The theme of the renovations on the Zuiderdam is open spaces. This is best exemplified by The Crow’s Nest on the forward Observation Deck 10. The ship’s library is no longer in a separate room, but consists of a large kiosk (above, right) and two smaller book shelves in opposite corners of the space. A panoramic vista from the top of the ship can be viewed from various positions throughout the room while enjoying a drink from the onsite Explorations Café bar.
