Bed heads would have been better placed against the porthole end making it a better access.
Bathroom smelt of stale urine and continual sloshing in wall behind toilet.
Rubbish under bed and woman's large comb and nuts under sofa cushions.
A rude awakening around 3am on the second night at sea a large rope dangling back and forward banging against our port hole with a metal frame attached and flashing light .
All in all not a very good experiance . Read entire member review >>
I loved the stateroom and the service. The bathroom was small, but nothing I couldn't deal with. Everything was so wonderful, I would put some of the decorating and space saving ideas into my own home. I never felt cramped or overcrowded and I never worried about having everything clean.

Fantastic... We loved being "close to the water" and that the large window provided a lot of light into the stateroom and my wife could sit "in the window" and just watch the outside sail past us. We expected to see great beauty in Alaska but came away describing what we saw as "majestic". It was ALL truly amazing and we know we really will need to go again as we feel like as much as we saw and did... there is SO much more to see and do in Alaska. The cabin was very much like our balcony rooms we usually book on the larger ships and was certainly just as comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was adequate but the service was outstanding! Would like to give additional praise for the waiter staff in the dining room. Our waiters, Ken and Frankie, were not only outstanding, but they went beyond service to make us feel very special! Read entire member review >>
The cabin was a good size with a large porthole, the bathroom was small with a very small shower. Our cabin attendant, Bernardo, was friendly and efficient and nothing was too much trouble Read entire member review >>
Midship cabin, we were well looked after by our cabin attendant. It was so nice to come 'home' to a turned down bed and towel animals. Again, I felt incredibly spoiled.
No issues with anything not working. Read entire member review >>
We were on deck 3 Stateroom 3000 (Large Oceanview Stateroom) at the very front of the ship with only a neighbour to one side. Our room was bigger than we thought, bathroom was adequate, lots of storage space as well as hanging space, the porthole was much larger than expected. We could see the tug boats manoeuvring the ship when getting into/out of port and we also had the sideways propulsion thing (sorry dont know the technical name for it) very close to us so every time that started up it caused the room to vibrate and it was noisy however I thought this is just a part of sea life and it did not really bother us. Not far from the waterline so if the sea is rough you get waves of water coming up into your port hole glass - I thought this was great !! The AC in the room was great and at times a bit too cold. Bit of a walk from the room to the stairs or elevators. Could hear noise (suspect dance/singers/band rehearsals during the day) we not in the room when any shows were on so cant tell you if you can hear the theatre which is just above you. Room attendant Brilliant. Read entire member review >>
Bigger than I thought. Quiet location. Good for not getting sea sick. Near bottom of boat almost mid section, at night used to listen to the ship going through the water and helped me sleep. More packing space than I thought there would be and plenty of hangers (brought our own hangers from home and didn't need to use them) Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a family Stateroom, portside, deck 7. We had a lovely big window.
two single beds, two bunk beds.
The speakers into the room didnt work and we frequently missed out on announcements.
The airconditioning was lovely and cool.
Wardrobe was large enough for the 4 of us.
The TV couldve gone up on the wall instead of taking up room on the bench.'
Great Hot water, shower decent size.
The room was quiet. We did not hear anyone walking up and down the corridor
Great access to the lifts and restaurants
Beds could be a little higher to be able to stash the suitcases underneath. Large suitcases were a bit difficult to stow.
One of the power switches was broken but there were enough to charge cameras etc
Ladders didnt sit properly and were always in the way. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4556. Large ocean view. Very central, same level as dining room, near service desk. Greatest feature almost the centre of the ship, very stable even during heavy seas. Read entire member review >>
We had a large oceanview cabin on deck three. It was spacious, comfortable, and clean. I was impressed with how much storage space there was. There was virtually no movement felt, and the cabin was nice and quiet. The large window provided a full ocean view. The only minor criticism about the cabin is that in the daylight hours, you could see that the fronts of the furnishings were showing a good bit of wear and will soon be in need of refinishing.

Were two rooms from the elevators and never heard a sound all night. The only negative thing I could say about the room was that the window was dirty. The closet had adequate space. Wish they would get flat screen televisions. Read entire member review >>
