An interesting cruise with good friends.

Sail Date: September 30, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

If we had read the revues of this particular ship earlier we would have been warned and cancelled. The crew, staff, entertainment was great. They tried and were embarrassed with some of the ship problems they inherited.

Pros: The time at sea.

Cons: The excessive heat and lack of A/C

Recommends Statendam? No.

Ship Quality
They have had contining problems with this ship. It was immaculaely clean, but in some areas it was unbearably HOT.
Cabin / Stateroom
Our room, after the first night, was unbelievably uncomfortable, I had to go to library during the night twice to get some sleep. The size, amenities, location all were fine.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
exce[pt for one evening. Some of the nights were way over the top when it comes to excellence. Fantastic!
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala

We (four of us) secured our own taxi for a fair amount and had him as long as we wanted. He stayed with us at all times and spoke limited Engish.
