We really enjoyed the ship. It is only 3 months old. The crew reminded us that it was designed from feedback from customers.

Nice relaxing cruise. If you have not cruised before, be prepared for people to loose there manners when they get on board if they had any to begin with.

New Vessel was excellent. Not big room but efficient furniture. Many entertainments at stage were fantastic. Especially room stewards were great customer care and very kind.

Just got off the Nieuw... by spalover

Sail Date: /

Just got off the Nieuw Statendam this past Sunday. Ship is beautiful, crew exceptionally friendly and helpful! Food on the Lido buffet was awesome! Best we have had on any of our 25 cruises. Dining room food was ok. Cold almost every night. Entertainment was good, especially BB King band and rock band.

New ship...great food...good entertainment by Trentsevern

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

We have enjoyed Holland America cruises and we liked the itinerary Nieuw Standendam offered. This ship exceeded our expectations. The rooms are nicely appointed, small, very functional and well laid out. Was great to be on a new ship, everything is in tip top shape. Our room stewart was excellent and very attentive, thank you Ajaz. We mostly had breakfast & dinners in the dining room, the food was excellent. Some dinners were a 10+. Loved the menu contributions from each Chef. Provided a wide variety of choice. Enjoyed the free style dining option. We never felt rushed to get to dinner. We decided to take the drink package, which made the cruise even better. From morning coffee's at the Dutch cafe, bottled water throughout the day, cocktails during the day & wine with dinner. Option of having an after dinner liquor or drink while enjoying the great entertainment the ship featured. We loved the new layout. We went to all the musical venues and preferred this to the old stage presentation entertainment. The ship felt like it was geared to our generation and not the senior senior generation. I loved the art throughout the ship. Felt the ship was well thought out. Found this cruise to be the most relaxing

Nice ship by gobigorgohome

Sail Date: / Traveled As: Singles/Friends

We were on the O Magazine Girls Getaway Cruise, so much of the normal offerings were replaced with O Magazine events. Had a blast, overall disappointed in the food and beverage, but it did not dampen the fun we had on this beautiful vessel.

HAL’s Nieuw Statendam is a... by pamelabluejay

Sail Date: /

HAL’s Nieuw Statendam is a beautiful, spacious ship. The service is excellent, along with the food. The staff do their outmost to ensure your stay is enjoyable. My only negative is how Holland America can justify allowing smoking in their casino, exposing their staff and guests to a carcinogenic second-hand smoke. Of course, it’s all about the earnings of the Casino. It’s now 2019, get with present, HAL. Only 18% of Americans smoke, so we follow the lowest denominator? Our cabin was on the 8th floor, below the smoking area on the stern deck. I could smell the smoke in my room and had to use my puffer to breathe better. Please be a leader in this industry and go smoke-free, HAL!
