Whether you're warming up for your spa appointment or winding down after your treatment, there's no better place to do it than on your Cloud 9 Spa Balcony. Two twin beds convert to a a king, and the private balcony has patio chairs and a table. This stateroom also includes a single sofa bed, sofa and coffee table, and a desk and seat.
The cabin was in a quiet location that is convenient to the Lido. The best part about the port side balcony cabins forward of the elevator on deck 12 is that there are no inside cabins across the hall from these cabins. The cabin was in good repair. The decor was soothing. We have cruised many times so we knew exactly what the storage would be and packed accordingly, including bringing additional hangars. Read entire member review >>
My only real complaint is the cabin. I booked a Cloud 9 Spa (8S) cabin and was very disappointed. The cabin is next to the fitness center. All day I could hear the weight equipment being used. 7AM until as late as 11:30PM my room would rattle. A few nights into the cruise the ship rented the Serenity deck out to a private party that raged until after 1AM. None of this is acceptable for a relaxing spa vacation. The Cloud 9 Spa package is really just unlimited use of the Thermal Suite, discounts on already overpriced spa services and a couple of free yoga classes that you'll never make it to if you sleep in, go ashore, or dine early. Save the money, book a balcony on deck 8 and get a few day passes to the Thermal Suite. Read entire member review >>
Clean, efficient, and neat, this quiet balcony cabin had a great, unobstructed port view. A/C and heating were perfect as was the water pressure and temperature in the shower. I wish the shower drain wasn't as slow, but overall, it was very nice. Read entire member review >>
Just ok, balcony very small. Every time you went out I found myself tripping over the chair.
This ship rocked a lot. Don't know if they forgot to add stabilizers or what but I don't remember this much movement on my 11 other cruises. I also sailed on 4 Navy ships for 20 years. Only the small ship I was on seemed to have this kind of movement. Didn't think the cabin steward was very attentive. We had to leave notes to leave bar soap and a few other things.

We usually stay on deck 7, but decided to try deck 11. We enjoyed the location and easy access to the activities. However, we will be going back to deck 7. The throbbing base of the music at night made sleeping impossible a few nights. The spa room for some reason seemed smaller than the other balcony cabins we have had. The green more subdued color was a nice change for the orange in our other cabins. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 12009. Balcony small but sufficient with two chairs (One reclining) and a small table. Bed was comfortable. TV was nice size flat panel. Room was a good size with 3 closets and modest drawer spaces. Bathroom was probably a little above avg. in size for a cruise ship. Shower was fine with amble room. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a spa balcony 8S thought not sure what was the difference as we have previously had a cove balcony of the same size presumably it was being on deck 12 not 2 as previous but very comfortable indeed Read entire member review >>
