Cabin Review

Junior Suite
Cabin JS v22
for what we paid is was overpriced our room was a handicap room on deck 11 my husband had a walker and to get it into the room it had to be folded up to fit through the cabin door the balcony was an obstructed view the only good part was the bwed was very comfortable and the bathromm was perfect for a handicap person
