Review Summary

We sailed on the Statendam to Alaska via the inside passage. The previous cruise had been cut short due to epidemic illness on the ship we were on. The CDC had Red-Tagged the ship, but we were very impressed at how the crew and staff responded. Ship was sterilized prior to our boarding and all precautions were taken. No one, to my knowledge became ill. The food was the biggest disappointment. Very limited selections, and low quality (especially the beef and seafood). On one formal dinner we were served lobster tail the size of a crawfish, with a 3 ounce filet. When we tried to get a breakfast steak we were told that was a one-time special only. There was a small premium pay-for restaurant with food which looked very appitizing, but we were on the waiting list all week with no openings (and it was our anniversary). Other than the food, it was a very enjoyable cruise.
