Have not been on these two ships, but have always found HAL responsive to specific questions. I would encourage you to contact the Access and Compliance department at 1-800-426-0327 ext. 4514 or e-mail HALW_Access@hollandamerica.com

 

For our first HAL cruise (Ryndam) we contacted them regarding specific bathroom layout info, and requested photos. Within 3 days they had obtained digital photos from the ship (which of course was at sea) and forwarded them to us.

 

You can get some information here as well:

Well, I did write, and was told 2 lounges and a table. Wrong!

We've just returned, and found that it was better than that. Because of the odd shape of the balcony, there was usually a shady spot. There were 2 cushioned chairs, 2 smaller chairs without cushions, and 2 foot rests. One large, round table for dining, and one small round table for drinks. The cushioned chairs were too deep for me, so we called guest relations and requested a lounge. In no time our cabin steward brought one of the cushioned wooden deck lounges and removed one of the cushioned chairs! It was a very comfortable cabin and balcony. Couldn't have been better!

How was this cabin and ship otherwise? Can you give us a more complete report?

 

The latest issue of Cruise/Travel magazine has the Oosterdam as Ship of the Month. There's a photo of an SS cabin. Our cabin steward had told us that our cabin (handicap) was larger than the regular SS cabin. I didn't realize how much larger until I saw that photo! Plenty of room to tool around in your wheelchair. ;-) There's a ramp (built in?) under the carpet to the balcony door. The bathroom entry is level with the cabin, and the shower is HUGE, with a pull-down seat. What we did find strange is that both the toilet and waste basket are in the shower! Of course they both have lids - make sure they're closed before turning on the water! There's also a large tub. The cabin is very comfortable, roomy despite the fact that beside the big bed there's also a sofa bed. There are closets, drawers, and shelves galore, most of which stayed empty - and we bring a LOT of clothes (mostly mine)!

 

If you have any questions, please ask. As to the ship itself, I think you'll do better on the HAL board.

 

Have great cruising!
