Two lower beds convertible to 1 queen-size bed, bathroom with dual-sink vanity, full-size whirlpool bath & shower & additional shower stall, large sitting area, , private verandah, 1 sofa bed for 1 person, floor-to-ceiling windows. Approximately 372â€“384 sq. ft. including verandah.
Zuiderdam's suite offers a lot of space and storage. Great location in the middle and easy access to the pool and common areas. However, the 8th floor is to avoid due to the noise from the pool areas which could be disturbing early morning and when you are on the balcony. Read entire member review >>
This cabin is directly under the ping pong table on the Lido deck. Lots of noise associated with the table moving and the people jumping and stomping while playing. Since this was a cruise to Norway in the summer, daylight hours lasted well into the night and people played late. We are early risers so we were up by the time people started playing in the morning. Sounds were somewhat muffled, but were somewhat distracting. If you go to bed early or like to sleep late, I would not recommend this cabin. Read entire member review >>
Recently redone, the cabin was very pretty and well appointed. Very comfy bed, high quality linens. The bathroom was a good size and had both shower and jacuzzi style tub. Large tv with streaming movie and tv programs, as well as ship info display. Everything was clean and comfortable. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large enough with plenty of storage but was filthy, dated and worn. There was even food and other rubbish on the grubby carpet when we arrived. I had to spend quite a bit of time cleaning chairs etc before we could use them. Nothing was cleaned whilst we were in there - not even a vacuum of the carpet. Read entire member review >>
Awful! big crack and huge hole in the base of the bathtub, chuck of tile missing in floor, towel rack out of reach. Safety hazard on threshold to verandah. Carpet torn in several places. Baseboards missing from two walls. Stains on walls. Dents and marks on walls. Configuration of the room awful. No coffee table. Mattress gave me a terrible back ache every night.

This cabin is toward the back of the ship, and is right before the hallway juts and the cabins get smaller. Because of this, the room juts out to allow for the turn and the room is larger and the balcony is larger. Our friends were next door and the steward was able to open up the divider for the duration of the cruise. Wang was our attendant and he did an excellent job. This room had a ton of storage, we didn't even use all of it. It was very close to the rear elevators, under the Lido deck, yet extremely quiet. It was very easy to pop up a flight of stairs and grab a cup of coffee or an omelet. Read entire member review >>
Cabin was very spacious for the 3 of us. The balcony was double the size of a regular balcony. The big plus is the size of the bathroom. Double sinks, whirlpool tub and a separate shower. More than enough space to put 3 peoples clothes and toiletries. Read entire member review >>
This cabin was wonderful! Larger than others in that category due to its location with a veranda that had a table and chairs along with two roomy rattan armchairs with ottomans for soaking up the sun or just relaxing. I enjoyed several afternoons eating lunch there while keeping my feet elevated. The bathroom was exceptionally roomy with a 10 foot double sink with an equally large mirror, 2 medicine cabinets and a 10 foot shelf underneath and as the topper, a whirlpool tub and a separate shower. The whirlpool tub was a life saver with getting the swelling and edema out of my legs and feet in time to get shoes on for dinner. The decor was admittedly retro but lovely with tremendous storage for 2 women with 4 large suitcases packed to the gills. We were very pleased with it. Read entire member review >>
Nice size (signature suite) with plenty of room, balcony with 2 lounge chairs, 2 deck chairs and a table, small television, badly faded sofa, bath room with separate shower and jaccusi tub, 2 sinks and a sometimes workable toilet. We heard that the ship is going into a much needed dry dock next year. Read entire member review >>
SS superior suite: plenty of closet space for 2 people. If no adjoining room-even more closet space. Only heard noise from the Lido deck one time ( cart being pushed through). Very quiet at night. Port side is the best side for viewing during most ports. Very close to the back stair case ( or elevators) for a 1 floor dash up to the Lido or back pool area. Read entire member review >>
- Room: Was a bend room. Loved it! I don't know the exact square footage but it looked and felt larger than the other SS rooms we saw. The bend where the balcony and room stick out meant the table and chairs weren't in between the bed and sofa. The little extra corner made for more open floor space which made the room feel much more spacious.
