The Statendam room numbers do not correspond to the deck numbers. The room with a balcony was nice. The ship overall is well past its prime, and the room walls do creak and rattle (although quietly). In our room the latch to the balcony did not work well, but they did come in to adjust it without us asking several times, I think at the request of the room steward who put out the cushions each day and took them in each night. The room has a refrigerator, not stuffed too full, so we were able to add our own water bottles and some small cans of Coke Zero. We do not drink enough sodas to make a “soda plan” a good deal for us. The room has a nice long desk and couch with coffee table that does adjust up or down, and can actually be moved from side to side or forward and back. The beds (put together as one) were quite comfortable, with plenty of pillows. We did ask the room steward to please put a sheet on the bed. They initially had only a bottom sheet and the comforter, which was often too hot at night, especially since we were sailing the coast south to Peru. The room temperature seemed not to really be controlled. I think there is a main control, and it is often turned off at night or something. The TV and a VCR are in the room. Pretty old technology, and the screens are not too bright. I was able to go into the adjustments and brighten it up a bit. The selection was not a varied as on other ships, but okay. We are not big TV watchers.
The bathroom included a tub, and as others say, it is a big step over, but it was nice to have a tub, especially if I decided to wash out something like our beach shoes which were filled with sand. There are two small shelves and a holder with two glasses. I used the glasses as holders for toothbrushes and toothpaste as well as other small brushes, etc. There is a shelf under the sink that can hold larger bottles or extra things. The soap, shampoo and conditioner are mounted on the shower wall. Easy to use and good quality. The hairdryer is in a drawer near the mirror and plugs in on different voltage under the desk. Push it all the way in. Kind of hard for older people to take in and out, but we were okay, although most of the time I left it plugged in and stored under the desk.
There seem to be plenty of drawers since we used one of our suitcases opened up flat as two extra drawers under the bed. There are shelves in the closet on one end, but we had snorkel equipment to store, as well as extra supplies for this 31 day trip. Also some of the shelves are taken up by life jackets, robes, and an extra comforter. There is a safe, and 3 hanging closets about 2 feet wide each. We kept our backpacks and suitcases under the bed. They did fit. What to bring for this room is included in my main review.
133 was nicely located, but the A/C was not working very well. Though they checked us very day, they never go it over 77 degrees. But, the gave us a $350 credit for our putting up with it. Read entire member review.
Cabin 139 was great. Lots of storage, hangers and space. Safe was good. TV gave CNN , Fox news and about 5 movie channels. Shower great, tub jacuzzi broken. They would not put a chaise lounge on our balcony on deck 9 for " safety" reasons. But they were on balcony on 10 deck in same room??. Two chairs with cushions and small table were fine. Bring power bar and extension cord. Read entire member review.
Our Veranda cabin was terrific. It is comparable to mini suites on other ships. The closets and drawers were more than we needed with some remaining empty. The bathroom was a nice size with plenty of space for toiletries. I loved having the DVR in the cabin. The 3 different types of pillows were the greatest and the bed was very comfortable. I had no trouble sleeping. There was no cabin across from ours so it was quiet in the hallway. Read entire member review.
Before booking your room, check map of the ship and avoid Cabin 158 on deck 9 as well as it's corresponding cabin on the starboard side of the ship on ALL deck levels. DH is a professional licensed engineer and he stood outside all of these cabins. THEY ALL VIBRATE.....ALL THE TIME... Read entire member review.
