Room was spotless and well maintained. Storage, however, is limited and awkward to access. For example, when the door to the drawers is open, you can't get to the hanging locker. The drawers in the desk unit are pretty useless because they are so small. The best place to use a hair dryer is the big mirror, but there is no electrical outlet there. We would gladly do without the tub to get more room and storage. We were surprised to see some staining on linens. Read entire member review >>
Cabin pleasant and good position mid ship but we did get a lot of ocean spray on our deck. Perhaps deck 8 would be better. Closet very close to the bed so only one person at a time can access it. Lots of drawers but some ridiculously small. Lost some items behind the drawer on the bedside table Never saw them again
Bed very comfortable and bedding wonderful
Bathtub very welcome and adequate toiletries provided. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was the cleanest we have stayed in regardless of cost. The ship in its entirety was quite clean. More than ample room for clothes for two for 14 days unless one does not know how to pack smartly.
This cabin is a real steal as it is not only very quiet, but it has a huge veranda, ~ 125 sq ft or more than 2x the size of the standard veranda on Marina or Riviera. You have two sitting chairs and a table PLUS two full size reclining chaise lounges, outfitted daily with a terry cloth cover over the cushions. Read entire member review >>
Was a handicapped room thus much larger than regulars. No tub but a large shower. Appeared to be 3-4 feet wider than regular B3 and both doors were extra width. Balcony was a normal size. No complaints at all. Heard no noise from adjoining rooms or casino bar under us. Bedding was phenomenal and nothing in the past to compare it to. Super! Didn't spend a whole lot of time in room but the time we did was great. Our own haven. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin had an oversized balcony because of its location on the ship. There was no extra cost for this room because of this added bonus. This allowed us to have to full lounge chairs, a small table, and two chairs all comfortably located for our use. The only perceived negative could be part of our balcony was visible from above. Not a big issue for us. The bed was amazingly comfortable. My wife did not have her regular shoulder soreness for the duration of the cruise. I guess we will be looking for a gel-filled mattress top now that we are at home. The room itself was large enough and quite comfortable with a sofa and chair, desk and larger screen TV. At times it was awkward for us to both be in the closet area at the same time so we had to take turns. We unplugged the closet light at night because the ship movement would open the door and turn the light on. The bathroom layout issue is explained above but we worked around it. Very nice decor though. Read entire member review >>
Very clean, spacious. Good access for wheelchair.
Sofa bed was very uncomfortable for our adult daughter.
Beds are a little too high for direct wheelchair to bed transfer.
Staff efficient. Read entire member review >>
Handicap cabin, excellent and very well thought out and done. Only issue is the balcony , I am not in a WC but I don't know how someone in a WC would get out there easily. The cabin is well positioned in the middle of the ship so if you need to go to the back (most restaurants are in the back) or the front (Horizon and amphitheatre) it is pretty well equi distant to both of them. The bathroom has plenty of solid grab bars and a nice seat in the shower. Read entire member review >>
Extended balcony, great bedding and linens, Pellegrino waqter, bath with separate tub and shower plus Bulgari toiletries. Good DVD and broadast movie selection. Cabin kept immaculate by stewards. Read entire member review >>
We were in stateroom 7044 on the Marina and would gladly take that room again. It may not have been as big and luxurious as some of the suites, but had plenty of room for us. It was right near the gangway, which was not a bit noisy and very interesting to sit on the veranda and watch the crew raise and lower the gangway. It was also a good spot to people watch as passengers came and went from the ship. It also was near the spot where the pilot ship would pick up the pilot whenever one was needed to help the captain direct the ship out of port. It was fun to watch the pilot ship come along side and pick up the pilot while on the go. Read entire member review >>
We had a B3 cabin, which is a veranda central cabin on deck 7. The cabin was comfortable with all amenities: ample closets, drawers and shelves, a small fridge, a desk with a chair, a sofa, a small breakfast table, mirrors, wonderful bedside lamps, TV. The best feature was the sliding doors leading to the veranda, where a table and 2 nice comfy chairs invited us to enjoy fresh air, the sun, the ocean, or the moon and the stars. The bathroom was a marvel in itself: all marble, a tub and a separate shower, lots of storage place, a three-sided mirror, good lighting. Our chambermaid and her helper, both Eastern-Europeans whose language we could speak, became our friends and kept our cabin impeccable, including leaving daily ship bulletins, and the chocolate on our pillows. I have asked for additional pillows and they were delivered promptly. Read entire member review >>
The staterooms we saw and stayed in 7020, were similar in shape and design. The designers utilized low maintenance materials for the cabinetry, lots of plastic laminates that look like dark wood grained surfaces. The bedding was so comfortable all we needed to do was look at it and fall asleep. Our bathroom was nicely done in real-marble as were all of the facilities on board. I wonder if there is any marble left in Italy after seeing this ship. There was a bathtub and a shower in all staterooms. (spotless) We found them more than adequate for our needs. The shelving and draws were not deep enough to our liking. Folks 5 foot and under may have difficulty reaching the safe and top shelf of the cabinetry. The verandah is a great amenity for all cabins on board and we used it frequently for reading and private sunbathing. The more luxurious suites with even larger accommodations have similar bright work and lots more space and amenities even on their verandahs. Some even had walk-in closets. Ours was a bit smaller but more than adequate for us. Read entire member review >>
