The Oceanview stateroom is approximately 162 to 212 square feet and features a picture window for memorable views. The Oceanview stateroom is richly appointed with fine amenities. Some also have pullman beds to accommodate 3rd and 4th passengers.
The cabin was more compact than ones I had booked before, but still had plenty storage space. I need the think foam topper on the mattress to prevent pain, but I understand that these mattresses are being replaced soon. The porter could have kept the room a bit cleaner, but her service was extraordinary. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was fine, we enjoyed the deck. Lots of space for hanging and putting suitcases but no couch in the cabin area. Bathroom was average. I would give it a 6 out of 10 Read entire member review >>
Roomy enough. Location was great, a few steps from the stairway and elevators.
Balcony was a little small, allowing only regular chairs rather than lounge chairs.
Bed was hard. Getting an additional foam pad helped. We were never completely comfortable, however.
Closet space was excellent - a walk in area that shielded the light from the head when someone entered at night. Trade off was virtually no drawer space for small clothing. Used the many shelves in the cupboard to store folded clothes. Worked well enough but would have preferred drawers. There are two deep drawers in the night stands and two more in the desk. Plenty of hangars and space for the luggage.
mini-fridge was never really cold, but Wilson the steward always made sure we had ice.
Lighting was sufficient.
Smallest shower of any ship we've been on. As someone else wrote, if you drop the soap, your shower's done because you can't pick it up. They make up for that by using a shower curtain, but that's not a very good solution as it sticks to you if you bend over or brush against it. Controls are logical and work well.
The ship is showing its age. This is evident in some wear on the metal work in the bathroom, other little touches, but overall they maintain the ship and cabins well. Read entire member review >>
I was actually surprised how much storage space was in my balcony port side stateroom. A bit dated and the shower was too tight. Steward was great. Not a bad place to live for 7 days. Had lots of hangers! Had an issue with the hairdryer, needed to be REPLACED, but it was not. I was afraid to use as it was noisy and I was afraid it would start a fire. My only issue with steward.

A339 on Aloha deck. The balcony is covered by an overhang, so anything said on neighboring balconies was amplified as it bounced off this low metal overhang. Sitting on balcony was not always pleasant due to the loud rock band on the Lido deck above us, especially on party nights. I will not book on the Aloha deck again. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was just down the hall from the kids club. Since there were not children on my sailing I don't know how this would be if there had been. May be a deterrent for some and a good choice for others depending on if you are sailing with your kids.
It is near the back of the ship, and on the 12Th floor. The main dining rooms are in the front of the ship, so you will walk quite a lot here.
Very close to the aft stairs, and one floor below the Lotus Spa, the Sanctuary, and the gym.
The Lotus Spa and the outside walk way are all that is above you.
Enclosed balcony, very nice. Read entire member review >>
We were in cabin B330. This was a balcony stateroom on the port side. The room was a typical rectangular room with the two beds pushed together to make a queen size bed. There was ample storage space which we didn't completely fill. The bathroom is very tiny and almost impossible to share unless someone is in the shower while someone else is at the sink.
The shower is truly tiny making it difficult to turn around much less shave your legs.
This room had the ability to sleep 4 people and there were 2 bunks recessed into the ceiling, which we never saw.
The room would be pretty cramped with 4 people's stuff but it certainly could be done.
The furnishings, bedding and floor were all well maintained and the only wear I saw was some of the linens had worn spots. Read entire member review >>
B343 was a very great location. We had 3 people in the room and we had plenty of room. We stored the empty suit cases under the beds so we had all the room we needed. Great balcony, and very quiet. Read entire member review >>
On our last cruise we were on the Island Princess in cabin A320. It was totally covered which was important since this was a cruise through the Panama Canal and it was nice to have the shade. This was a balcony cabin and was of average size. It had a typical bathroom (small) but had a large closet area for hanging clothes, which was great since this was a 10 day cruise. It was near the forward part of the ship and was only one floor from the buffet and pool decks. There were no cabins across from us so it was reasonably quiet except for some noise in the middle of the night which we think was the crew cleaning the pool deck. Read entire member review >>
Small bathroom with smaller shower. Overhand from Lido deck effected some views. Wall from room A310 block panorama. Though you could sit on the balcony when raining and not get wet. Maybe 30 feet from the elevators and stairs. Could walk up one flight to buffet and not have to wait on elevators Read entire member review >>
Cabin A408. Small bathroom. Shower curtains instead of door - water spills over on floor. Noisy, cabin is below runners on Deck 14. Window washing boom on deck 14 partially blocks forward view. Comfortable bedding. Read entire member review >>
