If you've been on any of the mid-90s ships - They have 2 categories of veranda cabins- A & B. One the newest ships -that category has just been expanded to A,AA,B, BB -and its ALL location. In the older ships [ prior to 1985, give or take] there seemed to be a lot of very oddly shaped rooms and different configurations. On the newer ships -the only difference seems to be location [ with the exception of stern cabins and cabins at the VERY forward end of the ship] Hope this helps! Anneusa:CO
Other ships have had videotape players in the TVs, and it seems like someone mentioned somewhere that the new Vista class have CD/DVD players. However, the HAL news release of 12/6 talking about the Zuiderdam doesn't mention it.
" In addition to the convenient dataports, all staterooms have a sofa, minibar, double closet with full-length mirror, extra-deep chest of drawers, a safe, hairdryer, telephone with voicemail and computerized wake-up service, multi-channel music system and color television. The rooms also feature individual air-conditioning units to provide personalized climate control for guests. "
Maybe someone who sailed on the 14th will be able to tell us.
In a BB category you look down at the boat tenders.It's just above the promennad deck. A is one deck up with a little better view thats it. We are going on 1/25/03.In a SS suite. Looking forward to it . This is our 5th trip . Two on HAL. Have a great cruise
