My first reaction, facing nearly an entire wall of teak-toned drawers and closet doors, was to praise the cabin's commodious storage space. Then I opened the doors and found that the storage extended only a couple of feet or so into the walls. The ship's lack of a dress code reduces the space requirements somewhat, but the bulkiness of sweaters and other cold-weather clothing more than offsets that benefit. I was traveling alone for a short itinerary and I filled all the shelves and drawers. Storage could be a problem for a couple, especially if they book the 12-night round trip. Another potential issue for couples: the two twin-sized beds cannot be moved together on this ship.
Other cabin amenities included a satellite telephone, which doubled as PA system and radio through the speakerphone buttons; liquid soap/shampoo dispensers at sink and shower; and my favorite: a radiant heated tile floor, just the ticket for those chilly early-morning risings. Curiously, suites and inside cabins have televisions; outside cabins in all categories do not.
Deck 6 is the Promenade Deck, and views from outside cabins are obstructed, but views into those cabins from strollers or exercisers are not. There are four wheelchair-accessible cabins.
