Braemar suite 7027

This is a marmite suite, you will love it or be frustrated with its shape, its next to some stairs, its under the sun deck it must be a noisy cabin?

Image


Odd shape, but you get almost a separate bedroom,

Image

Next to the stairs,but its stairs that are almost only used by those going up one deck, most use the stairs on the other end of the ship, and we never ever heard anyone using them, very handy for us, out of cabin, turn right and up one set of stirs and you are on the sundeck



Image

Must be the quietest cabin on the ship, we only once heard someone moving some sun beds once

Image

And thats is why I picked this cabin over 600 days ago, 27feet long, its the longest balcony you can book, (not sure that the next cabin to our left is a real cabin,because we can't see where they get into it,as the stairs are on to our left. (If there was anyone in there never heard them and the balcony lights were never on!

As you say divingbrit, it's an unusual layout but a very good size.

I always like to read cabin reviews and to see the photos so thanks very much for that. :thumbup:

The balcony is also unusual - big, and excellent on rainy days, but not much good for sunbathing on - that really is some overhang! ;)

Having (once ) very fair hair, never been big on sunbathing, it was great to have a balcony that never got the sun, but then we were in the Caribbean and was wearing sunblock factor 50 when out . :D

Looks like a lovely spacious suite and huge balcony. I recall several of the cabins on Deck 7 were in the shade because of this overhang but still good to have the outside space and fresh air. We really enjoyed Braemar and thought her a lovely ship. Thank you for sharing

Derek, just wondering who the Cruise Director was. We had Nick Cosslett from Southampton to Barbados, then Elliot Taylor took over for the Christmas and New Year cruise. I overheard him telling someone he was only on board for six weeks. Just wondering :think: Nice cabin anyway. We've been on deck 7 twice. Hope your cruise was everything you had both wanted. :)

Many thanks for posting your review and pictures of the suite divingbrit. :clap: :clap: :clap:

Speaking as someone who normally cruises in steerage (inside cabins) it appears to be a most attractive and very spacious suite. A very minor point, but I am not sure if the somewhat primitive style painting of the man with the green face should be there, it seems to clash somewhat with the style of the other romantic paintings. You could have used a bicycle on that balcony, it was massive. :lol:
