Aft veranda questions Nieuw Statendam

Recommended Posts

Considering a Transatlantic on NS in 2020. (New to HAL, former Princess cruisers). 

Can anyone answer the following:

Are the aft veranda staterooms (VS category) covered, specifically on Deck 8? Other decks?

Is there a mini-fridge or cooler in the stateroom?

Can I bring aboard canned soda (tonic water, LaCroix, etc.)

Is there still a sitting area, couch, loveseat, etc. Princess is removing seating from their balcony cabins which is why we are changing lines.

Thanks for any advice!

Aft balconies are partly covered. Yes, there is a loveseat. Yes, you may bring on soda.

 

I don't think a veranda gets a fridge, but you might be able to rent one. Call ships services and ask.

 

I love a view of the wake, but for a transatlantic I'd go for midships. Better ride if it gets rough.

There are minibars in all staterooms on the Nieuw Statendam.  You can bring as much non-alcholic beverages as you wish in your carry-on luggage.  There will be two chairs and a small drinks table on the balcony.

We are also long time Princess cruisers who have decided to try HAL. The information regarding refrigerators is a little troublesome. I’m used to having a refrigerator in veranda cabins with Princess.

There are fridges (coolers) in ALL cabins on the Nieuw Statendam.  There will be standard minibar set up but you can request that it be removed so you can put in your own beverages.
