The cabin size was very nice, the layout was perfect (the beds align nicely with the sliding doors providing a beautiful view while relaxing or lounging), although there is not coffee table in the room which made room service challenging. The decor was very dated (I overhead a few passengers commenting that the cabins and hallways looks like they belonged on an episode of the Golden Girls and I have to agree). The cabin itself was in rougher shape than we are used to. There was a metal bar in the closet that once upon a time had been covered in a braided material, most of the material was gone leaving a semi sharp piece of exposed rusted metal (this was true for all 3 cabins we had booked, 2 balcony and 1 inside). The shower had a good amount of mildew. Read Less

BALCONY STATEROOM 7216: The balcony room can fit four people with a pull-out sofa bed which meant there was no coffee table inside the room. The bed was firm. I switched from side to side some nights to see if one side was better compared to the other. The side closest to the balcony seemed softer. The room itself was in good condition given the ship’s age. Dings, dents and scratches were covered over with paint or stickers. The light over the sofa was cracked but still functioned. The balcony was spacious and recessed into the superstructure. It provided more privacy then modern ones with the partitions. Being so far forward, the water drained inefficiently off the balcony when it rained causing it to pool for quite some time. The bathroom was the only portion of the room I found challenging. The water from the sink always ran hot, even all the way on cold. It changed once the ship reached the equator so perhaps the water temperature being taken in by the ship was hot to begin with and since the room was so far forward it was being heated by the ship more before it’s arrival to the room. The shower was equally scorching hot and would temperature fluctuate frequently during the 3PM to 6PM time frame. The water from the sink would come out annoyingly slow with no water pressure. Out of all the cruises I’ve taken it was also the first cruise where I’ve clogged a toilet. Just flush more frequently. At first I thought it was something I did but the toilet line for this section of the ship broke down twice during the voyage and the entire section wouldn’t flush. Perhaps this has more to do with the ship’s age then what I was doing. Read Less
