we had a veranadah cabin 4044, very small. the couch pulled out to a bed, but then you couldn't open the balcony door or refrigerator. Bathroom light never went off, small closets, not enought drawers for 3 people.  Read entire member review.
Small - no place for my wife's junk.  Read entire member review.
Panama Canal Cruise by carolpardun

I thought the room was fine. My only complaint would be that it is close to the elevators, which we could hear. If this bothers you, pick another room. It didn't both me, but I did hear the ding, ding of the elevator's arrival. It is also aft, which is more unstable. We had LOTS of waves, so if you're worried pick a more mid-ship location. I liked being in the back, though, because I got more walking in that way (walking to the front for the gym, for example). The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of room. The balcony was very nice with plenty of room for two people. We had people on both sides of us, but hardly ever heard them.

our cabin VD4140 has a verandah deeper than the usual V cabins. It was exteremely well located, behind the aft elevators, no noise at all from elevators or DR below us.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was small but that's not where we spent most of our time so it's not important. There was plenty of closet and drawer space to unpack and store our luggage. In room fridge, safe, blow dryer and lighted makeup mirror!!! All the comforts of home! Loved the Verandah! TV was small and not positioned for watching comfort. Overall was fine.

We liked the larger balcony and the convenience to the elevators. The towels are nice, as well as the bathrobes. We heard some banging every once in a while that we couldn't figure out where it was coming from, but it was quiet most of the time. We liked the towel animals and chocolates each evening, and we got ice twice each day. We really liked the DVD player and free Ship Flicks movies. They will also shine your shoes for free if you put them in a basket with your room number. The room seemed a little small, but it seemed to have plenty of storage space. There are shelves in the closet that can be put up or down to accommodate different clothing. Overall, we were very pleased with the room.  Read entire member review.
Zuiderdam good! by jlocole

Located on port side, very far aft. Chose this room for the large veranda. I would have enjoyed the big veranda more on a hot weather cruise. It is a double size balcony, with a long lounge chair, two other chairs, an ottoman and a small table.

Great cabin - pretty far forward on deck 6 but we never felt any seasickness. Beds were comfortable and although the cabin was cramped, it was adequate. This cabin was absolutely quiet - there was never any noise from the hallway or from above, below, or to the sides. Great location!

VB 6049 Handicap accessible cabin with balcony. Cabin is a nice size, twin beds can be converted to a double, only 1 chair inside, adequate closet and storage with a safe. Balcony has 2 wicker chairs with footstool the rail is wood with plexiglass underneath for clear viewing. Balcony faces starboard and to the rear of the ship at a diagonal. The cabin is located closer to the front of the ship.  Read entire member review.

Average Ship by kahuna6009
Average room. Not enough drawer space. Good balcony. Nice bathroom with tub.  Read entire member review.
Loved the location -- close to stairs/elevator, but no noise. Being on deck 6 was great -- only 3 decks up or down to most places we wanted to go. Cabin was a tad shabby -- but nothing that took away from the experience.  Read entire member review.

Excellent mid-ships cabin. Fantastic cabin stewards.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was on deck 8 (8028)with a veranda. We had a tub and a great shower. There was small spaces for personal items. Under the bed however were drawers to also space for suitcases. We also had a flat screen TV with good reception. The lights were a challenge. Overall the cabin was equal to others we had been. "The noise level was very low from the hallway.  Read entire member review.
Nice Handicap-Accessible Cabin. It was difficult to get the electric scooter over the threshhold, which had come a bit loose, but the ship's crew fixed it immediately. The pipes in the overhead of the balcony could use some cleaning as the wrap on them shows algae growth, but this really was a great cabin for our needs.  Read entire member review.
Samantha Brown Made Us Go by Cruising Boomer
We loved our cabin on Deck 4 - Upper Promenade. Without knowing it when booking, we discovered that the balcony was a little bigger than the decks above. For some reason, the balconies on this deck extend about 2 feet out from the decks above. Although that does not sound like much, it gave us more room for the two chairs, ottoman, and small table.  Read entire member review.
Holland America Review by kpcruiseman

The cabin was very nice. We had 2 four-person cabins which had a pullman bed and a sofa bed. The size was small, but we fit 4 people comfortably. Even having only one bathroom between us wasn't a big deal. Our group was fairly flexible and got along well, and just staggered when people got ready. I would definitely be comfortable going 4 in one room in the future despite many warnings online about it being too cramped. Definitely would take one verandah balcony room instead of 2 inner rooms.

Alaska - Cruise Virgins! by Ian Henderson
Great cabin - excellent storage space.  Read entire member review.
Super size and very comfortable. The full ocean view balcony is absolutely a MUST! Pay extra - worth every penny.  Read entire member review.
Can't remember the cabin number, but it was adequate. I would definitely choose a balcony for an Alaskan cruise.  Read entire member review.
Plenty of room in cabin, for sitting as well as storage. full bathtub and shower was excellent, no banging your elbows in this stateroom. The balcony was big enough for 4 people, only downside was being right next to the lifeboats, so view forward was obstructed, but this didn't impact too much. We liked being in the rear section midship - close enough to the elevators and stairs for a quick run up to the Lido restaurant or to head down to the Main Dining Room.  Read entire member review.
