The verandah cabin provided plenty of room for storing our clothes and the cabin was always well kept by our steward. Comfortable bed and we enjoyed our verandah views and breakfasts in the room when we had an early itinerary planned.

Cabin was great, as promised, clean, nice, functional. This cabin in on the Navigation Deck, towards the front of the ship. Many people stated that they felt bad vibrations from this section of the ship, we did not experience any such issue, just the normal vibration of the ship when it starts up. No issues for us. Verandah was great, can't live without it! There is a staff service room directly adjacent to this cabin. No issue for us, but the door opens and closes all night long with staff. Once in a while the staff are a little loud. This might be a concern if you are uber sensitive. This cabin is also directly under the Greenhouse Spa and the front of the Lido exit. No real noise except for some furniture arranging at the end of the day. Room was well cleaned, and all our requests were promptly addressed.

Cabin was very satisfactory, near the back of the ship, but easy access to elevators. I recommend it.

The cabin was clean and spacious and the cabin attendant kept it that way without intruding. There was a little extra storage above the sleeper sofa, easily accessible to me but not to my wife; she's 4'9'", I'm 5'11". The sofa was showing its age. It was impossible to get the cushion on properly or to stay in place. Otherwise exceptional. During a 5 week dry dock they installed a new TV system and the crew was still learning how to operate it. In cabin movies were very good and plentiful, with new movies added almost daily.

The cabin was fine. It was small, but I really liked the balcony. I was irritated at the location. Our cabin was at the extreme end (aft) of the ship. We were told before we left that were upgraded to a "VC" cabin, which was midship. That was not the case. But, our Butler was excellent.

The air conditioning was very noisy and blasted us with icy air all night. We had it adjusted, down to just noisy but much less effective. Found a number of items under the bed and in the seat box that tells me the cabins were not cleared/cleaned thoroughly - not surprising as 2 stewards appeared to look after the whole forward port side of the deck. The Balcony door flew open in high winds, and had to be kept locked. I suspect our forward location almost underneath the bridge created more wind as well. Wallpaper peeling in places. Beds, as with most other cruise lines these days, were a little firm for us (orthopaedic).

The ship has mechanical issues. A/C off and on during the week. Sometimes it was unbearably hot. There was a blown engine the week we were on, so I wonder if they diverted power form the a/c to other systems. Unacceptable, but unfortunately par for the course with HAL.

Good location just below the aft pool and close to access the Lido and aft elevators which are never busy

This stateroom is very good. Spacious enough to give the passenger a sensation of openness. The glass verandah is a plus (worth paying for). It is located in the 6th floor in the aft – port, where there is few foot traffic and since it is far below the Lido, it is very quiet. Verandah staterooms are new and far superior compared to other ships.

We were directly under the navigation deck, could see the feet of the officers above through a glass floor. With that came a large light and box that blocked my view when taking pictures from the balcony. Other than tat, the room was great, actually larger than we had imagined. Lots of closet space.

We were assigned cabin 8144, a deluxe verandah, category VA. The cabin was on the port side of the ship on the Navigation Deck, deck 8. The cabin is located directly below the aft pool deck and can get a bit noisy. It didn't bother us much, but for the more noise sensitive folks out there, you may not want this room. You could hear heavy footed people, people dragging chairs, the band, and the cleaning crew. The room was kept very clean, but seemed to be showing its age a bit. We had amble storage for all our luggage, clothes, and gear. Remember to look under the foot of the bed for two large drawers and room to store luggage under the head of the bed. If you find things already in the drawers or under the bed, ask the room steward and he will gladly remove them for you. The rooms have a strange energy saving device by the door. You have to put your room key into a slot to turn on the power to the room. No card, no lights! The only thing that operates without your key are the reading lamps on either side of the bed. Good idea to bring a power strip to plug in more than two items.

Only negative to this stateroom was that it was below the pool deck and almost every morning about 6:30 you heard chairs scrape.

We always demand for a cabin near an escalator on HAL. No noise. Quiet. Easy excess to other areas via escalator. Midship. Fourth level with a verandah and bathtub.
