Cabin choice Amsterdam - NEED ADVICE QUICK!!!!!

Recommended Posts

If you could choose between two category D cabins on Amsterdam on Dolphin Deck (deck 1) -either 1840 or 1844 near the forward elevators/main atrium and 1875 near the mid elevators which would you choose and why????  I'm currently in 1875, but considering moving to 1840 or 1844.

 

Any advice appreciated!

I would pick 1875 only because it is midship.  You are already half way to where you are going, be it the rear for MDR or front for the theater.

With three quick replies all reaffirming my original cabin choice of 1875, I will stay put :)

 

Many Thanks!

The only advantage might be that usually the dock is on the even side of the ship in Juneau but I am not sure which side has a better view or how it docks in the other ports.

But how much viewing will you do from a Dolphin deck OV?

So it might be better to be in 75 as you can watch the planes take off and the crew practice with the life boats.

I wouldn't be doing that from a low OV either!  😀

We won't be spending a ton of time in the cabin but the areas closer to the main atrium/fwd elevators are probably the set of spaces we will use the most - Ocean Bar, Atrium Terrace, Main Theater, Guest Services, Crows Nest, Dive-In, Thermal Suite in Spa, Casino, etc.  Not to mention you usually go ashore from the forward gangway at most ports.  That's why I was thinking 1840 or 1844 might be better choices for us.

Stayed in 1889, was good, 1875, will be the same, but you're right that 1844 get you close to the gangway, on the other side, room sizes are the same..

After deciding to not change me mind, welllllllll, I changed me mind and moved to 1844 - I'd rather be nearer the fwd stairs/elevators and Atrium.  Will be easier to orient Mum from there too so.

I think you might be splitting hairs so you'll be good in both cabins.  One nice thing about the forward cabins is that the gangway was always deck 2, forward when we were on the Amsterdam a few weeks ago.  The only time we ever encountered crowds were the first 30 minutes when we arrived to a port.

 

FYI, you can access the forward decks very easily on the Amsterdam - I made a video showing how.

There's an easier way just going to the bow on Promenade Deck (deck 4). No need to go outside and climb steep stairs. Just head straight out on the same level.
