Cruise Critic Editor Rating: Cabins

All 59 cabins are outside-facing with most featuring floor-to-ceiling windows and French balconies. There are six categories of cabins spread across the three lower decks. Category 1 cabins are the most basic, and well below the industry average in terms of size; these eight 150-square-foot accommodations feature small picture windows. One Category 2 cabin is as roomy as the junior suites at 183 square feet, but with a picture window instead of a French balcony. Category 3 cabins (there are 30 of them) are 150 square feet, but feature floor-to-ceiling French balconies.

There are Junior Suites at 183 square feet with French balconies (Categories 4 and 5); amenities are the same as in the smaller cabins. The Diamond Deck's 14 suites are double the typical cabin size at 300 square feet, allowing for an extra seating area and walk-in closets. Some of the suites are triple occupancy.

We stayed in a Category 3 standard cabin with a French balcony. Despite its modest size, the cabin was super comfortable, with plenty of storage in the marble bathroom, complete with a surprisingly roomy shower. Done up in elegant shades of taupe and cream with jewel-tone accents, the cabin featured a comfy king-size bed and upgraded linens, along with a flat-screen plasma television for access to CNN and movies. Cabins also feature a safe and a complimentary mini-bar that's stocked with water and sodas (refreshed daily). Our cabin was kept sparkling clean and fresh, serviced at least twice a day.

Niceties like a hair dryer, plush terry robes and L'Occitane toiletries come standard. An alarm clock radio lets you tune into nearby radio stations (when you can) and keep yourself on local time.

A welcome new design element in all ms Treasures cabins is the addition of a dual voltage plug. You won't need a converter to charge your phone or camera -- there's a standard U.S. outlet for that -- although you might want to bring the requisite two-pin plugs converter if you're touring before or after the cruise.
