These connecting staterooms are great family accommodations. You can bring the whole family, with room for up to four guests. Features two lower beds that convert into a queen-size bed and a convertible sofa to sleep two more, as well as a sitting area and floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a private balcony.
Our stateroom was excellent. The room was spotless. We understand the ship will undergo a refit this fall, but the only "wear" in our room was a small crack in the sink. The carpet was clean and showed no excessive wear (the same in the passageways). There were no odors.
Closet and storage space was more than sufficient for us. There we plenty of hangers in the closet. There was a small programmable safe and small refrigerator in the room.
Bedding was clean and comfortable. The TV worked well, though ship-based programming left a bit to be desired as far as timeliness, etc.
Windows were clean throughout the cruise. The balcony / patio was clean and a welcome retreat on busy days.
The room was very quiet. We heard no passageway noise nor any noise form adjacent rooms or overhead. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was clean, small and always kept nice by the cabin steward. Liked having the balcony. We are not smokers, and someone was smoking all the time on a balcony a couple of doors down, which they are not supposed to do. It wasn't very pleasant, but, that's the only thing that happened.

Of all the cruises I have ever been on, this cabin was the smallest. It smelled old and had very dated carpet. The bedding was nice. The TV was a 15 inch. Too small to enjoy. The blackout drapes had lots of holes in them, and it looked like starlight. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was nice on the inside, the huge issue with this cabin was we couldn't enjoy the balcony. The balcony is located a few decks below the buffet. Other passengers would smoke cigarettes and lean over the edge of the buffet deck and flick their ashes on us.... the balcony always had ashes on it. Beware of this issue if you book this cabin and plan to use the balcony. Read entire member review >>
10656-nice balcony with two chairs, room for others to stand. Convenient to the stairs to go to the buffet or Great Outdoors. Only issue was that balcony access was limited when the sofa bed was made up. Read entire member review >>
8540 was a typical balcony cabin with a connecting door. No noises were heard at all from the adjoining stateroom, nor from the room on the other side. The balcony was partially enclosed, which was perfect for a sailing in cooler weather as it helped limit the wind chill. Overall I really liked the space and would happily book it again.

Nice balcony, plenty of drawers, shelves, and closet space. Wonderful shower (felt big and had water pressure), and sink (high spigot, so easy to fill a bottle), and lousy toilet space (you couldn't leave the door open and have enough space to sit, because the toilet didn't face the door).
