Fathom Adonia Oceanview Stateroom Tour #traveldeep ADCheap Is The New Classy

Are you planning to cruise soon? We recently cruised with Fathom Travel on an Impact Travel Cruise. We have cruised before but have always stayed in interior cabins. This time we stayed in an oceanview room and we wanted to share that experience with you. Take a look around our Fathom Adonia Oceanview Stateroom so that you can see if this might be a room you would like on a cruise ship.

Fathom Adonia Oceanview Stateroom Tour

As I said before, we have always stayed in interior cabins when traveling via cruise in the past. There are advantages to that type of room. The main one is that it’s cheaper. Also, if you are a person that is scared of seeing the water then it might help you to have a break from it while in your cabin. I am not scared and love looking at the water while trying to go to sleep. I found it so relaxing seeing the moonlight on the waves. So, this trip taught me that I prefer staying in an oceanview stateroom.

Location…
We stayed in room D026. We were on the 4th floor of the ship. I loved the location of the room. When we walked out of our room and to the right, we came out at the Reception desk and the desk to make Excursion and Impact Travel reservations. There was also a bank of elevators. I found that really convenient. When we went to the left, we also had another bank of elevators close by. We were close enough to the people gathering areas for convenience though we were not bothered by noise or things keeping us up at night.

Upgrade If You Can…
I obviously loved the view. Having an oceanview stateroom was amazing. I often have trouble sleeping at night – not due to noise or distractions. I just suffer from insomnia at times. I slept in the bed closest to the window and sometimes I would just sit up and stare out at the waves. It was so beautiful and I found it really relaxing. Not into looking at the waves at night? Close the curtains and then open them back in the morning. If you can budget for the upgrade to an oceanview stateroom, I highly recommend it.

The Coffee & Tea Setup…
I also really enjoyed the tea setup in the room. It was full of several flavors of tea and coffee. Our room also had a really cool coffee pot similar to the percolators that we used to use all the time here in the United States {this is a British ship}. We would put water in the top of the pot, plug it in and then it would heat the water to boiling. Then you could just add your instant coffee or tea bag, milk and sugar, and voila! Our steward would refill this, but we also got teabags from the buffet to refill it or went to reception if we wanted special flavors {I love Mint}. I don’t think any other stateroom I have stayed in had this feature and I found it to be a great surprise.

The Bedding Arrangement…
There were two beds and the couch was a foldout. So, you can pretty comfortably fit 3 people in this stateroom. One thing you should consider: I slept on the bed closest to the window, then Amber slept in the middle and Mackenzie slept on the couch. If you have to get up in the night to go to the restroom {like I do} you might want to consider taking the couch. There is no room to walk between the bed when folded out as it is just about flush against the cabinetry on the other side of the cabin. So, Mackenzie would have to get up when I needed to “go” and I would roll over his bed like a Weeble Wobble, lol. We are all comfortable with each other, so we found it humorous but it’s just something I wanted to throw out there if you might not feel the same that we do. Otherwise, we loved the room and the beds were quite comfy in our experience {especially the pillows} and otherwise the room was set up really well.

The Bathroom…
The bathroom was pretty typical of what you get on any cruise ship. I do feel like this bathroom had more shelving than what I have noticed on other ships, though. Amber and Mackenzie are teens and have a lot of beauty type products. I am pretty simple and don’t have much. We all had room to store what we needed to in the bathroom without fighting over space.

The TV…
The TV also had a ton of channels to skim through and I always like watching the channels that tell all about the boat and our current location. I also caught a new Kate Winslet movie while on the cruise. She was a landscape architect but I missed the first few minutes. When I got home, I learned it was called, “A Little Chaos.” It was really good. You should definitely watch it if you get the chance.

The Storage…
There was plenty of storage. I generally bring a suitcase and then a small duffel bag or tote with other stuff in it. I think next time I travel, I will bring a suitcase and then another suitcase crammed inside with my clothes in it. That way I would have a whole suitcase for souvenirs! If you bring a lot of luggage, there are tons of places to store them in your room. I let the kids use the cabinetry and Amber could actually fit her luggage in there, along with all her clothing on hangers. Mackenzie did the same. They also had several drawers each as well as a hook next to the bathroom to hang things on.

I just left my stuff in the suitcase. I didn’t have to do that, I just always do as I am terrified of leaving something behind. For the things that I kept out of my suitcase, I had a hook on the wall above my suitcase, a nightstand by my bed and the area below the window is like a window seat. It was perfect for keeping our paintings safe that we did while on the ship.

Also in the cabinetry was a mini fridge. We kept our chocolate in there until we left the ship. This is also where the life jackets were stored {above the kids’ closets}. And continuing on was a desk where Amber was able to do her makeup every morning. I also did a little blog work there. I like how it all looked like one really nice piece of furniture and wasn’t broken up about the room. I think it helped make the room appear longer and larger overall.

And A Fun Little Bonus…
Here is another feature that I have not seen on any other ship that I have been on. We had this cool little sign next to our door that we could write on every day. We didn’t change it up, because we liked our Ferris Bueller’s Day Off inspiration {we all love this movie}, but a lot of people did. It was fun to walk by cabins and see what people had written each day. Bueller, Bueller…

    I haven’t been on a cruise in a while, but when I was my room was like a closet. This stateroom looks SO nice.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      It really was. With 3 people, some cruise staterooms can get really crowded. This one worked great for us.

