VQ Cabin 10031 (Spa Verandah)--
Located on the 10th level near the forward elevators. Good location. Not too noisy. Most of the noise was from the neighbors on one side of us---must be hard of hearing. Convenient to the ping pong tables, loungers, and New York Deli/Pizza bar which is above the lido pool area. Entrance to the Spa office area right below us.
inside our verandah room. closet to my right. Fridge and safe in near closet. 3 drawers below the fridge. Bathroom to my left.
Dining around the ship:
One of the stations in Lido. I read lots of complaints about all the stations and how long it took to get food, but I didn't find that a problem.
Up on level 10 to the New York Deli/Pizza place. Love their plates!
The Dutch Cafe:
Another new free food venue for HAL! Complete with Delf dishes.
Order at the far counter and wait for your food, then seat yourself.
Sel de Mer:
Another new premium restaurant---I understand it's mainly a seafood place. We didn't pay for any of our meals since we like the food in the free venues.
The Culinary Arts room----
Explorers Cafe on level 12.
Great mini sandwiches and sweet snacks for free. Specialty coffees and bottled waters for sale.
The Dining Room:
Only ate here 3 or 4 times during our 10 night cruise. Service was slow, as usual. Food was good. Only problem here was too much political conversation going on one night. You're kind of trapped if you don't like the conversation.
new colorful pool towels.
aft pool from level 10.
Spa and workout area:
The spinning class room. There was a fee for most of the gym classes.
Around Deck 11:
This is where the walking track is instead of the Promenade deck. The track is rather small (12 laps equals a mile), but most people I saw walking here would walk the whole deck and not just the track. There were also lots of pieces of exercise equipment around the deck.
I believe these were on level 12. I believe these are the ones people pay for? It didn't look too busy. They're in sort of a dead end area. We found them by accident when we were trying to get to the other side of the ship.
Walking the Promenade deck:
I'd read complaints from people who tried to walk the promenade deck, so I went to check it out. It can be done. Especially on this cruise since hardly anyone was out walking!
Around the inside of the ship:
Billboard--great music venue with free appetizers in the evening.
Some of the Floral Arrangements:
Artwork around the ship:
Cool glass piece by the Crows nest.
some of the auction art---Peter Max, I presume?
