Nice Fjords Cruise by HappySnaps
3074 was a very nice stateroom. It is a great mid-ship location on deck 3 and was comfortable even in heavy seas. The room was very quiet - no engine noise at all. There were times when I couldn't tell if we were moving or docked. The room has plenty of closet and drawer space and even small cabinets at the vanity that are perfect for little items. There is a safe in the room. It was convenient to walk up one flight for the restaurant, or down one flight for disembarkation at various ports. Did not need to rely on elevators!  Read entire member review.

My cabin and cabin steward were satisfactory. The large window was very enjoyable.

We chose an oceanview cabin very far forward on deck 4, and we were happy with our choice. The Pacifica theater, a stairwell, and a deck not much traveled surrounded us on three sides, so noise during sleeping hours was minimal. With a white noise app playing on our phones, we were never disturbed by any noises during the night. It's also on a hallway with several handicap-accessible rooms, so I think it's unlikely ever to be much of a party area. While we were sailing there was a large extended family celebrating their grandmother's birthday staying on the same hall and other than the occasional excited kid, there wasn't much noise at all. We were also only one deck from our dining room on deck five, and just a few steps from the forward elevators and stairs, which made traveling around the ship easy.

The main downside was that most activities, breakfast, and lunch, along with most of the convenient drink sources including all the self-service water and juice stations, were on deck 11 and all the way aft, which meant quite a trek for water or snacks, and was probably a contributing factor to our decision to skip so many activities at the last minute. We're young and healthy, so this wasn't much of an inconvenience, but were I planning another cruise with my family aboard, I don't think this would have been a very good stateroom location for, say, my grandmother. I wear a fitbit and on most days and without specially trying, I got somewhere between 40-65 flights of stairs and around 3.5 miles of walking (I don't like elevators when I can avoid them).

The cabin itself was more than big enough for the two of us, and though the shower is small, the water pressure was great. There was ample storage for five days worth of clothes for each of us even though I massively overpacked, and our unfolded suitcase fit under the bed. Our only complaint was that the bed was not at all comfortable. I like a firm mattress but it was approaching concrete. It's fortunate we find the rocking of the ship lulling because the bed itself was not making any contributions to sleepiness!

Great time! by linnibelle
Cabin was adequate with a large window. Shower was small. Heard noise of people walking on deck above us.  Read entire member review.

The room was noisy very early in the morning around 3 am. It sounded like someone was moving furniture most nights.

Final Family Cruise by Photofinish4
We had no complaints about our room. Mom was in a wheel chair and the location of the cabin was very convenient  Read entire member review.
Very quiet room. No movement felt during entire cruise. Cleaning needed more attention. Bathroom tired and old Toilet did not work properly. Bedding torn and not replaced until requested. TV old and bulky and tv choices very poor.  Read entire member review.
Beautiful ship and ports by vanvleckeren
The cabin was reasonably nice. Ship cabins are small unless you pay a lot, and I have other priorities. Cabin is not that important to me, but this one was clean and well located. It also had a balcony, which was very nice.  Read entire member review.
