HAL has great and especially the new Nieuw Amsterdam. I am not a light packer so I had alot of stuff. Didn't fill all the closets and didn't even use the drawers under the bed which was a nice touch. Would have liked a switch to turn on or off the speaker in the cabin for annoucements, had to open the door to hear the cruise director and others at times. Great baloney, I think a bit bigger than others above us.  Read entire member review.
Disappointed by essence2010
Cabin 4050 was in a good spot. Almost every port we were on the dock side.  Read entire member review.
We had connecting cabins 4160&4164. Exactly as described and exactly as pictured.  Read entire member review.
We had VD class Cabin 4172 on Upper Promenade and travelling with brother and sister-in-law in Cabin 4168 allowed us to open up the balcony between the two cabins. The balcony for 4168 is double the size of normal balcony so we ended up with a very large space. This allowed for plenty of space when having drinks. The cabins themselves were spacious enough without be constricting. Plenty of wardrobe space. The small table & chair, sofa and dining table were not intrusive on the space as the flat screen TV was mounted on the wall. The bathroom did not have a bath, only a shower alcove which was OK. Being a large person I did not feel cramped. The sink and bench area can be overcrowded with one's toiletries (mostly my wife's)though. One may have to adjust air conditioning to suits one's taste. Being aft there was not the engine noise you might expect. The beds are very comfortable but I found my pillows too soft. In all we were very pleased with our cabins.  Read entire member review.
Our Stateroom was 4179 on deck 4 starboard. It's the very most rear cabin before the corner suite. The cabin was nice though there was an issue of the closet closest to the door not having any light. Makes it almost impossible to see in there so a battery operated tap light or something like that would be useful. And the overall layout of the closet setup is much better laid out on Princess, though its just a bit of a tight layout between the closets and bathroom Otherwise, the room and balcony are what we would expect for a cruise ship. Actually being on Deck 4 our balcony is about a foot or so longer than all the other decks which is nice. This is because the lifeboats are directly below us and they needed a wider perch to hang from. So if you want a larger balcony for no extra cost, deck 4 is where you want to be. The cabin is a shower only room, no bathtub, which we knew going in. Have to say, one of the nicest showers we've had on any ship. Good pressure, plenty of room, and a really nice shower head. The triple dispensers in the shower with soap, shampoo and conditioner make for easy access to all. And I really liked the dual controls for temperature and water on/off. Makes it easy to set the temp quickly the next time. Not to mention the lush towels like you used to get in the nice hotels years ago, really nice. And the bathrobes provided with the cabin were really nice and soft and much thicker than the paper thin ones we get on Princess. We thought about buying a set to take home. Beds are relatively comfortable though DW (RebeccaC on these forums) did ask for an egg crate topper after the first night. The pillows were a bit too soft but we find that in almost every hotel and ship we go to. We at also had the mini fridge emptied so we could put out our own drinks in there. They have it preloaded with pay beverages.  Read entire member review.
Disabled room.. Slightly more floor space, no bath, no sofa but larger balcony ..facing backwards. Not nearly enough long hanging space for posh frocks! Wet room floor has sharp grids..needed slippers! Air con far too fierce...unable to adjust noise.  Read entire member review.
Nieuw Amsterdam by sally55
10034 great balcony, room adequate for two people. Bed was not a king but two twins together without a pad so it was uncomfortable in the middle. Hard to put suitcase away in the closet.  Read entire member review.
8119 Great cabin, for disabled travellers but offers plenty of space and the lack of a bath no problem - big roll-in shower. Loved the extra spacious balcony, you can see forward and to the side.  Read entire member review.
Adequate space, but wouldn't have wanted to spend more than a week in it. Enough closets, shelves, and hangers. Didn't use the verandah but the view was nice. When the crew washed the verandahs, they appeared to start at the lower decks as lots of water sloshed down onto ours (Deck 4) long after they had finished it.  Read entire member review.
