I loved our cabin - it was perfect for the two of us, very modern and clean with plenty of closet space. Being on Deck 5 was great as we felt little to no movement, even though we felt movement in other parts of the ship for a couple of rougher days. The window has about 3 or 4 feet of windowsill, so I actually spent many quiet afternoons sitting in the window and reading! My fiance and I sat in our window coming into port and waved to small boats passing by, and they saw us and waved back! I enjoyed being down a little lower for this trip, and we relied heavily on the carpet fish in the hallways to find our stateroom! I definitely recommend this room over an interior, which our friend was staying in and which felt quite cramped. Another friend traveling solo stayed in one of the single cabins and her room was AWESOME! Small but so nice and perfect for a single cruiser. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was all the way forward. We had a large window. The room was nice and bright. We were at the end of the hall so it was very quiet not a lot of foot traffic going by our cabin. It could be noisy while docking and you can hear the anchor, but overall a good alternative to a balcony. Read entire member review >>
We were in a family oceanview, deck 5 room 5178. I loved our room, nice and quiet, mid ship, and with a curtain between the bed and the couch area. We had some family stay on the 8th floor balconies above us. Rooms 8150 and 8152. They said it was noisy upon occasions. They also said the toilets were iffy. (didn't always flush) I didn't think their room was any bigger than our oceanview. But they had a balcony (very small), which they loved. Other family members stayed in a mini suite, which I didn't think was any bigger than my oceanview. Read entire member review >>
Our room: We were in a window room on the 5th floor. I get sea sick and like to stay low in the ship. We LOVED our room! Room number 5152. It was forward and close to everything! We just hopped on the elevator and we were on the right side of the ship for everything we needed! Down one flight of stairs and we were off the boat! Splash Academy and O' Sheahens were right above us! Room was tight, but aren't they all? The bathroom had double sinks and was very clean. Yes, storage is lacking, but if you get creative, you can find a place for everything. Tip: ask the steward to empty the wet bar as soon as you get there. It is stocked. We brought our own soda and water. We kept a hotel room key in the power card slot all week. Our steward never removed it. One odd thing was that our bathroom didn't have any washcloths stocked. Odd because they have a soap dispenser in the shower, not a bar which I really liked, but provide washcloths! I mentioned it to our steward and we had fresh washcloths the rest of the week!!

The room was good, but the bed left about 18 inches from the wall. This made it difficult to walk around the room. The toilet was good sized, but the bath tub was too narrow and too high to step in, A friend required a step to access the tub and shower. Read entire member review >>
