This is not a brand new ship, so the cabin did show some wear and tear, but overall, we had a great balcony stateroom with lovely views especially at sunrise and sunset. It was also a good size. The cabin stewards offered excellent service, like all the other HAL stewards we met in the past. Read entire member review >>
4001--Noisy more noisy than adjacent cabins due to proximity to cruise area. Solid (non-glass) balcony. No wind break on the forward side of balcony which helps with the view but makes it colder and windier. Only a shower in the bathroom.4003--Solid (non-glass) balcony--only a shower in the bathroom.4004--Solid (non-glass) balcony--only a shower in the bathroom. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was 4005, balcony level. Storage space very good, bathroom well designed, bed excellent, generally quiet and comfortable except for Glacier Bay visit when the normally closed outer-door to the foredeck was opened to allow passengers to get an unimpeded view of the Marjery glacier. The cold wind flowing down the corridor chilled everything in its path.
The "towel animal" creations were delightful. Our steward was always friendly and obliging. Read entire member review >>
although the deluxe verandas cabin on the web pages do not look like the one we got. They were roomy enough with ample space to store your belongings and move around without bumping into each other. The balcony was only two chairs (one with a cushion)and a small round table to hold a cup or glass and a foot stool.
I did however manage to get a great tan there :-) Read entire member review >>
