Sail Date: Sep 2016
Cabin: Interior

We chose kind of last minute, less than 60 days. Our first choice for our 25th anniversary trip was not working out price wise or for the activities and entertainment we wanted. So we went for our tried and true fall back a cruise. I hated sailing out of Miami 30 years ago so I was not that happy to find the itinerary we wanted along with the few ships that still had handicapped cabins available was either out of Ft Lauderdale on an older Conquest class without the newer upgrades or out of Miami on a recently refurbished Conquest class. We normally sail the Spirit or Fantasy class due to easy of getting around on the ship for my husband. We also had to settle for an inside cabin, a first for us, but we thought the central location of the cabin would be a benefit, it was not.

Cabin Review


Cabin 4G

The smallest handicapped cabin we have ever had. Also a side entry cabin, which we have had in the past and liked on the Spirit, but not this one. The entry door and bathroom doors open into each other and when we first put my husbands scooter into the cabin we were not even able to open the bathroom door but 1/4 of the way which made navigating terrible. We fixed this by taking out the desk stool and backing the scooter all the way under the desk with the seat folded down. That way we could open both doors at the same time and move around some what. The TV was at a bad angle high up above the desk at about 45 degrees from the bed so the best view was only by the person on the left side of the joined bed, not that we watched much tv except first thing in the morning to see outside, get the weather, time and ship location information, or late at night before going to bed. There was also an immovable end table cabinet just inside the door that with the bed put together left a large unusable area against the rest of the wall and very little room to have as a walking space between it and the edge of the bed. If we could have moved it we would have parked the scooter there instead of taking up the entire end of the bed. The bathroom was the standard handicapped roll in shower with the fold down seat with a very large sink area and for once plenty of towel bars. The closets are both just behind the main entry door but were of sufficient size for our needs. The frig is in the immovable cabinet at the door. We had to keep a fan running almost all of the time to keep the temperature in the cabin at an expectable level.
