Additional details

Sail Date: Jun 2016
Cabin: Superior Stateroom

This particular cruise was the transportation/living accommodations from an alumni organization trip booked by my husband (whom I love dearly but didn't do much research on what the trip entailed).

Instead of a small group, the ship was under charter by Gohagan as the agent for alumni organization consortium travel. This meant 240 in the "small group."

The ship itself is clean, neat and decorated in the hotel lobby fashion with leather, chrome, and glass.

Cabin Review

Superior Stateroom

Cabin SS

The cabins are clean, well appointed and maintained. The toilet area is separate from the sink/shower which is not my preference since it makes hand-washing + going back and wiping door knobs a bit of a pain (if you have ever been on a ship with Noro, you will understand my concern). We were in Cabin 303. You could hear the anchor each and every time.... There were four deep but narrow storage drawers, adequate closet including shelves inside the closet. Our 19" cases easily fit under the bed.

Maybe some like the glass wall with sliding door for the shower/sink room.
