Cabin 10017
Jan 2017
This is our second time in this category on this class of ship. The layout and functionality is perfect for any cruise length. The walk in closet is one of the best we have utilized, second only to the Silver Spirit Silver Suite closet. As with most forward staterooms, the PH3 location results in excessive salt on the balcony from sea spray. If this is an issue then perhaps moving further mid-ship on deck 10 into a PH2 might be more suitable. The TV is attached in the bedroom section of the suite and is not on a retractable arm so when seated on the sofa in the living room the television is not angled correctly for optimum viewing. The curtain dividers are decorative only and do not close allowing complete separation of living/sleeping quarters.

Cabin 10029
Jan 2017
We chose a Penthouse 2 (PH2) on the 10th floor. We didn’t choose the 11th floor, as that was below the pool deck, and there is a large overhang. The balcony was fine, but I was surprised we used it less than I thought we would. There was loads of space for all your clothes. We did dine in our suite and the table was more than adequate. The bathroom was more than adequate for our needs. We met a couple on the cruise with a Balcony cabin. We did go through their room and our suite. We could be fine in a balcony, but we appreciated the space in the PH.

Cabin 11078
Dec 2016
We loved our Penthouse suite! The location was good- at first I worried that it seemed a little far back, but after getting onto the ship, realized that this is a small distance compared to the big Celebrity ships we are used to. In the end, it was nice to be able to walk up one flight of stairs to the Terrace Restaurant. Our room was nice and big- with a walk in closet, a lovely sitting area with a large balcony, and lots of storage in the room and closet. It was great to have lots of hangers and space for our clothes. The linens were luxurious, and our room attendant brought my husband a non down pillow when he was getting stuffed up with allergies. The bed was big and comfortable, though had a centre ridge from being two twins put together. Our bathroom was lovely- my husband is 5'11" and had no issue with the rain shower head that very tall people complain of. It was nice to have a full tub, and the Bvlgari toiletries were really nice. It was also nice to be able to access the Executive lounge for coffee drinks, and snacks, tv, and news papers. My only complaint is that there is no great place for lighting to apply makeup. The blowdryer is ok but you can't dry your hair in the bathroom- no plug. The outlets in the room are half American and half European, so difficult to charge multiple devices without adaptors. The outlet at the bedside table is European, so I was happy to have brought an adaptor.

Oceania, not the same? By: Cruiser Penny
Comfortable, well appointed. My only complaint (and I've told Oceania numerous times) is that the shampoo and hair conditioner that they supply are of very low quality. Definatly had to buy or bring my own. Penthouse rooms are quite roomy for two. We really like the beds and bed linens and pillows.

Cabin 9145
Jul 2016
Our suite was double the size of the Veranda rooms, and so it was very roomy. On our deck, (#9) were only two Penthouse Suites next to a giant Owner's Suite located fully aft. When the ship pulled out of the dock, we could feel the reverse props and the ship shook like an earthquake most pronounced in the aft section; but it was usually momentarily and would not prevent us from booking an aft cabin in the future. More importantly, we were sandwiched between stateroom decks and so it was very quiet. (We had intentionally planned on that.) Ironically, we could not use the Concierge Lounge on our deck but had to go up two decks for the Executive Lounge.

View from cabin balcony is obstructed by a large searchlight. It wasn't a big deal to us, and the searchlight was not turned on during the cruise.

It has gone downhill By: Mgolub73
The penthouse suite is nice and more spacious. Whether it is worth the extra money is another question

Cabin 10014
Oct 2014
PH3 suite. Good design and tasteful calm decor, with superbly comfortable bedding. More storage than we could fill and we do not travel light. Silent by day and night and free of any engine noise and vibration.Very efficient air conditioning. Small but totally private balcony with two comfortable chairs. The curtains provide a total blackout at night.A lap-top computer is provided but internet access is not included. Binoculars would have been appreciated. A quite large flat-screen TV provided access to a good range of international channels as well as all the usual shipboard ones.Bathroom were supplied with Bulgari amenities, a walk in shower as well as a tub which also had a shower. Lots of bathroom storage so there was never any clutter. Butler service was useful and full breakfast daily en-suite was always delivered within ten minutes of order time and set out on the table with a table cloth.

Oceania - Mixed Reviews By: Worldtraveler2013
Beautiful room as described. We loved all the storage space and there is plenty. There was no noise from above or below and the room was maintained perfectly. We were on the 10th floor so there is no obstruction to the view.

Cabin 10011
Jan 2013
Stateroom 10011 is Penthouse 3 category. The room had a walk-in closet and lots of drawers everywhere. The bed was wonderful, with full room lighting controls from either side of the bed. The butler service was very good as was the twice daily room cleaning. The room also had lots of hooks to hang clothes.

Cabin 7130
Jun 2012
Oceania Marina. Cabin 7130, a PH3 at the stern is slightly narrower than other PH cabins which proved problematical only when my wife was busy at the dressing table and I wanted to get past. It has a fantastic L shaped balcony that is possibly the largest on the ship. However the room is quite noisy when docking (putting a positive spin on it you could say it provides a free early morning wake-up service) and was dreadful when we were tendering in heavy weather and the ship had to constantly use its engines to maintain station. Very comfortable bed; good lighting; small walk-in wardrobe. Nice granite and marble bathroom with a full size tub; shame about the plastic walled shower cubicle.

Cabin 10020
Jan 2012
Port side deck 10 cabin 10020. Wow. A real walk in closet and dressing table for the admiral. Tasteful decor and crisp linens. Butler service is the best we've experienced. The veranda is adequate. I would not take a cabin aft of the smoke stacks until they clear up their easy to fix problem with soot falling on the decks and verandas.

Cabin 10014
Nov 2011
Our room was fine. No outside hall noise, some sounds could be heard from an adjacent cabin but was so muted I couldn't distinguish what it was. Sounded like a TV but so soft it really wasn't an issue. Veranda was fine, everything was fine.

Cabin 10022
Aug 2011
The cabin was wonderful. The beds were fantastic. The bathroom was beautiful, although the shower is a bit tight for a big person. The veranda was wonderful, with comfortable padded chairs and teak floors. The TV was good, but would have preferred it in the sitting area rather than bed area. Room even had a lap top computer. The walk in closet was excellent, as was the safe. The room location on the ship made everything convenient and the location was quiet. No problems at all with the PH3 cabin.

Cabin 10002
May 2011
Penthouse Cabin 10002/Marina: Avoid! Too close to the front of the ship, bad in rough seas. A huge white light fixture hangs over part of the verandah obstructing the views. This is a PH3 level cabin, and for the same money you can get one much closer to the middle of the ship. The interior of the cabin was very nice, well-worth paying more for. Very spacious,huge closet, really well-designed bathroom.
