Cabins: Decorated in tones reflective of the earth and sky, accommodations are comfortable, if a bit on the small side for new ships. Standard staterooms have ample storage, a vanity-desk, TV, safe, hair dryer, tea/coffeemaker, and refrigerator. Balcony cabins have a small sitting area with chair and table, but only Superior Deluxe Balcony categories (and above) have a decent-size seating area with sofa and have the use of slippers, bathrobe, atlas, and binoculars during the cruise. Although all categories receive mineral water and a packet of toiletry essentials on arrival, Superior Deluxe Balcony cabins, which are comparable to minisuites on some other ships, also receive a fruit bowl, flowers, champagne and chocolates, as well as canapés once a week. Standard inside cabins have a shower only; all other accommodations have a bathtub.
Suites: Suite guests receive mineral water, fruit basket, flowers, champagne, and chocolates on arrival; canapés are delivered daily. A bathrobe, slippers, atlas, and binoculars for use during the cruise are provided. Walk-in closets provide ample storage. Bathrooms have whirlpool tubs and separate shower, except for the two-bedroom family suites on Ventura, which have two bathrooms—one with a tub and the other with shower only. All have a coffeemaker, an iron and ironing board and the added services of a butler.
Worth Noting: Twenty-five staterooms are wheelchair accessible; 18 cabins are designated single-occupancy in either inside or outside categories on Azura only.