- Quiet Room. no noise from hallway or upstairs lido
- awesome closet and drawer space for storage
- bathroom double sinks, separate shower and bath!
- had a desk and a make up area with chairs.
- leather couch, coffee table and side chair.
- The balcony was great as well. We usually had sun and shade so it was never too hot. Great Breeze. It had a table, two chairs and two cushioned chairs with ottomans. from the bend you can see on to most of the forward balconies on your level and below, but the only time people can see on to other balconies is when they are standing at the rail. If you're sitting down you can't see the other balconies and they can't see you. Read entire member review >>
Navigation deck 8, port side, midship - 2nd door aft of the central elevators. Lido was just above - noise not a problem as you are underneath the very beginning of the Lido seating area. The balcony overhang is larger on this deck, providing good weather protection but not providing lots of direct sun unless facing the rising or setting sun (I prefer the overhang, which allows the balcony to be usable 24-hours, even in rain or heavy spray days). Cabin has lots of storage room - two desks, two chairs, drawers in both desks, both bedside dressers. Storage shelves beside the couch, above the minifridge, and in the closets. 3 separate closet sections all which have convertible shelves or hanging space. Large couch suitable for seating 3, also convertible to a bed. Large bathroom with two sinks, two medicine cabinets, lots of space around the toilet, a jetted tub with shower and a separate standup shower. Excellent location! Read entire member review >>
8089 is a SS (Superior Suite) category cabin on starboard deck 8, located slightly aft of mid-ship under the Lido restaurant area. The location is quite good, and despite being underneath the Lido, there was little noise from that area. Overall this cabin would be very roomy for 3 persons and includes a makeup dresser area, a seating area with a sofa-bed, coffee table and two chairs, a desk / tv area. The Balcony is an extra wide that has room for a two chair cafe table and two lounge chairs with ottomans. The bathroom has double wash basins, a separate shower stall, and whirlpool tub/shower combo. The tubs are small, so don't get your hopes up - it is one person (normal sized - if your tall or big you might be tight). HAL has recently started putting the Elemis shampoo, shower gel, and conditioner in dispensers in the shower/tub areas. I actually like this better than dealing with the small hotel bottles and it is likely more Eco-friendly as well. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 8060 superior suite SS. Plenty of room. Nice large bathroom with plenty of room for toiletries and a large shelf for beach gear beneath the double sink. Good location mid-ship near elevator and stairs, great to zip up to the Lido and pool. Read entire member review >>
SS8088 Great cabin. 1 less closet because its an adjoining room. Bed and pillows were the best. Cabin is high up so no one looks down on your balcony. Didn't hear any noises from above. The cabin was towards the back of ship, but I like the extra walking. Big sliding glass doors made sitting inside and looking for whales easy(plus window above the desk). Mini frige was nice to keep our water and pop cold(we had steward take away contents). Very clean bathroom with separate shower and whirlpool tub. Double sink with 2 medicine cabinets and shelf space underneath. Couch was used for naps and for just relaxing. Balcony was large enough for table and 2 chairs. And 2 bigger chairs w/foot rests and small table b/w. Very, very happy with the room. Read entire member review >>
The Superior Verandah stateroom was excellent. More than enough storage, lighting, room to move around, especially on a longer cruise. The bathroom was so nice, plenty of room for two if necessary. Used the whirlpool tub several times. Read entire member review >>
My cabin was very spacious. The closet space was more than adequate. The bathrooms was huge by most cruise ship standards. Having a double sink and a tub and separate shower was a pleasant surprise. Read entire member review >>
Good size; great balcony, small closet, lots of drawers and cupboard space, quiet except for the air exchange system which ran all the time no matter what temperature you chose. Took some getting used to during the night. Bed and pillows very comfortable; bathroom and excellent size and well equipped. Read entire member review >>
Nice room although a little dated. There was a strange, spongy dent in the floor at the foot of the bed with a square of carpet patched over it. The bathroom seemed large however the shower was tiny; we're both very slim and just barely fit into it. We would have used the shower in the tub but found there was no hot water there. There was a slight "outhouse" smell coming from the toilet. Too much furniture in the room; we put one of the chairs on the balcony and that made a big difference. Nice teak balcony with comfortable faux wicker furniture. Read entire member review >>
