Cabin was just a normal cabin. We paid a little extra to get an extended balcony, but I don't think it was worth it? Could have saved the cash and just spent in the fun shops... Read entire member review >>
We were above the aft lifeboats but had unobstructed views and were very well protected from prevailing winds.
Could be out on our balcony anytime of day or night and would choose the same position again as we experienced very little movement of the ship here also. Read entire member review >>
Balcony cabin level 7. Very comfortable and more spacious than expected. Lots of storage space in cabin and bathroom. Bed very comfortable and excellent pillows. Cabin was midships and even one day when the seas were rough the ship was extremely stable. Cabin exceeded my expectations. Read entire member review >>
Under the pool deck walkway, noise all day and night from above, too many unsupervised children running around above. Air-con need to be fixed - balcony doors hinged. Windows and mirrors were dirty with handprints entire week were in it. Read entire member review >>
We had interconnecting staterooms which worked really well for the kids
Our rooms were on deck 5 and was very convenient for kids Club 7 to 9 age group
Only negative was an annoying creek from the wall in bigger seas.
Take a brand new un-open powerboard with you as only one power point in the room. Read entire member review >>
Great cabin, close to the lifts that lead to the dining areas and the Serenity Deck. Midship location is great, you really notice the difference when seas are rough, midship is nowhere near as unstable as other areas. Read entire member review >>
Extended Balcony Cabin 8148. Lots of closet, drawer, and cabinet storage. Love the overhang our deck 8 balcony had which protected us from rain. Concerned about noise from LIDO deck but was NOT a problem. Read entire member review >>
7203 balcony was excellent bathroom decent sized for a cruise ship plenty of closet space, drawer space limited. drawers in couch were difficult to pull out. beds were very comfortable but if your over 6 foot 1 or so your feet will be hanging off the edge. tv channels varied in audio greatly making it annoying to try to find an actual tv station amongst all the cruise company sales pitches. expect annoy your partner several times if ya like to channel surf in bed. almost no outside noise heard inside the cabin, but on the balcony sound did seem to travel a bit to easily between neighboring cabins.

We had cabin 6222 - the bed was comfortable but it wasn't large enough to include my scooter as well and we found ourselves crawling around and over it too often. Nice balcony but we could have used another chair. None were available we were told. The PA left a lot to be desired. Good location. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 6220 on the Empress Deck (mid-ship but more aft). Balcony was great. We were the deck above the lifeboats on the indent (port side). This room was not too close or far from the elevators. We were on a corner to the balcony to our right was out farther than we were so that afforded privacy and a wind block.
The closets space was adequate for two people. The suitcases stored under the bed and out of the way. The bathroom was a decent size. Enough shelf space and counter space. I would have liked a shelf in the shower to hold our own shampoo/conditioner, face soap. The only shelf was for a bar of soap. But otherwise it wasn't bad. I thought towards the end of the cruise there was a sewer smell coming from the toilet, but with the lid down you didn't notice it. It certainly wasn't overpowering, just a slight odor.
