The stateroom was in good order and all facilities were in full working order. A good location close to the front elevators, though the elevator chimes did get a bit annoying, but we're not intrusive. There is a clear view fore and aft from the veranda, it is equipped with two wicker chairs, a footstool and small circular table.

Cabin v quite - no complaints

Our stateroom was at the prow of the ship, starboard.It was quite far from the Lido and Vista Dining rooms, being the very last cabin in the corridor. Its position meant we experienced some movement when the sea was moderately rough.It was designed for disabled people, the doors were wider and the cabin was spacious enough for me to drive my scooter right in, around the end of the beds to park it by the veranda doors.There was a supporting pillar by the door, which was easy to negotiate. The bathroom had a shower only, like a wet room, with a stool attached to the wall. This room was in need of refurbishment, as the cover on the stool was split and the shower curtain was needing replaced.My first reaction was disappointment generally, as the decor was very tired looking and quite old fashioned with flowery comforters, patterned carpets and unattractive drapes. Nothing seemed to match, but I soon warmed to the room, as the storage was great, with lots of wardrobe space and two deep drawers under the beds. Our big cases could be stored under the beds too.There was a desk with good lighting and a useful mirror, the television was above, not really suitable for viewing from the beds.There was a couch/sofa bed for extra guests, but it was quite tatty and uncomfortable and frankly, I do not know how two extra people could share the space. The veranda was accessible for a wheelchair, but wasn't very big, with two chairs, a footstool and a tiny table. It was not overlooked from above or next door.We had to wedge the little table in the door to keep it open, this seemed to create a high-pitched whistle when it was windy. One stormy night the whole corridor was as if it was full of howling banshees. The air conditioner was ferocious with two outlets on the ceiling above the bed, pumping cold air.It was impossible to switch off and difficult to regulate.But, the room was scrupulously clean, kept so by our attentive stewards, who were always cheerful and chatty. The bed was comfortable, but the bedding was in need of replacement, the one blanket was thin and was not warm enough to counteract the power of the AC. The towels, similarly were greyish white and quite hard, though they were replaced twice a day.

Good location in that it is away from noisy public areas, but it is across from crew service space, and crew area doors are active early. Near forward elevator. Poor layout in room, in that the desk is jammed in a corner with TV/DVD player, outlets, mirror. Closet space is ok, but not abundant. Space below bed includes drawers. With care, the space can be used well. Can't hear most announcements in cabin. That is good for avoiding hearing the annoying Cruise Director but a problem for important stuff. It is broadcast on TV, but we seldom watched the TV. Bath has tub. Beds are just barely ok. Drop down bed is too close (too low) to other bed. Tight fit in room with sofabed and drop down bed. Chair has to be moved, then it blocks the cabin door or it blocks the path from bed to bath. Air conditioning is ok but fan can't be stopped. Balcony is ok, with good view and reasonable privacy. View from balcony is not obstructed. Balcony door has privacy glass. Smokers next door limited our use. Crew comes through balconies in port, so be sure to lock the balcony door!  Read entire member review.
Cabin 6039 was near the forward bank of elevators, but it wasn't noisy or a bad location. However, note that Vista dining room is far aft, the cabin is far forward. This makes for alot of walking from one end of the ship to the other, every time you want to go to the dining room. Note the balcony in this cabin: has the 1/2 glass partition looking out at sea, so when you are sitting down on the balcony, you can see through the glass. Some other balconies have a wood or other type partition that you can't see through.  Read entire member review.
Solo traveler so plenty of room. Good location for dining, long walks for other ship venues. Lovely veranda. Behind aft elevators but no noise. Very comfortable beds. I used the space inside the round desk chair to store the larger bottles from the fridge. That made room in the fridge for my wine and some snacks from the Lido. The lighting at the desk was not very good for drying hair - one vertical light to one side facing me and the rest behind me - but the outlet in the bathroom couldn't run the hair dryer so I made the best of it. I figured out how to work the DVD player (they should have provided instructions though). We had the door opened between our verandas and it made a nice long "porch".  Read entire member review.

DAM fine cruise by FlyfisherUK
6171 aft location, nice and quiet . Decent size but only shower no bath. Cabin size is decent, plenty of clothes hanging and storage space. Good bed and very comfy . Nice robes but no slippers , which is a bit penny pinching. Good soap ,gels etc and towels changed daily by excellent cabin stewards. Aircon fairly quiet, although bed could perhaps have done with a lightweight duvet. Balcony had 2 chairs , footstool and small table, glass/perspex screens and overhang did not restrict sun too much . Cabin location gives decent access to pool/lido . Being on deck 6 you get great views .  Read entire member review.
Room was spacious with a king size bed and full sofa. Bathrooms included a bath tub and a separate shower. Patio was quit large with a table and chairs and two separate lounge chairs. We were on the starboard size mid-ship. We were close to the elevators and stair way. Noise was not a problem.  Read entire member review.
Tiny rooms with poor layout compared to the Norwegian cruise line for similar room category. Few drawers. Mismatched balcony furniture. Beds face rear of ship versus front of ship a bad choice during rough high seas. Poor lighting in the bathroom and room.  Read entire member review.
Pack Your Patience by Annalise
Our windowed cabin was extremly tiny with very little storage. We were on deck 1 which experienced very little rocking. The location was very quiet & we were not far from Vista dining room above us. We had two twin beds pushed together, a small desk, a mini fridge, a small sofa and three single door closets. The two nightstand drawers were extremely hard to open. The shower had good water pressure & easy to control temperature. Since we did not spend a lot of time there, it was okay, however, next time I would definately opt for a larger room.  Read entire member review.
