Not our style by frober262

I'm certain that it was simply the layout; however, the cabin felt smaller than our previous cabins which were in virtually the same location on two other ships. The mirror over the bed does give the illusion that there is more space than really exists. The bathroom is well laid out, with storage under the vanity and there is a small cabinet beside sink. The shower/tub was good but I believe they are being changed to shower only during refit. Leave your soap, shampoo etc home the Elemis products that are supplied are wonderful and really work.

Our party had cabins 4175 and 4177. We liked being at the stern as it was very close to the rear elevators up to the Lido restaurant. We liked that the verandahs in this area are a little deeper than average. It was a very quiet location. Bathrooms had showers, no tubs. There is a lot of storage in the room, closets, and bathroom. Sofa and chair in sitting area.  Read entire member review.
Best time ever! by cwb348
Room 5015; starboard. Very quiet, lots of room to store suitcases under beds. Balcony was completely covered and had 2 comfortable chairs and ottoman. Tub and shower in bathroom with clothesline. Their hairdryer overheats easily - Bring your own!! Loved dvd player with complementary movies (never did get a chance to watch) The bow is opened on this floor when in Glacier Bay, so it was very convenient. Complementary shoeshine.  Read entire member review.
A Good Experiment. by crazygal65
Cabin was fairly roomy with tons of storage space. Nice size balcony with good chairs with table and foot stool. Very quiet and not to long a walk to the elevators.  Read entire member review.

Nice cabin good view from the balcony, passage is quiet as nearly at the end

Our cabin had more storage than I remember in the past. 3 closet doors (one was just shelves where the safe was), space under the sink, 2 drawers in each of the night stands, a large drawer under each bed and 2 large drawers under the sofa. We had no problems with plumbing or air conditioning. Still can't figure out which switch turns on which lights... we never did figure out how to turn the light on next to the mirror. Our DVD was broken, no big deal, we were just going to look at some pictures we purchased. Only 2 plugs at the small desk to charge cameras, phones and computers. We really enjoyed the balcony views of the ports as we approached and departed.  Read entire member review.
Excellent location forward, so very quiet (not many walking by.) Would choose it again.  Read entire member review.
Poor layout made this small balcony cabin seem even smaller than it is. The closet configuration is odd at best. The shelving lifts up but in then ruins the hanging closet part -- a passenger can't have a dress or longer jacket hanging without getting crushed by the shelf. Without the shelf in place, there is only one shelf in the closet. Bathroom is adequate, except for storage. Most of the bathroom storage is on the one under shelf  Read entire member review.

Spacious, very comfortable bed, great view from balcony, plenty of storage space, good bathroom facilities, quiet even though very accessible to elevators.  Read entire member review.
Our stateroom was on port (left) side deck 5, Verandah deck. Verandah Cabin 5142. The official website boost largest cabins in the industry but I did not find this to be true. It seems to me to be the same size cabin as those on Princess and Carnival. The bathroom, however, was very large with a bath tub. This may have taken additional space and thereby made the cabin seem smaller or similar size to other cruise lines. The balcony, however, was larger than Princess Cruises. There are VERY few outlets. I highly recommend bringing and surge protector for additional outlets. Our cabin was close to the aft elevators and we found it to be quiet. Great balcony view!  Read entire member review.
5144 - our verandah cabin was portside and aft near the stairs and elevators. We were not disturbed by noise in the area and had easy access to other floors. However, mid-ship is better to access all activities. Although we were across from the room steward's closet, we were never disturbed.  Read entire member review.
Closets in cabin lacked drawers for storage. Lots of hanging space. Would have liked a larger flat screen TV in the cabin.  Read entire member review.
Great Friends and Great Cruise by nagsheadbeachbum
VC5149 was a great cabin. It was near the aft elevators, which were convenient to the Vista Dining Room and Lido deck. A good walk to the theater and casino area, but we needed the exercise.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 5178. Has shower which is small but serviceable, had a very long vanity which made storing our essentials a snap. There are three closets, two have bars for hanging clothes. Other closet has shelves and houses the safe. A small night stand with 2 small drawers on either side of the bed. Two large drawers, one under each side of the bed gave plenty of storage. Beds were high enough to store suitcases under.

Zuiderdam? Keep Shopping by TravelMonique
Cabin 6050 - location is great. No noise. The sofa bed is stained, worn and a little disgusting. It didn't work properly. Once you got it out, it wasn't going back in. Also, it was very uncomfortable but after speaking with the pursers desk they informed us the room stewards had foam mattresses to put on top. That improved it a lot for sleeping purposes, but now it really wasn't going back into it's box. We spent the cruise with our sofa sitting 12 inches higher than it should of been. Everything else worked. Storage is pretty good.  Read entire member review.
