We were in cabin 1246, which had an extra-large balcony. The cabin was great, but I did not anticipate the heat in late March. The balcony was too hot to use for most of the cruise. I think an aft balcony would be better for an Alaska cruise, with chilly weather, since you don’t have much wind at all there. We would have appreciated more wind and more shade as well. There were a couple of issues that were irritants. First, our bed was curved at the corners (first time we have had this kind of bed) and at 6’1” I could not stretch out my right leg out completely. Therefore, I had to sleep at an angle or undo the covers that were tucked under the bed. Also, from time to time we seemed to have only lukewarm water for our shower. This was particularly true if we wanted to shower in the late afternoon after a hot day of touring. Others complained about the same problem. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of closet and storage space, smaller balcony compared to other SV .
Location of outlet under the mirror above the desk did not work for a hair dryer.
Beds were very comfortable. Read entire member review >>
We were positively surprised on the good size of the cabin and bathroom. Although we haven't cruised before we were expecting a lot smaller sizes. The bed also was quite big.
The sofa wasn't big enough to fit 2 people on though and the area by the sofa also had a side table and the desk/mirror area which seems quite squashed in - good job we had a balcony really Read entire member review >>
Little storage with exception of closet. Bathroom size was a joke - I've seen individual non-handicapped toilet stalls with more room. Pretty narrow but OK. Balcony was fabulous. Can hear the Sunset Bar below but was not intrusive - great when the entertainment was playing as you could sit on your balcony with your drinks and enjoy in peace. Good Privacy.
