Aft Vista Suites Nieuw Statendam?

Recommended Posts

Looking at booking an aft Vista Suite on Nieuw Statendam for January. It is currently 1/2 the price of the Cat. SS!  

Any recommendations on which aft cabin? All on Deck 7 are available, and according to the deck plan, the middle cabin looks skinnier than the two at the side next to the Cat. SB wraparounds. Is the deck plan correct?  Thanks for any info on these aft Vistas!!!

We were in AS7191 on the K'dam in January, which is the same position as AS7189 on the NS.  We loved the extra depth of the verandah.  While I did not measure the width or length and compared it to a center AS I have normally found that HAL's diagrams are accurate, which is why we did 7191 instead of one of the center cabins, even though they may be just a little deeper.  

 

The view from the aft cabins is great, and we especially enjoyed sitting out at night and listening to the "prop wash".  Very relaxing and easy to fall asleep, day or night.  You will enjoy the room no matter the slight difference in size.  We have been in a Verandah cabin twice and a Vista suite twice on the K'dam, and prefer the floor plan of the vista's if the price is not much more than the verandah.

We were in 7194 on the K'dam in September 2016. We chose to have the extra length of the cabin as the difference in width, if any, was negligible. The space between the end of the bed and the wall, always a good indication, seemed no less than in other cabins.

Thanks, Fouremco. Did you have to scooch around each other as you passed by at the end of the bed? 

We usually go for Cat. SS or SC, so going to a Vista will be a tad different. The price jump from a Vista to an SS on this ship was shocking, so the Vista is looking good. 😄
