We were very pleased with our cabin, having upgraded at the last minute from an inside cabin. The view was obstructed by a life boat, but we enjoyed good light from a large picture window that was much bigger than you would get in an ocean view room. The room was above the Explorations Cafe and below passenger cabins so we heard no noise apart from when they were working on the lifeboats while in port. Since we were ashore on port days this did not bother us. The sheers over the window are very heavy and provide complete privacy from would-be voyeurs on the promenade deck.

Good size, very quiet. We never spend much time in the cabin, and when we do we are asleep. For the money, you can't beat the outside obstructed. Lots of light, you can see the weather outside. If you want to sit outside, join the folks on deck. More chance to people watch and enjoy the beautiful Noordam. Read entire member review >>
we were in cabin 1079 (boy and terry) personally thought the location was great.Mid-ship ,one up to the Vista dinning ,one down to the embarkation point and the main desk was 30 seconds away.Quiet location despite being close to the main facilities would definitely try for this one again.

We had a moderate size outside stateroom with what was listed as a fully obstructed view; however, we could clearly see ocean and sky with only the top half of a life boat blocking some of our large double pane window.
Our stateroom was kept clean in a timely fashion, room service was right on time, fresh fruit left daily was a treat, and the use of white comfortable robes was perfect.
The closets were adequate, and the tub in bathrooms a real plus. With the adjustable shower hose, it afforded me an opportunity to have sit-down showers on rough water days! And there were many of those! Read entire member review >>
