This is a review of our Andalucian Odyssey cruise on Noble Caledonia from November 12 to 22, 2021.
This was our second cruise on Noble Caledonia in three months, and it was just as good as the first – so most of this section is adapted from my blog of that cruise.
We were attracted to Noble by their itineraries, small ships, and the interesting and welcoming website.
Cabins on the ‘Skies’ are quite spacious for the ship size and age, ranging from 226 to 264 sq ft, and are very well laid out with lots of storage. All have ocean views and the top three categories have private verandas.
Standard Suites (11), on deck 2, have only portholes and small bathrooms; this is the only category I would not recommend. Superior Suites (19), on deck 3, have a picture window and the same bathroom as all higher suites except the very largest one. Premium Suites (13), on deck 4, have a walk-in closet and the window looks out on the Promenade Deck [and at night, people can look in]. The Corner Suites (2) on deck 4 are at the front of the ship and have two windows, one viewing forward and one to the side. Deluxe Balcony Suites (8) on deck 5 have the walk-in closet and a veranda with two chairs and a small table. Owner's Balcony Suites (5) on deck 6 have more closet storage and a much larger veranda (with the same furniture). The Hebridean Suite (1) on deck 6 is the only one with two separate areas for sleeping and lounging, and a very large bathroom (but the shower is European style with only a half-wall).
We were in Deluxe Balcony Suite 505, which was excellent, but I would recommend any cabins on decks 3, 5 or 6 [and deck 4 if you can remember to keep your drapes closed when you want privacy...]
