Default sideways inside cabins on Zaadam

Does anyone have experience with these cabins. I have been offered these on the lowest deck midship. Are they bigger and more comfortable than the regular inside?
Is there a problem with noise in the corridor? Thanks

I looked there but there is only general information even though they supposedly have info for each cabin. When you look at the listing for cabins 1837,1841,1842 which are sidways they show a picture of a regular inside. Unfortunately totally useless information

I believe those cabins are larger than other inside cabins. And seem to be much wider.

We had this type of cabin on the Veendam. It was very roomy. My only complaint was the location of the closets, too close to the door. There was
a lot of floor space, which is very unusual. There was no noise that bothered us. I would book the same cabin again.

I saw the sticky but there are 52 pages and over 1000 posts and a search did not come up with anything. If there is a way to shorten the process I would welcome some advice

We had sideways cabins on the Volendam, great cabins, lots of room, bigger that the regular inside. We had a M and also a K both were excellent. Have booked same again for April cruise from Osaka. Barb.
