Past Cruise Experience:My First Cruise
Overall Room Condition Impressions
There is a little bit of wear and tear, but, it is in generally good shape
Would You Book This Same Cabin Again?
Its Not a Bad Cabin -- I would be open to trying a different cabin, however.
Noise In Cabin
No Noise -- Very Quiet Cabin
....with the exception of the toilet flushing. It caused my husband to have a physical reaction to his nervous system, which meant that I had to flush the toilet after him once he'd retreated to a distance so the impact was lessened!
No noticable Odors
I bought a deodoriser with us and this made a difference, particularly in the toilet.
Temperature Control in Cabin
The temperature controls were VERY effective and you could easily maintain temperature
WiFi Signal Strength in Cabin 12083
I couldn't get WiFi in the cabin
The lighting was good -- nothing extraordinary
I found the area by the wash basin very dark until my stateroom steward showed me where the concealed lighting switch was... it was fine after that.
There is a little bit of wear and tear on the bathroom, but, it didn't feel dirty
View From The Cabin
Amazing view - I loved looking at the view every day
Drawers, Clothes and Luggage Storage
Excellent. I was able to find a place for everything in the drawers and closet. I didn't have to leave anything in my suitcase
Technology, Comfort & Convenience
Needs serious improvement. Undersized flat panel TV and no iPod dock
Needs more sitting room. Only a chair and no coffee or side table
Your Comments & Observations (OPTIONAL QUESTION)
I'm having to think hard now as there was nothing too disappointing about this cabin. On opening the door to the cabin for the first time, we both remarked how nice it was - much nicer than we'd anticipated. The balcony was totally adequate for two people with two seats and two small tables for tea/coffee/wine (whatever your preference.) There was no decaffeinated tea and we kept having to remind our steward to leave out the decaffeinated coffee. The bed did not suit our spines although I'm sure that those who prefer a firm mattress won't suffer the same discomfort which caused us to waken a couple of times during the night and to take pain killers in the morning for the pain in our backs. The duvet cover though was suitable for the climate we had. Would have liked a pillow menu as none of the pillows helped my neck... you only get them in the Haven Suites and higher graded staterooms. The pre-cruise customer services did say they'd ask for an exception for me due to my chronic neck problem but I didn't get the pillow menu. My biggest praise is for the staff. The standard of services were very good and exemplary in some cases. It was seldom to come across a grumpy and unhelpful staff member and on the one occassion it happened, the supervisor was quickly there to address the problem in a constructive manner and she also provided us with a bottle of wine with our dinner because of the inconvenience caused. She was my 'cruise hero!' We're not sure that cruising is for us; we prefer to visit places and spend much longer acquainting ourselves with what is available at the various stops. Time does not allow for this on cruises. I have to say though that I came back home thoroughly relaxed and not getting stressed about what could happen, rather having the attitude that in the scheme of things, does it really matter...and invariably, the answer is 'no.' I guess that, for that alone, a cruise is worth it.
