The cruise line seperates the different categories (Inside, Oceanview, Balcony) into subcategories. The only difference in the subcategories is usually location on the ship. The detail above shows subcategory color, category name, and subcategory name. For detailed information, mouse over a cabin on the deck plans and a pop up window will appear. You will find diagrams, pictures and information about that cabin category including square footage and features.

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: 8 Arpa
* Indented (where the deck is more narrow and lifeboats appear) oceanview cabins on this deck are mostly obstructed by lifeboats and other ship structures. The only exception to this are cabins 8097,8099,8101,8122,8124,8126 - which should have mostly clear views
* Aft cabins from 8161 and back on the port side and 8188 and back on the starboard side are above a lounge on the deck below and may hear noise during activities in that lounge (especially into the night).
* Balconies that face aft of ship tend to be warmer than other balconies during cold weather crusing.
* Forward cabins on this deck are above or below the main theater and may have noise from stage production shows or practice shows.
