Review In Brief
Every Nautica Veranda Stateroom has elegance and style, as well as a private teak veranda with outdoor furniture. However, by the standards of today's premium ships the Nautica Veranda room is compact.

Nautica Veranda Stateroom Review
The Nautica Veranda Stateroom looks great – especially the cool azure and teal tones. There are also dark wood highlights too. In addition, floor-to-ceiling glass doors fill the room with natural light.
There is a small sitting area as well as a writing desk. However the room is compact. Indeed it measures just 20 sq. m. / 216 sq. ft. including the 3.7 sq.m. / 40 sq.ft. veranda.
Position and layout
The Nautica Veranda Stateroom is the most popular type of room onboard. In fact, there are 110 of them spread across decks 6 and 7. It’s also worth noting that the rooms on deck 7 have enhanced amenities and services, these are called Concierge Level Veranda Staterooms.
The Nautica Veranda room layout is typical. There is a small entry hall with a closet on one side and a bathroom on the other, and beyond this is a bedroom and sitting area as well as a teak veranda.
The Nautica Veranda room living space
The living space in the Nautica Veranda Stateroom is well designed. Indeed, the cool tones and smart decor improve the sense of space. The clever use of mirrors make it feel even more roomy.
There is a queen-sized bed with 1,000-thread-count linens, just like the Nautica Penthouse Suite. On either side of the bed are also night stands with plenty of room for storing personal items. In addition, there is a handy bedside clock.
In the sitting area there is a cozy 2-seater sofa as well as a coffee table. There is a writing desk which can also be used as a vanity area. The Nautica Veranda room has a small flat screen TV together with a DVD player too.
The bathroom in the Nautica Veranda room is also compact, but it is very functional. There is plenty of storage space on the shelves both above and below the vanity. The bathroom also has a makeup mirror and the lighting is excellent. It also has top quality Grohe taps as well as Bulgari bath products.
Private teak veranda
I think the teak veranda adds a real touch of class. It has two reclining deck chairs as well as a small cocktail table. So the veranda is the perfect place to sit back with a good book and watch the ocean drift by.
Storage in the Nautica Veranda Stateroom
A single closet has hanging space, drawers and shelving – so in our view storage space is a bit limited. On shorter voyages this shouldn’t be a problem, but on longer sailings when you pack more clothing it may be an issue. We also noted that large luggage does not easily fit under the bed.
