2nd Alaskan cruise with HAL By: Choochee face
Very comfortable bed with a sofa and small verandah with comfy sun lounger and chair. TV satisfactory. Mini fridge well stocked with all types of alcohol and soft drinks. Fruits stocked up daily on requests. Ice bucket filled up daily. Rooms serviced very promptly whenever service card was in place. Room staff very polite and friendly. Liked the individual Elemis bath lotion,shower gel and shampoo in its dispenser. Plenty of hangers in the cupboards​ and adequate space for storing your suitcases.

The cabin was an adequate size with plenty of storage. However, it was quite shabby with peeling wallpaper, old furniture with the varnish worn right off the table and the cane unravelling off the balcony chairs. Also, a piece of trim had come off the desk and never been repaired leaving exposed bare chipboard. HAL styles itself as 5 star – well not with these cabins. We’ve had 2 star hotel rooms in better condition. For the first time, we found the bed uncomfortable. We’ve always loved HAL beds but this one was well ready for replacement with a hard ridge down the middle and sagging to the sides. I kept waking with sore shoulders from bracing when the ship rolled to stop sliding to the edge.

Classy and Relaxing By: Yurugaboy
The cabin seems a bit tight at first but it is a great haven.The patio is wide and deep and allows a comfortable chair and footstool. Lots of storage space even for us with Gala dresses and jackets etc. The shower in the tub gives a lot of room and the water comes on hot straight away.We had one blockage with our toilet which was sorted very quickly. Nice drapes, very comfortable bed.but with a noticable gap in the centre. Plenty of room really with hooks, cupboards,table,desk couch etc etc. I'd choose this room area again.Very quiet even though at the back of lifts. Easy to access all parts of the ship.

Cabin 5157

Ok, Not Great By: jim2244
The ship is older so the cabin is smaller than most we've been on. The cabin was clean and it was nice having two closets, his and hers. The safe is very small and my iPad wouldn't fit. Not all our luggage fit under the bed because there are two large drawers with blankets installed under the bed. We had to use closet space to store a carry-on. The toilet didn't work properly for about half the trip. Not sure why I had to make 5 trips to the front desk and finally Guest Relations to get it done. The door to the cabin is finicky and sometimes difficult to open. When we booked our choices were limited but I liked the fact that the cabin his rooms on the decks above and below, there is no cabin or utility door immediately across from the cabin door and the cabin is in on of the extended areas of the ship which was good for viewing. In other words, the ship has some areas that extend further than other areas. It was also on the starboard side which is the side most of the ports and land areas can be seen from.

The beds were comfortable, room was a little tight...plenty of storage....verandah was adequate however, somewhere in the area was being painted/stained and it was not comfortable sitting outside for 2 days because of the odor. The room steward was good.

The cabin was quit. It was at the back of the boat. It was a bit far from the elevators/staircases. I am glad we had the balcony. It made the room feel larger.

Cabin 5142
Feb 2013
Cabin: We thoroughly enjoyed our verandah for 5142. The cabin proper somehow smaller than I remembered but it was in fact very comfortable with more than enough room. Our room stewards, Danang and Gede, were great. They were unfailingly cheerful and efficient, We loved going out on the balcony with its clear plexiglass, comfortable chairs and table/footrest. The cabin had a great location, we thought, because It was close to the dining room, yet not a long way to anywhere on the ship.

We were on the Rotterdam Deck ( 7Th ) The cabin was beside the elevator which we had doubts about but was actually a bonus for ease of getting from deck to deck.

Cabin 4162

Noordam October 2011 By: KJ Aussie
Cabin 4162 was a really good cabin. Located towards the stern on the port side. It was a quiet location, but there was a connecting door. We had very quiet neighbours, but a connecting door can give rise to more noise if you are not so lucky. There was a stewards work area opposite, but did not matter. We were very close to the aft elevators which brought you out to the Lido buffet entrance and just down the stairs to the dining rooms. It was a long way to go forward to the lounges and shops, but good exercise. Everything in our cabin was in good working order, and good condition. The bathroom was good, with one wall shaving cabinet a bonus for keeping things tidy. I don't like showers over the bath though, as the shower curtain is a nuisance. The water could have been a bit hotter at maximum temperature. There were lovely shower gels and shampoo etc in dispensers in the shower. Our veranda space was plenty big enough and we were mostly tied up to face the port view, so plenty to see. I would re book this cabin, no problem.

Our interior suite was rather noisy for our daughters. The veranda suite was fantastic! Of course it was a bit small, but the compartments for storage was very organized and well laid out.

Wonderful Eastern cruise By: Emmaluc1968
Cabin was good. Spacious with loads of storage. Youngest daughter slept of sofa bed which was very comfortable. Small issue with noise at night outside cabin as it is quite close to the elevators and to the service area. Someone regularly vacuumed at 8am every morning which might upset some people but was not really that much of a problem for us. Good central/Aft position on ship.

Wonderful 10 day Caribbean Cruse By: Judilovestocruise
The cabin was just as described on paper and in the picture. It was not too close to anything that would cause a disturbance. The view was very nice. I liked that no one could see you from the cabin above.

Cabin 5006
Jun 2010
We had a VC balcony cabin, there were four of us staying in it. It was crowed with four, three would of fit nicely. The couch became a single bed and there was a pull down over the queen bed. This made it impossible to sit in bed and watch TV. The veranda chairs were very comfortable and the bed was the most comfortable I have been on so far. There is lots of closet space and enough space under the queen bed for four large suitcases.

Cabin 4163

We had a Verandah, which had a balcony. It was a little small for 4 people, but next time we will book a bigger room. Everything was in excellent shape, except some of the cabinet doors were a little loose. The balcony was great, although the rooms on the even side of the ships usually have better views at ports. Our stewards were excellent, as was all service. The room was always clean, and there was almost no wear and tear. I couldn't be happier with the room.

Cabin 5180
Jul 2009
5180 - I knew that this balcony stateroom was very far aft, but I accepted it as an upgrade.  I have been forward on a previous Transatlantic and loved it and was quite far aft for an Alaska cruise which was good.  We did notice the motion more and made good use of the meclazine from the Front Office.  We were never stopped from doing anything due to the slight seasickness but I would choose my cabin further forward in the future.There is only a shower here, but we preferred this as we never bath anyway and a shower is easier to negotiate.  The room was very quiet - at the end of a corridor, with only a stairway across the way (never used by anyone.).

Like so many cabins on cruise ships there were not enough hangers in the closet. The temperature control was either cool or warm, no matter how you adjusted the control. Other than that it was fine.

The Voyage of the Good Nuts By: DillonCruisers
Perfect room except: access to the closets! Inadequate lighting combined with a very narrow hallway, and doors that open towards each other make access for even a slight person almost impossible. What do the 300 pounders do? Location top deck back of ship = longer balcony, great proximity to pool and lido, and top deck for sunning and reading. Potential negatives would be noice from setting deck chairs in the morning for late sleepers. Would book this room again for sure!
