Lanai cabins
Is HAL the only cruise line that has Lanai cabins ? If not ,which others have them ?

What is this type of cabin? I have heard the term relating to hotel rooms & was never sure what it meant.

Sounds like a fancy name for a balcony cabin to me. Do they serve poi?

On HAL ,the Lanai cabin had a glass door opening to the promenade deck and 2 lounge chairs .It was wonderful .

So...they open up onto a public deck?

They do. I believe Holland America's Veendam is the only ship which features these cabins. They were an add on a couple of years back.

Not sure, but there may be some river boats who use the same feature.

That's right, I forgot they open to a public deck. I was thinking they were more like French balconies.

The American Queen steamboat has cabins that open to the outside deck (but that is the only entrance). I actually think they might modify that in some way when it comes out.

These were the former Cat C cabins that looked out over the promenade deck. They cut out a balcony door in these cabins so you can walk directly out onto the promenade deck.

I do hope they treated the glass on the windows so people on the promenade can't look in otherwise you'll end up with an inside cabin because you will have the drapes drawn most of the time.

Take care,
