Aft is the only way to sail! The room itself is pretty basic, we had the normal bathroom, three closets which included shelving and a safe, and there are four drawers built into the desk/vanity. Whoever said to bring magnetic hooks was mistaken. We brought two very sturdy (holds 25 lbs) hook and they basically slid right down the wall. We did buy the hanging toiletry bags and used the towel holders to hang them on. That worked very well.
There were two bathrobes for our use which allowed us to stay warm in the cabin. The temperature was ideal for sleeping so we left it alone.
There are no ironing boards or hairdryers, FYI The are two outlets, one at the vanity and one above the sink in the bathroom. I brought an extension cord but never needed it.
There is ample room under the bed for your suitcases. My husband and I each brought large pieces of luggage and they fit without any concerns.
Two deck chairs were on the balcony although we wish they were chaises instead. It would have been divine to nap out there. We set my IPad on the small table provided and read or looked at stars while listening to music and the soothing sound of the churning ocean. Our balcony was never hot nor cold due to being sheltered on three sides and the overhang kept us from ever being in the sun which was quite alright with us.
We would have like a couch or table and chairs inside the cabin but we honestly did not spend much time inside except to sleep or shower.
The room stewards were great, especially on my birthday when they greeted me (twice) and wrote "Happy Birthday", etc on the vanity mirror. The towel animals were cute but unnecessary.
We opted for room service continental breakfast twice and they arrived 15 minutes early each time. Good thing for the robes :)
I can never go back to a normal stateroom again, All aft from now on, unless we upgrade to a suite. We had plenty of room inside and out. Read Less
