King size plus bed, with lots of closet space in entry hall. Small couch with table, and a desk with small television. Walk around room at foot of the bed was tight, but doable. Bathroom had good sized vanity, with shelves on one side. Full mirror, but electrical outlet is at the desk,not in bathroom. Hair dryer is in room, so don't bother with yours. Shower/tub is good, with great water pressure and soap, shampoo and conditioner supplied. Lots of towels. Toilet is at an angle, so be ready to adjust on those midnight trips. Also, we found closing the bathroom door at night helped with air handling noise.
Sliding door to veranda. Ours was a bit heavy, but we noticed others not so. Worked for our purposes. Read entire member review >>
Excellent Verandah deck Vista suite for a medium length or longer voyage. Good space inside and on verandah. Bed was comfortable and hot water was plentiful - although one day it was just warm for a few hours in the morning. First 3 days temperature control worked very well and only required s slight turn of diam to change from mild cooling to mild heat. As voyage progressed the control seemed to be possessed. To get heat it had to be turned up to maximum for several hours. And some times the temperature varied from cool to warm without any changes of the control. Drain in bathtub was very, very slow to the point of having to wait to be able to rinse feet off after a shower. Read entire member review >>
We were impressed with the amount of room the Vista Suite offered. We were never in each others way and, even though sometimes the outside temperature was cold, utilized the decent-sized verandah. A nice touch is the teak decks, and cushions for the chairs. All of the plumbing and lighting worked without a problem. The bed was very comfortable, and it was nice to be able to choose between three different levels of firmness for the pillows. I chose Firm and DW chose Medium. This cabin does have the bed and couch facing backwards but that didn't matter to us.
With regards to location, I like to be aft of the midship-stabilizer as I feel the ride is better there. That comes from experience while serving on a CG cutter and sleeping in the aft berthing space. This is on the port side of the ship which happens to be where the harbor pilots board so we would briefly hear the pilot boat. It actually served to alert us that we would be in port in less than an hour.
Great cabin and I would choose it again. Read entire member review >>
The balcony was very spacious. It had two lounge chairs, two regular chairs and a small table. It was also beside the outside steps so it was easy to escape the crowds and go to the lanai or the lido. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin was a perfect location. Enjoyed our stateroom and the wrap balcony. We did not experience any noise from the deck above. We had an exit door next to our cabin that we could take to get us up to Deck 11. It was very convenient!! Read entire member review >>
064 is located on the port side of the rear of the ship. No noticeable noise from crew activity except in the morning. At 7 am they start moving deck chairs and you might hear scrapping, but were up anyway so it did not matter. This room adjoins 060 which is convenient as we traveled with another couple. The port side of the ship receives the morning sun when traveling south. We would also recommend you request the port or rear of the ship for dining as sunsets can be quite bright and the curtains will be closed Read entire member review >>
The Veendam deck seven does not go all the way from front to back. You must go from aft down stairs or upstairs to get to the rest of the deck. The stateroom has lots of closet and drawer space. My wife's walker could fit right through the front door without having to close it first just like on Triumph class ships. We did enjoy sitting on our balcony. They brought fresh fruit to us every day. We heard banging from the ceiling every night. We also heard it when sitting on the Lido Deck. Read entire member review >>
We had stateroom 190 on the Verandah Deck. The cabin was spacious and so was the bathroom. The closet was big enough to hang clothes and had shelves for folded items. There was also plenty of room to place suitcases under the bed.
The veranda or balcony was spacious and we enjoyed it very much during the long cruise. The only problem with the stateroom was that the thermostat never worked during the 37 days so the room was always cold. Read entire member review >>
