Here are some tips that you should keep in mind when looking for cabins on this deck. There may be other issues that we haven't noted, and if you are aware of any issues we have not listed, please contact us and let us know so that we can add it to the list.

Deck: Deck 8
* Launderette: across from staterooms: 8249 and 8251
* There is a overhang from the deck above that will shade the balconies of cabins 8212 to 8322 on the port side and 8215 to 8327 on the starboard side.
* Aft facing cabin balconies are semi-private. The divider between the balconies comes down at a slant which allows people on the balcony next to yours to view your balcony when standing at the railing.
* Cabins 8192 and aft and 8193 and aft are below public areas on the deck above and have the potential for noise issues from that area. This is more likely an issue for the cabins on the aft of the deck which are below the buffet and Havana Bar areas.
* Balconies that face aft of ship tend to be warmer than other balconies during cold weather crusing.
