We loved this cabin, although I admit my only previous experience has been with "deluxe balcony" rooms. It seemed HUGE by comparison. It has an extra-large balcony, easily twice the size of most of the regular balcony rooms. The only down side is the balconies stick out from all of the others (they are located above the lifeboats), so everyone above can see it. Not really that big of a deal- just something to be aware of if you like lounging around in your underwear (or less).
The bed was ridiculously comfortable, especially for a cruise ship bed. I would put it on-par with some of the better hotels out there. It is a huge improvement over the terrible foam beds I've encountered up to this point. For CPAP users who can struggle on cruises- there are two 110v outlets right next to the bed.
The bathroom is huge (compared to balcony rooms anyway). There is about twice as much room to shower thanks to the tub. We didn't use the tub itself, but it was nice having all that extra space for the shower. I wish it had a hand shower though! My only complaint specific to this cabin is the diverter valve is stuck, so you can't direct water to the tub spout or what appeared to be a foot wash faucet next to it. It was a minor annoyance and we didn't complain about it to the staff. The only time we wanted to use the spout was to rinse off water shoes and sandals.
I think the carpet was new. We noticed some fuzz on occasion. The decor and furniture show a bit of age but are still in great condition and functional. There is a lot of storage between the large closet, desk and nightstand drawers, and shelves in the center divider area. If you need them- there are plugs between the desk and bed, and plugs behind the flat-screen TVs that are fairly easy to get to.
We had a great time here! Read Less
