You guys are being so helpful, we aren now starting to come up with a lot of last minutes questions. What kind of pillows do they supply on board and can you request any different ones. ie back or neck specific pillows.
I agree with the previous two posts. I am VERY picky about pillows and most of the time when I travel I end up with neck and back pains but not on the Zaandam. I traveled to Alaska in May of this year and heard about the comfortable beds but really didn't believe it. I never slept so well the 7 days I was on board and believe me that is very unusual for me. I used the two feather pillows and how wonderful they were. I even bought them when I returned (you can buy the bedding online on the HAL site) so I can enjoy them every night.....
The choices Sails mention are available in suites and better only. If you are in the other type cabins you may have to tip to get a feather pillow. I have found all the pillows in all type of cabins to be great.
They have different kinds, made different ways ... AND, if you want more pillows just ask. I like to have 2 or 3 pillows ... Christopher likes a pillow with the thickness of a piece of paper, so on his bed he's got one thin pillow, and on mine I've got 3.
