Our cabin was 6186 a Vista Suite with Verandah. It was more than adequate and was serviced very well by our Steward Tommy and his assistant. We had bathrobes, a set of binoculars and an umbrella. The pillows were very soft and the beds were extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a jetted tub and shower and adequate sink space and shelves. The room had more than adequate closets and bureaus for storage. The balcony was large and had a lounge chair and a regular chair. I would recommend a balcony in Alaska since there is so much wildlife and scenery to see throughout the cruise Read entire member review >>
Starboard side - mid ship - horrible, chronic sewer stench made the balcony fully unusable for the bulk of the cruise, despite HAL's valiant attempts to correct and compensate for the problem. Please fix this HAL, so no other passenger is denied full use of the balcony they paid for. Your flagship and her passengers deserve better. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was one of the Vista Suites on deck 6 locate midships. Somewhere between 297-338 square feet including the nice teak decked verandah. Compact bath with whirlpool tub and unlimited hot water - needed to be carful about water temperature since it was really hot. Good closet space and extra storage under the bed for suitcases. At the foot of the bed you could open two large and spacious drawers for seldom worn or used items. Adequate hangars and shelves for clothing and goodies. Safe in room is programmable and sturdy. Combination make up and desk area with 3 sets of drawers and a really large mirror. Lighting was good for reading or relaxing. Couch was large enough to stretch our on for naps or to sleep on if too restless to stay in the king sized bed with very comfortable mattress. Room had two robes and two sets of slippers to wear while on verandah or in room. The room stewards kept the ice bucket filled every evening. Very quiet room. About 25-30 feet down the passageway was the do it yourself laundry room. Read entire member review >>
We always try to get a cabin toward the back of ship to help minimize rocking. 6184 was very convenient location with excellent beds and pillows. We love having a balcony and had the steward open up all the balcony dividers between adjoining rooms and we had four cabins. Read entire member review >>
Suite 7018 is located midship across from the Neptune Lounge. Veranda has a table for 4 & two lounge chairs. My daughter slept on a cot provided by the ship, my son on sofa without opening sofabed. Large closet area with sink & dressing table used as a changing room between suite and large bathroom. Read entire member review >>
HAL brought in a cot for me so I did not have to share a sofa bed with my brother. It was oK I guess... I liked the porch to sit on and the towel animals and the neptune lounge outside our cabin door. Read entire member review >>
Across from the Neptune lounge.. great cabin. Very comfortable bedding, loads of closet space... dressing area... dream cruise room! Mid ship allows less rocking. Only negative I can think of, located under Lido pool area so you heard chairs stacking &/ or kids running and the like... but fine at night. Read entire member review >>
Plenty of closet/drawer space. Comfy bed. Decent seating area. Nice verandah, especially nice when viewing Hubbard Glacier. Really liked make-up mirror and vanity area in the seating area. They provided an extra hairdryer to use there as well. Above the casino could slightly hear some machines, but never when it was time to go to sleep. Midship, quiet area not far from stairs/elevator. Motion did not bother us on our one rough night. Read entire member review >>
Nice balcony. However it was right above the casino and we could hear the constant beepings of the slot machines. very annoying. Also once in awhile the hallway had a sewage smell. Not very pleasant. Read entire member review >>
