Review summary

If I had to choose between Nieuw Statendam and the Koningsdam, I would go in a heartbeat on the Koningsdam. Both ships are beautiful ships but something about the Koningsdam is my favorite.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
The cabin was excellent with service. Location was behind the movie screen and speakers. Depending on movie for noise factor. Poor insulation for door closures on floor.

The ship all in all is beautiful, staff is excellent and cares to your every need. Food as always is excellent! Love HAL.
