I had a category VA on the Zuiderdam in April. I had no idea that it was considered a "suite". I booked a cabin with a verandah. And it was lovely and very quiet. It was directly below the Lido deck and we couldn't hear a thing. Where did the suite designation come from. On the otherhand I am booked in a category B on the Veendam and this is clearly labeled suite. We wouldn't use the "suite" lounge anyway since we travel with friends who don't book "suites". We do it for room and the balcony.
