Two lower beds convertible to 1 king-size bed, bathroom with dual sink vanity, full-size whirlpool bath, shower and additional shower stall, large sitting area, dressing room, private verandah, 1 sofa bed for 2 persons, floor-to-ceiling windows. Approximately 500â€“712 sq. ft. including verandah.
This beautifully refurbished Neptune Suite has a huge, completely covered balcony overlooking the wake and side of the ship. It isn't huge by suite standards...the draw is the balcony and view. Read entire member review >>
The cabin upgrades are really nice! We loved the look of the cabin, and the biggest thing that we loved was the upgraded television. No more tiny tv on the desk!!! HOORAY! We also loved the new fold out bed, as that was much more comfortable than one's we have had in the past. The new bed was hard, but we had no problem having our room stewards add some pads to it to make it soft enough. We love the Neptune Suites and prefer to travel in these cabins above anything else!

Loved my cabin; however, we have serious plumbing issues during our last 24 hours. It was disgusting and had to leave our cabin to go to the bathroom. Could not use our showers and had to find this out the hard way. No one offered to move us nor did they share the information or keep us informed. We paid quite a hefty price for our room and did so for the service. Read entire member review >>
This suite has a great layout. Really enjoyed the separate dressing room & 6 closets. We tried out the Jacuzzi tub & it was great. We tried the separate shower but it is too small so we ended up using the one in the tub. Read entire member review >>
Very large and beautiful. Lots of closets and drawers. Beds are great. Spa robes and slippers. Very close the Neptune lounge. Bed can be King or twins. Lots of light in Cabin, great balcony, and an espresso machine. Comfy couch and arm chairs. You could dine on balcony table with chairs. Dressing area with curtain to close for privacy. Huge bathroom. Flat screen TV. Read entire member review >>
The Neptune was a treat - we normally have Signature Suites. It is a HUGE cabin with a separate "dressing area" with mirrors and a small seat. The bathroom is pretty much the same as the Signature Suites. There is a separate bath (with Whirlpool) and shower. There are also two sinks.
In the room was a new Bose sound dock that was very good - will miss them on our normal cruises.
The Neptune Lounge was very good and the attendants were very helpful - they helped us order dinner in our room one night! The lounge has nice food "nibbles" each day which are changed about three times a day.
We did not use the free dry cleaning and other services of the Neptunes, but they are really nice suites with HUGE balconies. I'm not sure I'd pay full price but if you get a good deal on upsell upgrades I'd take it! Splurge! Read entire member review >>
Though the aft corner suites are a bit smaller inside than the side suites, it was still notably larger than the SS I’m used to. Coming in the door, there’s a fairly long l-shaped hall heading into the room, first passing the small dressing room and make-up table, with 3 closets behind, and then the door into the bathroom, which is the same size and layout as the SS bathrooms I’m used to (shower stall, separate bathtub with shower, two sinks on a long counter with twin mirrored cabinets, toilet). Around the corner past the dressing room, you pass the minibar on the right and more cabinets and end table on the left. The long couch with coffee table and two chairs to the left, row of 5 closet doors to the right along the wall with the twin beds next to those opposite the couch. Past the couch on the left was a long countertop with storage below, bending around the outside wall with desk in front of a large picture window, then the door to the balcony to the right next to the beds. Very spacious and comfortable room – unbelievable storage even compared to the generous SS suites. There were far more closets (6 total spaces) and storage cabinets (5) plus drawers (8) spread all over the cabin that it was close to impossible for two people to fill them all for a 7 day cruise.
The balcony: There are no words or descriptions that can properly convey just how amazing and beautiful this balcony is. Photographs cannot adequately capture the space. It’s just huge! Open the door and to your left there’s room for the two chairs with ottomans and end table between the door and bulkhead. Still to the left, there’s room in front of those chairs for a table and 4 chairs to sit. And past that, at least 4 more feet of empty space to the end of the glass rail. Straight out the door it’s almost 10 feet to the rail at the aft of the ship. To the right, there’s a day-bed and another 8 feet or so to the port rail. I’d guess there’s close to 16 feet, maybe more, from the left bulkhead to the port rail. But wait – there’s more! As you head right towards the port rail, the balcony continues down the side of the ship towards the bow…at the same standard width as the regular balcony cabins, you can walk down almost 18 feet – two more recliners were down that side of the balcony plus some extra space before reaching the divider to the next cabin. And the entirety is covered above, for privacy, weather protection, and usually someplace you can go for shade or sun, your choice. Read entire member review >>
Overall the cabin was modestand small compared to other cabins which I have had with other cruise lines. It was nicely decorated yet out of fashion and cramped. We had a nice view and it was one of the SB Veranda suites. Overall Iwould have prefered somthing much bigger! Read entire member review >>
If you look at the picture of the Neptune Suite #4180 it looks huge, but in actuality it's much smaller with only 1 sofa and 1 chair. The deck makes up for it though, very large wrap around. Read entire member review >>
The ship is a bit dated. No electrical outlets in the bathroom, and not enough outlets in the cabin. The main entertainment space, Vista Lounge, has rows of bench seats that are generally comfortable, but they should be individual seats. Additionally, most of the seats do not have tables for placing drinks. But the ship has been well maintained and is comfortable. Read entire member review >>
