Floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors, sitting area with sofa, 32 inch LCD TV, wireless connection, two beds convertible to queen size, vanity, bath with shower stall and washbasin. Additionally, suite veranda features lounge seating. Some cabins may have a trundle bed.
I like the cabin because of it's location. However, I do not think the storage area is practical It is above the bed. Therefore, most people have to get up onto the bed to get their stuff out. What would have been a good storage space would be under the bench of the couch. Our veranda was bigger then most of the veranda's on the ship, but compared to other AFT veranda's I have gotten on other ships, it was nothing special. Our housekeeper, Babylon, was out of this world. I wish she could be my housekeeper on every cruise I go on. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was at the rear of the ship. We liked it because we don't mind walking. Not recommended if if you have difficulty walking. The cabin has plenty of storage space. Good size washroom, comfortable bed. Extremely quiet. The staff, were excellent. Hint. Take extra hangers. Read entire member review >>
Our stateroom was incredible! The Sunset Veranda stateroom is the absolute best type of stateroom on the ship! Sitting on our balcony and watching the sunrise/sunset is the most peaceful place to be on the entire ship!!! Read entire member review >>
Love being at the aft end of the ship with uninterrupted views of sunrise and sunset and port entry and departure. Our stateroom staff Sharon and Sheldon were more than excellent and well worthy of reward above and beyond the paid gratuities. Read entire member review >>
Totally enjoyed our cabin and our housekeeper Margarite, who was so very nice and accommodating to us! The view we had every night was amazing.... watching the stars from our balcony ... no words can describe the multitude of stars and shooting stars we saw! The room was much roomier that I expected with loads of storage space.... and I didn't need my electrical converters.... but glad I brought an extension cord. The bathroom was, again, roomier and plenty of storage space.... even in the shower!!! (plenty of pressure and hot water too)Wifi was available... you have to pay for it.... a suggestion - if you want to purchase Wifi, purchase 4 hours or more! It seems expensive but in long run you'll save. I made mistake of buying a little at a time and cost me so much more for less time. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was modern, attractive, clean...but on the small side. Amenities were nothing special. Storage space (eg. drawers) was limited and sparse. Sunset Veranda cabins are so far from elevators and stairs that we didn't have to walk on the exercise track. Read entire member review >>
Our room was adequate. The bathroom is the first thing you come across when walking in the door. The shower was adequate and they provide you with shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and soap. The next thing is the closet. There could have been more hangers but we managed. The sofa is next with a little desk/makeup station, mini bar and 5 drawers for storage across from it. The blowdryers aren't very strong. The bed was by the window, it was comfortable. They always call them queen beds but I feel they are bigger than queen beds. My husband and I have no problems with space on their beds and we usually sleep on a king. The balcony on this room is a little larger than most. The balcony isn't covered but the way they are staggered on the back of the ship lends itself to privacy. The only way I could see my neighbors to the side or above was to stand at the rail.

We were in 7317, a sunset veranda (aft balcony) stateroom. It was a hike from the nearest elevator, but worth it. There was no hint of soot, nor was there significant noise. The sound of the wake was soothing. We did get some intense sun in the afternoons, but you can get that on a regular balcony. The two adjustable chairs and table were a better quality than on other lines, and it was great to sit there and watch the wake. Very relaxing. The beds were fine. The bathroom was nice, with thoughtfully arranged storage. The storage in the room was adequate but not generous. Nice sized closet with plenty of hangers. We appreciated that there was a daybed in this class of stateroom, though it was not comfortable to sit and read. It would be nice if there was comfortable seating in the cabin.

No problems at all. No soot. Maybe, just be aware that there isn't a ton of privacy (cabins above can see down onto your veranda. Also, you can't look directly down at the water. The blue top of the Tuscan Grille protrudes out about six feet from the deck of your veranda. Still, a very nice cabin out of the wind with very little noise. Read entire member review >>
The stateroom had more storage room then we could use. The bathroom and shower were great. Loved ordering room service from the TV - and all the free movies.
We were on the back of the ship, and at times there was smoking above us -- and even a thrown butt onto our balcony. UNACCEPTABLE but I don't know what they can do about it. Read entire member review >>
Great oversize balcony. Liked the room, felt spacious. Bathroom was very nice, with good water pressure in the shower. Sound of the wake was particularly helpful in getting us to sleep and keeping us there. Wonderful white noise. Only quibble: A/V ports on the flat screen TV were disabled, preventing us from reviewing our videos, photos and watching movies from our iPod. Sliding door does not lock, so use the safe!

6312 ( and the cabins directly above it) have a wider veranda by about 3 feet than the other SV cabins. The depth is the same, just wider.
On the S Class ships, the SV cabins are a LONG way from the stairs and elevators and this should be considered by anyone who has difficulty in walking.
Cabin is quiet, we noticed no extraneous noise or any unpleasant odors. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8315 is a Sunset Veranda on Fantail. We love looking out at the ship's wake.The cabin is comfortable and quiet with plenty of storage space and an outstanding interactive television system. Could use more drawer space but overall we were very happy with this cabin.
Keep in mind that almost all veranda cabins are the same size. Seems to me it is not worth paying the extra $$ for an Aqua Class or Concierge Class cabin on Solstice or Equinox. Read entire member review >>
