Dave, I really enjoyed the thorough and well written review of the Solstice. I particularly enjoyed learning about the aspects of the ship's design.

Dave, and others who might want to share an opinion...in your review you mentioned tha cabin layout and you preferred the beds near the balcony. When the beds are there do you find it more difficult to get to the balcony ? On the last Radiance cruise, this is the one thing that bothered me, it seemed so crowded that way....anxious to hear your opinion ?

It probably doesn't make much difference. With the bed by the closet, I still had to maneuver around the coffee table to get to the balcony so it isn't much different with the bed by the balcony. In either case you have maybe 24" of walkway.

Thank you Dave, it sure seemed alot smaller between bed and wall. Got me rethinking the CC cabin entirely....

As much as I liked this ship, I did feel the cabins were tight on floor space.

That's what I felt about the Radiance, and it states 179 sq ft cabin, exactky what the CC cabin would be....I have been spoiled with the handicapped cabins with my Mother

And I got a look at Sonny's Suite, ooh laa laa !

Thinking about a Sky Suite, location is better too, and lounge chairs on the balcony !
