Balcony cabin on Deck 4 is deeper than the other decks above us, which is great. It did not bother us that it is steel rather than panel of plexi-glass for our outside enclosure. Even at slightly over 5 feet, when sitting on balcony chairs, I can see over the railing for view of the ocean and horizon.
The bathroom is rather spacious with a combo of bathtub and shower. The shower dispensers in filled with nice shampoo, conditioner and soap of Elemis brand with a very pleasant scent. There is separate control dual dials water on/off and temperature. Once we have settled on water temperature of our likings, we set the dial which makes it easy for subsequent showers without fussing with the water temperature.
There are 3 closets across the hallway from the bathroom; ample room to put away all of our luggage. There are also sufficient hangers to get all our clothing hung in the closets. A long length mirror is located inside the middle closet, however, unfortunately, with the closet door open, it block the hallway light and render the mirror unusable during the evening hours, due to the hallway being REAL dark! During the daytime, with the curtain open, light can flow in from the balcony and visibility of the mirror is passable. Read entire member review >>
Wonderful stateroom. I enjoyed having a bath tub, although I don't take baths. But the bath tub gave me a roomy area in which to shower. The mid ship location was terrific. The bed was so comfortable! Read entire member review >>
The staterooms on the Nieuw Amsterdam are very comfortable. Ours had a bathtub. What is really nice is the locations of the closets. They are in the hallway across from the bathroom and much easier to use than ones right up against the bed.The balcony was a nice size. My only change would be to the furniture. A higher table would make it possible to have breakfast out there. Also the cane furniture moved too easily. It was hard to keep the foot stool under one's feet.The stateroom attendants were exceptional. Our stateroom was fixed and ready for our use always by mid-morning. Read entire member review >>
8119Great 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 >>
Cabin 5071Cabin was great, had enough clost space and cupboard space. Bathroom was a decent size. View from verandah was good if you didn't care that lifeboats are directly below, just look out at the sea not down at the ship below you. All in all I found it to be great considering the stories I've heard about tiny staterooms.Good value for the money. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin 8125 was great - easy one level up to Lido for hot water, tea or coffee, easy elevator ride to Manhattan restaurant. Good bit of walk to the front where the theatre, the library and the Internet cafe/explorer lounge, but it is OK since we did not check out library books every day, and we had a lap top in our room. We were located close to the elevators and thus very convenient. Fortunately, only 2 or 3 occasions that we heard people talking. Overall, great location. Read entire member review >>
Our room was very nice and for a cruise ship, spacious. We had good closet space. The bathroom was big enough and we had tub/shower unit. We were on the 8th deck toward the front of the ship and our views were incredible. The people next door were noisy a couple of nights but were quiet after 11 pm. We were right adjacent to the elevators for the front of the ship but that never did create a noise problem. It also made it easy to get down to the floor for dining or the showroom or casino. We only one deck away from the Lido so it was an easy walk for breakfast. Our room steward was excellent. Actually the best one we have had on any of our cruises. Read entire member review >>
