Cabin was bright, neutral decor, bathroom was good -- toilet water a little low, had to add a glass of water to the bowl each time - shower was one of the better ones I've had on cruise ships, rounded shower doors, no leaky curtain. Good closet space and room under the bed for cases. Really liked this cabin! Hair dryer provided, too, and electric for European and US appliances. Read entire member review >>
We loved this room! Lots of space. The best feature is the large flat area by the window that looks out of the front of the ship. We used our pillows and looked at the stars at night. that area could easily fit a full sized mattress. Read entire member review >>
Really fantastic room. Super quiet, very good size, at the very front of the ship. Where the window was, we could even climb into that area (if you are nimble and in pretty good shape), and we would just sit there and watch as we pulled into port, or we would view the sunset. Neat bonus! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was spotlessly clean and well kept. Towels were refreshed each day and the bed linen was crisp. I especially enjoyed the fact that our cabin attendant (Dragos) was very friendly and happy to help with any questions we had and was very informative about the ports of call we were visiting.

I was in an Ocean View cabin, H-7508, the window went all the way along the back wall and gave me a beautiful view of whatever port we were in. The cabin was clean and neat and large enough for me to put my suitcase out of the way, walk around, and stretch out on the couch or the bed. Standard small bathroom. I just loved the picture window and I feel it was an extremely large room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was located under the MDR. I personally never heard noise from above with some exceptions after 8:00 in the morning. Noises seemed to be maintenance related. Never once heard a noise from the hallway. Our cabin steward Simeon was a bright ray of sunshine. Plenty of space for my overpacking Girlfriend and myself. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very good, with the lone exception being the banging noises that we heard on a couple of nights. Our stateroom attendant was very pleasant, and immediately helped us take care of the cabin temperature issue that we had on the first night (it was way too hot even for my wife, and she is always cold). Otherwise, everything was top notch as we have come to expect Read entire member review >>
I would choose this room again. No point in paying extra money for a room that I'm not going to spend much time in. I felt this size was adequate. The service we received was great. The fact that the room was in the middle, away from the elevators and stairs made it a quiet location. There was only 1 time that I heard noise above us (which is about where guest relations was).

This room is close to the stairs which I preferred over the elevator unless I had to go to the top deck. The elevator was close as well, We had a lot of seniors on the ship and the elevators filled fast especially at meal times. The room was nice, the TV was dated and we had to call to have it serviced a few times. The bathroom was ok, but tiny. We had a sofa and coffee table which was nice when our friends came over to play cards. We placed our bags under our beds for more space. We had just enough closet space for all of our clothing and shoes. The ship was at a port most days so the time you spend in the room was for sleeping or napping, or changing clothes. I think the rooms could stand a little updating in terms of style and decor. You should bring a surge protector for charging of cell phones, tablets, cameras. There were not enough ports.

Our hallway was very quiet. Our cabin did have some sort of rattle noise that was a little bothersome at night but not too much. The cabin had a little refrigerator to keep snacks cold. The shower was a little interesting to get used to and a little small. We had an oceanview room. Read entire member review >>
7002 was a wonderful cabin with a very large window overlooking the bow, allowing us to observe the flag and departure/arrival activities, and providing more space to stow items or dry swimwear with ease. It was very quiet save for a bit of rehearsal by a sax performer, which was not unwelcome as s/he (?) never did it late in the evening. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was small but well organized with plenty of space for all of our things. The closet was quite large. The shower door was a big improvement over the curtain on the Radience. I was concerned because there was crew quarters across the hall, but there was never a noise problem. This was the first time we were located on the front of the ship but it was not at all rough. It was convenient to an elevator and we never had to wait long for one. It was a dead-end hallway so there was very little foot traffic and it was very quiet. Read entire member review >>
Tons of storage space everywhere you can imagine--large closet with plenty of hanging space plus shelves down the left side, 6 vanity drawers, a 3-shelf cabinet above the TV, room for toiletries behind both corner mirrors on the vanity, and also behind the one corner of the mirror in the bathroom, and 2 bedside stands as well. On top of that, there is plenty of room under the beds to store your suitcases! Felt our location on the ship was perfect--practically no noise other than the low hum of general "ship noise." Found the lighting to be quite nice, although we did wish there would have been a very dim nightlight setting in the bathroom. There are no receptacles in the bathroom, so nowhere to plug in a nightlight, and the hairdryer (which was provided) needs to be used out in the room at the vanity. Bar soap was provided, and there was a dispenser on the wall of the shower that was labeled "CONDITIONER SHAMPOO" but I used it for body wash and thought it was quite nice as such. Beds were comfortable, linens were cozy, view out of our window was beautiful as we were close to the water--we just overall loved this room! Read entire member review >>
If you are going with a stateroom with a window, I recommend a low floor as you have obtain a much better persepctive of the waves. This stateroom did have some noise late at night; not sure if it was coming from dining room above or something banging against outside of ship (or maybe my wife was just snoring really loud).
