Flexible Cabin Concept

“The flexibility of our standard cruise cabin offers guests the high quality and comfort they expect, but affords them considerably increased space and choice – and, therefore, added value to their experience.”
Application of an interconnecting module brings extra options, including dining and tasting, spa-bathing and sauna. Materials, colours, fabrics, elements and lighting can all be tailored as required, offering full customisation potential. Damen has paid close attention to storage onboard to ensure maximum space whatever layout is selected.

The Damen Flexible Standard Cruise Cabin ensures extra versatility to both operators and guests and offers guests considerable added value.
