Room was very big for just two people but we really liked it. Very quite too. Didn't hear anyone else, not even from the hallway. I felt for people who were mid ship near the center area where there were a lot of loud things going on.
Drapes kept it quiet and the bed was comfortable. Our porter was also great and kept the room in great shape.
The window was really nice. I will never forget waking up one morning and opening the curtains to see Hubbard Glacier right in front of me. Read entire member review >>
Clean, great Stateroom attendant, very attentive to our needs. Made great towel animals too. Surprising how much storage space they build into these rooms. We have no trouble finding space for all our stuff. Read entire member review >>
We had 3060 and 3062 interconnecting cabins - Lots of space, clean neat tidy, mini bar was adequate, safes were brilliant and lots of hanging room and drawers, never used all of it. Cabin Steward Gede was a delight. His attention to detail in the room was awesome. Would recommend these rooms as access to level 4 to dining and 5 to the shows was easy to get to.

Old and tired. Furniture was threadbare and worn. Lifejackets not in wardrobe indicated - potentially dangerous if an emergency had occurred. Wardrobe door hinge broken. No catches to secure door when ship rolling. Drawers opening and closing when ship rolling. Room service a joke as earliest from ordering a simple pot of tea was 30 minutes and the longest 1 hour 40 minutes. No tea or coffee making facilities. Only water available was to buy from mini-bar from fridge that was not cold. Read entire member review >>
The family ocean view is around 328 square feet as opposed to the 161 square feet of the standard ocean view.
It has a second bedroom with a single bed and an upper bunk bed that can be brought down from the ceiling.
The cabin is all the way forward on the starboard side with two large windows looking out over the front of the ship, it was quite a nice view.
There was next to no noise in this room, other than the one day we stopped in Icy Strait point, they dropped the anchor at around 06:30 in the morning and you really heard it go, a minor point as we were up at this point and it doesn't happen all the time.
The first two days were rough seas, though it didn't bother us much, being as we were near the bow we did hear the occasional large wave striking the bow, but it was not really that loud.
If you are susceptible to sea sickness though you might consider something closer amidships as it will reduce the motion for you.
I had originally booked a standard ocean view on deck 3, but at 4 weeks prior to the cruise this room opened up and I was able to upgrade to it for a modest fee. Normally this room can only be booked by groups of 5 or larger. Read entire member review >>
Our 390 sq-ft stateroom FO 8002 had a sitting area with a double sofabed, a bedroom area that had 2 twin beds (convert to a Queen), and a tiny separate bedroom for a twin bed and a pull-down bunk bed. The whole room can accommodate 6 people and you normally need to have at least 5 pp to book that type of room. However, just 1 month before our sail date, that room became available as an ordinary oceanview room that allowed double occupancy. As seniors we happily gave away our E2 mid-ship balcony room (on the Starboard side which should have been great while watching Hubbard Glacier) for a more spacious room. We LOVED our huge room and really enjoyed the separate sleeping areas. My daughter's family had 2 Aft rooms with huge balconies so we could still enjoy the Alaskan views in our own private world.
