Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Good but the table on one side of the room beneath the tv prevented me from being able to walk around to my side of the bed. Minor but inconvenient. Otherwise comfortable. The newer toilets are much better than the ones on previous ships that stank. Space is tight in bathroom but adequate. Glad that they provided lotion again.

Ship tip

Promenade deck and the sun deck way on top were not used by the Europeans, so those were great places for quiet. The children seemed to dominate half the hot tubs all day. Because the Europeans tended to dine later, Americans had quick service in the nearly empty main dining rooms around 6 - 7 pm.
