Review of ms Oosterdam deck 11 (Observation-The Retreat-Sports)
Observation Deck has two Canvas Cover (shaded seating) areas and the ship’s Sports Center (with separate Volleyball Court and Basketball Court).
During the ship's drydock 2016 refurbishment, here both Canvas Cover areas were redesigned to become “The Retreat”. The Retreat is an adults-only relaxation complex with sunbathing area (padded luxury loungers) and all 14 private cabanas available for hire. Cabana rental pates are per day. Daily pass prices differ depending on the Oosterdam ship’s location/itinerary (portday or seaday) and are inclusive of 1 massage tent, lunch and concierge service.
Being the ship’s top deck, Observation Deck provides some of the best vantage points to make photos and enjoy the port- and sea views along the cruise route.