  2. I’ve never been on a cruise yet. Hoping to take one soon sometime. This looks like a great one!

  3. This looks like so much fun! I have been trying to talk my husband into taking a cruise. These rooms look much bigger than I imagined.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      They really are. Naturally, cruise rooms are not that big because there is only a limited amount of space. But they do a lot with the space allotted.

  4. I haven’t been on a cruise in years. The next time I go, I’ll definitely upgrade to a stateroom. I like the idea of the cool little sign outside your door that you can change.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      Oh yeah, that was really cool. I think that might be exclusive to Fathom cruises. I know that I haven’t see it on any other cruiselines. :)

  5. I haven’t cruised ever. I’d love to though, and 3 out of my 4 kids want to go too!

  6. I’ve never traveled on a cruise but I really want to. I am nervous because I get sea sick.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I used Seabands on my first two cruises because I get seasick and I was afraid I would on the ships. I put them on as soon as we left the house in North Carolina {we drove} and didn’t take them off until we got back home. No problems whatsoever. This trip, I forgot them and couldn’t find any at any stores on the way. I got on the ship and they had them for sale but I decided to wait it out and see. I never experienced any seasickness at all so I never bought any more. :)

  7. I went on my honeymoon on a cruise. It was an amazing time. I want to go again. Looks like Fathom is who I should choose.

  8. Angelic Sinova says:

    I’m going on my first cruise (to the Bahamas) this October and this post just made be so excited! I can’t wait, cruises seems like so much fun.

  9. Looks great! Our honeymoon years ago was on a cruise ship. We were in a very tiny, inside room. Your ocean view room size and window to the outside looks like a great upgrade!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      That was definitely our experience. Our inside rooms were good, too, because we were on a cruise. ;) But the oceanview was much better. :D

  10. We are a cruising family so this is on our must do list!

  11. The tea and coffee set up in the stateroom is really neat. I would also enjoy looking out over the waves at night. How relaxing.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      You sound just like me. Sipping tea or coffee and watching the waves was how I spent a lot of my stateroom time. :)

  12. I need to plan a cruise trip. These tips will help me when I do.

  13. My dad and his brothers and sisters go on cruises all the time and they refuse to stay in a room that isn’t ocean side. I’ve never been, but my 3 kids keep begging to go on one.

  14. The rooms do sound comfortable! I’d definitely want to go for an ocean view.

  15. This room looks perfect and cozy!

  16. I love the color scheme of the room! Super jealous.

  17. This room is perfect! I want to stay there a few days.

  18. Looks so much fun! The bed looks so comfy, perfect for honeymoon

  19. I hvae friends planning on going on a cruise I’ll have to let them know. This looks like a wonderful room.

  20. I have never gone on a cruise before, this looks like a great place to go on one though. Almost super spacious! Thanks for sharing, really opens my mind to the idea of attending a cruise!

  21. Karlyn Cruz says:

    Oh, what a wonderful experienced. I like to go on a cruise, I hope we can do it this year.

  22. This looks like a great ship! The rooms look like they are a fair size – very fitting for a family.

  23. I’ve never been on a cruise before. That room is lovely and I would love to see the ocean from where I sleep. But I’ll take note of the interior cabin in case we book someday and have a strict budget.

  24. Christina says:

    This is a really nice room. I would enjoy the little coffee and tea setup because that’s how I like to start and end each day.

  25. Rebecca Swenor says:

    This sounds like it was an amazing experience on this cruise in a Fathom Adonia Oceanview Stateroom for sure. I have never been on a cruise before and would love to try it one day. This room looks amazing with a great view and it would make or an unforgettable experience indeed. Thanks for sharing your experience and the tour.

  26. Going on a cruise is something that we want to do when the kids are a bit older. Thank you for thise detailed post about this speicific cruise journey.

  27. Nicole Escat says:

    Wow, nice room. I want to explore the world in a cruise, I hope I can save funds for it,

  28. Elizabeth O. says:

    Glad you enjoyed the cruise! The rooms looks really awesome and it’s great to know that the amenities are pretty much complete. It’s great to have a cruise that gives you a wonderful time and experience especially while you’re on the ship!

  29. Courtney Gillard says:

    I remember when we go on a cruise. It is a really nice and romantic experienced for me. I like this room.

  30. What a pretty room! Cruise ship bedrooms always amaze me because they’re all so different but fit so much in a small space! Hope you enjoyed!

  31. victoria says:

    Looks like a nice room. I would love to go there

  32. I have never been on a cruise mainly because of how acute my travel sickness is but it is great that they have plenty of storage.

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I wore Sea Bands on my first couple cruises and had no problems. If you decide to try a cruise, I highly recommend them.

  33. Not anytime soon , though your post makes it very tempting to go along with one with Fathom Travel. I like what I’m seeing, it looks and feels comfy enough!

  34. CourtneyLynne says:

    I keep hearing about fathom & how awesome there cruises are. Sounds like this ship has pretty sweet rooms!

  35. Ohhh I would love to take that cruise ship and experience it. The room looks complete and comfortable.

  36. I have never been in to a cruise so far, but it is a long time dream which I hope will come true sooner. The stateroom looks nice & convenient for you and I am sure you had a wonderful experience!

    • Dawn McAlexander says:

      I did have a wonderful experience. Thank you! I hope that you are able to go on a cruise very soon!

  37. I haven’t been on a cruise .. as in never! Your room is so clean and beautiful and very much like a posh hotel.

  38. Kathy Kenny Ngo says:

    Cruising is fun. I remember my first ever cruise and that was unforgettable. I am planning to cruise again!
