Two lower beds convertible to 1 king-size bed, bathroom with dual sink vanity, full-size whirlpool bath, shower and additional shower stall, large sitting area, dressing room, private verandah, 1 sofa bed for 2 persons, floor-to-ceiling windows. Approximately 500â€“712 sq. ft. including verandah.
Our cabin - We upgraded from a SY (Signature Suite) to an SA (Neptune Suite - 7062) a week before sailing and are SO glad we did! The suite was a decent size, the bed was extremely comfortable, and the cabin stewards always made sure the room looked perfect. The suite gave us access to the Neptune Lounge which was directly across the hall. We popped over to the lounge a few times during the day to get coffee, juice, and sample the wonderful horsedouvres. The lounge concierge was always very eager to help and definitely made our trip even more special. The complementary guest laundry and dry cleaning also worked out well and came in very handy. We will most likely always book a suite with similar amenities from now on as they are well worth the expense! Read entire member review >>
The suite was spacious and comfortably appointed. The bed was exceptionally comfortable. There was more storage than we could have possibly used....drawers, closets, shelves, all in plentiful supply. Being midships afforded us a silky smooth voyage.
The steward service was top-notch. Ever present and attentive, but virtually invisible. The Neptune Lounge was a comfortable escape, and the accompanying concierge was a wonderful perk. Read entire member review >>
We absolutely loved our cabin. Very comfortable, roomy and met every need we had. Location adjacent to the Neptune Lounge was a real plus for that early morning Cappuccino. Read entire member review >>
During dry dock the suites have been renewed. The new suites are really great. Large space to move around even when the couch was extended as a bed. There were four in our room and we had lots of space. A full bath (jacuzi) and a separate shower so parallel showering takes up less time. A separate dressing room / walkin closet.

The A/C in the cabin worked now and then. The toilet did not flush so we have to us public one. The shower falsest had to be replaced because only hot water came out. The refrigerator did not get cold just one thing after another. Read entire member review >>
Nicely done refurbishment with soft sheets and bedding, and calm colors. Having the Neptune Lounge right across the hall was a HUGE convenience - we enjoyed the amenities and the staff (Niina and Carol) and were there often for snacks or information. Read entire member review >>
We were in Neptune Suite 7048, located just aft of the Penthouse Suite on the port side of the ship. The location is perfect, as it is only 5 cabins from the Neptune Lounge, and just three floors down from the Crow’s Nest, where we spend much of our evenings enjoying happy hour. We had originally booked a veranda cabin on the back of deck 5, but were offered an upgrade a couple of weeks before the sail date, and took advantage of it. The cabin measures approximately 22 feet long and 22 feet wide, with a wall separating the bathroom, entry area and dressing room. It has a king size bed (or two twins, whichever you prefer), two nightstands, a couch, two end tables, a coffee table and two chairs. There is a desk area that has plenty of storage. There is a small TV that is on the desk that swivels to face the couch or the bed. There are cabinets and closets for storage, as well as about 12 drawers. This ship will be in dry dock in April, and the suites will be gutted and remodeled. I look forward to seeing it again in September 2017, when we will be on this ship for our Mediterranean cruise.
The balcony is about 22 feet wide and 8 feet deep. On the balcony are two armchairs with ottomans, a small table between them, and a patio table with four chairs around it. Read entire member review >>
The suite was well appointed and in good condition with little signs of wear and tear. However in our case the added cost was not worth it, especially as the suite had a creaking ceiling which no one could be bothered fixing....it should not be necessary to have to use earplugs to get a good nights sleep. The room service staff did do an excellent job. Read entire member review >>
Smaller than similar category staterooms on other vessels. Bathroom is nicely appointed but not as well laid out as on other ships. If you don't use the Neptune Lounge when you book a suite, then the upgrade is not worth it. Read entire member review >>
This is a perfect location about mid-ship and included the Neptune lounge as well as all the suite special services which we will do on our next cruise - well worth the $$$ on Holland Read entire member review >>
Deluxe Verandah Suite 7065 is located right next to the Neptune Lounge on the starboard (right) side of the ship. The room is very well laid out and gives you lots of storage options. The refigerator is almost completely taken up by a mini bar. There is a sit down bathtub with Jacuzzi jets and a shower head. Next to the bathtub is a standup shower. Our standup shower had a little water leak due to some missing stripping, but they were working on repairing it. There are double sinks in the bathroom and plenty of space. I did not see a 110 plug in the bathroom, so you may need to bring a power strip to run in there. The hair dryer is advertised as being salon quality, but if you really style your hair with a blow dryer, you may want to bring you own.
Watch your step going out on the verandah....there is about a 5" lip that you can trip over. There is a makeup area right outside the bathroom door with a makeup mirror and cotton balls. There is a large mirrored backing on the wall with the head of the beds. The balcony furniture is nice and the table has just been replaced. The curtains keep the room very dark in the morning despite the early Alaska sunlight. The television swivels so you can watch it from anywhere in the room. Very limited channel selection...TNT, ESPN 1 & 2, HBO, FOX, CNN and THE CARTOON NETWORK, along with ship controlled channels for marketing.
The balcony curtains are showing some cracking on the back side which is exposed to the sun.....but no big deal. Nice room. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8147. SA cabin with Neptune Lounge privileges. Located directly under the Aft pool area of the Lido deck. Very large balcony. On two occasions ha beer cans on our deck from above. Some noise from Lido deck but not bad. TV location, on the desk beside the bed, is very difficult to see when in bed. If possible, should be relocated to beside the couch at the foot of the bed. Mattress was very comfortable with lots of pillows. No real complaints. Read entire member review >>
Six good sized closets, plenty of additional storage. Great view, not too far from the Neptune, close to the elevator. Very quiet room, didn't realize we had neighbors on either side until the last day! Above the life boats, so we had a great view. Had nice views in all ports as well. Read entire member review >>
7001 is right under the superstructure for the bridge and some view of the sky is effected. Worse is the way the wind whips around the superstructure and screams/roars/wails into the cabin. Assume cabin on opposite side of ship as well as those forward cabins on decks below Rotterdam are likewise effected.
Otherwise, it's a hike from anywhere but that means no hallway traffic or noise. Just made you think twice about returning to cabin to get a forgotten item or leaving cabin without making sure you had everything you needed! Read entire member review >>
SA suite on Deck 7 aft, starboard. Great closet space, 2 each. Chairs and couch are more for looks than comfort, had to use pillows because we are not 6 feet tall. Chairs and table and chairs and footstools on the balcony, we would rather have had loungers. Furniture is showing its age with many stains (not bed). Bed fantastic, also extra storage there. Tub and Extra shower very nice. Read entire member review >>
This deluxe veranda suite was amply sized but worn and threadbare. The leather on the chairs had worn away and the sofa had seen many better days. The bed and bedding is extremely comfortable. The entire cabin is in desperate need of refurbishing. The veranda is large and comfortable, the bathroom nice size but the stall shower, fitted with a shower curtain is so tiny you can't bend in it. The shower in the tub was much better. The surfaces are old fashioned moulded plastic. The cabin is in a comfortable location and quiet. it is aft of the Neptune Lounge, but not far enough way to be a problem. The towels were so worn, they almost were worn thin! The shower gels and shampoo and conditioner were in dispensers in the shower, which I didn't particularly like but it was not offensive. The cabin was very clean... just very worn out.

