Cabins: Staterooms are spacious and comfortable, although fewer of them have private balconies than on newer ships. A new cabin category—Lanai cabins, with a door that directly accesses the Promenade Deck—was added during the ships' latest upgrades. Every cabin has adequate closet and drawer/shelf storage, as well as bathroom shelves.
Suites: Suites have duvets on beds, a fully stocked minibar, and personalized stationery. Penthouse Verandah and Deluxe Verandah suites have exclusive use of the private Neptune Lounge, personal concierge service, canapés before dinner on request, binoculars and umbrellas for use during the cruise, an invitation to a VIP party with the captain, and complimentary laundry, pressing, and dry-cleaning services.
Amenities: GAll staterooms and suites are now appointed with pillow-top mattresses, 250-thread-count cotton bed linens, magnifying lighted mirrors, hair dryers, a fruit basket, flat-panel TVs, and DVD players. Bathroom extras include Egyptian cotton towels, shampoo, body lotion, and bath gel, plus deluxe bathrobes to use during the cruise.
Worth Noting: Connecting cabins are featured in a range of categories. Six staterooms are wheelchair-accessible on Statendam and Ryndam; seven on Maasdam; and eight on Veendam. Nine cabins on each ship are modified with ramps although doors are standard width.
