The whitewall is a solid steel wall instead of the plexiglass. It is the same height as a plexiglass wall, but obviously blocks your view when you're sitting down.

On the classic ships some of the veranda outside walls are solid (whitewall) not plexiglass (see-through). It's my understanding on the new ships, the "whitewall" verandah has the solid portion for the lower 18 inches of the wall, the top still being plexiglass.

We had a whitewall verandah on the Dream and as stated above, only the bottom portion (18 inches or even less) was solid. The rest was plexiglass. Didn't bother us at all. Not sure if some may have more of a solid wall than others, or if they're all just the bottom portion on the Dream.
