Sail Date: September 30, 2010
Ship: Statendam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Couple

Bad ship. Many broken things (air conditioning was horrible, by the end of the cruise two elevators stopped working, first half of trip no satellite for sports weekend, overflowing toilets in staterooms, dining room was so hot that formal nights were unbearable, noisy "creaking" in our stateroom associated with ocean swells that really bothered my wife). The crew, staff and food was great, so the only issue is a worn out ship.
