This was our first ocean view (normally we have had a balcony), and it was fine. It was amazing what we saw out of our window-- great scenery, whales by the dozen, and seals. Our location was convenient to the elevators yet very quiet. Our only real complaint was the plumbing that made the bathroom unusable for a couple of days. We adapted, but Holland needs to do a better job a addressing eh issue with us as passengers. Read entire member review.
Our cabins were quite roomy with plenty of storage. The bathroom was larger than some of the other ships we have been on. It was quiet where we were since there were no rooms across the hall.

Any cabin on the main deck is under the promenade deck so that there are people walking over at all times of the day and night. The crew clean the promenade deck around 0430 so if you are a light sleeper you will be woken. There was no refrigerator in the cabin but the cabin steward brought a wine cooler bucket for our white wine. Closet space was excellent, one of the best we have ever seen with plenty of hangers, which is rare. Read entire member review.
