The were three of us, my parents on their very comfortable bed and me on the fold out couch. It was close living and more than one week, and I doubt we would have been friends by the end. But the stewards kept the room very clean. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was right in the very middle and was very comfortable when the seas got rough. We had no problems. It got hot or cold as we wanted. The shower was very hot, no plumbing problems for us, even though we saw them replace the shower faucets in 768. We wished that at least once on our cruise they could have washed the window on the outside but oh well. We asked to have the stool removed but that didn't happen so we moved it out of the way. Overall it was a comfortable cabin. Read entire member review >>
Very good except for the absolutely terrible shower/bath controls. They must have been designed by the Spanish Inquisition! The slightest temperature adjustment, less than 1 mm would go from cool to scalding. Also the water would run rusty for a bit upon occasion. Where is this corrosion occurring? At least we had water--my wife overheard a conversation at the desk where one cabin didn't have any the previous night. Read entire member review >>
760 on Veendam was on the 4th level, mid ship. Wonderful cabin. clean, spacious, tons of storage. Large picture window. Loved that we had a tub with shower instead of a tiny cubicle shower. Water pressure was great, but sometimes hard to control the heat. The AC seemed to have a mind of it's own. Sometimes the cabin was too hot or too cold without us touching the thermostat. Loved the curtain between the cabin and hallway. Hubby could come and go while I was getting ready, without worrying about passer-byers looking into the cabin when ever he opened the stateroom door. Fridge in the cabin would have been nice, however our cabin stewart kept us constantly supplied with ice. Read entire member review >>
