The cabin was fine. Booking was a little odd. When we booked this through Holland America the agent suggested that we book the cabin as a "run-of-the-ship" booking, so that we would be guaranteed a room of this category, but we would be able to have an upgrade possibility. Well, when you do this, you do not get a room assigned until 7-10 days BEFORE departure! Lots of storage space for a 20 day cruise. There are no passenger-use laundry facilities- you have to use the ship's paid service. Read Less

The rooms are small but adequate. The setee (used as an extra bed for a third guest, I assume) was not particularly comfortable and was looking a little tired and worn. The bathroom was very clean and in good order. Our cabin attendant, Putu, did an excellent job - above average and he went beyond what I expected. He truly made a difference in our cruise. Read Less

CABIN LOCATION We booked this cruise in October 2015, BEFORE we had any first-hand experience of the Nieuw Amsterdam, and for our Alaska trip we decided to book a cabin with a verandah. We booked cabin 8157 which is located on the starboard side aft. With hindsight we should have booked a cabin on the port side, because our cabin was located immediately below the open-air smoking area set aside for nicotine addicts on deck 9. The weather in Alaska was cool and often wet, so that kept many people away from the smoking zone, but we were still subjected to fumes. TIP: the ceilings of cabins in the aft part of deck 8 are suspended from deck 9 itself, so we would occasionally hear heavy footfalls or some crew activity as they moved deck furniture around. We imagine this would be much more noticeable in a warmer climate (the Caribbean or the Mediterranean) at all times of day because there will be more people on deck. Consequently, if we decided to book a verandah cabin for a future trip we would select one on the port side and on a lower deck. CABIN LAYOUT This is perhaps best described as awkward. We are not seniors with mobility difficulties, and we are of normal size, but the layout of the cabin entry way left much to be desired and we actually preferred the layout of our inside cabin during our Panama Canal trip. These are some of our observations: the cabin door opens inwards onto a narrow entry way, while the bathroom door (located immediately inside the cabin on the right hand side) opens outwards into the same narrow area, so there is a potential for collision here if someone enters the cabin at the same time another person is emerging from the bathroom. We were surprised at this design, because it seems to be created to encourage injuries rather than prevent them. The main storage spaces (wardrobe and clothes closets, and the small safe) are located on the left hand side of this narrow entry way opposite the bathroom (Note: left/right may be reversed in the port side cabins) and again, when opened these doors can interfere with the bathroom door and the main cabin door. We discovered that it was really impossible for two adults to occupy the narrow entry way simultaneously, even when entering or leaving the cabin. Illumination in this area is poor. TIP: check the deck plans and cabin layouts CAREFULLY, before you commit to booking. Read Less

Cabin was very nicely appointed and everything worked... We could have had a few more drawers but that is always the case...The attendants were very attentive and friendly.. we had everything we needed...Thank you!! The cabin was below the galley so the first night was a bit noisy during the night but after reporting it , it was okay. I also bought earplugs that helped.. We would do it again.. Very Interesting scenery and loved the Glaciers!! Read Less
