Located on Decks 6, 7, and 8, these beautifully decorated 216-square-foot staterooms, with private balcony, offer a great vantage point for a last look at the stars before bedtime. Your choice of queen bed or two twins.
Cabin was small but had plenty of closet space and storage. Bathroom was adequate, could have used more electrical outlets. The bed was large and very comfortable. We loved the view of the ocean out the sliding glass door to the veranda. It was an aft cabin with a view of the ship's wake and 180 degree view from the rail. Read entire member review >>
We chose an "A1 Concierge Level Veranda". Suite 7121. This level is up there right next to the Penthouse Suites so it leads you to believe they may be somewhat alike....NOT! It was totally aft and the view out from our deck was beautiful although it rained most every day or was too cold to sit outside. We had one large suitcase that would not fit under the bed so it sat next to the deck door for the journey. I had read reviews on here about how small the bathroom is, but we still were shocked!! When sitting on the toilet, your left knee is about 3-4 inches from the bathroom door. The shower is maybe 18-24 inches in front of you and you can rest your right elbow on the sink. Dim lighting and no magnifying mirror for putting on make-up or shaving. The shower is 3-4 feet square...a tight fit even for normal sized people! Total counter space is approx. 12-18 inches long and about 5 inches deep.
The suite itself was VERY compact. My friend and I had twin beds that were pushed together..made up separately, thank goodness!....there was certainly not room enough to separate them. There was just enough room for one person at a time to walk between the end of the beds and the slender dresser.
We met our "concierge" Jemilie" upon arrival, but only saw her during the week in the hallway as she and her helper cleaned other suites. They were friendly and our room was always made up promptly when we left it. Read entire member review >>
Since this is the smallest ship we had sailed on, we expected smaller accommodations. We weren't disappointed, but the rocking and rolling was a little more than the big ships, and required some getting used to. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was fine. I don't know why we paid extra for concierge on this ship. The bathrooms are small which is fine for us. But, the bathrooms are short which was a problem for my husband who is 6'6". Also, the beds are too short for him, by about a foot. Tall people be forewarned.. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was extremely small, the love seat was not comfortable, and the cushions did not fit properly on the seat. The curtain were not fixed to the walls so that light came in from both sides every morning. The bathroom made aircraft both room look spacious, the shower was tiny, anyone even slightly above average in height or girth could not comfortably shower. Also the veranda door leaked, so during rough sailing the carpet was quite wet. Read entire member review >>
Really small bathrooms, closets and limited drawer space; smallest bathroom I have had on any ship. Would recommend the penthouse level for the larger bathroom. There was practically no water pressure. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was quiet and small with a very small head. Veranda could only accommodate two small chairs and a table that held 2 glasses. We tried room service breakfast once but the room and included table are too small to enjoy even the day's smallest meal. Plenty of storage space and hangars for our clothes. Good storage under the bed for the suitcases (3). Very comfortable bed. Air conditioning worked well while being fairly quiet. TV was adequate but picture could not be adjusted enough to eliminate all the darkness in the picture. The small cabin has made me decide that OC living space is too small for our next cruise.

A1 - 7038 - Port side, middle of the ship:
This room is conveniently close to an elevator and the laundry area (but not too close). There is a housekeeping supply facility just steps away from the stateroom entrance. It was never noisy or in any way a problem for us.
The room is quiet. The tender boats and life boats are immediately below it and above are the 8th deck staterooms.
Three of us didn't use all of the storage that was available in the stateroom.
The room was reasonably comfortable. It was always immaculate after the cleaning staff had visited.
The verandah is a great place to people watch when the pilot boats or tenders are loading. Read entire member review >>
