Zaandam - Magnetic Stateroom Walls

Recommended Posts

Can someone confirm that the walls in the staterooms on the Zaandam are magnetic? I was on the Veendam last May and they were no longer magnetic. Thanks!

You need strong magnets to hold much weight on the walls. Google "rare earth magnets".  Also, magnets will stick better to the ceilings than the walls.

Newbie to cruising, but given ship construction it may depend on your cabin location.  Higher cabins tend to have lighter metals and compounds to preserve center of gravity, while lower cabins tend to have more steel.

We were on the Zaandam last June and my magnets didn't stick to the wall.  I had a large map and was able to hang it with magnets on the ceiling.  Had to do that on the Amsterdam too.  Both were Alaska cruises and liked having my big Alaska Map.  

 

What I use for cabins that are not magnetic, I get removable hanging putty.  Works great for putting my calendar and other info on the walls.

We have spent 45 days on the Zaandam in the past year (two different cruises) and found the only place where magnets really stuck was the outside wall.
