Good location, great balcony, very little noise  Read entire member review.
Cabin 4182 Eurodam. Aft cabin smack dab in the center(wake-watcher)- very nice. The room was long, but somewhat narrow which made for difficulty retrieving items from the small, dark closets. The verandah was quite large (8.75'Wide x 6.5'Deep). The bathroom was ok excepting no storage space for normal bathroom goodies. There was no noise other than normal ship sounds, and the ride was totally smooth.  Read entire member review.
Tiny balcony with poor furniture. Closet too dark. Bathroom old with chipped tub. Cabin nice and large. Good color scheme. Drapes nice. TV way too small and not interactive. Great bed side lights. Nice side tables with locking drawers.  Read entire member review.
- I had to report a problem with the bathroom : indeed impossible to have a constant temperature, especially in the shower (the water goes from cold to hot), despite several interventions, the problem has never been resolved; - problem of evacuation of water in the sink in the bathroom: problem solved within 48 hours; - mold in the bathroom, and hair on the floor; - a persistent puddle at the bottom of the tub; - Air conditioning is loud and the fan is installed just above the bed is not very nice to receive a - direct and prolonged fresh air on yourself; - the cabin door to access the balcony is not practical at all: it is heavy to handle, take up much space on the balcony and does not in the open position and a sliding door (like all other companies) would more convenient and less dangerous; - a tiny television in the cabin;  Read entire member review.
Baltic Cruise 2011 by gudolerhum
Our cabin VA5188, was comfortable with adequate room to relax and store our belongings. Close to dining room. Good balcony to enjoy sunsets or take photos of our ports of call. No distracting noises and only mild vibration occasionally from the engines. No noticeable sign of rolling or movement from the ship. It was a great experience!  Read entire member review.
Rear veranda cabin 5193 was excellent. There was little wind on the veranda during sailing.  Read entire member review.

Excellent Baltic Adventure by wheelchairtraveler

Balcony is partially obstructed by a metal piece. This is not disclosed in the description of a Superior Verandah. 3 adults shared this room. It was roomier than most cabins, and I was able to more around in my wheelchair. The bathroom was roomy, and user friendly with two exceptions: the rails in the bathroom were not very useful, and pull down rails by the toilet would be more useful. Access to the verandah was difficult, with a small rise in an inconvenient position. There is a pillar in the middle of the room, which made getting near the closets difficult in a wheelchair. There really wasn't enough closet space.

The room was at the end of the hall, with very little traffic outside, and was very quiet.

The 'contemporary' decor advertised as the Eurodam decor looses its sparkle in the stateroom. The variable shade beige wall coverings might have been nicer when first install, but now they are just dingy and look soiled. We had a dark, depressing picture by the bed.

Since we were out and about most of the time, the room decor was not so bad. If I were on a long cruise, or spent much time there I would find it oppressive.

Our room stewards were friendly, helpful, and efficient. The room was always clean and tidy.

Overall Great Value by delgados129
Nice, very comfortable cabin. Plenty of closet space. A bit tricky learnign how to work the motorized curtains...the button that operates them are all the way on the other side of the bed and their not marked. From a design perspective, you would expect them to be in close proximity to the curtains. TV could have a better selection of programming for news business news like Bloomberg, CNBC or Fox Business network. While at sea, we caught up on a few movies with the free DVD rentals.  Read entire member review.
Cabin 6141. Small, claustrophobic and poorly arranged. Bad bad lighting.  Read entire member review.
Eurodam 1/26/13 by denton1
6166 is an aft verandah cabin. The balcony is bigger, but the cabin is a touch smaller because of the curve of the stern. Instead of a sofa, it has 2 chairs. Otherwise it is identical to all other verandah cabins. The view is great!  Read entire member review.
Stern balcony cabin -- Quiet location but definite vibration at times.  Read entire member review.
Great view. Enough closet space.  Read entire member review.
Wedding Cruise by BeCruisin
Cabin 7005: quiet location near the bridge...actually the bridge could look in on our balcony!  Read entire member review.

Transatlantic cruise is not a cruise that's good for a balcony. Opening a balcony door was usually met with 40 to 50 mph winds. The room was comparable to every other cruise line, nothing more special, even those Holland American is suppose to be a more upper end cruise line. Noise would be what you expect in a Motel / Hotel.

Typical verandah, two wicker chairs and small table. On deck 7, or Rotterdam deck, forward of midships. Nice bed, extra pillows, some smell in toilet which they finally overcame by putting something in the water, which worked well. Closet space reasonable, no noise in hall even though cabin is just around the corner from the elevators  Read entire member review.
Outstanding location - quiet even though convenient to elevators.  Read entire member review.

7119 - typical veranda with tub, two hanging closets and pull down shelf and closet with shelves and safe. 2 chairs and little table on veranda. Comfortable bed. Not a lot of movement in cabin on crossing compared to other areas on the ship- away from hallway activity but close to elevators for restaurants.

The room is comfortable and the cabin stewards are polite and helpful. The carpet is showing sign of wear.

The cabin was smaller than other cabins I have had on HAL ships but adequate. Verandah needs different seating as the "wicker" chairs were very uncomfortable.

