I was on the main deck, 1011, had an outside cabin or I guess they call them oceanview. I had one of the small windows but had a windowseat. I enjoyed it. I liked being closer to the ocean as I could watch the dock workers, but guess what? The dock workers could see me!! They wave!! One must remember to shut the curtains in port if one is going into the shower............  Read entire member review.

Cabin was fine with plenty of storage. We had an oceanview room on the main deck, mid-ship. The bed was wonderful with very soft sheets and fabulous pillows. It was quiet.  Read entire member review.

Classy, large, have a bath tub, good pillow and mattress. The AC is a bit noisy, the fridge won't open when the futon is opened, exterior door is corroded by salt. 20" LCD has HDMI input for laptop. Overall sufficient for 3 people.

Room definitely need some serious cleaning and refurbishment as the attendants only have limited amount of time to prepare the room since the last guests.

The room was fine, Cabin 4100 H category ocean view obstructed, odd shaped room with too many chairs in it so not much floor space, the bathroom was bigger than usual with a tub/shower. Only place to put clothes were the closet. It was close to dining room which was nice, The room was quiet

Cabin 4141
Average size cabin. Loads of storage;the most we have encountered on any cruise ship. The sofa was soiled so much we wouldn't sit on it. Mildew in shower. Little water pressure in shower. Water came out of faucet scolding. Carpet needed to be replaced. veranda needed cleaning. Glass on veranda extremely dirty. Rubber stripping hanging off the bathroom door. All in all, an average cabin at best.

We had a balcony room which was pretty standard when compared to other ships, my only complaint is that the fold down bed from the ceiling was over my bed instead of the couch. So every time you wake up, you have to remember to not sit straight up in bed or you would bang your head on the bunk above. Also the bed was closer to the door instead of the balcony, so when the couch was made into a bed by the balcony door, it made it very difficult to go on the balcony. Everything in the room worked great, A/C, water/shower etc… Room attendant was very good and responded to requests very well.

Alaska Inside Passage by kickboxrca
Standard balcony cabin - location was too close to the bow - a long walk to the closest elevators and stairways, but a great view when entering the glacier areas.  Read entire member review.
5037

Room: We stayed in 5037 which is a verandah stateroom. I found it to be of average size for a cruise ship - nothing great, nothing terrible. The bathroom having a tub was nice because the shower is probably a little bigger than your average cruise ship shower - so no shower curtain trying to stick to your body. Our cabin steward was fantastic and always had our room in top shape.

Panama Canal Sunfarer by coappleby1

We were on deck 6. It was a large cabin with a king bed, a large couch, table and two chairs and a large veranda. It was very comfortable and we enjoyed our accomadations while on the cruise.

one of the nicest we have ever stayed in the only reason i didnt give it a 5+ was some minor issues ie. slightly moldy shower curtain and some rust on the bathroom door molding  Read entire member review.

Great cruise by illuminated2010

Nice room with balcony.
Shower tub combo, so great for the kid to soak.
Comfortable bed and pull out sofa bed for the kid.
Sound proof, could not hear any noise from neighbors.

Room 7018 had very depressing decor - very dark place with poor air conditioning (barely kept us cool in December in the Caribbean).  Read entire member review.
7034
The bed was very comfortable. We had heard that light coming through the cracks of the door and the peep hole had been a problem. there is a pull drape that allows you to cover that -- the room is quite dark. We had no problems with the drapes at the verandah. It was a comfortable room however the cocktail table should be raised or lowered however this was broken during our stay. It was never repaired. Bathroom: There is a tub. This made the shower area more expansive than other stall showers on other ships. This is a definite plus. Furniture: Has a dated look. There is a lighted makeup mirror at the vanity/desk. ASK FOR THE FRUIT BOWL. This is a standard feature, but missing from our stateroom until we requested it.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was good, clean, bed comfortable, bathroom good, shower good, toiletries provided. Décor was bland. Cabin service excellent, and we tipped our stewards. Lovely to have a verandah, but a bit cool to spend time on it, but it gave GREAT view of glaciers in Glacier Bay.

8118
Cabin 8118 Not bad, small but comfortable. A few marks on the walls and the refrigerator was almost useless as it was full of mini bar beverages and wasn't cold. Asked and had the contents removed so I could put my own stuff inside but drinks were never cold. Just use the ice provided. Occasional unknown banging on the closet wall from something in the mechanical room next door. Noise was never identified or corrected.  Read entire member review.

First Time On HAL by GotDrums
Beware of inside room J1060 its right under the Northern lights night club. Lucky most of the folks go to bed early on HAL. The room itself was very spacious and had a great wraparound couch in the corner.  Read entire member review.

Superior verandah suite - good size with relatively large balcony area, but decor unattractive and furniture beginning to look dated and in need of up-dating. Reasonable shower and spa-type bath.  Read entire member review.

HALfirst timer by clampo

The cabin was a reasonable size with comfortable beds. Cabin steward as always very attentive and as I am a light sleeper I was thankful that there was noise from other cabins or the outside corridor.

LOVED IT! by Iamcookiea

For the balcony, no problems with flushing. AC was really working . We had to turn it down as it was too cold for us. We did not leave any instructions to the cabin attendants. So we were pleasantly surprised that they folded the sofa bed and took it out each day (except for 1 day when we were in Juneau). As one reviewer pointed out, it’s quite hard to go to the balcony when the sofa bed is out as there really is no more room. So we appreciated this gesture from our cabin attendants and left extra tips for them.

If you want a verandah, I would make sure it was on level 6 and not 5. We didn't know better and there was a lifeboat right off our verandah. You might have had a more straight down view from 6 than we did from 5. If we looked down from our verandah, all we saw was lifeboat.
