Can someone tell me exactly what you get from the Neptune Lounge? We came to our senses and changed our 24 day cruise with our two kids to a 12 day trip- those senses were expensive since by the time we found them, the only rooms left on the ship (Zuiderdam) were in the SA category. Now, I'm trying to figure out what exactly the Neptune Lounge offers. I've read the plug on the HA website but would like to know from someone who has used this. Is there better internet access? Better breakfast selections?...etc. Any info is much appreciated. Thank you

The Neptune Lounge on the ship is like the Concierge Lounge in a Hotel.

It's a place where you can go and get a coffee, cappuccino, latte, espresso without having to go to the Lido or pay for one at the Explorations Cafe.

It's not a place for a "better breakfast", as they only have fruit juices, dry cereal, fresh fruits, smoked salmon, cream cheese, bagels, which you can toast (if you can't find the toaster, ask the concierge where it is - I couldn't find it the first time), toast, sweet rolls, etc. It's more like a Continental breakfast. As you have the privileges of the Neptune, you can also go to the Pinnacle for breakfast without a reservations, but it's no better, IMO, than the dining room. We actually prefer the Lido for breakfast - greater variety there.

When you get on board speak to the Concierge and she will explain everything about the use of the room to you & what they have in the way of snacks which are available all day. Often in the afternoon we'll pop in for a cup of tea , some little open faced sandwiches or a coffee, sweet roll, fruit bread, cookies and those wonderful chocolates. hmmm.

No better internet service in the Neptune - it's the same all over the ship - it comes from one source.

Enjoy and have a great time.

Any other questions, please ask.

You will enjoy the amenities of an S cabin. The Neptune provides a personal concierge that can resolve almost any issue with little hassle.
