  1. Everything is relative. The Terrace (Lanai) cabins on deck 3 are the same size as all the Oceanview cabins on deck 3. But their layout is different. While the Oceanview cabins have the beds opposite the door under the window, the Terrace have a glass door there. The Terrace cabins have the beds on one side wall with a very small aisle along the other side wall. Here are the sizes of the various cabins: Owners Suite 87 m2 Premiere Suite 36 or 43 m2 Balcony Suite 22-25 m2 Terrace Cabin 20 m2 Oceanview Cabin 20 m2 Inside Cabin 17 m2 20 m2 is the same
  2. Bumping this thread so that the last post is not about another cruise line. Go Fred. Olsen and its’ two new buys.
  3. I’m from Texas, I’ll admit I have never sailed on a Fred Olsen ship under Fred Olsen ownership, but I have sailed on four of their ships when they were known as the Norwegian Dynasty, Norwegian Crown, Rotterdam, and Amsterdam. Here is something every potential cruise customer should know, (1) the cruise line can replace the ship at any time, (2) the cruise line can change the itinerary at any time, and (3) the cruise line can cancel the cruise at any time. Choosing a cruise based upon a specific ship, a specific port, or a specific length of time is a mistake. You should pick a
  4. No doubt the layout differences between a Lanai cabin and Outside cabin contributes to the spaciousness differences. You have a glass door onto the Promenade Deck vs a headboard of a bed under a window at that location. Never-the-less, the sizes of the different cabins are the same. The decision to be made by the customer is whether you want a second door or a window at that location in your cabin. You would prefer a window, others may prefer a door. Is it not nice to have choices?
  5. Several websites indicate the size of Deck 3 outside cabins, including Lanai types, at 197 sq. ft. or 19 sq. m. Sizes of outside cabins of Deck 1 and 2 cabins are listed as the same. Those toward the pointed end, the bow, are smaller, while those with wheelchair access are larger. just about the same can be said about every cabin class. Inside cabins sizes are 182 sq. ft. or 17 sq. m. Veranda deck suites are 229 sq. ft. or 22 sq. m. Navigation deck suites are 386 sq. ft. or 36 sq. m. Penthouse suites are 937 sq. ft. or 88 sq. m. Let's compare that to the Balmo
  6. The large cabin sizes, 25% larger than most at the same type of cabin, will surely spoil future cruisers on these ships. I would not be surprised if FOCL buys the remaining two Rotterdam class ships when HAL decides to sell them.
  7. Come on guys, can’t anyone in Britain travel to Edinburgh and post some decent photos? Fred. Olsen has posted one video of both of them in the shipyard, not sure if it okay to link it here. But it is available on their YouTube site. i was hoping for better photos than a YouTube video.
