BB111-we loved the storage, the extra space. Loved the fridge in the room. Get rid of the fountain. HVAC needs some work. Quiet location. Not too far from the laundry, elevators/stairs or the fitness center/spa. We wanted to be on the port side going around the Horn but truly it did not matter that much. As the straits had land on each side and during the most scenic times during the cruise we were in the restaurant or the Crows Nest. Our room was at a "dead end" so there was no traffic noise at all. Though our neighbors did get in a big fight one night, we were so tired and they calmed down pretty fast, we didn't lose any sleep. It was nice to have daylight in the room. For us it was a very special trip so we spent the extra money, but really the extra space was more important. Book early!  Read entire member review.
Nice cabin: good space, storage and pleasant verandah. Spoiled by "fridge" problem.  Read entire member review.

We had B123, which is a Vista Suite forward. Our cabin was almost perfect, except that it was rather creaky while sailing. That was the ONLY thing in the entire cruise that revealed the ship's age. The first night was really noisy and kept us awake. But then we either got used to it, or it wasn't as noisy later on in the cruise. The cabin was spotless, and the carpet and other soft goods in the room looked brand new. Our steward was very pleasant and took good care of us. Plenty of room and storage for the three of us. Although my daughter, who has slept in many cruise ship sofa beds, said this sofa bed was the most uncomfortable one. We really like the verandahs on HAL much better than Princess. HAL's teak flooring looks more upscale than the blue rubber matting on Princess. But what really makes a difference is that HAL's decks are far more private than what we have experienced on Princess. My in-laws had the smaller VQ Spa Verandah, room 106. They had a recurring problem with brown water coming out of the sink, shower and tub. This happened several times throughout the cruise, and they never seemed to get it fixed. We had smokers next to us who smoked on their verandah often, as they are allowed to do on HAL. In theory, smoking in not allowed on Princess verandahs, but they do it anyway.

Veranda cabin, port side on deck 9, quite adequate. A/C too cold and thermostat did not work. Plenty of storage space, even under the bed! Across from the laundromat but it was hardly ever used so no noise problem. Great view of the harbor.  Read entire member review.
Room was pretty standard veranda type. The TV was a flat screen, with a DVD player. Sofa was synthetic leather which became warm. Veranda was a nice size, with a lounge chair and well as standard style. The HVAC in the room was terrible, with the temperature between 78-82 degrees F the last several days, and they could not resolve the problem. One technician told me that many people were complaining that their rooms were too hot or too cold.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 177 on Verandah deck.  Comfortable size, long walk to stairs and elevators.  Light comes in under the door at night.  Plenty of closet and drawer space.  Full size sofa.  Bathtub with jets (but we didnt use them)  Awkward viewing angle for tv.  Chair and chaise on the verandah for comfy sightseeing in good weather.  Read entire member review.

Enjoyed the trip by diannekinzer

Very nice, but lose the no purpose pillows. Last thing I want to deal with at night. Fortunately, I could stuff them in the closet for the duration, and the cabin folk had sense enough to leave them there. There was no plug by the bed for my heating pad, but they did give me an extension cord - but it did not reach that far. THey did some balcony maintence & we were told they would be doing that between 1 and 4; not very convenient if you wanted to nap.
