I gave the cabin 3 stars - it was absolutely beautiful and comfortable! The bed, the bathroom, the whole thing was beautiful. There were 2 things that prompted me to give this particular cabin a 3. 1) It is directly under the deck - there is no bedroom above it. We spent nights with pillows over our heads from the noise - people stay up late (one night till after 4 a.m.) partying and are constantly moving chairs around and clunking on the hard deck directly above head. Get a PH1 on 11, but do NOT get this one!!!! 2) It is not cool enough at night. We were in a very hot climate. We had it turned to the coldest possible setting, and I requested engineering come in to make it cooler but it didn't do anything - every time I mentioned to our "butler" who was very nice, he would put his hand in the air and say "it's cool enough" - but we did not agree and were generally up at least once or twice during the night because it was too warm. We should have the choice to make it as cool as we like, people have different tastes when it comes to room temperature while sleeping. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was roomy enough. Liked that you could shower in the tub/shower combination while someone was taking a shower in the stall. Wish there had been two sinks and a vanity where you could apply makeup. The lighted makeup mirror was pretty useless. Bed was super comfortable. The balcony was adequate size. We actually liked the larger overhang, but it is true you cannot see the stars :) Would have preferred two televisions like we had on Seabourn so 2 different programs could be viewed.

We were booked into a PH1 cabin. The cabin number was 11047. Our cabin was serviced by Liduvina and the butler was Ashoke. We have had butlers on our previous Oceania cruises. Sometimes we use the butlers a great deal and sometimes we don’t. On this cruise we did not use the butler very often and we think Ashoke was offended or concerned that we didn’t. Although we continued to try and get him to understand that it was nothing we was doing or not doing that we made the decision not to use butler services very often. Anyway, not using his services caused him to start pressing and trying harder, which then created issues. We were on the cruise to spend time relaxing with little timetables, which meant napping every afternoon if possible. We did not order the daily canapes as we had enough food from the dining venues, but the butler decided to start bringing us daily canapes which meant ringing the phone in the cabin every day even though the Do Not Disturb sign was next to the cabin door.
The cabin and balcony were more than large enough for us. The closet was a good size and we found by the end of the cruise neither one of use had even sat on the couch. The bathroom with a separate tub and shower was great.
So, the cabin worked well for us on this cruise although we spent many a time talking about our missed 12009 OC cabin….laughing Read entire member review >>
mid ship cabin, very large and comfortable. we had a butler who for us is useless. we only used him to shine our shoes, take some laundry. We take this cabin for the size and the butler is part of the service. Tho, he did a great service one evening. We wanted a special dish from one of the specialty restaurants as a cocktail dish for our friends at 6PM. He arranged and fetched it for us.
He offered to do more services like unpack or pack, that we do not use.
The cabin steward lady always refreshed the room when we went out. Read entire member review >>
We had awonderful wrap-around deck. We aren't sun worshipers so, we were always able to dodge the sun. Plus, if the wind was too strong on one side, we'd just move to the other. Although the room was a bit smaller than most Penthouse Suites, it wasn't a problem for us. The bathroom was a perfect size. Read entire member review >>
Well appointed and spacious, though bathroom could be bigger, especially the shower cubicle. Great bed, good quality linens, towels and robes.
A welcome bottle of champagne, wide choice of afternoon canapes and great butler and maid service. Read entire member review >>
Very nice and roomy. Temperature was easily controlled and comfortable. Nice sized bathroom with tub and separate shower, large vanity with lots of room for our stuff. Had a nice sitting area, the veranda was a decent size. Nice and quiet. Read entire member review >>
We love the PH category on Oceania. The cabin is such a comfortable size, the bathroom large. I do feel the shower is too small and would give up the tub, but that's a personal choice for me. The best part of the cabin is the walk-in closet. So large, you can dress in there. I love it ... worth its weight in gold.
This cabin was in a perfect location; very quiet and near the mid ship elevators. Read entire member review >>
Stunning cabin - big enough to have a meal or breakfast in the suite, or sit about in the small sitting area with a book. Large balcony with easy chairs and pashminas if it turned cold. Soft colour scheme to make it feel warm and relaxed, extremely clean, serviced twice a day with fresh towels and turn down service. Read entire member review >>
We booked this suite because of its larger balcony. The room itself is a lot narrower than the other Penthouse Suites, but the balcony makes up for that. The walk-in closet is much smaller. The bathroom is the same as the other Penthouses with dark marble and granite and both a separate shower and soaking tub. Very nice to have the luxury of a bath and Oceania provides two types of bath salt and a bath tea to enjoy. The location on deck 7 and at the stern of the ship isn’t the best, but the view is marvelous. You also feel the ships motion and when docking (early morning) you really feel the vibration. If you are not planning to use your balcony a lot, I would suggest taking a different suite. Also the executive lounge on deck 11 is far from this room. For us it was great as we love being outside, watch the scenery and enjoy some time together. Read entire member review >>
We were three ladies sharing a penthouse. We found there to be ample room for us, as well as plenty of closet space and storage. We didn't even use up all of the available drawers. Our butler, Madhan, was outstanding! Loved being on the 11th floor near the executive lounge. We didn't think we'd use it much, but we did. Went there to play cards, get snacks, watch TV on the big screen (seemed to offer more channels than the TV in our room). Used the computers in there to print out our boarding passes, send emails, etc. (internet plan req'd). Read entire member review >>
Lots of storage space. Beautifully appointed bathroom. Balcony has an overhang from Deck 12 above so you can't sunbathe there. Some occasional noise of moving furniture from the floor above but only during the day. Read entire member review >>
Mid-ship. Right near the elevator, but still very quiet. Only a couple of doors down from the Concierge lounge so it was convenient to grab an early morning cup of coffee. As indicated in my review, the real disappointment was the 10+ foot overhang blocking vision of the sky. I would not have booked this cabin if I had this prior knowledge!!!