Great wrap around deck but there is little to no overhang on the back if it rains, but the side does have overhang. Very quiet. Less closet space than the SA category. Great views and I loved it. Read entire member review >>
Our Stateroom: SB8147 was a fantastic cabin! There was plenty of room to move around. From photos, I had been a little concerned about space between the foot of the bed and the coffee table. I'm quite night blind and I was afraid if there wasn't enough space, I might trip over the coffee table. There was plenty of room though. We had more then enough closet space and drawer space, with more hangars then we needed...and I hung everything. The vanity area is very nice. Between the counter space in the vanity and the double sink bathroom, I had more space then I needed for all my girly make-up, lotions n potions, and hair appliances etc. There is a blow-dryer provided, but it doesn't have much power. If you have hard to dry hair, it will take awhile. There were also a couple of cabinets in the bathroom. This bathroom has a whirlpool tub/shower combo and a separate shower stall. The shower stall was very small and tight so we just used the shower over the tub. We didn't use the tub for a bath, but the shower worked great. There were binoculars and an umbrella in the room for our use. We had pre-ordered a bottle of vodka and Kahlua for "at sea" delivery and it was in our cabin waiting when we arrived, as well as a small bouquet of fresh flowers and a bottle of Complimentary Pol Clement and some water. The mini fridg was fully stocked with a nice selection of sodas, alcohol, and water. The fruit bowl was empty, but had a little card you checked off what kind of fruit you wanted. We filled it out and left it for our room steward and when we returned, our fruit bowl was full, and was refilled every day.
The balcony was absolutely amazing! I would say at least 5x bigger, probably more, than the standard size balcony. There was a round table with 4 chairs, 2 armed chairs with coffee table and foot stools, and 2 chaise lounges. All looked in excellent repair, with the very minor exception of a couple of cushion that were a little faded. Inconsequential! Read entire member review >>
3-person cabin with plenty of storage for 3 people. Veranda door whistled on several nights when sailing because of wind. Veranda is completely covered by above veranda so very little rain and less wind. Quiet and comfortable. Sofa bed was a little tired-looking. Read entire member review >>
The aft corner "wrap-around" suite is our "crack" on board, Although smaller than the SA suites on Deck 7 the huge veranda with a table for four with chairs, two chairs with ottomans and two loungers (which could hold 15-20 for a sail-away ) and the 42 feet of running aft/side balcony rail is what always sells it for us. This feature provided, I believe, the best views from the ship and was perfect for Glacier Bay viewing and allowed for great on-board whale sightings 4 out of 7 days on-board. We will book nothing else when possible.
The cabin itself had plenty of room for all three of us during the day. The King bed was extremely comfortable with a vast selection of pillows. The five closets and under-bed space provided than enough clothing/luggage storage. In-room amenities included a mini-bar (which went into the dressing area stool) so the frig could be used for ice and other bottles ( we had our steward keep both our small ice bucket and large wine bucket filled with ice all day. The dry bar held a good variety of glass and bar wear which was replaced when used. The twin vanity bathroom was very roomy and useabl Read entire member review >>
Deluxe Veranda Suite, 4180. Location was perfect - back corner of the ship, thus offering a HUGE wrap-around balcony. But somewhere along the line, the room itself lost space and didn't much look like the floorplan or photos of the suite. Granted, the staterooms vary in layout depending on location, but for the price we paid, this room needs to be better spaced. The location offered great peacefulness since it's at the end of the hallway. Absolutely no traffic so it was wonderful. If the sound of engine hum bothers you, don't book this suite. Having said that, we actually found that sound soothing and lulling. Superb views since we had both a side and rear view. Read entire member review >>
Lots of room for hosting parties. Balcony was very popular for lounging and watching other ships and islands go by. Plenty of storage, having a separate tub and shower is a great asset. Two sinks, two vanities always a plus. The king size eurotop bed provides the best sleep in the industry. Read entire member review >>
Deluxe Verandah Suite on Deck 6 - first one in the hallway from the elevators. Very quiet. Separate dressing room with dressing table -- wonderful luxury. Very comfortable king bed with lots of pillow selections. Mid-ship location, so easy access to everything. Read entire member review >>
SC 5190: Huge wrap balcony, side looked like bowling alley. 2 Lounge Chairs, 2 Chairs with Ottomans and Table with 4 chairs. Inside King Bed, small LCD screen TV (placed on side wall which was strange for viewing), huge bathroom with whirlpool bath/shower combo and separate shower stall, two sinks, 3 door closet storage in dressing room area and another 4 doors of closet space next to bed. Small fridge and bar area. Read entire member review >>
Great room, fantastic balcony, almost no noise from the hallway due to being the back corner. Some noise on the balcony but not overwhelming. Six closets, wow!! Nice bath with two lavetorys and a stall shower plus a whirlpool tub. A nice dressing area outside of the bath with a curtin to pull for privacy. Read entire member review >>
Location was good, near elevators but was a distance from the Concierge Lounge. Nice size balcony with a great view. King bed, plenty of floor space, very usable bathroom and dressing room with 6 closets and plenty of storage areas. Read entire member review >>
