Overall, the cabin was wonderful and there was plenty of room to move around. Mom brought the rollator that she uses normally, and we also rented a power chair for her to use during the cruise. There was enough room in the cabin to house both without interfering with the flow of traffic at all.
There were more electrical outlets in the cabin than I expected. There was one located in the vanity area across from the bathroom, one over the desk at the end closest to the balcony, and one above the nightstand between the desk and the bed. This last one worked perfectly for Mom’s CPAP machine, and we did not end up having to use the extension cord we brought.
One of the negative things about handicapped cabins that I had read on these boards was that water from the shower would get all over the bathroom floor. We never had that problem at all during the cruise, even when the seas were moderate and the ship was rolling around more than normal. There are drains completely surrounding the shower area, along with a drain in the far corner, and they kept the water from leaving the shower area.
Another concern that I had heard was regarding noise from the Great Outdoors directly above the cabin. While we could hear chairs being moved around, the noise was certainly not enough to disrupt us. We also never had any debris from above end up on our balcony.
One of the few difficulties that we did have was with cleaning carts in the hallways. The hallways are so narrow that the carts used by the room stewards need to be moved before someone using a wheelchair can pass by. Because this cabin is at the far end of the ship, there were usually several carts that needed to be moved before we could get to the first bank of elevators. The room stewards work very long hours, so the carts would be in the hallway from morning until mid-afternoon, and then again in the early evening hours while they were doing turn-downs. The room stewards were always very willing to move the carts, and did so cheerfully and without a bad attitude, but this still sometimes made leaving the cabin feel like a hassle.
The ship’s crew was exceptional. I never encountered an unfriendly crew member, and most of them went out of their way to assist Mom with anything that she needed.
We had a great cruise, and I hope that this information will be helpful to others planning to stay in this cabin. If you have any questions, please ask!
