Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) –Yes

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No

Balcony View - Obstructed.

Balcony Size? 2 chairs and a Hot Tub

Was wind a problem? Yes

Any specific problems with this cabin? - see below

Any other comments?The Balcony had a fore Bulkhead obstructing the view where you had to stand to look out. The tub was behind the bulkhead so you could not see out while soaking. The power to the room failed and the toilets lost the ability to flush on the first night (it was fixed pretty quickly). When running at power the wind was pretty intense. The fold out bed was Ok but not as nice as I would expect for a stateroom of the this quality. The Butler and Steward were really responsive. The room was really plush otherwise except they had to replace the dirty cushion on one of the chairs on the balcony.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Yes and no. No wind noise from the balcony, the door latched air tight. We had very loud talking neighbors that could be faintly heard. And at night before bed, we could hear an intermittent rushing water noise. Maybe from 8pm or 9pm until 11pm. We couldn't pinpoint what it was exactly, it sounded different from toilet flushing. It wasn't a problem though, just enough to notice and try to ignore.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions. We were situated above the shuffleboard area.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

Was wind a problem? - No

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - Not applicable, this room was forward

Any specific problems with this cabin? - No

Any other comments? - Very satisfied with the storage space in both the room and bathroom. The closet location was awkward, parallel to the length of one side of the bed, with barely a foot of space between the two. Cabin is designed that keycards need to be inserted into a card slot near the door in order for electricity to work. (for ALL lights, outlets, tv, coffee maker)

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – NO definitely not quiet, very very noisy! Avoid this cabin at all costs. Directly over the theatre -- booming music, noises, and vibrations during shows, and off-hours when they are rehearsing (up until 12:30 am one night). Cabin also overlooks starboard shuffle board, so may be a noise issue for some (clinking, talking, etc.); we did not find the shuffle board to be a major issue as we were not usually 'home' during the day and the shuffle boards were not frequently being used (play ends at 8:00pm each night).

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Yes

Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – No obstructions, overlooks Deck 7 shuffle board court.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

Was wind a problem? - No

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - N/A

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Noise! See above.

Any other comments? - We loved the cabin layout -- very spacious for two people, good storage, huge bathroom. We also loved being on deck 8 as we spent a lot of time in the Atrium, and it was an easy walk to the main dining rooms (decks 6 and 7), plus the Waterfront is great for quiet time. We aren't big 'pool' people, so not inconvenient to be further from the poolside action. Note that this cabin has the sofa (vs. bed) beside the balcony which we prefer. From what we could see, cabins alternate sofa vs. bed by the balcony, so every other cabin had the same layout.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – No, we thought being on the Aft was very noisy from engines and water.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - ?


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – open aft view

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - no

Any other comments? - We would never book and aft cabin again. Some people love them, we did not. We had been IN the Haven before, there is a BIG difference between a suite and a haven suite.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – yes, with the exception of some screaming children in the hall and children running above. The nearby staircase was not an issue.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - no


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – great view

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - small but sufficient

Was wind a problem? - no

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

Any specific problems with this cabin? - The public areas of the ship are in much better shape than the cabin was. It shows a lot of signs of wear, esp. in the bathroom. But the mattress seemed new and the cabin steward did a great job.

Any other comments? - I would recommend this cabin to others.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – this room is right across from the door way leading out from the elevators. Could hear the elevators dinging if no TV on in the room.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? -No


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – Nothing is obstructing the view. This room is over the Waterfront so there is a roof sticking out from the balcony. This makes it so you cannot look directly down into the sea.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal

Was wind a problem? -not at all

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

Any specific problems with this cabin? -I have stayed in an aft balcony and had a problem with soot, but this balcony we kept finding straws, gum and cigarette butts in the morning. I do not know it people in the upper balconies drop stuff or leave it on their balcony and it blows down.

Any other comments? -I would book this room again because it was so close to the elevators. There were two times when I heard people talking loudly. For the most part I was surprised how quiet it was.

QUIET-- Yes, except in heavy seas when many things rattled
BALCONY-- Large Balcony

This cabin has the reverse configuration. The couch is near the balcony and the bed is near the bathroom area. This is a personal preference, but we liked this much better. We previously had a regular balcony with the bed nearest the balcony. We did not like this at all. This mini suite was more spacious and this configuration worked much better. When there are high seas, which we experienced twice on this cruise and the last, the ship has a lot of motion. It has much more than we had experienced on other large ships.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – No. The cabin is directly under the kitchen of the dining room - and every evening there was loud sounds of staff dragging furniture - or something, across the floors upstairs. It woke us up every night we were on board.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - No


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – The balcony was lovely, however, when seated in the chairs on the deck, the balcony railing obstructed our view - I am 5ft 4 and my partner is 6ft 1 and it obstructed both of our views.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - It was a good sized balcony. Private and didnt feel cramped with four of us out there.

Was wind a problem? - no

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? - No

Any specific problems with this cabin? - Cabin is spacious, and comfortable, but very noisy in the evening - if you have a choice, go with a cabin that is not under one of the restaurants.

Any other comments? - There is also no self-laundry service on board. You must pay for each item to be washed if you go with that option, and it is extremely expensive.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Definitely not on our cruise. This cabin in the door you see when you get off of the elevator. It is at the entrance to the hallway used to get to the pool/sun deck. It could definitely get loud, but the noise honestly didn't bother us (and we were often going to bed a bit early). But if you are going to be bothered by people-noise, no cabin from this one heading aft in the hallway is the one for you.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? No


Balcony View -- Since this is the first forward balcony on the deck, you had an unobstructed view forward. Note that it is uncovered and people on the deck above could see a small part of the balcony if they bothered to look.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? This is a large balcony, but not the largest in this category. We had two loungers, a regular chair and a small table. One slight issue is that we had a lot of water pooled by the door of our balcony (even if it hadn't rained), so we had to be aware of it as we stepped in and out of the cabin.

Was wind a problem? The balcony was definitely windy, but I'm not sure if it was more windy than others on this cruise. I think it might have been because it was the first forward balcony and it was not enclosed above.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? N/A

Any specific problems with this cabin? Besides the noise and people deciding our door was a good place to leave their glasses/plates/empty bottles of wine (again -- we were the door you see when you get off the elevator), no issues.

Any other comments? We are used to a 2-bedroom suite (sailing with three people), but since it was just the two of us, we decided we would do this cabin. It was a good choice and size for us. One thing I didn't like was the lack of storage space in the bathroom. There was definitely space, but the drawers weren't very deep. Since we never use the tub, we used that as an extra bathroom storage area for larger items.

Quiet Stateroom? (With comments on problems) – Very quiet, was concerned when booking due to being directly below buffet dining area. But no sounds were heard from above.

Was stateroom a connecting stateroom? - Can connect to 14830 via the balcony.


Balcony View - Give comments on view, noting if location of any obstructions was an issue. – View was not an issue. Deck 15 overhangs the balcony by at least 10 feet, so on the rare occasion that it rained our balcony was well protected.

Balcony Size? Normal or oversized for class? - Normal, 8' x 4'

Was wind a problem? - No.

If an aft cabin, was soot a problem? -

Any specific problems with this cabin? - None experience by us.

Any other comments? - We were in this stateroom during a Baltic Sea Cruise (Sept 19/2017) The room has plenty of storage with room under the bed for suitcases and what I considered a large wardrobe. Bathroom and shower provided plenty of space for us.

Any other comments? -There is an amazing amount of storage in the cabin. The closet is parallel to the bed which can be awkward.
