The stateroom or cabin is approximately 10'x 10'. There are 2 lockers about 18" wide to hold our clothes, shoes and miscelaneous "stuff". At the top of the locker is located our life vest, hard hat, and safety suit. There is a sink with a mirror. One desk that is approximately 40" long with 3 drawers and a couple of shelves above and a chair. A set of bunkbeds complete the furniture ensemble. Curtains can be pulled around each bunkbed for privacy or blocking the light . I have the top bunk. The ladder to the top is metal with square rungs---not the most comfortable climbing barefooted. However, my bed is quite comfortable with a duvet and pillow. I brought my own, so now I have two. There are rails around the bed so that I won't fall out in a pitching sea.There are 4 hooks on the wall to hang back- packs, towels, jackets, or whatever.The bathroom consists of a shower and toilet, which we share with two other ladies. The floor is fully carpeted. We have a steward who makes the bed, vacuums, cleans the bathroom, and leaves fresh towels daily. This is my home for the next two months.