Furnishings/decor a little tired.Small closet for a suite.Minimal drawer space.
Good bathroom.Fantastic balcony.Long walk to everywhere on ship except Lido cafe.Very quiet cabin. Read entire member review >>
Our cabin left nothing to be desired. My husband, myself and our two children found that there was more than enough room for all of us. The cabin highlights were the bathroom, verandah, closet/storage space and a dressing area. The bathroom had two showers, a jacuzzi tub and two sinks. The verandah was large enough to allow for a table with four chairs and two lounge chairs with ottomans. There were a total of six closets three had mirrored doors and the overall storage space left us (for the first time ever on a ship) with empty cabinets. One of my favorite features of the room was the dressing area with a dressing table and lighted makeup mirror. My husband and I also enjoyed the location of the desk, which was located directly under the picture window. In the morning I enjoyed sitting at the desk, sipping a cup of coffee while watching the ship arrive in port. Read entire member review >>
We were in a deluxe verandah suite (7048). As I had read, it was definitely worth the extra cost. We needed the room with a play pen and all of us in there using the balcony. It was quite spacious. The balcony was great, the room location was very quiet, and just a few doors down from the Neptune Lounge (the exclusive lounge for suite/penthouse guests). There was tons of closet and drawer space. The bathroom had a tub and separate shower. There were double sinks. There was also a separate vanity area. The couch, which pulled out into a bed, was not comfortable. It was very deep and the cushions did not fit into it well, which meant that they kind of sloped down. It was difficult to sit on. The throw pillows need to be thrown! There are several amenities that come with staying in the suites, too many to list. Besides the space, the use of the Neptune Lounge and personal concierge were the most important. We dealt with one person for all our needs. Read entire member review >>

Suite with excellent ammenities and large sitting area. The bathroom is very large with two sinks, a jacuzzi tub and separate shower. There is a well-lit dressing room with more than enough closet space. The veranda is large enough for two lounges and a table with chairs. Read entire member review >>
Cabin SA 7080 is a lovely cabin in the middle of the ship. It's an easy walk to the neptune lounge and to the dining room. Also - the balcony is more private than those SA's adjacent to the midship exterior elevators or the SB's near the rear elevators. Read entire member review >>
Dexluxe Verandah Suite was awesome! Spacious,luxurious and very clean! We loved it and I never wanted to leave the room. Just wish they had normal CNN (instead of International version) and the Weather Channel since we could get almost no news about the hurricanes hitting home while we were gone.
