Cabin outstanding, great hanging and storage space, largest balcony we've ever had in 23 cruises.  Read entire member review.
small cabin, not enough closet or drawer space, shabby furniture, nice, but small Verandah  Read entire member review.
5054 - Nice cabin with big balcony. 110 outlets are few, but the bathroom is large and comfortable. This is an accessible room with easy access. We put two big bags under the bed and the closet was adequate. The few drawers are a bit restrictive. They have cabinets instead of drawers in a few places that make storage awkward. The TV is a little far from the bed and the handles on the balcony door are corroded and loose, but all is serviceable. Overall we liked the cabin and its proximity to elevators and the front of the ship. The slanted balcony was particularly good going through the Panama Canal with forward and aft views.  Read entire member review.
Cabin The cabin we paid for was an Outside Verandah. The bathroom had pubic hairs along with small soft brown items on the floor. Could not find the cabin steward and had to clean the bathroom ourselves. After three days we meet the cabin Steward, we had to resort to leaving notes if we had any issues. Towards the end of the cruise he made himself self apparent? No maps supplied in the cabin as the Ship was trying to peddle a book on Alaska with maps at just under $20 US. Information supplied usually through the TV was constantly 2 days old.  Read entire member review.
Small cabin, very small balcony, but private. Room is poorly laid out. No room to walk around when getting dressed. Too much furniture for such a small room.  Read entire member review.
We were in cabin 5061, a VF category. My sister was in cabin 5075, a VE category. There did not appear to be any difference at all. The cabin was located mid-ship, and was very quiet at all times. There was a small balcony with 2 chairs and a table.  Read entire member review.
perfect location...close to mid-ship bow to stern and top to bottom. Quiet, no visual obstruction. You do have the lifeboats directly beneath you so you can not technically look "down" to the water but we did not mind this at all. Either while seated or standing we were looking "out" to the sea anyway. Balcony had a light that allowed us to read our "Explorations" with a drink after the show. There is a curtain that can be drawn between the bed and the couch if one wanted to stay up and read. There were also reading lights on both sides of the bed. There was TONS of storage in our opinion...more than we have seen on other ships and the bathroom was more spacious than we have experienced on others ( not huge...but better than most)  Read entire member review.
5068 cabin is a standard balcony verandah. The cabin was fine, but I was missing the chair under the makeup table. There was a nice view, but it was just about a deck above the life boats. There was an unobstructed view however. All in all no complaints about the room.  Read entire member review.
Zail the Zuiderdam by syrupcity
Room okay. Balcony overlooks lifeboats. not a problem if you don't look down  Read entire member review.
We found our VF balcony cabin forward on the Upper Promenade level quite satisfactory although a bit cool at times. We learned that VF balconies on Holland America have solid steel plating below the hand rail so you can't see shore from inside the room and we may upgrade on our next cruise to do so. We had plenty of storage space even though we both brought formal clothes as well as many changes of everything else. The king size bed was very nice and the room was well decorated.  Read entire member review.
Great balcony, small cabin, not enough seating on open decks.  Read entire member review.
Good storage space. Very comfortable beds. Room temperature good.  Read entire member review.
A/C impossible to be turned off or at least reduce the vent power. Located right above our bed, we could feel the air blowing over our face the whole night long. Some sailing nights with rough sea we were several times awakened by the sound of creaking panels. We called maintenance and the put some wooden plugs in the angle between the wall and the ceiling  Read entire member review.
