Relaxing on the Westerdam by cruizn2escape
Lots of storage, larger balcony  Read entire member review.

The cabin has a very good layout with the sofa and table by the veranda door. The tub made the shower much bigger. Plenty of storage. The VD veranda is deeper and it had plenty of room. Two cushioned chairs rather than one would be nice. Our daughter used the sofa bed and found it comfortable. With it extended you could still get to the veranda even though it was a tight squeeze. We didn't feel much vibration from the engines except once.  Read entire member review.

Great cabin--one of 2 cabins on this ship with double balcony. Quiet.  Read entire member review.

Veranda Stateroom with balcony, suite 4177, was excellent, with the exception of the Air conditioning and mini-fridge problem mentioned previously. Three floor-to-ceiling storage closets with plenty of room to hang clothes, also has a full length mirror inside the door. Roomy bathroom with detachable shower hose, ample supply of soaps, conditioners, and lotions, and large cozy bath towels, hand towels and wash clothes. There is plenty of shelf and rack space, as well as a wall to wall mirror and medicine cabinet. Beautiful wall holders contain drinking glasses and glass soap dishes. The cabin contained either a king or queen bed, composed of two smaller beds (we could not feel the separation between the mattresses), and the bed was amazingly comfortable - not hard, but very supportive. Personal book reading lights are set in the mirrored headboard on both sides of the bed, and all light switches are right there in the head board, as well as inside the cabin door. The room included two bath robes, two-person couch, a small oval dining table and comfortable table's chair, mini-fridge supplied with liquor and water, a desk and stool, large mirrors, make-up magnifying mirror, TV, DVD player, a small food cabinet, hair dryer, two glasses and silver platter with ice bucket equipped with a water spigot which is refilled for you each day by staff. The balcony is exclusive and private with a glass balcony railing, equipped with two comfortable deck chairs and coffee table. There is enough room to include four people seated, five or six standing. This cabin is perfectly situated half way up the ship at the right rear - literally the last cabin facing starboard. My only real complaint is that there were only two wall outlets in the room (in other words, you can only plug in two things) and only one in the bathroom. When you need to charge your cell phones and portable devices, it can be frustrating (we had two cell phones, electric cigarette changer, portable DVD charger, and the portable fan they gave us to cool the room when the air conditioner failed.  Read entire member review.

Alaska June 11 - 18 by Rose Parade
Cabin 5001 Handicapped cabin. Extra large room for the same balcony rate. Large bathroom which the wheelchair could easily roll into. Tub with shower and separate shower area with seat. Many grab bars. One of our four forward facing cabins with a forward facing window which came in very handy at the Hubbard glacier. Cabin 5005. Very small interior cabin. Directly over the main showroom (which occupies decks 1 to 4.) All of the rehearsal music in the daytime and show music at night was very loud in this cabin. Cabin 5013. Balcony cabin. The only drawback was the ships thrusters were very loud when leaving posts.  Read entire member review.

Wonderful Cruise by Cheryl I
Nice closet size with fold down shelves. Plenty of storage and under the bed storage for 4 pieces of large luggage. Plenty of room for 2 people. The verandah outside our room had nice seating, they were private and roomy. Soft robes were provided and there was a lot of storage in the bathroom. The bathroom had a bathtub/shower. The location of our cabin was perfect. Never waited for an elevator. Loved being close to the Crow's Nest, one of our favorite places to read and relax.  Read entire member review.

Our cabin was starboard near the stern, but experienced no vibration and found the location quite handy. Bed was very large and comfortable and the large shower is a definite bonus on HAL ships. Missed the cushion on the faux wicker veranda chair, but the larger HAL balconies are welcome.

Drawer space is pretty tight.

Wonderful bathroom with a tub-shower. Great ventilation system that kept the cabin from getting humid after 2 people showered. Plenty of storage space. Glad there were only 2 of us in this cabin and not 3! Balcony was large enough.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was a standard verandah cabin on the Westerdam. Nice size with plenty of storage. The verandah was a little small.  Read entire member review.

Room was just fine -- enough room for 2 people. In addition to the bed, there was a sitting area with a small couch (sits 2 comfortably, 3 tightly) and a chair. Balcony can stand 4-5 very comfortably. Room is very close to the aft elevators, which was convenient -- take it up to Lido buffet or down to main dining room. Room was quiet. This is a great room on the Port side.

Loved the balcony, beds extremely comfortable, shower roomy! Good location, (close to elevators) deck 6, aft, starboard.  Read entire member review.

Great cabin, but being all the way forward meant a lot of pitching motion during rough seas. Also, the forward deck nearest this cabin is only for crewmembers, so don't book this cabin expecting to access that deck.

Spacious balcony, small LCD TV with DVD player, outrageous hairdryer, no fitting electrical sockets for new appliances in cabin and bathroom, good storage space, quiet location, old and falling-apart balcony furniture, small and worn-out bathroom,stained bathroom floor, nowhere to plug in a newer bulkier plug for hairdryer, peeling paint, this cabin needs a refurbishment soon. Old worn-out pillows, comfortable bed, cheapo blanket like from a bootcamp or roadside motel. Hallway quiet, not near elevators, crew space, disco.  Read entire member review.
