CruiseMapper's deckplan services provide cruise deck plans reviews integrated with newest deck layouts and legends (cabin category color codes). Each page has a separate link to the vessel's cruise cabins review that provides information on stateroom amenities and all cabin grades (floor plans and photos are also included).
Along with regularly updated officially issued cruise line deck plans, CruiseMapper's cruise deck plans pages also show statistical information on passenger shipping vessels (incl ferry ships). All pages are organized as "ship review" articles. You will know what is what, where (location on deck), serving what (functions), operates how and when (review of all onboard venues as activities, amenities, operational hours, special features).
Our cruise ship deck plans will show you what is what (activities, amenities, serving what purpose), located where, changed when (newest upgrades / latest refurbishment review). All dining venues (restaurants and food bars) reviews also contain basic menu/cuisine information, and whether the dining options are complimentary, at surcharge PP or a la carte priced. All deck plan pages include basic statistical information, such as:
- year built, vessel class and sister ships (among the fleets of all lines).
- total number of cabins, plus number per type (Inside, OceanView/RiverView, Balcony, Suite)
- capacity - passengers (normal and max/double occupancy) and crew capacity
- number of passenger accessible decks, number (in any) of swimming pools and whirlpools (hot tubs), passenger elevators, water-slide(s
- On some ships is additionally provided information regarding name origin/meaning, service history, fun facts.
Cruise deck plans (layouts) updates
Like all things in life, cruise ship deck plans do change in time. Often, cruise lines change facilities and public venues - their location, type (services and amenities) or names. Other changes may relate to new cabin categories. Often, after a major refurbishment, cruise lines add to the ship:
- new passenger cabins
- new dining venues - specialty restaurants, bars, lounges, etc
- new facilities - aqua park, water-slide(s), Spa, pool(s) / whirlpool(s), outdoor movie theater, etc
- or - simply change the names of the existing ones.
