Worst cruise ever! By: bhappy1130
Our cabin was spacious and mostly clean. The bathroom needed some cleaning in the sink area but otherwise was generally good. The balcony was well equipped with a couple of chairs and a small table.

Nice size. Overall happy with the cabin. Lower rating because of the limited electrical outlets and no small refrig in the cabin......but then, they are not in most on this ship, so no fault of this particular cabin. Only 2 electrical outlets, 1 above bathroom mirror and one at desk. Balcony door is a man door, not a sliding glass door like on RCL ships. I like leaving the balcony door open at nice to fall asleep listening to the waves, but the strong door closer on this type of door requires some strategic thinking on your part. The cabin is in a nice location. Tends to be quiet, although I do sleep with ear plugs in as a habit so maybe I missed some noises? Took a few days to figure out there is a "short cut" from a out of the way stairway in the back hallway connecting the two sides of the ship that goes up to the Serenity Deck, and access from there to the Plaza Lounge, Lido Deck, etc. It's much faster than walking forward to the Atrium to get to any places on the rear of the ship.

Cabin E214

Balcony Cabin was OK... Layout seemed really tight. Barely enough room for the two of us to get ready for dinner at same time... We found ourselves playing human tetris to move about the cabin. Not a huge deal, since we spend very little time in cabin.

Appropriate Expectations By: Dreams2Memories
Comfortable beds. Nice amount of space. Balcony needs a little TLC (rusty, chipped paint). Black substance (ink? tar?) on the curtains.

Two adjoining balcony rooms, one with a king, the other with 2 twins. Older ship so the rooms were smaller than the larger new ships. The beds were very comfortable. The housekeeping service was wonderful. Very attentive and clean. We loved the balcony. We sat out there and watched the sunset, and at night we watched a pod of dolphins follow our ship catching flying fish.

Cabin E229

We stayed on the Empress deck 7, toward the aft. You could hear engine noises pretty well, but nothing that woke us up. There was some movement felt, but I am very sensitive to that and never got queasy. Great that Empress is same deck as main atrium/lobby. Room was mostly clean, bed was comfortable, shower was larger than expected, sink was smaller than expected. Lots of storage space. No sofa, only chair. Balcony divider can be opened to E225.

Small for a balcony, not enough towels so requested more (which came). Had A/C turned off (freezing). No amenities in bathroom except bodywash and soap. Small hardback chair (1) to watch tv.

Cabin U215

For a Balcony the room it is small and only has a small hard straight backed chair to set on or you have to set on the bed, a small sofa would be nice. Like the Fascination the rooms are small but I feel the balconies are large enough, we had 1 lounger, 2 chairs and a table and had room to walk around. I spend about 45% of my time on the balcony so for me it works.

I had a balcony stateroom M123 and it had a larger than expected balcony. Bed was comfortable, but could hear people running in hallways, or t.v. & people talking to loud in room next door.

first cruiseHOLY SMOKES!! By: boomcruiseboom
cabin was perfect location. the last balcony also connects to a wrap around to the rear, giving you a huge balcony if you can get your steward to open the access for you.
