We have had this cabin for four cruises now - the fall trans-Atlantic, the spring trans-Atlantic, the round trip from Barcelona, and the Barcelona to Dover trip.
We were offered an upgrade to ocean view for part of this last vacation but did not take it as we are very comfortable in this cabin. It is in an ideal location as far as we are concerned. It is a comfortable size and had loads of storage room. It is quiet and about midway between the atrium and the stern elevators. There is a laundry room just down the hall - but not close enough to be noisy and we only have to go a few steps to go out onto the promenade deck and walk around or sit on the lounge chairs. We have the advantage of a 'balcony' that covers both sides of the ship that way. We like being reasonably close to the atrium as we can play Sjoelen when we like as well as take advantage of one of the large desks there to either work on the computer or play cards.

We chose our cabin for the location, which was ideal for our needs. It was just a few steps from the doors to provide us with the biggest balcony at sea "the promenade deck". We were mid-ship - a short distance to atrium and elevators without being so close that there was any noise from people using either the elevators or playing Dutch shuffleboard in the atrium. There was no overhead noise either. Our cabin was a good size for our purpose. There was comfortable seating - a loveseat and another movable chair which was excellent for using when doing hair or makeup or using my computer. There was tons of storage room in that cabin - we could have brought a lot more with us if we had realized how generous the storage area was. We have had a wide variety of cabin types in the past - inside, outside, veranda and mini-suites but we chose this as it provided all the space we want or need and I especially love the storage space at the head of the bed. The bed was the most comfortable we have ever had on any ship - and that is saying a lot as we've been in ship beds for about 330 nights in the last six or seven years!! The shower was a nice size and I was delighted to see the shampoo, conditioner and body wash now in built-in containers. That is so much nicer than fiddling with little bottles as one had to do in the past. My only possible complaint was that I found the cabin warmer than was comfortable for me - between 21 and 23C (70-73F). I am accustomed to about 68F at night or otherwise it is hard on my breathing. A large fan was provided for the cabin and that helped my comfort level a lot. To sum it up we were so happy with our cabin that will book it again when on the Ryndam or her sister ships.

Perfect honeymoon cabin as it contains only a bed! Fruit flies in the bathroom are no longer a problem as I spent the week killing them off and its fine now. If you are pressed for time, you will find it convenient to brush your teeth while sitting on the toilet - the sink is right there in your lap.
Find a different cabin and don't fall for the 'spa suite' upgrade. Read entire member review >>
