Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Cabin was clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. Our cabin steward, Sandi was attentive and always smiling. However, there was no lotion, shampoo, or chocolates, all items we've used and appreciated on other cruises.

Ship tip

Be aware that the distance to elevators can be very long if you book cabins at either end of the ship.
