question regarding cabin on Nieuw Statendam

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


I've just booked the Nieuw Statendam for next February. It will be my first experience with HAL and I'm really looking forward to it! We've booked Cabin 8080 and I understand that the balcony is slightly bigger and angled because of the location. My question, for anyone who has been on it, is whether the balcony is entirely exposed or is there a combination of shade and sunshine? I usually book cabins on Caribe deck with Princess and those balconies provide both and are larger so I just wondered.


Thanks in advance!

We had a similar balcony cabin on the Koningsdam - 5113 if you want to check it out on  the deck plans. It was a great cabin, and the balcony is fully covered.  The midship location is great too and very handy to the elevators.

  I think you will love your cabin.  I am pretty sure you will really prefer the bathroom on this ship  to Princess bathrooms! 

Have a great cruise.

Thank you very much for letting me know. I look forward to checking out the bathroom now that you mention it! The lack of an overfriendly shower curtain has to be better I do not doubt!
