Starting in April and going through May, HAL is renaming the some of the cabin Categories.

Thw Pennicale Suite (PS) was formally called the Penthouse Suite

The Neptune Suites (S, SA, SB and SC) were formally called the Deluxe Verandah Suites.

The Neptune Spa Suites (SQ) were formally called the Deluxe Verandah Spa Suites.

The Signature Suites (SS, SY and SZ) were formally called the Superior Verandah Suites.

The Vista Suites (A, B, BA, BB and BC) were formally called the Verandah Suites.

The Vista Spa Suite (BQ) was formally called the Verandah Spa Suite.

Verndah (V, VA, VB, VC, VD, VE, VF, VH) were formally called the Deluxe Verandah Oceanview.

Verandah Spa (VQ) was formally called the Deluxe Verandah Oceanview Spa.

No change in name for these cabin categories: C,CA,CQ, D, DD, E, F, G, GG, H, HH, I, IA, J, K, L, M, MM, N.

I hope that I have gotten all the cabin categories for all the ships.

thanks, I like the new names hopefully this will clear up the questions on who can use Neptune, hope to get my 3rd upsell in a row to go from vista suite to Neptune on Maasdam in april.

Back in 2003 when HAL started the "present" -- now old cabin categories -- there was a lot of confusion.

Wish you luck on getting an upsell. Maasdam doesn't have as many Neptune Suites as the larger ships.

Yes I know you are correct but my last upsell was on Veenedam which I think is same size with same amount of suites, but upsell did cost a little more than when we did it on Zuiderdam. I sure the BB I have will be ok if we cannot get the upsell. Will find out in a month or so.

Maasdam's itineraries are very popular and the majority of the cabins sell out quickly.

We did 25 days on her Febraury 2012 and it was sold out about 2 months before sailing.

Now I understand that HAL is going to start changing more cabin categories. Example -- relettering some of the inside cabins -- changing the popular SC aft cabins on the Vista and Signature class ships to SB so that they can charge more for them.

Thinking now we will not get upsell offer, just 11 days to go, had a grantee “BB” Vista suite and was assigned a “A” couple of cabins from sea view pool. So we are happy with assignment, still would like upsell
