14 Day Caribbean cruise by capnej

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam

Cruise was amazing the only downfall was the jewelry stores pressuring you to buy something after they said to come in hassle free but other than that an excellent cruise

Wonderful Eastern Caribbean Cruise by AixNPanes

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean

We found the cruise quite relaxing. We had already been to all the ports and didn't really plan on excursions. We ate in the dining room whenever we could and the food was pretty good. Our daughter, who is essentially vegetarian, found better variety in the dining room than on other cruises.

Thanksgiving Cruise by jakubowski

Liked the Nieuw Statendam but preferred Princess and Celebrity. Service was lacking in dining areas. Food fabulous. Entertainment very good. Loved the “History of Holland America Lines”.

Wonderful destinations by Rollins3

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

They cruise was good, shows were okay, food was okay, destinations were great! Very low key, not much to do onboard and nothing lively around the pool area. Strange picks for family night movies at night....didn't stay for them.

Good cruise by coronahills1

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Caribbean

Enjoyed my experience very much but found certain highlights missing from my previous experience. Entertainment in main show room lacking, fresh flowers few, missed the wide promenade walk wrap around deck where you could sit outside and enjoy the view. I also found the artwork was very modern which is not my personal favorite.

Over all, we enjoyed our cruise. Beautiful ship. Nice staff. Food was good. Strongly disliked the Lido Market buffet arrangement. Loved the Music Walk. World Stage entertainment was disappointing.

Nieuw Statendam by MrOceanTravel

Ship: Nieuw Statendam

Nieuw Statendam is a great addition to the HAL fleet while still keep the traditions afloat along with a new modern twist. Sister to Koningsdam, an amazing class of ship!

Mediterranean and Atlantic Crossing.....great itinerary! by jstuewe

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

This cruise had a great itinerary with a good mix of ports (10 day Mediterranean portion) and a relaxing 14-day ocean crossing. The ship is new and beautiful with interesting art displayed throughout. The service was outstanding and the crew was friendly and very accommodating. Although I enjoyed the music in the Rock Room and BB King’s Blues Club, I felt that the entertainment on Center Stage was mostly mediocre with a few exceptions. The food in the Speciality Restaurants was outstanding, especially the Rice Table Dinner in Tamarind. MDR was loud, and food was inconsistent, but service was always excellent. Good cruise for an older crowd.

ONE OF THE BEST EVER! by DrueNSandy

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Nieuw Statendam

This was the longest cruise we have done to date. The Nieuw Statendam is a superb ship. Clean, safe and professionally crewed. We had a back to back, with the Mediterranean Mosiac and Transatlantic together. The weather was fantastic with just 10 minutes of rain and calm seas until one day out of Florida. Rougher seas and rain but not too bad. Highly suggest this shoulder season cruise with smaller crowds and fewer kids. HAL attracts an older crowd (like us 70’s) and the pace is relaxing with no go karts or water slides. The NS does have a retractable roof over the pool so you can swim in chilly weather.
