Spectacular! by Cruise or Bust!

Spacious with well appointed bathroom that features a Jacuzzi-style tub which is a nice feature when visiting a chillier destination such as Antarctica. Larger television screens would be a nice touch but then again, who stays in there? Video library and video players in each room are a great feature on these ships; never stuck with nothing to watch if wanting quiet time in the room.

Would not use HAL again by kirsten Somerset

Our Verandah stateroom was clean but dated. The bathroom was very poor. Having paid top money we did not expect a chipped bath, painted tile grouting which was peeling off and black mold in places. I have the photos. I found a small bottle of mouthwash and a hair grip in the bathroom cupboard.The door frame had been hastily repainted and the other side had no paint on at all. The verandah furniture had been badly repainted too.It was tatty. HAL proclaim they are saving the planet but having a spa bath is very wasteful and not hygienic. Climbing into a bath to have a shower is so last century and dangerous to the elderly in rough weather.

Oh that Zany Zaandam by Golfer-at-sea
The cabin was reasonable and I gather the bathroom large in comparison to some stories that I've heard from cruising friends. The center portion of decks 5 and 6 (and maybe 7 but I didn't go up there) were taken up by equipment. I don't know if it was the engine or generator room but the cabin was fairly noisy especially during night time. One would probably get used to it, i did, but the noise was there all the time and could be annoying to a light sleeper. The balcony was a great place to hang out during the day, quite sheltered from the wind or maybe because we were on the lee side most of the time.  Read entire member review.

The Neptune suite was worn and a bit dated, but it was clean and comfortable. The free laundry is the thing about it that really made it awesome. Clean clothes everyday is the nicest feature I have ever seen on a cruise.

huge balcony on deluxe veranda suite, plenty of storage, dressing area was a little congested.  Read entire member review.
Plenty of space for two adults and one 13 year old. Tons of storage space - more than we needed. Suitcases fit under the bed. Not noisy at all. Loved having a balcony.  Read entire member review.

Comfortable room with separate sitting area, balcony and bath.

For the price of this suite, I would expect more room, more closet space, and a bigger bathroom with usable tub. Since I was traveling solo but usually this suite would be used by two people, I don't know how they would do it. You literally had to walk around the bed and the table in front of the couch to get anywhere. There was barely enough room on the single sink bathroom counter to put my toiletries, and only no proper vanity. The "flat screen" TV was miniature. The "jetted" bathtub was a joke, and yes, I do use the tub. It looked like a child's tub. As always, the lighting was extremely confusing.  Read entire member review.
