This was our first time on a premium cruise line and we did not know what to expect.
Were we going to wallow in the lap of luxury with peons feeding us grapes as we reclined on our loungers?
Caviar and champagne for breakfast, truffle sandwiches for lunch?
The cabin was small but adequate. There's ample storage space and the bed was quite comfortable.
The bathroom and shower stall were particularly cramped. I can't believe that I paid so much to shower in a phone booth.
As the cabin was near the bow, it was noisy as we came into port. The bow thrusters and lowering the anchor made the whole cabin vibrate. The rest of the time, there was very little noise.
The location could also bother people with delicate stomachs. There was a lot of movement in the cabin when the sea got rough. If you have a tendency to sea sickness, pick something more mid-ship.
