The Pride of Rotterdam has several types of cabin available depending on your budget and preferences.

Standard Cabins are the budget option and are ideal if all you need is a bed for the night.
Available as an inside cabin or a sea view cabin, Standard Cabins feature either two or four bunk beds. They come with an en-suite shower and toilet too. There are absolutely no bells and whistles, and comfort is minimal, but this type of cabin is perfect for those travelling on a budget.
Premier Cabins are a mid-range tier of cabins and are similar to the Standard class of cabin. They are fairly basic and are available in a two bed or five bunk option. These are also available as an inside or sea view setup.
For the very best that P&O Ferries has to offer, choose a Club class cabin. These cabins are located in a quiet section of the ship and boast more space as well as amenities to make your journey more comfortable. Expect a colour television, a telephone, fresh fruit, plus tea and coffee making facilities inside the cabin. These cabins offer sea views and are en-suite too.
You must choose a cabin at the time you book your sailing, but if there are any spare cabins available on higher grades during your sailing, you can upgrade for a small fee at reception.
Premier Cabin #10293 Review
I travelled in cabin 10293, a Premium Two Bed Sea View room on Deck 10. As I booked a mini cruise, I had the same cabin on both the outbound and return journeys, meaning I could leave luggage in the cabin during the day.
My cabin was very basic but comfortable. I was surprised to find two beds as I had expected to find bunk beds. The sea view window was handy for docking in the morning, but as it was dark during most of the sailing, there was little I could see otherwise. The en-suite bathroom was compact but functional and very much in line with a cruise liner.
I had an issue with noise, particularly on the outbound sailing. Sound travelled easily, not helped by rowdy teenagers arguing over a girl outside my cabin at 2 am. The return sailing was far quieter meaning I had an unbroken night's sleep.
The cabin shower and sink featured a shower gel/shampoo all-in-one product and soap dispensers. These can help you travel lighter if you are sailing on a mini cruise.
Also, there is no need for an alarm clock as there are announcements made around 1½ hours before docking. These came at around 6 am UK time (7 am CET). While this felt very early, it did afford me plenty of time for a leisurely breakfast and time to pack, ready to explore Amsterdam (or to disembark in Hull on the return journey of course).
