Vista Suite with Verandah (B) Cabin Reviews

Noisy, shakes and rattles from thrusters and other ship operations, poor plumbing, overpriced and should therefore be downgraded in cabin category. Location next to "emergency exit" means door slamming noises often (day and night) as crew and other passengers are allowed to (and do) use this exit anytime and not just for emergencies. The door closes with a loud slamming noise as it has no mechanism for a soft closing. The balcony overhang is very wide so the balcony gets very little sun. The cabin and balcony are right under the rear lido deck and public smoking area. There is apparently little or no soundproofing between decks so the noise of scraping (moving) furniture, heavy footsteps and running is a constant. In addition, migrating cigaret smoke from the smoking area above means you won't enjoy your balcony if you don't like smoke. The worst cabin I have ever had on a HAL ship. Read Less

Avoid Avoid at all costs, this Vista suite is over the show lounge, so there is no chance of having a quiet and peaceful lay down in the afternoons as they do the show rehearsals at that time and the noise level is horrific. On other ships we have had cabins over the show lounge but did not have a noise problem like this! The actual shows did not bother us as we always go to the late show. The worst noise appears to come from behind the dressing table and from behind the mini bar on the opposite wall; it could be possible that there are holes in the floor or partition walls to allow the electric cabling to pass through? Or is there a loudspeaker directly under this cabin? The volume is so high you can actually feel the floor vibrate. Also there was a strong smell of dampness out in the corridor. Would not stay in this cabin again even if it was on a free cruise. It might be a good idea to avoid all Vista suites over the show lounge? We made multiple complaints to the front desk but they said they could not move us as the ship was full for the first half of the cruise. However for the second half of the cruise we were able to move to cabin 6228 which was much better. Read Less

Cabin is wheel chair equipped, making it a little wider. Bathroom was renovated, room was not. Furniture and wall paper chipped or marks from being old (has nothing to do with cleaning standards). Lighting was very bad (old energy saving bulbs that only glow yellow) Emergency button is behind the pillow, when I read in bed, the switch went off every night and many times 2-3 times. Balcony is slightly larger as it has a little extra at the aft corner. Very quiet cabin. Read Less

We loved our cabin #6206 - great location and having a private balcony really enhanced our cruise. I felt no ill effects of motion of the ocean being aft instead of mid-ship. One Bonine a day worked great for any seasickness.

We were lucky there were no smokers on either side. The room was in very good shape and we loved our stewards. They were wonderful. We had no complaints about our room and the bed was comfy.

HAL: I really really wish you would eliminate smoking on balconies in at least some sections of the ship or better yet on one entire side of the ship! Please. Get with the times! Smoking is out.

Comfortable and well equipped. Smoking on the balconies is unacceptable for non-smokers.

Dreadful - HAL should be ashamed. Our room was in such poor condition with a huge smashed window that looked like it had been like that for some time; peeling paint; rust marks and the edge of the desk area so badly broken that I scratched and cut my arm any time I sat there. Ended up with a towel over the edge to make it safe but the sharp edges still poked through.

However, the bed was comfortable, pillows ok and bathroom a reasonable size.

QUIET (3 doors down from elevator and stairs). Easy access to Crows Nest lounge (dancing, and great views), the main theater, the spa/gym, and the swimming pool. [But this is an average-size ship, so nothing is far away.]
