  • Twin window cabin 528 will be rebuilt as twin deluxe cabin (528)
  • Superior cabin 455 (on deck 4) will be replaced by two twin porthole cabins (455 and 456)


The twin window and deluxe cabins will be spacious cabins of approx. 17 square meters. The superior cabins will vary from 19.4 till 21.2 square meters.
