I wanted a window because of the view going and coming from Stockholm - the Stockholm archipelago- This rooms window was so big! It was at least four feet by four feet. I understand the area was former dining room so that is why the window is so large. It was totally worth it! The room has a bed (queen or two singles) and a couch. It was large and seemed luxurious - my previous cruise I was in an interior room. One great feature (beside the window) was that here is no shower curtain - there is a round glass door that closes that really makes a difference in taking a shower. I loved this room. One minor drawback (which no one has mentioned) was there is a slight noise from somewhere in the boat (not from the Centrum that you are very near - there are sound proof doors and the room is well insulated.) I want to say it is an engine sound but when we were in port I heard it. To me it seemed like white noise - it did not bother me but it was present. Read entire member review >>
We had a twin room with a porthole, 3rd level, and a single room without a porthole 4th level. I recommend getting a porthole for summer cruising in the Baltic, with all the daylight, and for checking the scenery first thing in the morning. The twin room had a tiny couch too, so it was more relaxing than the windowless single room. Both rooms were spotless with excellent room attendants.
Tip! Level 4 is the same level as the Centrum Bar and the Guest Services and the Reflections Dining Room. This was a very convenient level, especially for an older passenger. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was very clean and quite small but you could work with it. There were lots of nooks and crannies of space to put your belongings even under the bed, in the mirrors and a washing line in the shower. Read entire member review >>
our cabin was spacious - we had 4th deck cabin, no balcony but a very large window, equipped with a full size double bed, a sitting sofa and a coffee table, a desk - and a very smart cardboard that fitted all in. bathroom and shower were very decent. at no moment we felt claustrophobic!

Large port window on the 4th floor with no blockage of view. The room had a nice couch & end table for relaxing, good sized queen sized bed & nice sized bathroom with shower. Plenty of fresh towels, very clean & a happy room steward for excellent service. Each night our bed was turned down & every other night a make shift towel animal was on the bed.

This is a unique cabin. It is the same size as a balcony cabin on deck 8, but the space that would comprise the balcony is enclosed instead due to the architecture of the ship. As such, the cabin has a whole lot of extra space in it, and the interior amenities are expanded correspondingly, giving us three hanging closets, a big armchair and a six-foot sofa. Downside is the position high up on the nose of the ship, fine for us but not for the faint-hearted when the seas went up to 16'. Read entire member review >>

If you want to go for an out side cabin try deck 4, We were in deck cabin 4503, great cabin easy access to the reception area, the dining room which for us was on deck 4. We had the lift just close by so could get up to the solarium and get coffe ;tea or soft drinks easily. our cabin was very quiet no oiverghead noise as there was nothing above us on deck 5. We had a dead end so no one was passing by us apart from our neighbours in the next couple of cabins. I gather the balcomnies were also nice especially on the higher decks.

We had a Large Ocean view cabin. It was more spacious than I expected. The design for storage was impressive. We dressed up for dinner every night and took two bags each plus carry on. We unpacked and had our smaller items in quart size backs which we stacked in the draws. We felt we could organize ourselves well. There is a safe in each cabin that came in handy for passports, jewelry, etc. The closet was designed well so we had placed to hang clothes and place folded items on shelves. The bathroom was little small but once you got used to it, it was fine. There was a retractable clothes line built into the shower to hang swim suites, etc. I would recommend taking clothes pins, they come in handy. The bed was comfortable and the linen was always clean and in good shape. Extra pillows were stored behind the head of the bed at the window; a very nice touch to get them out of the way but convenient to retrieve. The television set up was perfect as it was on a sliding bracket that moved out and turned from side to side. The small round table was perfectly sized so you could move around easily and still use it when sitting on the love seat or sofa. We were on deck four, mid ship so it was convenient to everything and had very little motion of the ship. The port hole was a little dirty so it was sometimes difficult to see outside when the sun was setting or rising. I would also like to see a layout when you can lay down and face the window. The way the room was laid out, your head was at the window. We still sat on the bed and enjoyed the sun coming up as we pulled into a new port. Read entire member review >>
