As noted before, this was not the best cabin. See my review for notes on the sleeping arrangements for four - problems with the upper coming down over the main bed, as well as trying to get to your balcony when the lower couch is made up. The other problem with this cabin was the balcony. For some reason, the splash back is tremendous. Our balcony looked like it had been sprayed down most of the time. We still used it a lot. It does have the plastic, not the metal, which is good. And there is plenty of room, but you have to deal with water! It is nice to have a full tub/shower combo which is easier to use than the really small showers you usually get, and the Elemis products are nice.  Read entire member review.

Nice mid ship as I easily become sea sick although I wear sea bands most of the time. Sometimes a little noisy as we were opposite room service galley. Most of the time, in port we were facing away from the port - a good thing in my opinion.  Read entire member review.

Located half way between the forward and mid-ship elevators. Good closet space, had fold down shelf if needed more space for long items to be hung. Balcony was too small, overlooked top of lifeboat #3 but didn't effect view. There was some sort of frame on the bed that made it difficult to store suitcases under bed.  Read entire member review.

Would love to have better lighting around the closet area - it's difficult to see inside the safe and even to see the colors of clothing.  Read entire member review.

Average size room for a balcony. Very close to the aft elevators so there was quick access to the Lido Deck. Quiet room. There is a bathtub in the room, this keeps water from sipping into the floor after taking a shower. Beds were COMFY! There were tanks below us and therefore not a clean view from our balcony, but it didnt bother me too much. The sofa(bed) is a nice touch but I cant imagine three in this room.

Noordam #5135 was at the end of the indented side of the Noordam toward the back next to a handicapped cabin. The verandah had an angled part that allowed you to look forward. That was one reason I wanted to keep this cabin even though we were offered upgrades. the location was quiet.  Read entire member review.

Cabin 5137 -- This cabin was a handicap cabin, hence, lots of room to move around; very nice. The balcony was on the starboard side and faced forward, again,very nice. The only negative was a shortage of closet and storage space.  Read entire member review.

Cabin was adequate, enough room for two, any more and it would be crowded. Bathroom was also adequate.  Read entire member review.

Wonderful Cruise by cabinluvn
Great location as far as access to the main dining room(elevator straight down to deck 2) and the Lido dining(2 stories up the stairs). Located just aft of the first verandah suite, it was more midship than aft. The only negative was that there was two maintenance closets across the hall. One of them was the ice machine and the steward started loading up his ice for the cabins between 6 and 6:30 in the morning. My husband never heard him and I did go back to sleep, so it wasn't a huge problem, but I think if I mentioned it to him, he would have delayed that job for awhile. Standard verandah room with plenty of closet space. Three closets. One with shelves and two with room for hanging clothes. The hanging closets had shelves that were folded down, but could be brought up for placing items on. Bathroom as shelf under the sink and a medicine cabinet. Tub/shower with built in shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser and a retractable clothesline  Read entire member review.

Our location was great, with the Spa above us. Overall the room was smaller than Carnival, another foot in width would allow for a different configuration of the furniture so you wouldn't be bumping into things. All in all there was enough space for clothing, luggage, etc.  Read entire member review.

Sleepless in Noordam by marinermari
THis is a VA category cabin, but it doesn't warrant this category as the noise from the Lido Deck outside seating area is VERY intrusive from 5.30am until well after the midnight buffet. Chairs and tables are scraped across the floor above and it sounds as if they are coming through the ceiling disturbing sleep late at night and first thing in the morning. Smoking in adjacent cabins was a BIG problem the corridor outside reeked and we couldn't sit on our verandah because of the smell.  Read entire member review.

HAL is overrated by alenushka
Cabin is nice for two, too small for three; great closet space; Deck 5 view from the balcony overviews the top of life boats.  Read entire member review.
None
The only complaint is we were surrounded by smokers and could not enjoy our balcony.  Read entire member review.
