We had the Vista suite with a connecting cabin (4228&4230). The wrap around deck at the back of the ship was just incredible. What a way to see Sydney Harbor off! Internally there was plenty of room though I think it is time for a refurb. Keep in mind everything was spotlessly clean. I thought the bath/shower was a little small. Overall we miss this cabin and the incredible views each day Read Less

We booked this cruise on a 'guaranteed balcony' room and were given this cabin. We have been in a similarly placed cabin on Explorer of the Seas earlier this year but this did not suffer the same noise and vibration issues which we encountered this time on Spirit, only when the ship was going at full speed. The room itself is the same as other balcony rooms we have had on this ship, with enough space for an extra bed which our teenage son slept on. Plenty of storage space and a slightly bigger balcony with a great view of the wake of the ship. This also got plenty of sun which was nice. The vibration thing was only an issue on the last night when we had to hurry back to Sydney to dock in the early hours of the morning for a medical emergency on board. We were at full steam ahead and the noise and vibration made it hard to sleep initially, until we got into Sydney Harbour around 1am. The room is directly opposite the laundry which is great...and there is no noise from the laundry or from anywhere else. A great room...but not when sailing at full speed! Read Less

8268 had a great wrap around balcony that spans about 6x a normal balcony. We had bug issues a couple of afternoons which prevented us going out there, but aside from that, this was the best feature of the room. The bathroom is large enough for two, the walk in robe is a good size, and the dressing room was a great extra touch. Read Less

Probably the most disappointing part of the cruise. The cabin was old and outdated. We had cabin 6264 which was the cabin that faced to the back of the boat. The cabin was so loud from the engine and shakes so badly, it was nearly impossible to sleep. The bathroom door rattled all day and night. We had to put a face washer between the door and the lock to stop it rattling. If you have any sort of sea sickness, do not book this cabin. It probably shakes and rocks the most out of any area on the ship. Read Less

We had a balcony but truly other than taking photo's we really didn't sit out very much. It was too windy to sit and enjoy the view. Very clean and spacious enough for our family of 5. Shower was a bit squished, but hot and quite satisfactory. kept very clean. TV in the room was a bit average and not much on. There is literally no Internet however that was fine, and i felt relaxed without all that keeping me occupied. I just brought a good book and had a lovely time. Read Less

The aft balcony was protected from the wind and gets lots of extra sun, which was excellent. The trade off is definitely extra noise and vibrations from the engine inside the cabin, and while I enjoy looking at the wake out the back of the boat, I now know I prefer looking out at the peaceful water. My wife has decided she prefers aft cabins. I'm not so sure. Indie the room was fine. There was only just enough cupboard space for three. The picture in the room was awful, and we weren't impressed by our cabin steward. The laundry is directly opposite the room. We found this a plus as we could use it, and you couldn't hear any noise from it. But we did have people knocking on our door looking for the laundry. Read Less
