there would not have been enough room for all the clothes for a longer cruise. The bathroom was as usual small but perfectly functional and well maintained. There where full length mirrors and a mirror above the dressing table/desk. Loads of lamps and lights in the room. Chocolate on the pillows every night but no towel animals like you get on some ships no big deal but I like those. The cabin well maintained and the only thing wrong with it was the hairdryer which was not only in bathroom not good when two people are trying to get ready for dinner at same time that was only minor in comparison to how bad the hair dryer actually was I gave up after an hour of trying to dry my hair and my hair was still only half dried. Otherwise the cabin met our needs well and was well looked after by our cabin stewardess who was wonderful. Read Less
