After three weeks of living itinerantly as we traveled across the country, our 28-day stay on the Cap Cleveland was going to be the longest we’d be “in one place”, so we were anxious to see what the “owner’s cabin” accommodations were like.
The room is about 12 feet wide by 15 feet deep, all carpeted, with a single curtained window at one end (it would be an insult to call it a porthole). The view out is straight ahead, and when we boarded, it was not blocked by containers (though they were still loading the ship). There’s a double-bed in the corner with drawers underneath, a couch, a coffee table, a desk with a nice chair, a small fridge, a TV with a DVD player, a bookshelf, an armoire with drawers, and a bathroom with shower, toilet, sink, and medicine cabinet.
All this and it didn’t feel cramped, which immediately put us at ease. The only downside, so far, is that the AC broke on the ship on its way to Philadelphia. They tried to get a replacement part there, but it was the wrong one. We’re in Savannah as I write this (Friday), and HOPING that they get it fixed.
