I was in cabin 9072 - perfectly positioned between 2 lifeboats (on Golden deck) to give me a clear view out through the picture window. The cabin was spacious, light & bright, painted cream with turquoise soft furnishings & had twin beds at right angles to the window. Other cabins along the row did seem darker where their view was more restricted than mine. There's lots of hanging space - 2 double wardrobes & loads of drawers. The shower room had a roomy rectangular cubicle, a nice vanitory unit & plenty of storage. The toiletries provided are basic & unbranded - a bar of soap & a shampoo dispenser in the shower. I wasn't aware of vibrations or noise etc in this cabin. Golden deck is good - handy for restaurants, shops & outside. I've been on Sunbird, but it was too long ago to make remember the detail to make a sensible comparison. One thing about Island Star is that it is all buffet dining & informal - not my preference, but I know it suits many. Enjoy your cruise!

Hiya cant comment on cabin on golden deck but they have 2 other restaurants which do charge extra but they are waiterd served but is worth extra also you can do oasis but they have menuwhere you can purcase meals but if you want a la carte you pay for it and steak house 2meals with bottle of wine. 30.00 for 2 which is good vaule for money but you must book in advance .grill is good as well.
