This was the last available accessible cabin available for the cruise. According to previous reviews it's the only accessible cabin without a sofa (although it does have an extra wide chair). First the bad - The beds are designed to be either a double or split into singles which makes them rather narrow. Also when the beds are split there is not enough room to get a wheelchair out onto the balcony which rather ruins the idea of having a balcony cabin in the 1st place! Unfortunately no ramps were provided to get over the balcony door frame. The other disadvantage to this cabin is that the balcony is literally 2 feet away from (and in full view of) the glass midship elevator so there is absolutely no privacy whatsoever on the balcony. On the other hand, however, you could have endless fun waving at your fellow cruisers as they glide past... The TV, while a good size, had terrible reception for 90% of the cruise and the films which were advertised as free then asked which account to charge when selected. There was a kettle supplied with tea bags but no coffee or milk which I thought a little strange (athough you can order room serivce for morning coffee to save the scrum in the OV cafe). The mini-bar fridge was just big enough to store our bottled water (although the temperature inside the fridge usually seemed to be identical to the cabin temperature). While many new switches and sockets were added during the refit it seems that they neglected to take the old ones away as there were several mysterious dials and switches that seemed to have no function whatsoever!
However, the many good points were - The post-refit fit and finish of the cabin was excellent with plenty of storage, plug sockets, USB charge points and very comfortable (if narrow) beds. The wet room was very spacious, immaculately clean and supplied with excellent toiletries. The sound insulation was also superb - I never heard a noise from above, below, next door or outside the cabin during the whole two weeks.
Our cabin steward seemed to be on 24 hour duty and was always very busy and unfailingly cheerful and helpful - a credit to Celebrity. Read Less
