We have B747 booked! (Inside stateroom so not quite so posh!) I am interested in corridor or engine noise etc and what the launderettes are like.

Cant help on the cabin question but the launderettes are good. They have two washers, two dryers plus two irons and ironing boards in each one. The machines are pretty industrial but very good. Only issue is people not checking back on their laundry so you may need to empty the washer or dryer to allow you to put your clothes in. It becomes more practical as the cruise progresses and in fact can reduce the burden of the washing chores when you get home.

Found a good pic of the aft of Ventura here which has the same layout as Azura.

Those in aft B deck balconies should find their balconies are a bit larger than those to the port or starboard. Im perplexed at the suggestion that the D deck aft cabin is an obstructed view. The only thing I can think of is if you look at the second cabin in from the left on D deck (the second row of cabins up from sea level on the aft) you can see a dividing support and then a balcony devide which seperates D735 from the adjacent suite balconies. Well these divides look to be off set a little meaning that the view from the balcony doors may not be the full width of the doors.

Im sure someone will come on and explain it better but if you look at the picture it may make more sense.

Hi - for all of you wanting advise on aft balconies. The following link shows a picture which you can enlarge. You can also click and drag it so individual balconies.

From what I can see the obstructions on D deck look small and I wouldn't worry . However there are some on B deck which are quite bad obstructions. ie. large pillar in centre of the balcony.

Definately worth checking out if you room is affected. It seems to be B750 and B751 which are worst affected

Hi I have B747 booked for this January, can you tell me how was the room and also is there access to the deck from the exit shown on the boat profile by the cabin/corridor.
