We were on the Rotterdam Deck ( 7Th ) The cabin was beside the elevator which we had doubts about but was actually a bonus for ease of getting from deck to deck.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 4162 was a really good cabin. Located towards the stern on the port side. It was a quiet location, but there was a connecting door. We had very quiet neighbours, but a connecting door can give rise to more noise if you are not so lucky. There was a stewards work area opposite, but did not matter. We were very close to the aft elevators which brought you out to the Lido buffet entrance and just down the stairs to the dining rooms. It was a long way to go forward to the lounges and shops, but good exercise. Everything in our cabin was in good working order, and good condition. The bathroom was good, with one wall shaving cabinet a bonus for keeping things tidy. I don't like showers over the bath though, as the shower curtain is a nuisance. The water could have been a bit hotter at maximum temperature. There were lovely shower gels and shampoo etc in dispensers in the shower. Our veranda space was plenty big enough and we were mostly tied up to face the port view, so plenty to see. I would re book this cabin, no problem.  Read entire member review.
We had a Verandah, which had a balcony. It was a little small for 4 people, but next time we will book a bigger room. Everything was in excellent shape, except some of the cabinet doors were a little loose. The balcony was great, although the rooms on the even side of the ships usually have better views at ports. Our stewards were excellent, as was all service. The room was always clean, and there was almost no wear and tear. I couldn't be happier with the room.  Read entire member review.
The cabin was just as described on paper and in the picture. It was not too close to anything that would cause a disturbance. The view was very nice. I liked that no one could see you from the cabin above.  Read entire member review.
We had a VC balcony cabin, there were four of us staying in it. It was crowed with four, three would of fit nicely. The couch became a single bed and there was a pull down over the queen bed. This made it impossible to sit in bed and watch TV. The veranda chairs were very comfortable and the bed was the most comfortable I have been on so far. There is lots of closet space and enough space under the queen bed for four large suitcases.  Read entire member review.

Our interior suite was rather noisy for our daughters. The veranda suite was fantastic! Of course it was a bit small, but the compartments for storage was very organized and well laid out.  Read entire member review.
Good, better, best by antonio bella donna
Fine, fine fine. Nothing to quibble about.  Read entire member review.
Cabin: We thoroughly enjoyed our verandah for 5142. The cabin proper somehow smaller than I remembered but it was in fact very comfortable with more than enough room. Our room stewards, Danang and Gede, were great. They were unfailingly cheerful and efficient, We loved going out on the balcony with its clear plexiglass, comfortable chairs and table/footrest. The cabin had a great location, we thought, because It was close to the dining room, yet not a long way to anywhere on the ship.  Read entire member review.
Great location. Far enough away from the elevators for quiet. Great view from the balcony (no lifeboats).  Read entire member review.
Like so many cabins on cruise ships there were not enough hangers in the closet. The temperature control was either cool or warm, no matter how you adjusted the control. Other than that it was fine.  Read entire member review.
5180 - I knew that this balcony stateroom was very far aft, but I accepted it as an upgrade.  I have been forward on a previous Transatlantic and loved it and was quite far aft for an Alaska cruise which was good.  We did notice the motion more and made good use of the meclazine from the Front Office.  We were never stopped from doing anything due to the slight seasickness but I would choose my cabin further forward in the future.

There is only a shower here, but we preferred this as we never bath anyway and a shower is easier to negotiate.  The room was very quiet - at the end of a corridor, with only a stairway across the way (never used by anyone.).  Read entire member review.

Great view, not noisy, a little congested near front door, plenty of space for storage/clothing, good-sized bathroom with tub, comfortable beds, very clean, wonderful verandah views!

Great bathroom, need bigger table in room for room service or on balcony. Need more hangers and more counter space. Also .... we should be able to book shore excursions and check account on tv,  Read entire member review.
The Voyage of the Good Nuts by DillonCruisers
Perfect room except: access to the closets! Inadequate lighting combined with a very narrow hallway, and doors that open towards each other make access for even a slight person almost impossible. What do the 300 pounders do? Location top deck back of ship = longer balcony, great proximity to pool and lido, and top deck for sunning and reading. Potential negatives would be noice from setting deck chairs in the morning for late sleepers. Would book this room again for sure!  Read entire member review.
Cabin was good. Spacious with loads of storage. Youngest daughter slept of sofa bed which was very comfortable. Small issue with noise at night outside cabin as it is quite close to the elevators and to the service area. Someone regularly vacuumed at 8am every morning which might upset some people but was not really that much of a problem for us. Good central/Aft position on ship.  Read entire member review.
No problem with cabin except would prefer a sliding door to balcony. Very quiet, fairly spacious, comfy bed.  Read entire member review.
