Nieuw Amsterdam HH 4127 Fully Obstructed but not really

Recommended Posts

We just returned from May 7-14, 2016 Alaska cruise on the Nieuw Amsterdam. We decided to book a fully obstructed cabin, knowing we just need to see some daylight in our room and would be on other decks of the ship a lot.

 

We were pleasantly surprised with our view in HH 4127:

This is at the back of a lifeboat. Note that there are three taller tenders on each side of the ship that would obstruct your view further.

 

The window is floor to ceiling but does not open.

 

Hope that helps a future cruiser in this type of cabin.

 

Cheers!

Thinking of booking this cabin!  Any other pictures or comments about 4127 (fully obstructed) on the Nieuw Amsterdam would be appreciated.  Besides the view, how was the location?  Convenient?  Quiet or noisy? 

 

Thanks.

Please also post on halfacts.com  Thanks.  Wow!  Super large window.  Some obstructed cabins aren't that bad.  We've booked on Zaandam, H category (obstructed), which is at the back of the ship with access to a large aft outdoor area.  Our only obstruction, according to pictures on halfacts, is a staircase railing.  Not bad.

I just saw a picture of the twin of 4127 (4130) on halfacts.  Since it is right next to a balcony cabin that sticks out past the window, you can see the balcony next door.  If people are on the balcony, you would be able to see them.  And, they could see into your cabin - especially at night?

We were in 4130. (DH took the halfacts pics.)  We liked the cabin location because we prefer being on the "food end" of the ship, and it was quiet.  We never saw the neighbors in 4132 out on their balcony - either they didn't use it or they stayed in the corner by the door - but I would think that's not the norm.  Yes, if we stood right by the window they would have been able to see us, but since sofa and desk were on the hall side about the only time we were next to the window was getting in or out of bed. We closed the drapes at night anyway.

... or maybe we just didn't spend much time looking out our window   😊
