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?
No way. I was counting the days until we could leave this cabin.
Noise In Cabin
No Noise -- Very Quiet Cabin
A very strong, unpleasant odor persisted throughout the cruise.
The cabin smelled like smoke as did the hall around that corner. The room steward noticed it, too, and tried everything. Heeven brought us some disinfectant spray to try and mask the odor, which didn't help much. I made sure to spray perfume everywhere every time we left the cabin. I complained to guest service but to no avail they basically said tough luck. My husband saw there was an employee smoking area underneath us, which made no sense to have smoking under our rooms stinking up the joint.
Temperature Control in Cabin
The temperature controls were VERY effective and you could easily maintain temperature
WiFi Signal Strength in Cabin 6109
Have you seen what the cruise line charges for WiFi? I can't afford that... (I didn't test it...)
The lighting is exceptional - the cabin was very thoughfully lit.
Spotless. Everything is in top shape and feels very clean
View From The Cabin
What view? I was in an inside cabin
In fact we were on the INSIDE of the inside cabins. lol.
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
Very Good. Chair or a couch with a coffee or side table
Your Comments & Observations (OPTIONAL QUESTION)
The room is definitely an inside cabin. In fact it was on the inside of the insides. It's at the end of two halls. That said, it was a nice and quiet room. However, there was an awful stench of smoke. It smelled like maybe the room had been a smoking room in the past. We later found that it was over the employee smoking section. In fact you can smell the smoke in the back hall. I had to spray perfume everyday and everytime we left the room just to cover some of the odor.
DeckPlanGenius Review Authenticity Statement
In a perfect world, everybody would be honest and there would be no "fake" reviews -- reviews for compensation, reviews by those with a business connection to the cruise line and even reviews by persons who never cruised in this cabin or on this ship! Use common sense and maintain a degree of skepticism with all reviews that you read.
