Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
First time we have stayed right at the front of ship it was ok until the weather was a bit rough it did not bother my husband but it made me a bit queasy.Regarding the cabin itself for a outside cabin it was a great size with a big picture window.

Ship tip

Get into shows early for a decent seat.
