deck plan 6 cabins information: Aft-facing balconies overlook a metal floor (part of the structure). All fore-located Oceanview rooms are with round-shaped windows overlooking the ship’s bow. Some forward-located Oceanviews (portside and starboard) are above the Pyramid Lounge (on deck 5 below) so noise could be an issue. Atrium Promenade View cabin 6305 is called “Ben And Jerry’s Sweet” (aka “Moo Cabin” and “Cow Butt Cabin”). It is located directly above the “Ben and Jerry” shop. The room’s window is partially blocked by the shop’s sign. As compensation, free ice-cream vouchers and Concierge Lounge access are provided.
*(drydock 2018 refurbishment) On Deck 6 were added 1 Inside Cabin (#6137 / forward), 4 Inside Cabins (aft, replacing "Business Center" and "Loyalty Desk) and 2 Villa Suites (replacing the aft 4-Bedroom Family Suite).
