Thanks for the correction. We are on Veendam in a few weeks and Oosterdam in October and got the ships mixed up. Would love to hear about the Oosterdam dry dock but guess it should be listed on a new thread instead of Veendam. Thanks again.

I don't know if this is a good place to ask, but I was wondering if the verandah rooms on deck 5 will have nightlights in the bathrooms? We are in the quad rooms if that matters. And, what would the best thing to use to hang sheets of paper on the wall (magnets vs. the blue putty stuff). Thanks for any info!

Good morning VATravelers 100,

 

With past cruises, I have brought battery operated tea lights (dollar store) for night light in bathroom and cabin. Also, heavy duty magnet clips (like you use on your fridge) work well on magnetic doors for hanging cruise planners etc. Anything is helpful to maintain less clutter on the dressing table area!

Was just on her last week - MS "O" was very tired looking....

Sorry I can’t buy into your assessment of the ship as very tired, we where on her just after the dry doc last year and the ship was in great shape. I don’t believe that it is “Tired Looking” after just a year. Are you sure you where on the same ship as I was?

Yep; she was in Freeport from 20 Mar through 02 Apr 2018.

 

Not sure, maybe someone can confirm, if she also received “Explorations Central” with ‘the Hub’, ‘Destinations Display’, ‘Virtual Bridge’, ‘Theater EXC,’ etc. and the combo Explorations Café/regular bar in the Crow’s Nest. I know she did not get the infamous "Rijksmuseum at Sea" in her Atrium
