Cabin Rating
We had an oceanview cabin (DA 551) on deck 5 towards the bow. It is close to the elevators, a bit noisy as everyone goes past your cabin. Always some rude inconsiderate people talking loudly at 1 in the morning or really early in the morning. Directly across from cabin 553 (next door) are the room attendants who start work early and make a loud of noise because of the nature of their work. Also, right above you on the lower promenade deck on Deck 6 are the cable fittings which attach to the ramp for disembarkation onto ground level from deck 3, in Quebec City, Charlottetown and Syndey, when a bridge or jetway is not used. If you are an early rise and won't be bothered by the noise, great. If not, pick another cabin.  Read entire member review.
right across a frequently accessed crew space; a bit noisy but okay to me (not light sleeper); great window and large room.  Read entire member review.

This was a wonderful cabin! It was quiet and convenient to everything! This cabin is located at the end of a row of cabins mid-ship with only one cabin on one side and no cabins across the hall. In traveling from Boston to New England we saw wonderful views from the large window. The sunrises were breathtaking! This cabin is located near the elevators and stairs making it easy to navigate the ship. It is also in the mid-ship area so we did not receive much sea movement. Everything worked well and the cabin stewards were so very hospitable and attentive!

Quiet, lots of storage space, very comfortable mattresses, a/c worked great, generous sized bathroom.  Read entire member review.
Good amenities. Great mattress, lots of closet space, drawer space, a full-sized tub and love seat. Next to a main gang way. While it was never opened, it was noisy. If you port on that side on disembarkation day, that gangway will be opened very early in the morning to prepare. Loud banging coming from the outside of the ship (we surmised that it was a tender being raised and lowered each day) will awaken you at 5AM every morning. Very convenient to elevators and self-serve laundry. Overall we had quiet passengers aboard, but this room does have potential to be loud as it is on the corner by the elevators. Great A/C.  Read entire member review.
Cabin was in an excellent location, right next to where we boarded and disembarked so no dragging suitcases up and down the stairs. It was also very convenient while in port since the gangway was down 2 levels on the nearby staircase or elevators. This cabin is very spacious and provides a great view of Hamilton while in port--some of the cabins aft have views blocked by a building while in Hamilton. Though the Lower Promenade walking deck is overhead, I only heard faint noise a couple of times.  Read entire member review.

Comfortable room with good sea views on Main Deck. Bathroom a little small, but is expected. Good storage and closet space. Most important - mid ship area, when sea was rough we barely felt it.

Outside cabins have the beds blocking the view when make up as a queen. If you and a partner can deal with it, better when beds are separated as singles.  Read entire member review.
Cabin DA640 was very spacious and had plent of storage and bathroom was wonderful and even had a bathtub. Wonderful central location on Main Deck of Veendam.  Read entire member review.
Outside Cabin with plenty of room, sofa, flat screen TV and separate DVD player, close to elevator and stairs, had tub/shower, lots of closet space  Read entire member review.
Cabin was fine, except for the bathtub. It was very deep, and dispensers for shampoo, conditioner, and gel were too high to reach if one chose a bath instead of a shower. Controls (faucets, shower, temperature) were difficult to maneuver. Good sized room. Nice to have a sofa in addition to the beds.  Read entire member review.
O.K. Wet Alaska by liketraveling
The cabine on this ship was probably the best of all the ships I have been on. The bed's were awesome. The closets are great. There were two closets and you could convert part of the closet space into shelf space.  Read entire member review.
These cabins were rated but not individually reviewed; read the full cruise review for opinions on cabins and more.
