We chose this cruise exactly one week after coming of Discovery last year doing the transatlantic with a different itinerary. We had nothing to complain about last year it was superb. We chose exactly the same cabin we had last year on deck 8 right at the back.
Discovery 2 is the sister ship of Discovery and are practically identical in terms of layout. For us Embarkation was swift, smooth and painless with baggage delivered and collected in a timely manner.
The cabin is an aft facing cabin which meant we had the sun most days whilst crossing the Atlantic. The cabin is roomy with plenty of storage. A great feature this year was the addition of USB sockets in each of the lamps which was handy for charging up Ipads and phones. The electrical sockets are 2 standard USA and 2 Eurpean type.
The cabin is probably one of the best right at the back of the ship. It is very roomy with lots of storage space. Very comfortable. A very large balcony with two sun beds. Two chairs and an occasional table. It is very quiet at the back as there is no through traffic. This room is sold as a two berth cabin although I noted that the sofa that is in this one can be utilised as a bed unlike last year it was just a normal sofa.
