Very nice room. Comfortable bed an plenty of storage space, including drawers in the bed. We brought a small power strip so we would have enough plugs. We found they have both North American and European type plugs so we didn't need our adapter. The bathroom was good and the soaps and lotions were very nice. Read entire member review >>
A standard verandah cabin with small balcony. Plenty of room and hangers for one. I think three people would be comfortable in this cabin. Great cabin stewards in Adi and Taufiq. Read entire member review >>
Clean, narrow walk way between bed and wall, very narrow door (if you have a wheeled walker it does not fit nor does a wheel chair). Adequate storage, hangars, 2 full closets both have a fold down shelf if you need more shelf space than hanging space. 2 large pillows 2 regular bed pillows. White sheets, White comforter with white cover. Cabin Stewards arrive around 9 unless you put out the do not disturb or make up the room now cards. They fill the ice bucket morning and night unless you ask for more or less. The ice melts fast. NO DVD as advertised and refrigerator is full from the mini bar and water you have to pay for and it is NOT cold it is tepid at best. Small love seat with oval table and one chair. A small square cube with storage under the desk. Never saw a hair dryer. Bathrobes are in the closet and your life jackets are one in each closet. Two lounge chairs with adjustable backs and a foot rest for each chair. Steel Railing obscures you view of the ocean or shoreline. KEEP the Verandah door LOCKED or if a wind comes up it will suck your door open specifically if you open the hall door. Tap water taste ok and we drank it every day without any problems. Small shower...26in x 36in x 3.5in, it is not a perfect rectangle. It cuts at the one corner, has a shower curtain not a door. Read entire member review >>
For a deluxe stateroom, 8160 was a bit cramped. The only chair was not particularly comfortable and the love seat was a bit crowded for two. The love seat also had stains. The king sized bed was very comfortable and had sheets and a light blanket. Too many places put duvets on the beds and they're too hot. The balcony was my favorite part. It was quiet and sufficiently roomy to be comfortable. It also afforded a terrific view when we passed Stromboli as it was erupting. Read entire member review >>
Whoever takes the online photos should be given an award for making small spaces look huge! Don't get me wrong it was a nice enough room with okay space for a cruise ship, but from the descriptions I expected more. Kind of the theme of our Holland America trip. Not worth the extra money.

Aft cabin worked great for the rough weather. This cabin did not have the usual tub and shower combination of the Veranda outside cabins, only the shower. No problem for us. It was quiet and at the end of the hall with very little foot traffic. Read entire member review >>
Noisy but more the fault of our neighbours than the cabin itself. Elemis products provided in the bathroom - which was excellent. Small bathroom but did not cause a problem. Balcony large but only one comfortable chair, the other was like a waiting room chair. Comfortable beds, good TV. Read entire member review >>
Good, forward location, very quiet. Balcony big enough for two chairs and a little drinks table. Forward location means a bit more motion but that doesn't bother us. We were very close to elevators and stairs. Never heard our neighbors or anything above us. I would stay there again. Read entire member review >>
We were in a "Deluxe" Verandah cabin on Deck 4 (cabin 4035). Much to our dismay, the balcony railing was solid steel, not Plexiglas as pictured on the website photos. As a result, when seated on the balcony one can only see a sliver of water above the railing. It's necessary to stand up in order to see a panoramic view. When I booked through the cruise line, I was not told that many of the cabins on Deck 4 have these steel railings; balconies on the higher decks have Plexiglas. In the brochure for future cruises, it does state that these are solid railings, so the agent should have known that and made me aware when I asked if this was a "good" room. My advice is, if you are assigned a cabin on Deck 4, ask specifically about the railings. Read entire member review >>
4144. Although behind the elevator bank at the rear 2/3 of the ship, it was a GREAT room for the view, location to the restaurants, and pool activities, but far from the shows, the casino, and all the night time life. We never heard ONE elevator bell the whole time we were there. Although we prefer the middle of any ship the best, 4144, was indeed a great cabin, with access to the elevators a mere 20 foot walk at best. Read entire member review >>
