Hello HAL by mevicar
Nice. Quiet. No hall traffic. Didn't like that my balcony stuck out a foot or two from the rooms above me. I was on deck 4. Others could look down if we were at the railing. Somebodies swimsuit fell and landed on my balcony and so did two bottle tops. Not the ship's fault. Most of the time no one was above us the same time we were. And if we were sitting it was no problem at all - although you are told - this room has a metal wall not Plexiglas. So if you are sitting you have to look over the railing.  Read entire member review.
4022 had a disappointing, concrete verandah and you couldn't see anything sitting down so it was nauseating.  Read entire member review.
Our incredibly quiet room (4032) was ready at around 1:30. (Our room picked up all the evening entertainment music but was otherwise dead quiet.) The room was a fairly standard size, also had a balcony (which was about three feet deeper than the verandas above). Unfortunately there appeared to be almost no drawer space. Four days into the voyage, we found two more good sized drawers, under the sofa! Too little, too late (for this cruise) but if you get a similar room, have a look. There were the basic three closets (adjustable shelving/hanger rod), two small bed size tables and a tiny storage area beside the mini bar. By the way, our shower was fantastic! The adjustable head was high enough for my six foot height. The pressure would make most hotels and new homes jealous. There was bottled water above the mini bar. However, no price list existed (so, was it free?). We called and had a price list delivered (it wasn't free). We met our room steward. He was a nice young man who had been on the ship about three months. I asked him if we could get some ice and in no time at all he was at the door with an ice bucket full (but no tongs). Later that evening, we called several times to have more ice delivered. It finally came after an hour and a half. Our room was cleaned up, when we had gone for dinner but there were still used glasses on the desk and garbage in the room basket. The next morning it was about five hours before the room was made up. We found that leaving the "Service" card in the lock expedited things. Also, the toilet started being temperamental. It, for most attempts, would not flush. We reported this but for the rest of the cruise, it was still acting up.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was located on Deck 8 near an entry to the bridge and below the Spa. We didn't experience any noise from the Spa and there was little if any noise in the passageway. Our bathroom was larger than on other ships and included a bathtub. There was ample storage in both the bathroom and cabin. The closet was quite large and additional storage was provided in drawers beneath the beds and couch. The verandah was larger than expected.  Read entire member review.

8014 and 8010 rooms that were advertised as larger than most were the smallest of any cruise we have been on. The view was the only saving grace with clear walls to view the scenery and whales.
