We like the Celebrity ships because they have a dining area right outside the buffet with tables and umbrellas.
Wondering if HAL (Zuiderdam) has the same set up. In looking at the deck plans it looks like you can go out by the pool and sit and eat. Is this the only place to eat if you want to sit in the sun and enjoy the warm Caribbean air or is there another area off the buffet?
There are tables outside the Lido by the pool, but they are partially covered by the retractable roof and it gets kind of stuffy... However, you can go up one deck and there are some tables and comfy chairs there... that would work !
