Robes yes.    Slippers- not that I have ever seen.

Slippers are in suites only not in standard balcony 

What is a "standard balcony"?

We have never sailed HAL and on the Rotterdam (which we booked for February), there are only Lanai cabins and Balcony suites.

A standard balcony cabin is called a veranda cabin. Larger balcony cabins are called Vista Suite or Signature suite. These "suites" don't come with a lot of perks. The largest balcony cabins are the Neptune Suites and Pinnacle Suite (a true multi-room suite). These are the ones that get the lounge and some other perks.

 

The smaller ships, like Rotterdam, don't have any "veranda" cabins. Their balconies are either Vista Suites or Neptunes. On these ships, a Neptune is twice the size of a Vista.

 

We were in a Vista on one of the smaller ships a number of years ago and I can't recall if we got slippers. Neptune Suites include slippers, but sometimes you have to ask.

Thank you. Does that mean on the Rotterdam there are "perks"?

You get double Mariner days, and IIRC, a telephone concierge. I didn't get much out of the telephone concierge. They usually just transferred me to the front desk.

 

I think HAL started calling the balcony cabins on the smaller ships "suites" and giving double mariner days to help justify the high price. The thing is, there aren't a lot of balcony cabins on those ships, and HAL is charging premium prices for them compared to the variety of balconies on the large suites. The Vista suites on Rotterdam are a nice size, but not huge. The Neptune suites are very large, with nice big balconies. But they're expensive!

Go a day early to your departure port and stay in a good hotel and you probably will get a pair slippers you can take with you.   Will be less expensive than booking a signature suite to get the slippers.   Hope you have a sense of humour.  LOL

VOV last summer in a Vista Suite 39 days on the Rotterdam, no slippers. 🙂

Politely asked and received slippers on our last cruise, basic balcony cabin.

Or go to a Walgreens and buy a pair of slippers for $10, much cheaper than the hotel room, LOL. The good hotel might just charge you for the slippers you took with you, 🤑
