Don't do this in the summer. We were hit with temperatures in the upper 90s and higher, with humidity around 100-percent much of the time.
Other than that, and the chairs scraping noise from the grill above our stateroom (see cabin review below), this was a wonderful cruise.
The ship is on the small side, only 684 passengers. You begin to recognize folks a few weeks into the cruise.
This cabin has one major problem. All of the Penthouse class cabins are on the Deck 8, so they are under the buffet, pool, and grill area. We were under the grill, which has a wooden floor. Service began around 6:30am and that's when we would be wakened from the sound of chairs scraping on the floor. I don't understand why they don't put glides on the chairs. That would alleviate the problem.
The room location is otherwise good, conveniently close to the stairs and elevators, but not so close that the noise is bothersome.
We had a problem with our toilet flushing spontaneously. Not fun when you're sitting on it. They installed a new switch which didn't help, but a second switch a few days later did the trick. Maintenance guys were very responsive when notified by the Reception Desk, but not so much when we asked the room attendant to tell them about our problem.
I would not stay on the right (starboard) side of the ship again for this particular cruise because most of the ports had better views on the left (port) side. But in general, we got to see a lot and enjoyed the cruise a lot.
