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.

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.

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.

Pros: The time at sea.

Cons: The excessive heat and lack of A/C

Recommends Statendam? No.
