Cabin Bath rooms, What ship has the best cabin bathroom ?

Here is a topic I have not scene in the forms but read a review stating how bad the shower was on the Radiance Class ships. I have been on a Radiance class ship and recall it was a very small shower that was circular and kind of stuck out into the room 1/2 way.

On the NCL star the bath room was divided into 1/3's with a sliding door to the water closet and a sliding door on the shower. The room itself felt small but I was sharing it with a couple buddies and this was great so shower was private as others could use the sink (glad that we were all good friends)

The Celebrity Equinox by far had the nicest of any ship I had been on, good size shower, good amount of counter space and lots of storage shelf's and closed in cabinet. It also had a nightlight that went on when the large room light went out. This was great for during the night not getting blinded if you had to use the bath.

I'm talking for regular cabins, not suites. I was in a friends suite on NCL Star and her bath room and closet was about the size of my outside cabin.

What is your favorite and worst ship bath room ?

On Carnival, there are Oceanview staterooms that have an extra mini bath with sink and shower. I love these cabins.

I liked the bathrooms in Aqua class on the Reflection, esp the night light feature. I was less enamored of the Sky Suite jetted tub with half curtain/half glass panel. It was challenging to get in and out off, especially in rough seas.

The night light is the best. LOL

The worst was the Voyager of the Seas. Worst cabin too. The bathroom was so small, I showered with one foot in the toilet.

We now book handicap cabins, so the bathrooms are larger, with walk in showers. The Gem and the Breakaway are great. As are the Noordam and Veendam.

I can not remember the name of the ship, my parents came back from a cruise on one of the old ships that had been cut in half and extended. They had an odd shaped cabin where you had to walk through the shower to get to the rest of the bath room. This was about 35 to 40 years ago.

I liked the bathroom size on the Aqua Class Celebrity Reflection and Silhouette cabins. And especially the shower head :) The night light was brilliantly deployed. In almost every cabin (especially RCCL Enchantment and Brilliance class boats) I end up showering in the spa/fitness center and hauling all my stuff up there and then trekking back down to the cabin with wet hair to get dressed. We almost always request to be directly beneath the spa on boats in that class to lessen the trek. Carnival has some small bathrooms as well (the Destiny type ship in particular) and I detest having the bath mat soaked from simply a quick shower. Ugh. Was recently on the NCL Sky and didn't shower at all in the cabin as the bathroom just never looked clean due to its age.

The best bathrooms I've been privy to use are the ones on the Regent Seven Seas Voyager.....VERY spacious. Our cabin had a separate, large, soaking tub and a stand alone shower that was large enough for a party!

As far as bathrooms go on riverboats, the SS Antoinette has a decent size shower in the bathroom which surprised me. It too has the tiny blue lights that come on when the lights go off for night time visits without blinding oneself!

I've also been on the other end of the spectrum many years ago on one of the Lindblad Polaris with only 80 pax in the Galapagos. I tell everyone it has a stand-and-spin shower! There was a drain in the middle of the bathroom floor for the 'shower' water to drain and the whole bathroom was about the size of a walk-in closet! Very tiny and no space to store anything!

Allure of the Seas balcony rooms had very nice bathrooms. Plenty of room for all business. Plenty of storage for toiletries. Spacious showers with curved doors gives plenty of room for even larger body types. Night light was somewhat ineffective. Largest and best out of the four lines we have been on (Disney, Princess, NCL) The entire room was the best we have had.

Out of the 23 cruises I have been on , the best cabin bathroom was in the Holland America Maasdam. Balcony room not only did it have a shower it also had a tub. Nice surprise, loved it!

Do balconies count ? In an emergency I mean ? I'm guessing men will say; yes, of course.......and women will show disdain. By disdain, I mean jealousy. Big Smile
