The air conditioning did not work properly for the first day and a half, making our cabin
uncomfortably warm. It took a little complaining to get the staff to fix it. Also, the divider between our veranda and the one next to ours had a loose bolt that caused it to rattle loudly.
That was repaired on the same day that I reported it. We were not offered any ship credit for the inconvenience. Otherwise, the cabin was fine. Nice large flat screen TV and new carpet
and drapery. Read entire member review >>
good size cabin with king bed (or 2 twins), small sofa bed and small counter with built-in fridge. Best part of this cabin was the oversized balcony that had 2 chairs, 2 loungers, a footstool and small coffee table. Read entire member review >>
LOVED this larger Aft View Balcony! The balcony is LARGE and not covered, and you cannot beat the view!
Cabin is bigger (wider and longer) than other VB balconies. Storage was excellent. Hubby LOVES the DVD player and option to rent movies from the front desk. Read entire member review >>
Excellent aft facing cabin. Great cabin stewards. Highly recommend this cabin. Being an aft facing cabin we thought we might experience soot, or garbage blowing this balcony, but did not experience any. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was not very friendly to my wife's scooter. The steward' shoved the beds together and we could squeeze it in on the side of the bed. He offered to "house it" and we could contact him when we needed it but this wasn't deemed very reasonable to us. Cabin temp was adjustable and after coming to the room from any venue on the ship it felt good that we had the selector on HEAT. Read entire member review >>
Our room was neat and clean. We had plenty of room for the 4 of us. Our steward was fabulous and we loved the balcony. My only complaint was the murphy bed - it was on top of our heads (queen bed). When I leaned up at night I would literally hit my head because it hung down so low. I made me feel claustrophobic. Read entire member review >>
We had a verandah room, number 5050, on the port side of the ship. It was fairly standard in size. We’ve had larger, and probably one or two smaller. It was an efficiently designed room with good storage space. The balcony was similar to most that we have had. The big difference in this room was found in the bathroom. There was a shower/tub combination instead of the typical shower alone. This was unprecedented in our experience. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was larger than I expected and had tons and tons of storage, but everything was a bit worn and definitely past it's prime. It was wonderful to have our own private "sail away" party on the verandah or just enjoy pre-dinner cocktails. Sailing in to Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta in the early morning with a view from bed was amazing. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4051 should NOT be sold as a wheelchair accessible category VD cabin. Here are some reasons:1-There was barely enough room for a travel-sized wheelchair to pass by the bottom of the bed. 2-It was extremely difficult for a wheelchair user to climb the ramp, cross the door jamb and go down the ramp onto the balcony, even with great assistance and the door held open. It was very dangerous to come down the ramp on the balcony side and need to immediately turn sharply to the left while on the ramp (or hit the railing).3-The television is too small and too far away for a wheelchair user (unless the wheelchair is at an angle on the ramp toward the balcony). 4-There is insufficient space at the bathroom sink. 5-The lighting in the cabin was very poor.6-There was no seating area in the cabin, as was described for VD cabins.

cabin #4183, Rock and Roll Baby, with plenty of black soot, creaks, groans, and plenty of vibration. The drawers at the foot of the bed rolled in and out all night long, later on an officer, told me it wasn't the ship at all; that there were ghosts in those stern cabins, and they climb in and out of those drawers! (i swear to god) It is a superb cabin to commit suicide from however; you look down into the propeller wash, it's hypnotizing, it really is, and you realize you have been burned for $1200 to cruise around nowhere, and you can't get off !!
The room stewards were VERY GOOD, probably the BEST SERVICE ON THE WHOLE DAM
boat. We gave them small gifts besides their gratuities. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 1122, farthest port aft, under dining room, ceiling noise from moving furniture all night. Sleep compromised. Also engine and vibration noise. Cold water in shower which was eventually fixed.
Cabin 4134, very nice, more spacious with verandah but hot water was lacking for the shower. Read entire member review >>
The ship was kept very clean, including our cabin. However, our cabin's furnishings were a bit run down. (EX: The fabric on the sofa was worn, the deck chair cushion was torn, the side table was chipped)The queen bed was very comfortable. Our 12 year old daughter said her sofa bed was on the lumpy side but she conked out pretty quickly each night. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is located forward and on the port or left side of the ship on the 4th deck. It is right off the elevators. Good storage, great location and nice balcony. Bathroom has a tub and good amount of storage as well. It does have a connecting door which can cause noise issues if you have noisy neighbors - so please consider this. It is a true 3 person cabin - the couch is not a full size couch - it opens to a twin bed and you cant get to the veranda when it is out. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of room. The couch was located close to the window which makes it difficult to deal with a wheelchair. The room has a tub which was nice in bathing our wheelchair bound daughter. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 5009 - Quad cabin right at front of ship on starboard side. Was quiet area, never had any issue with noise from surrounding cabins or hall. Short walk to the forward elevators. Read entire member review >>
VD 4136 - aft port side with deeper balcony (about 2 extra feet). Nice location directly above the entrance to the dining room. Not above or below any public room. Near elevators, but was never noisy with people coming and going. Only noticed noise on the last evening when porters were bringing luggage to the lobby. Port side is great for private viewing of ports when coming in on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was very quiet. It had an angled balcony, which besides being slightly larger, offered us a complete view of the whole side of ship.
Our location was one stairwell and one floor from the dining hall. Read entire member review >>
Good location, although it's near the aft elevators and there's considerable traffic and the elevator chimes can be heard. Might not be the best for those who insist on absolute quiet. Very short distance to the main dining room. Read entire member review >>
