We have stayed in these cabins and love them. There is no noise, they go by the decks so quickly, if people want to stare they won't see much. Enjoy!

How sad for those on the October 4th and 11th sailings. I had wondered how they could make such a repair without going to dry dock. Here's hoping all goes well in Philadelphia.
