Holland America Line said its 1,432-passenger Volendam will have 21 of its cabins converted to lanai staterooms during a drydock in December.
The lanai cabins feature large sliding-glass doors with direct access to the lower promenade wraparound teak walking deck. They come with reserved deck chairs and a one-way mirrored coating on the sliding-glass doors to ensure privacy.
In addition, Volendam’s bars will be reconfigured to feature Mix, a space that incorporates three specialty theme bars: Martinis, Champagne and Spirits & Ales.
During the drydock, all suite bathrooms will be updated to feature new whirlpool bathtubs, stone vanities, lighted mirrors, Grohe fixtures, floors, walls and sinks.
Several additional categories, including the lanai staterooms, will receive new bathroom appointments and walk-in showers.
