Cabin Rating
The cabin was typical size but the layout could have been better. You had to really work to get suitcases under the bed since it was really close to the wall. There was a bathtub - first time on a cruise ship. No other problems with the cabin. For drinkers there was NO BAR but some sodas and water were on the counter as well as fresh fruit daily.  Read entire member review.
Not a fan of HAL by Princess1048

The room was nice. Large bathroom with a deep tub, although it definitely needs updating, there were chipped tiles and the bathtub panel was loose and rattled. As we were above the crew quarters, there was unknown noises as early as 5 am waking us up, which was very annoying.

Plenty of closet space - comfortable cabin even for 3 people.  Read entire member review.

Quiet, comfortable room. Lots of storage for all of our clothes.
Glad we did interior cabin. Weather so bad no-one used the balcony. All of our time was in lounges and on deck.

Favorite Cruise so far by danabanana612

Cabins 2563, 2536,2564 nice location main deck, right by embarking for ports. close to elevators and stairs. Rooms were as described. Our room was a quad but only 2 of us in it. The other quad used the bunk and sofa, they still had plenty of room. Cabins 3991 and 3996 both handicap on lower promenade were under kitchen so a liitle more noisy but love the location as you can walk around corner to outside or elevators.

Good....but by Renovationking
Ver small comapred to the one we had on P&O. Others who had cruised a lot more than us said the same. Cabin showed it's age but was OK. Poor sealing of bath had been undertaken with lorry-loads of silicone. Could not cool the cabin enough. Everyone we spoke to had cabin temp at lowest to compensate for VERY hot temps in public areas of ship  Read entire member review.
Beautiful Alaska by Jenny72756

HALS oceanview cabin was more than I expected w/lots of room.  We had a large queen bed w/couch and chair, large storage spaces (even for our suitcases), and a large bathroom.  The room attendant was excellent refreshing our room twice a day.  Our room was at the back of the ship w/the walk around deck, but it was still quiet.  Though the windows were reflective you can see in w/a cabin light on, so close the curtains at night to keep from giving everyone a free show.

The WOW FACTOR by kelly3399

Looked just like the pictures on HAL website. No surprises. Quiet location on starboard side near elevators. Laundry just a short distance down hall. Bathtub a little small but makes for a large shower with adjustable shower head that would easily accommodate a tall person.Plenty of grab bars for safety and a medicine cabinet too. Balcony was nice size and great to relax on and view from.

6156 Verandah Deck
Tiny entry, plenty of storage, shower over small but adequate bath, sneaky but good large drawers in the end of beds, bathroom facilities (a three way mirror!) very good. The usual problem with little privacy from partially screened balconies - pray that you don't have party animals next to you. Quiet with no noise internally, especially since there are no interior rooms opposite.

Great balcony room

 Read entire member review.

Our portside Neptune Suite (previously Deluxe Veranda Suite) 7020 was directly across from the Neptune Lounge. We expected a noise issue with the Lido Deck directly above, but heard only an occasional chair scrapping while on the balcony. This suite is somewhere between the pool and pool bar above. Plenty of room to spread out and relax with generous storage areas to keep everything out of sight, but easy to find. The bathroom had one full-sized sink, a small whirlpool tub/shower combination, wall units, counter top and under-counter space. Adjoining the bathroom is a 6 inch step-down to the dressing area with vanity, mirror, more storage space and a small sink. A king bed, large angled sofa, coffee table, two chairs, small fridge, safe, bar, umbrella and binoculars completed the interior space. The gigantic balcony had a dining table, four chairs, two loungers, and a small drink table. 11 ft. wide and double the length of a balcony stateroom. We took of advantage of the complimentary laundry several times and received same day service before dinner.

The cabin was exceptionally spacious. We had brought two large suitcases, two "carryon" suitcases, and two backpacks, and all of that barely made a dent in two of the 4 available closets, much less any of the drawer space.

The balcony area alone is quite literally the size of an interior cabin.

The service was exceptional - our room stewards were friendly and available whenever we needed them.

We used the laundry/dry cleaning service daily, and it was always returned to us within hours, on the same day.

This room is located directly across from the Neptune Lounge. This is very convenient for a quick drink/snack while that lounge is open.

This was the first time I had selected an internal cabin, no problems with the layout or size, great bathroom, more than adequate and plenty of hanging space. Cabin included a safe which was good, I must point out that the cabin stewards did a great job, well presented at all times. If you are looking for a quiet cabin, this is the one for you. I would also point out that there are a number of self service laundry areas with ironing facilities on the ship which is a great advantage.

Decent size cabin. Plenty of closet space. Comfy bed. Inside windows were large and were hosed off/cleaned during cruise to get salt off so view was good for cruising the sounds. Room service timely and tasty and food temperature was good. Right in front of stairs but never noisy. Right under teak walking deck but we never heard feet.  Read entire member review.
Cabins on bottom two decks (oceanview and inside) do not have a refrigerator. You have to hire one!! Nowhere is this highlighted and it should be as who would expect a stateroom NOT to have a refrigerator in this day and age? Especially on a "recently refurbished" ship.  Read entire member review.
spacious, good storage, had the top bunk for the room of room. Bathrooms were good size. Nicer, cleaner and bigger than i expected.  Read entire member review.
The three of us shared standard outside room. My hide-a-bed was surprisingly comfortable. My parents bed was comfortable, neither of them complained about the room. It was always clean. Every night we enjoyed our towel pets and chocolates. Our cabin steward was a wonderful young man who was always nice and always asking if we want anything. The bathroom was clean and soaps & lotions were replenished every day. We were very happy with especially the cleanliness.  Read entire member review.
The standard veranda cabin size was very good (about 300 square feet). Unlike other ships we have been on, the sitting area was located by the balcony doors with the sleeping area inboard. This actually worked out very well, allowing you to sit on your sofa and enjoy the view out the floor-to-ceiling windows. The bathroom was spacious; and although we did not use the 3/4 size whirlpool tub, we enjoyed having the extra room in the shower. Too bad that the walls were stained and the TV remote never worked properly.  Read entire member review.
