Our cabin was very quiet. It had an angled balcony, which besides being slightly larger, offered us a complete view of the whole side of ship. Our location was one stairwell and one floor from the dining hall.  Read entire member review.
This cabin is located forward and on the port or left side of the ship on the 4th deck. It is right off the elevators. Good storage, great location and nice balcony. Bathroom has a tub and good amount of storage as well. It does have a connecting door which can cause noise issues if you have noisy neighbors - so please consider this. It is a true 3 person cabin - the couch is not a full size couch - it opens to a twin bed and you cant get to the veranda when it is out.  Read entire member review.
Perfect location to stairs and elevator. Good amount of closet space for a tiny room. Great Balcony.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 4051 should NOT be sold as a wheelchair accessible category VD cabin. Here are some reasons:
1-There was barely enough room for a travel-sized wheelchair to pass by the bottom of the bed.
2-It was extremely difficult for a wheelchair user to climb the ramp, cross the door jamb and go down the ramp onto the balcony, even with great assistance and the door held open. It was very dangerous to come down the ramp on the balcony side and need to immediately turn sharply to the left while on the ramp (or hit the railing).
3-The television is too small and too far away for a wheelchair user (unless the wheelchair is at an angle on the ramp toward the balcony).
4-There is insufficient space at the bathroom sink.
5-The lighting in the cabin was very poor.
6-There was no seating area in the cabin, as was described for VD cabins.

Cabin 1122, farthest port aft, under dining room, ceiling noise from moving furniture all night. Sleep compromised. Also engine and vibration noise. Cold water in shower which was eventually fixed. Cabin 4134, very nice, more spacious with verandah but hot water was lacking for the shower.  Read entire member review.
Good location, although it's near the aft elevators and there's considerable traffic and the elevator chimes can be heard. Might not be the best for those who insist on absolute quiet. Very short distance to the main dining room.  Read entire member review.
Good location, convenient to aft elevators; only noise we heard was the elevators "dinging" occaisionally;  Read entire member review.
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.
VD 4136 - aft port side with deeper balcony (about 2 extra feet). Nice location directly above the entrance to the dining room. Not above or below any public room. Near elevators, but was never noisy with people coming and going. Only noticed noise on the last evening when porters were bringing luggage to the lobby. Port side is great for private viewing of ports when coming in on the Eastern Caribbean itinerary.  Read entire member review.
Large veranda, comfortable bed, loved the tub/shower combo. Little attention to detail by steward and maintenance staff.  Read entire member review.
