Has any one had an oceanview room midship on Deck One on the Rotterdam? Was it noisy?  What could you see?

Deck one is not noisy... it's the bottom most deck with cabins, and actually quite quiet.  Your second question I think must be a joke, right? Um... it's an Ocean View... 🙂

Stateroom 1828 (oceanview) was nice & quiet last month....very convenient to the forward elevators, and no movement to speak of.  I prefer that area to midship, for a number of reasons.  On a small ship like Rotterdam, everything is so close, the stateroom location is less significant in my opinion.

We' ve had several OV' s on Dolphin deck. We prefer to be midships. The further you go aft the more chance you will have of being closer to the bow thrusters which can cause some noise and vibrations during docking . 

Also take in consideration that he cabins towards the front ,especially near the stairway to A-deck , can have some noise ( people going down the stairs or congregating in the stairwell ) and cold ( if sailing in colder weather of course 😉 ) when the gangway is located on A-deck forward or when tendering. 

 

Other than that they are great cabins, looking out the windows and seeing the waves close by.

The "bow" thrusters are located near the bow which is forward!  Aft vibrations would generally be coming from the props.  We actually love cabins near the bow.  The thrusters are a great alarm clock telling us that the ship is getting close to docking and its time to get up :).

You're right ! I meant the stern thrusters  ☺️. They do make a lot a vibrations, just sit in in the MDR while docking and all the glasses etc. rattle like crazy .
