A cruise of a lifetime!

Sail Date: July 31, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship was comfortable and clean, easier to get around than the giant size cruise ships.

Pros: The experience was awesome from the shore excursions (floatplane to misty fjords, helicopter to mendenhall glacier, whale watching and white pass railway to the entertainment on the ship e

Cons: My only complaint was the coffee in the dining room. It was awful. The coffee in the explorations cafe was good though.

Recommends Statendam? Yes!
