Ryndam Pictures

    I am going to try and post some pictures I took of the Ryndam.

    I took some pictures of the Ryndam and will post them here and explain what they are -- if I can. Wish I had taken more pictures as I missed some areas and a couple of places like the small "hydro" pool and steam I could not get into.

    One of the new areas is the Mix. From reading what was said about it on the Veendam I didn't think we would like it -- but we did.

    This is the main section of Mix:

    In the above picture you see a table -- it has a touch screen which you can view some items or play a couple of games. There are 6 of these tables -- 2 worked all the time -- one worked sometimes.

    This is a picture of a working one:

    You can play checkers, chess, tiles, view pictures of countries, beaches, people, etc; locate cities, one of the tables you can hear music, a couple let you make ribbons -- weird.

    The picture below shows the Piano Bar Section which is right next to the Champagne Bar which was rarely used and I asked one of the waiters if they ever sold any glasses or bottles of champagne from there -- rarely he said.

    The Delux Suites received all new carpeting, drapes and furniture -- colors are all brown and orange. Even the bathrooms were done over (no pictures of the bathroom).

    This is a picture of the balocny -- sorry it didn't turn out well - don't know what happen -- the view sights are terrible -- you can't see over anyone's head.

    Thank you for the great pictures, Yonnie! Some areas are still very recognizable, others (The Mix area, for example) are quite different from my last cruise on Ryndam.

    We last sailed on the Ryndam in 2007.

    The Mix was added this past April when she was in dry dock.

    When I looked at my pictures yesterday -- I see that I missed quite a few new areas.

    Across from the Mix the shop there is now completely open like on the Vista class ships. makes the whole area feel very open and large.

    Marabela has also been added. rarely saw anyone in there buying anything.

    What is The Mix on Ryndam (old Sports Bar) has been redone on Volendam as well. The shops across from it on Volendam are also completely open now, and Volendam has a Marabela as well. Something caught my eye in Marabela - I flirted with it the entire cruise and, well, I bought it. Shall wear it on Crystal Symphony in December.
