The cabin was another excellent aspect of this cruise. My teenager slept on the couch/bed and said it was quite comfortable for such a bed. The large balcony was wonderful and gave us some privacy under the awning but the ability to see fantastic scenery at the railing. The location of the cabin near the bow on deck 8 was really outstanding for access to dining, shopping, and amenities. I was worried its proximity would lead to disrupted sleep from the noise of the ship, but the noise was rarely at times we were not already awake. The location was very quiet.
The bathroom and cabin were spacious enough to maneuver, although I did stub my toe badly on the last day on the drawer under the couch. My husband believed the shower was a bit small, but my son and I had no issues with the size of the bathroom. The storage initially seemed it might be small, but three of us managed to unpack our clothes into just the closet and drawers and still had the two shelves under the TV available.
Speaking of television, the comedian made fun of the View from the Bridge channel, but my family found that channel excellent for sleeping. The Navigation Channel was also useful, but they need to work on their views. They are generally not centered on the ship's location and the perspectives are kind of useless because they go close up to pretty much out in space and from the moon. A more regional view is needed. Finally, the TV offers four movie channels that show recent movies, which was nice for those sea days when nothing else worth doing was going on.
Another cabin positive was the provided bathroom sundries -- shampoo, body wash, soap, and body lotion. The lights to request room cleaning or to not disturb were great. The room stewards were fantastic and did a great job keeping the room made up and clean. I had no real complaints about the cabin. Read Less
