SLIDING glass doors are to replace windows in 44 suites on each of Seabourn Cruise Line's three ships.
The change will be introduced on Seabourn Pride, Seabourn Spirit and Seabourn Legend during their dry-docking periods in 2000. Outside the glass doors will be a ledge and a balustrade, rather than a full-size balcony. However, the 277 sq ft suites will not be reduced in size to accommodate the renovations.
A Seabourn spokesman said the company believed the sliding doors would be popular with passengers, who like to get the open air into their cabins. A premium will be charged on these cabins but the amount has not been finalised
The changes will be featured in Seabourn's 2000 brochure, which is due out in September.
On Royal Viking Sun, which is to join the fleet as Seabourn Sun at the end of the year, 38% of the cabins have balconies.
