We are assigned cabin 7051 on the Westerdam. I've find 2 different maps of the Rotterdam deck. One shows 7051 as an inside cabin while the other showsit as an outside. Which is correct?

Cabin 7051 is a category J inside cabin according to the HAL website, and that is the one I'd trust. However I also checked on a couple other websites and they also show your cabin as a cat. J inside. Which map shows it as an outside cabin?

I entered "Westerdam Deck Map" in Google. The 7 Blue Seas shows 7051 as a class SA on the starboard side. Same for the Alaskalandandsea site.

I guess a better way to approach this is to ask what category cabin you thought you were booking. You say you were "assigned" cabin 7051. Is this as part of a group booking? There is a vast difference in price between a cat. J inside and a cat. SA verandah suite.

I am thinking HAL reconfigured the deck to put in some more cabins and renumbered them.

My most recent (9/07-12/08) HAL brochure shows 7051 as a catagory J Inside; if that's also what the website says, as Dave points out, that's the one I'd trust.

I just priced a cat SA and a cat J for a cruise in February on the Westerdam. For two people the price is around $5700 for the SA cabin. It is around $1700 for the J cabin.

The 7 Blue Seas Web site is wrong -- the deck plan it shows for Westerdam is actually that of near-sister ship Oosterdam.

Dave, Revervations were made by another couple we're travelling with. I believe we're a cat J so the inside loc makes sense. We paid about $3600 for both wife and me. Considering the time we expect to spend in the cabin, we went as cheaply as possible on the accomdations. We figured we only wanted to sleep and eat on the ship, not buy it.

I need to correct my post above. Westerdam was refurbished recently, most notably some changes to aft balconies, but I had completely forgotten that some inside cabins were also added in the process -- among these was 7051. So, the deck plans on some sites are simply outdated.

When in doubt, go with the cruise line's deck plans.
