The cabin entrance was cramped, but the balcony was spacious and our steward was outstanding. Amenities (fresh fruit, towels, etc.) were nice. On the last day, we lost water pressure and then lost hot water--not sure why. New TVs are nice. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was shabby - Bathroom stunk of mold - variety on television - 2 news channels (both American - same stuff day in and day out) movies were "a hundred years old" - Nothing up to date Read entire member review >>
Overall cabin size, storage capacity and service by the staff was very good.
There seems to be an issue with toilet flushing system, particularly when ship is in port. This was called to attention of staff, it seems to have taken care of itself after a while in each instance. No explanation given. Otherwise, the Attendant kept the cabin in good condition and was attentive to his responsibilities. Read entire member review >>
Nice view from the balcony and a couple of chairs and a table provided. Note that this room was one of the few that was solid metal below the rail instead of glass which obstructed the view somewhat but not really a big deal. Bring a night light unless you are okay sleeping with he bathroom light on. Safe provided. Small TV but adequate. Thanks for having Fox News accessible. Beds were very comfortable as were the pillows. Luggage fit under the beds fine and closet space was adequate. Smoking is allowed on the balcony which was a turn off for those of us wanting to get some fresh air and enjoy the view when your neighbor is puffing away. Announcements by the Cruise Director can barely be heard in the cabin...should be an option to turn on to listen or turn off if not wishing to be disturbed. Room was quiet and no noise could be heard from adjoining staterooms. No noise from entertainment venues could be heard. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was OK, but very small in spite of the fact that it was considered a superior veranda cabin. The bathroom appeared to be clean, but did show signs of wear and inexpert caulking. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was nice - with lots of storage and a good balcony with chairs, a small table and one chair with foot stool. It was great to have it on Glacier Bay day. When the ship turned to show the Glacier from our side it was amazing and we had no one blocking our pictures. Also being on the 4th floor was convenient when they opened the bow (as it is on the 4th floor) and we could just walk right out to where the front of the ship was going into the bay.

nice/ clean /well worn/ they never fixed the problem with a balcony partition that pounded constantly even though a work order was submitted on second day. By the time we left the ship the screws had come all the way out. Cabin stewards were the only bright spot on the cruise. They were very good. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was on the Navigation deck with a large balcony. The room itself was a bit smaller than some of the other lines we have used but the bathroom was MUCH larger. There was excellent use of cabin space for storage, including drawers under the bed and cabinet above the couch. We didn't even use all of them and there were 3 of us in the room.
Our daughter, (just turned 18) who always gets relegated to the 'extra bed' said the pull out sofa was actually very comfortable and had more room than the other beds she has used. When it was pulled out it did make accessing the balcony a bit of a struggle, but when closed there was plenty of room to move around. We especially liked the curtain to separate the sleeping areas as a family we tend to have very different sleeping habits. Read entire member review >>
These Cabins are always small but was good enough. We had a Veranda Balcony room and a large interior cabin as there were 6 of us (Dad, Mom, and 4 kids, so went 3&3). The balcony is very nice and we used it a lot (much more than I thought we would). The cabin steward was polite and attentive, but couldn't do anything about all the other mishaps on our cruise. For his part thought, it was OK. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was very far forward and starboard side. It was just aft of the bridge 'wing' hanging off the side of the ship and one deck below. As a result, about a third of the sky was blocked and it generated a great deal of wind noise while we sailed. The door sealed well so it did not disturb our sleep, but in fairness this is probably an obstructed view room. 7001 was right under the overhang. I would not recommend a cabin any more forward than 7011, and the corresponding port cabins on the 7th deck. Otherwise, good storage space and a nice verandah, the usual tight, single sink bathroom. The bed was acceptable but nothing to rave about. The room stewards did an excellent job and were very personable. But where did they learn to shine shoes? Get them polished at the airport before you board! Read entire member review >>
The room was nice, but a little on the compact side. The stewards kept it clean and we were well supplied with ice as requested. We had a lovely view of the full moon and sunsets from our balcony and even from our balcony doors. I usually sat inside in one of the comfortable chairs and only went on the balcony for photos, and the full length doors made the views look nearly the same as sitting on the balcony. We had a good location near the aft elevators. We were not bothered by noise either from the lido eating area above or the stairs and elevators nearby, and we usually went to be early by about nine o'clock. Read entire member review >>
 This cabin is 194 square feet, and has a pull-out sofa bed. The verandah is nice and has two chairs, a small table and a footrest. There is a mirrored wall headboard. The décor is slightly garish (orange and brown). The bed is comfy and medium firm with lots of pillows. The first night (leaving from Seattle in September), we could not get the air conditioner to cool enough to keep us comfortable (cabin 7004), and we were told that we could not leave our verandah door open. This made for a miserable night for me. The air conditioner never got truly cold, but the outdoor air got somewhat cooler, so I enjoyed the rest of the cruise.  Smoking IS permitted on verandahs and the smoke wafts freely from one verandah to another. This cabin was quiet: little noise from passersby and no noise from entertainment venues. I liked the bathroom, and the dispensers in the shower to shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Unfortunately, the smell of these was somewhat strong and I am almost certain they are not hypoallergenic. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 4016. Plenty of room for 2. Close to fwd elevators. Large balcony with 2 chairs, ottoman and table. Shower and tub. Quiet. Small TV and when a program was shown in letterbox format, the picture was very small. 3 closets, safe, vanity with 2 outlets. We were very comfortable in this cabin and the attendants took very good care of us. Read entire member review >>