Aft cabin 7138 Rotterdam deck of Eurodam. Cabin was longer by about 5 feet to same cabin category on port side of the ship on same deck. Views were expansive and there was no noticable extra vibration or noise due to location.  Read entire member review.
Rotterdam Deck #7143 ~ Dim, Dark & Smelly. While the cabin smelled & looked clean at first glance, the closets reeked of stale cigarettes. We kept majority of our clean clothes in our suitcases so they didn't smell and used the closet for dirty ones. If you use the closets, you'll need a flashlight/book light as they are not well lit. In 7 days, we didn't spend 10 minutes on our balcony -- what a waste of money -- and in our past balcony cruises, we ate breakfast every morning out there and spent much time in the evenings & while in port enjoying it. Being on the back was the kicker I believe, because opening the door was like turning on a suction machine drawing all the smoke from surrounding cabins right inside ours and if you were out there, it was unbearable. I do really think it was the aft location because we've been on both Celebrity & Princess side balconies, and while it would occasionaly annoy us, it certainly didn't keep us from being out there & enjoying ourselves.  Read entire member review.

7143 was an aft cabin and very spacious. the balcony too was larger and good for sightseeing as it was not windy. the aft cabin views are hindsight sees things moving away...being left behind. this doesnt quite compare with seeing things come into view. it was a quiet location.
7135 was a few doors away from 7143..again a quiet location. this was decent sized too though less open space than 7143.
suitcases can be pushed under the bed in both rooms. storage was sufficent for us.

Cabin 8012, very good storage, comfortable bed(s) Shower a bit tricky to set temperature, we found. Nice balcony. Gooseneck reading lamps and night light are well thought out.  Read entire member review.
Reasonably good size but a little drab. Some creative use of colour would help. Good privacy on the balcony. Some noise from children running around in the corridor above (we were below the Spa so it wasn't a problem at night).  Read entire member review.

We were offered a near departure reduced upgrade to a Veranda. The balcony was very nice, especially coming into and out of the destinations.

Older Crowd by dre714
We like to be mid ship so chose a cabin accordingly. We did overlook the lifeboats which seemed to stick out more than other ships we have been on. It was not obtrusive and did not obstruct our view but I would avoid being over them in the future.  Read entire member review.
Voyage of the (Euro)Damned! by The Eurodamned
Great location, quiet, nice balcony, ample storage.  Read entire member review.
Our cabin was great. All we had to do was go up one floor for the dining and to the pool. There was plenty of room for storage, including 3 suitcases.  Read entire member review.
New Ship--Mostly Good by Takes Notes
Can have some noise as tables, etc on the Lido deck are rearranged. However, the cabin is otherwise completely silent. Also, the "structure" above the veranda is better for visibility than others on this deck.  Read entire member review.
May in the Baltics by fun_seeker
Great balcony and not far from elevators. Ship movements were exaggerated but I think that is because we were on Deck 8. The Lido is right about the cabin and everyday there was some rattling noise coming from upstairs that was quite loud. If we had stayed in the cabin more I am sure it would have been annoying.  Read entire member review.
Not enough shelving, but ample closet space. Large bathroom, full tub and shower. Comfortable beds, couch for two, small desk. Balcony slightly larger on the Navigation deck Aft than the VA cabins facing the sides - about 2 feet more deep. Good overhang on Navigation aft makes balcony completely private, and sheltered from rain and spray, but still short enough to get some sun. Quiet - very little hall noise as it's at the aft, very little noise from pool deck above except for during the day, with the occasional chair noise.  Read entire member review.
Our room was 8171, at the very aft, next door to the suite with the wrap-around balcony. I would not recommend this room if you have issues with noise. Our crossing was fairly rough, so people were not eating around the aft pool, but once the weather settled down, and they did eat there, we continually heard moving of chairs. Our room was small - barely enough room to cross between the bed and the wall, but we did have a small sitting area with couch and table, and our balcony was large enough for 2 chairs, small footstool, and very small table.  Read entire member review.
HAL or Princess by IrishM
Quiet location. Near the Crow's Nest ( but not a lot of noise ) and library. Not a true balcony room. Good storage but smaller than expected.  Read entire member review.
Just a reminder for those who book on the Navigation deck floor #8: There was a lot of moving furniture right above our cabin especially in San Juan. They were setting up a buffet on the pool deck above us. We did complain as it appeared that the towel rack was above us too. There was a lot of movement of people walking on a daily basis. The ship apologized with a plate of chocolates, just what we did not need! (repeated from above)  Read entire member review.
Long and narrow. The bathroom was a bit larger than on other ships and has a deep tub. I don't know if this is standard for all the rooms or not. Closet space is somewhat limited but adequate. The balcony has room for two chairs and a small table. There is a love seat and small chair at one end, with a coffee table so you don't have to sit on the bed all the time. Flat screen TV. Nice carpet/decor. Excellent bed.  Read entire member review.
Madame The Eurodam by Miss Independence
On deck 8 just below the Lido deck. Great position. No noisy rooms overhead and close enough to the lifts. Balcony was adequate and we enjoyed it apart from the smokers next door. Room smaller than we expected but big enough - see review for more information. We heard no noise from the cabins each side and I hope they did not hear us as we spent night after night coughing. Cleaning was not as good as on previous ships but not worth complaint although I don't think the balcony was cleaned at all.  Read entire member review.

Usual clean cabin with excellent service. We had very little vibration.
