Large Ocean-View Stateroom (F) Cabin Reviews

Our ocean view cabin was located on Deck 1, starboard side near the aft elevator. It was comfortable and very roomy after we asked our stewards to separate the double bed into two singles, thus creating a central aisle that gives the cabin an appearance of being larger than it really is. As well as the beds, there is a foldable couch (to make a bed for a 3rd occupant, if required) and a bathroom off to the right as you enter. The bathroom suite includes a bath/shower combination and the usual vacuum toilet, washbasin and storage cabinet. TIPS: the bath tap/shower head assembly was a design we had not seen previously, and getting the flow to divert to the shower took some experimentation. The mixer-tap mechanism includes a temperature control on the right hand side, a flow control on the top, but no obvious means of diverting the flow from the spout to the shower head. Here’s the secret: there is a movable collar around the spout. After you have set the temperature and the flow you want, pull the collar downwards, and water begins to flow from the shower head. The shower stops after you turn off the flow. There is no refrigerator in the cabin, so the mini-bar is just a collection of cans and bottle of Evian water sitting on the dressing table. The safe does not use a numerical keypad; you have to swipe a card with a magnetic stripe to lock and unlock it. In this part of the ship, you will inevitably hear the noise made by the powerful stern thrusters as the ship manoeuvres during docking. These noises don’t bother us, but others may be more sensitive to noise. This is an important consideration when selecting a cabin. In port, people working on the dock can see into cabins on this deck – just be aware! Read Less

This is supposed to be a handicap room. Very tiny. There isn't even a sofa and coffee table. We ended up having to put the mobility scooter in the front office every night for charging (not allowed to leave in hallway). Although the staff was very accommodating this was very inconvenient. Don't accept this cabin if you are using a mobility device. Read Less

Cabin was nice and everything functioned (better than the N GTY we had booked) Lots of closet space but a bit short of drawers. Close to the elevator banks but no noise other than when the ship was tendering (or the hatch was open (mechanism for stairway and hatch almost right below). Got a bit warm towards/around the equator but fortunately it was cool once we got to the coast with the winter fog and all.Window was a bit dirty and that was never washed but then again, there's always sea spray at this level.Toilet did stop working one day but that was fixed relatively quickly (seems it was a system problem in our section).Didn't use the CRT tv other than for outside views and positioning, nor used the DVD player, Read Less

Our cabin on Deck 1 was comfortable for two persons with plenty of storage space. Our cabin was quiet, except when the ship was being maneuvered into port and the thrusters were in use, but there was a sign on the wall about this, so we weren't alarmed. We didn't feel much motion on this lower deck. Read Less

Very spacious cabin on the lowest (Dolphin) deck with unobstructed ocean view and very convenient location just steps from the aft elevators. Fairly quiet location considering it was so convenient to the elevators, we only occasionally heard our neighbors cabin door slam but never heard talking or any other loud noises. There was a faint whine that may have been from the propellers but it was constant and somewhat soothing to sleep to. The lower deck location was a plus when we hit rough seas a few times as I noticed the upper decks encounted much more pronounced swaying and pitching during those times. The bathroom was a nice size and if you like a tub you'll be pleased. I prefer a stand-up shower stall with a door rather than the shower curtains that always let water end up on the floor. The water pressure and supplied bath soaps, etc were very nice and high quality. There was an abundance of storage and closet space as well as a large sofa and coffee table in the stateroom. The beds were comfortable but we had to ask for additional blankets early on when the room was quite chilly at night. They reset the thermostat on the second day however and that seemed to make the A/C adjustments much better. The room decor was typical but everything in the room was in great shape considering the age of the ship. The carpeting had recently been replaced and all the bed linens were high quality. They supplied robes which was a nice treat. Read Less
Zaandam with teens! : Cabin 1958

1958, no significant problems. The window was dirty, you could see a bit through half of it, the other half too cloudy to really see anything. Very quiet location near the end of the hall. Almost no foot traffic. Felt some vibrations ... Read More
1958, no significant problems. The window was dirty, you could see a bit through half of it, the other half too cloudy to really see anything. Very quiet location near the end of the hall. Almost no foot traffic. Felt some vibrations when docking, but nothing serious. Plenty of closest space for four. Main beds very comfortable, sofa bed not that great. Read Less

Our cabin was pretty spacious, with a large window, sofa, coffee table, vanity table and chair. The bathroom was roomier than on other cruises, and having a tub was nice (though realistically, I couldn't see myself squeezing into that small tub). There was tons of closet space in our cabin! The bed and linens were very comfortable, although truthfully, two twin beds put together will never feel like one big queen bed. It's just hard to have that big crack in the bed, you know? Read Less

Smelled awful. But it was bigger than expected. While close to the elevators the noise came from the Stewards elevator and service area.
