    I've looked at everything I can find on-line and did find a picture of one, but I still have some questions -

    Is the verandah completely closed in except the "opening"?

    Would this be a safe area for children?

    Its fully enclosed except for the big porthole. The Wonder's Nav
    have a much bigger opening. Its great when it is windy or rainy, because you can still sit out on the balcony. I always have a Nav when I travel. Yes it very safe with kids

    "Safe" is a relative term. Don't discount a child's ability to climb up a chair or table which could put them at risk. Since a child can not see out the Nav verandah as they can with a regular verandah, they might be more likely to want to climb up to see out.

    Young children should never be left alone on a verandah.

    I agree with Mark about the safety issue - never leave your child alone on any veranda. Having said that I prefer the Navigators as well. They are more cozy to me than a regular veranda. I also love the padded bench - great place to relax with a good book.

    The other things I like about them is there proximity to other things. You are at the back of the ship so a quick trip up to Topsiders/Beach Blanket, Scoops, Palo. In addition you get to have your safety drill in the cool comfort of Animators Palette!

    VERY convenient location when you want to run up and get that cup of coffee in the early a.m.(no make-up, bad hair, etc) from the bev. station w/out having to run into too many people!!!
