Cabin 5065
Nov 2016
Yawn . . . By: highcees
Like the rest of this ship, 5065 is tired and scuffed. The film on the door to the verandah for instance, was BADLY scratched (intentionally, it appeared). The sofa coverings were not fresh. The carpet is extremely unattractive and not at all plush. The desk is the same old same old, not big enough and without adequate plug-ins and lighting. Wall covering is scuffed and scratched, beginning to separate at some seams. And lucky us -- right before the always-daunting Tasman Sea crossing, the lifeboat immediately below our verandah began to shed its canvas covering, ripping and slapping and knocking all the way from Hobart to Dunedin where someone finally put a bungee cord around it. And yes, we DID report it.

Cabin 4054
Aug 2016
We were pleasantly surprised at our room, #4054 on the port side. Our deck gave us great views both straight out and forward. To the rear our view was blocked by life vessels, but we didn’t find that to be an annoyance. Our bathroom was very adequate. The room was quiet – the only thing that ever disturbed me was the slamming of other guest’s deck doors as they went out or in. The room seemed to be neat and clean except for several quarter-size spots along the sides of the bed, and our deck looked like it hadn’t been maintained or even washed and cleaned in quite some time.

Cabin 5054
Aug 2016
Accessible category cabin had larger angled balcony. There was a comfortable queen bed, shower to accommodate disabled persons, and remote control drapes activated by a button on the headboard placed next to the “911 emergency’ button, so make sure you press the right one. The small 19” flat screen TV with side speakers was placed too far to enjoy. The lighting was inadequate, especially on the left side of the mirror. Linens and beddings were of excellent quality. There was no sofabed, only a small round table and two chairs. The hallway was quiet since there were no inside cabins or utility access on the other side. On the balcony we had 2 chairs, ottoman, and a small table. Our cabin stewards Hary and Sri were friendly, hard working and efficient. Turndown service with towel animals and pillow chocolates are still part of the daily routine. On the southbound we had 4069.

Cabin V4131
Jul 2015
It was ok. The bathroom was the appeal as it has bars for the toilet and shower. Walk in shower had a seat as well. Enough space but have to hunt for it. Beds are small and short but comfortable. Dad primarily used his walker so he was able to get around ok. The room was much smaller than I thought. It was functional.

Cabin 5129

Average size room for a balcony. Very close to the aft elevators so there was quick access to the Lido Deck. Quiet room. There is a bathtub in the room, this keeps water from sipping into the floor after taking a shower. Beds were COMFY! There were tanks below us and therefore not a clean view from our balcony, but it didnt bother me too much. The sofa(bed) is a nice touch but I cant imagine three in this room.

Wonderful Cruise By: cabinluvn
Great location as far as access to the main dining room(elevator straight down to deck 2) and the Lido dining(2 stories up the stairs). Located just aft of the first verandah suite, it was more midship than aft. The only negative was that there was two maintenance closets across the hall. One of them was the ice machine and the steward started loading up his ice for the cabins between 6 and 6:30 in the morning. My husband never heard him and I did go back to sleep, so it wasn't a huge problem, but I think if I mentioned it to him, he would have delayed that job for awhile. Standard verandah room with plenty of closet space. Three closets. One with shelves and two with room for hanging clothes. The hanging closets had shelves that were folded down, but could be brought up for placing items on. Bathroom as shelf under the sink and a medicine cabinet. Tub/shower with built in shampoo/conditioner/body wash dispenser and a retractable clothesline

The only complaint is we were surrounded by smokers and could not enjoy our balcony.

Nothing super special By: wgb7428
Located half way between the forward and mid-ship elevators. Good closet space, had fold down shelf if needed more space for long items to be hung. Balcony was too small, overlooked top of lifeboat #3 but didn't effect view. There was some sort of frame on the bed that made it difficult to store suitcases under bed.

Cabin 5055
Jun 2012
As noted before, this was not the best cabin. See my review for notes on the sleeping arrangements for four - problems with the upper coming down over the main bed, as well as trying to get to your balcony when the lower couch is made up. The other problem with this cabin was the balcony. For some reason, the splash back is tremendous. Our balcony looked like it had been sprayed down most of the time. We still used it a lot. It does have the plastic, not the metal, which is good. And there is plenty of room, but you have to deal with water! It is nice to have a full tub/shower combo which is easier to use than the really small showers you usually get, and the Elemis products are nice.

Nice mid ship as I easily become sea sick although I wear sea bands most of the time. Sometimes a little noisy as we were opposite room service galley. Most of the time, in port we were facing away from the port - a good thing in my opinion.

Cabin was adequate, enough room for two, any more and it would be crowded. Bathroom was also adequate.

Would love to have better lighting around the closet area - it's difficult to see inside the safe and even to see the colors of clothing.

HAL is overrated By: alenushka
Cabin is nice for two, too small for three; great closet space; Deck 5 view from the balcony overviews the top of life boats.

Sleepless in Noordam By: marinermari
THis is a VA category cabin, but it doesn't warrant this category as the noise from the Lido Deck outside seating area is VERY intrusive from 5.30am until well after the midnight buffet. Chairs and tables are scraped across the floor above and it sounds as if they are coming through the ceiling disturbing sleep late at night and first thing in the morning. Smoking in adjacent cabins was a BIG problem the corridor outside reeked and we couldn't sit on our verandah because of the smell.

Cabin 5137

Cabin 5137 -- This cabin was a handicap cabin, hence, lots of room to move around; very nice. The balcony was on the starboard side and faced forward, again,very nice. The only negative was a shortage of closet and storage space.

Noordam #5135 was at the end of the indented side of the Noordam toward the back next to a handicapped cabin. The verandah had an angled part that allowed you to look forward. That was one reason I wanted to keep this cabin even though we were offered upgrades. the location was quiet.

Great Cruise on the Noordam By: HHI-Cruisers
Our location was great, with the Spa above us. Overall the room was smaller than Carnival, another foot in width would allow for a different configuration of the furniture so you wouldn't be bumping into things. All in all there was enough space for clothing, luggage, etc.
