Large cabin with descent sized bathroom. Lots of closet and storage space. Laminate throughout the cabin is discolored and doors don't close properly. Two doors leading to the deck are nice to have. Deck is very small compared to the suite. The TV reception is from 1980 at best and the remote did not work properly. English channels are limited and the same programming was offered every day. Pay per view channels were offered, but the remote didn't work to find them. Read entire member review >>
We were in 1320, an Owner's Suite right in the middle of the hump on the starboard side of Deck 10. At first I was a little concerned we would have a lot of noise from above being on Deck 10, but we didn't hear a sound overhead all week! 1320 was right off the elevator lobby, but sound doesn't carry from there to the cabin, it just makes the location very convenient! The only unwanted noise we had during the week was from a couple of doorbell ringers...I guess the temptation was too much for all the Spring Breakers to resist. During the day we could hear pool music and announcements from above when we were out on our balcony, but I've been able to do that regardless of our cabin location.
We loved the suite, and are forever spoiled! The space in an Owner's Suite is almost decadent for just two people, but I'm not complaining! 1320 was in excellent condition, with fairly new appearing upholstery and carpet, although if I were being nit-picky I would mention I did find a tiny stain on the sectional sofa. The suite can be divided into two areas...the bedroom has a queen sized bed and can be closed off from the living area with a curtain...very handy when one person is an early riser and the other is not!
A large swiveling flat-screen TV separates the bedroom area from the living area. In the living area there is a sectional couch, a club chair with an ottoman, a coffee table, and an end table. There is also a dining table with four chairs right by a dry bar. A spacious bathroom with a separate shower and tub completes the suite.
The suite had more storage than I could fill, which is saying a lot! As a matter of fact, the suite had so much storage we kept forgetting where we put things! There are two very large mirrored closets with hanging rods in the dining area, and flanking the dry bar there are two glass-fronted cabinets with shelves, and three deep drawers under each cabinet. A large cabinet under the bar houses the mini bar/refrigerator (that actually cools!) and provides more storage. In the "bedroom" there is a large vanity/dressing area with 2 small corner cabinets, a large glass-fronted cabinet, nine drawers, and a pull-out writing surface. Nightstands on both sides of the bed provide four more drawers, and a console table at the entry contains a storage cabinet.
Bathroom storage is also more than ample...we had two medicine cabinets, two under-counter cabinets, and four large drawers. The only storage design issue I had was in the shower. The OS has a walk-in glass shower and a separate whirlpool tub. The shower has just one dinky little wire rack for toiletries, so what's a girl supposed to do with her hair products? I had brought a tiny plastic basket to place on the floor, but I found it was more convenient to place my bottles on the edge of the tub and reach out of the shower for a bottle as I needed it. The next time we have an OS (and yes, there will be a next time!), I will take a small basket with suction cups to solve the shower problem. The OS bathrooms also have bidets. We found the bidet made a good receptacle for our dirty towels! We enjoyed not having a lot of clutter on the counter tops all week. Being able to put EVERYTHING away made a spacious suite seem even larger!
We also really liked our balcony. From the center of the hump we had a gorgeous view both forward and aft, and plenty of space. Our balcony had all wicker furniture...two chaise lounges, two regular chairs, and a glass-topped table. We spent countless hours on the balcony watching the world go by! Read entire member review >>
The Owners Suite (1320) was a magnificent cabin, clearly larger than on Voyager, at 614 square feet, ample closet space, drawers, bins, storage, etc. Loved the head (bath) with separate whirlpool Jacuzzi tub, shower (always had ample hot water!), bidet, toilet, and double sinks. Dining table was larger and had 4, not 2, chairs and the furniture had obviously been upgraded because the sofa and chairs were spotless and modern and we loved the new wicker furniture on the balcony (two chaise lounges, two chairs and table). It's a monstrous room and we want that with the 42" plasma swivel TV, stereo and DVD/CD system, special lighting, and bar. Even though it's located right off the hallway from elevators, it was quiet and tranquil. Only "complaint" was that we occasionally got some very, very bad odors that allegedly emanated from the latrine on Deck 11 above us but they would "pass" quickly and for future cruise, we may bring air fresheners!

Owners Suite, Cabin 1314, Deck 10. Just around the corner from the elevators...very quiet for the location...one deck up to the Windjammer and Pool...easy access to just about everywhere.... Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1628. Size and location are great. Balcony wonderful just need to ask staff to clean it during cruise if you have any meals out there. Bathroom is great shape. Furnishings are worn. The couch is nasty. Cushions flat/stained and not something I would leave in a luxury suite (maybe old cottage). Very quiet. Read entire member review >>
