First off this is a handicapped/accessible room so it was a non-standard layout. The twin or queen bed is near the window, and the sofa which is also a bed is to the left (port side) of the room past the bathroom. There is a small table and dining chairs in the centre of the room with plenty of space to get around everything. I'm going to give the cabin a 4 out of 5 because I was so grateful for a huge oceanview room, when I had booked an interior cabin. However, even though Volendam had come out of dry-dock, this room has not been updated and it has filler to patch the vanity and some odd cosmetic patching in the shower tile. This is not a pretty room, but the carpets looked fresh as did the bedding, and it was spotlessly clean. The shower was amazing, great pressure and a fantastic valve. We had smells in the room twice, once on embarkation of a STRONG curry smell (spray took care of that), and later in the cruise we awoke to the smell of a varnish or paint thinner. I'm not sure if the HVAC system was functioning properly, the smells were only in my room and not in the hallway. Four nights were very rocky and we didn't sleep well. I have not had a forward cabin before, and this is a higher deck. This was probably the biggest issue with the location. I should also mention this is over top the mainstage so you will hear them perform at 10PM and for rehearsals too. It never bothered us, we found it kind of amusing. Read Less

Our cabin was identical to Amsterdam's. There was a ton of storage, and it was spotless. We had a hot water issue which was fixed within an hour. Where our cabin was situated we had no noise of any kind. Our 2 cabin stewards Sarji and David were exceptional and they were rewarded. We loved the towel animals. Some of them even had my glasses on. For a vessel launched in 2000, she is holding up very well. One ongoing complaint is that you have to point your arm skyward to alter the television. Read Less

Cabin was larger than expected. Carpet was a bit 'suspect' in places and the window needed a good clean. There was a small bath which was a bonus!

Our 2 cabins had lots of closet space and a fairly comfortable bed. They smelled like a port-a-potty every day and of our 2 cabins a toilet was clogged every day.

Our cabin was perfectly located. I chose better than I knew. Close to the elevator, but not too close. Laundry down the hall on our side. But the best part? At Skagway and Ketchikan all we had to do to exit the ship was go to the stairs and turn right or left. And at Juneau it was just 2 flights of stairs down. It was also very convenient for getting places on the ship. There was plenty of closet space and we enjoyed having the picture window over our bed. We could see what the weather was without getting up LOL The bed was comfortable. The couch was a bit tired.The bathroom had a tub and was bigger than any I remember on previous cruises. We are low maintenance so didn't have many requests, but our head steward, Eko was delightful and someone knew how to make hilarious towel animals:) Read Less
