Cabin Review

Interior
Cabin IF 257
a liitle worn in cabinets and drawers ( loose handles ) otherwise well detailed with all facilities 24hr tv with remote , quality bedding, nice bathroom with shower and toilet ( compact ), desk with storage , occasional table , fridge , power outlets ( need adapter ) hair dryer plenty of hanging storage , safe for valuables overall room not large but well appoinrted . As a single traveller through circumstance in my experience i find they charge over double the fare for couples ( each ) which i feel is a litle bit discriminatory as you are consuming less overall
