Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Strange layout and funny shape but probably comfiest bed ever had on holiday, balcony not as big as some had but adequate wouldn’t be able to spend a full day on it though

Ship tip

Try the sharing meal in the restaurant outside on deck 11, if you want a seat in squid leave the show as soon as it finishes as squid fills up very quickly
