3365 – Amsterdam

The bathroom is smaller than it was — the distance from the door to the opposite wall is shorter by at least six inches, maybe more. That leaves far less storage space for the shelf under the sink, which may not be an issue on a shorter cruise but on the World Cruise we bring a lot of toiletries that we like to store on that shelf. The shorter distance is reflected in that the edges of the sink counter/vanity are angled.

The wall-mounted hair dryer is gone but there is still an electric outlet.

And I am not a fan of the “rain” showerhead, which is a hand held from the wall. A rain showerhead is nice if it comes from the ceiling, but it doesn’t have the power to come from the wall so one ends up standing very close to the wall. Also, the showerhead is too big to easily handle as a hand held.

The new bathroom looks very nice but the old one was more functional in my opinion. The tub has been removed and replaced with a walk in shower. The hair dryer on the wall was removed but there is still a shaver outlet. The medicine cabinet has been replaced with shelves.

Being on the Lower Promenade Deck, Cabin 3365 is slightly smaller than other outside cabins as evidenced by the fact that it has a Love Seat instead of a full Sofa. It does, however, have an excellent location. It is the first room forward of the mid-ship stairs on the Starboard side, with the small winding staircase between Decks 3, 4, and 5 providing easy access to the Pinnacle Grill, Piano Bar, Explorations Café, and the Explorers’ Lounge. Just one deck up and a short walk down the hall are the Front Office (forward) and the dining room (aft). The self-service laundry is down the hall near the atrium (forward). The cabin has quick access to the outside deck on either side of the ship.

The view from the window is pretty good although you do see the bottom of the Tender Boat and there is a metal ladder in the middle of the view. Because the cabin is located by the Tender, you will hear the noise of the boat being lowered at Tender Ports (sometimes fairly early in the morning).

Also, when the Lower Promenade is crowded, people will obstruct the view. They cannot see into the cabin during the daytime, but you must remember to close the curtains after dark.

At the desk, there is one 3-prong 115 volt outlet and one two-prong 220 volt outlet. A two-prong hair dryer is located in the desk drawer. An alternative hair dryer is available on the bathroom wall, which also has a two-prong 115 volt outlet for shavers. A bottle opener is attached to the bathroom wall.

As for the door to outside Deck 3, we haven’t noticed any slamming. The doors have been taped off when it was very windy. I would imagine that procedure varies with the captains (how bad it must be before the doors are taped off).
