Lots of storage space, great bathroom. Liked the red light feature in bathroom so did not have to turn the main light on at night. Storage drawers under the bed and under the sofa. High quality deck chairs on our rear facing cabin.

Cabin was a bit tired but clean & everything worked. Service was late every day.

Aft cabin 7141. 2 decks below the Seaview pool. Only noise is from heavy seas against the ship while stuck in port on Grand Turk for a few hours. Big room with sitting area. We didn't discover the drawers under the love seat until the end! Also under the end of the bed .. on day 3! Great bathroom. Tub. Great shower. Amenities on the wall in a pump. We brought our own soap that my husband likes. Bed was made into a king. Comfortable. We had a little issue a few days into the cruise. Hubby woke up with what he thought were bed bug bites.. 123... 123... 123 in 4 different places on his body. We went to the ships medical and they examined him and took pictures! He had something for the itching and they came and tore the cabin apart looking for the culprit to no avail.. but freshened up the cabin with all new linens and towels.. we'll never know what it was.. it didn't happen again and didn't get worse. We felt that they handled it the best they could. Our cabin attendant Cristina was great. She brought me a ton of extra hangers.. I overpacked.
I gave her 5 minutes a night off .. by telling her she could skip out towel animals... We love aft cabins and looking down at the swirls from the "screws" as my husband likes to sound like Mr. Maritime ... Also it ensures you do a lot of walking on board.

Cabin was clean and comfortable except for unsuitable balcony furniture.
A complaint registered no response.

Cabin was ok. The balcony was larger than expected and nice. Bathroom was pretty spacious and had a full bathtub, convenient for washing kids. The cabin itself was cramped for two adults and two kids. Plenty of storage.

Wonderful large balcony which faces somewhat aft and blocks most wind. Balcony chair and ottoman very comfortable. Cabin was large. Shower was large, but no tub. No couch. 2 uncomfortable dining room style chairs. Could hear elevator tones occasionally. Please see youtube video on Nieuw Amsterdam cabin 6052.

Great room! Long walk from elevator to room. Giant balcony!

Our room was a VB Upper Verandah on port side. The sunrise and sunset were always in our room going westward. The room was just far enough from the navigation bridge over our head to not obstruct the sky view but close enough to see bridge maneuvers. Just over the beginning of the wake, for the tremendous sound..... The balcony had only one deck chair and one chair. The couch was broken so we could not really sit on it. The doors of the overhead bin are dangerous as they may come down on you. The beds were terrific. 2 out of 3 closets needed some lights because when the closet doors are open the overhead corridor light cannot reach inside. The bathroom was well planned and shower was tremendous. The bathtub was too small for a small person. Noise from outside was not a factor.

HAL's balcony rooms are great - good closet space - a sofa - bathtub - we were happy in our room - though we envied our cruise companion that had a suite.

Balcony rooms on the Nieuw Amsterdam are outstanding - enough closet space, sofa, desk, bathtub!

Our room setup was as expected but we forgot to exercise our option not to be "upgraded". What this means is the carefully chosen room we initially booked was lost and instead we given an "upgraded" room that happened to be beside and bank of elevators which we hear dinging at the worst hours of precious sleep. We never discovered what about our "upgraded" room was different than what we had booked but I suggest you check if your cruise line has a policy to opt out if you first choose a specifically located room as we had.

Cabin 7143 is a VA Cabin that has an aft-view. It provides some great views on sail-away but is very noisy on the balcony due to the props. The prop noise makes it difficult to hold a conversation or to take a nap. The interior of the cabin is adequate but more storage and closet space is needed for extended voyages. There is very little drawer space or places to store luggage.
If you don't mind the constant noise on the balcony from the props this cabin is a good choice. To be fair, you can't hear the props inside the cabin.

Upper Verandah Deck 6054, Port side. Reasonable size but bed layout made it a bit restricting to move around. When sofa was made into a bed for our daughter, virtually impossible to get onto the verandah. My husband actually gashed the back of his leg on the metal leg of the sofa bed trying to squeeze past it to get onto the verandah. Good location of stateroom, midship, not far from lifts. Next door stateroom had adjoining verandah to friends' verandah, which made for some fairly noisy evenings.

Had a Wonderful Time NotSoRealMcCoy
The room is on the 5th deck, port (left) side, towards the front. It was a quiet location and we really enjoyed the balcony (our first cruise with one). The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was a decent size. It had plenty of closet and storage space (including room enough under the bed to place our suitcases). However, getting into the closets, which are right across from the bathroom, can be a bit awkward at times. You do have to place your ship Id card in a slot near the door to make the lights and TV work, but we eventually figured out that any card of that size can be used (i.e. credit card).

Storm at Sea Archie's Mom
Very poor lighting in small closet area. You could not see into the closet without a flashlight. Not much storage room. Great tub/shower combination. Great bed and pillows. We enjoyed opening the deck dividers between our 4 cabins for fun times on the balcony.

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.
