There are just four different cabin types: Inside, Outside, Junior Suite and Suite, with some variations in terms of layout and design between types depending on location.

All cabins have the following features: twin beds which can be converted into a double; two bedside tables, fixed lights, a closet, safe, fixed desk, chair, fixed hair dryer, phone and flat screen TV showing a large number of channels, but all in different languages (there is one sports one in English). Note the safe is a key type and requires a returnable €50 deposit. There are just two power sockets, over the desk and both European two pin, in standard cabins (there are more in Suites).

Every single carpet in the ship was replaced in the refurb, and as a result there is a fresh, clean contemporary feel in all cabins, with a light brown patterned carpet, cream-colored walls with wooden edging and a sea-themed picture which varies in size depending on cabin type.

Bathrooms are all the same size across cabin types, with a shower cubicle and clingy curtain; generic gel and shampoo from a dispenser; a trash can, space underneath for storage and a WC.

Interior: There are 123 inside cabins, which are either 129 square feet on Decks 2 and 3), or 134 square feet (on Decks 4, 6 and 7). They are a mix of double or quadruple occupancy, with Pullman beds. Those with space for four people have extra closet space. The beds are too low for a large suitcase to be stored underneath, but there is space enough to stack suitcases at the foot of one of the beds. Interior cabins also get a wall-size picture of the sea over the beds.

Oceanview: There are 277 outside cabins, which vary in size depending on deck (Decks 2 and 3 outsides are 136squarefeet; Deck 4 are 139 square feet; Deck 6 cabins vary from 139 square feet to 161 square feet, depending on category). The layout is exactly the same, but note the cabins on Decks 2 and 3 have porthole windows; all other outside cabins have large picture windows. They also get a small armchair. Note: There are also number of obstructed view outside cabins, so worth asking at time of booking.

Minisuite: There are 31 Junior Suites, 24 on Deck 7 and seven on Deck 6. All are 161 square feet, with variations in layout depending on location. The best-situated ones (if you're happy being at the front where you can feel the movement of the ship), are the ones at the front, which all boast huge sloping windows overlooking the bow of the ship. The desk is recessed below. Junior suites also have an extra closet. Junior suites get the lovely Olivia bathroom products (shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and lotion) and mini-fridges.

Junior suites can accommodate a third person with a small convertible sofa. There are also additional plug sockets in the walls.

Suite: There are 10 suites, eight of which have balconies. They average 215 square feet, and would suit a small family (a fold-up bed can be supplied).

They are the only cabins with balconies. Eight are forward -- four either side -- with balconies built into the superstructure; two are midships and without balconies. The suites run long-ways and the balconies are the length of them, so there is plenty of space for chairs, tables and loungers.

Suites have a few extra bits of furniture: an occasional table, a sofa (which does not convert into a bed, and is in just six of the 10); a vanity table and stool, the mini-fridges and enjoy a third closet. You'll find additional plug sockets above the vanity and either side of the bed. Suites also get fresh fruit delivered daily.

Bathrooms are exactly the same, and also get the Olivia products.

Disabled: There are four disabled cabins -- two outside (on Deck 6) and two inside on Deck 7), which include a wide door, a ramp to the bathroom and a foldable shower chair.

There are a total of 16 adjoining cabins on Decks 3 and 6, including four on Deck 7 we have 4 cabins with a small connecting entrance.
