A wonderful experience

Sail Date: September 29, 2011

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Good size, not overcrowded. Friendly staff. Interior was spotless. The one drawback was due to the fact they were constantly painting and varnishing, the fumes on our deck (lower promenade) were horrendous.

Pros: Port visits and transiting the Panama Canal.

Cons: Days at sea.

Recommends Statendam? Yes!

Food and Dining
Cabin / Stateroom
There was only one electrical outlet in the room and the air conditioning barely kept it comfortable.
Ship Quality
Service and Staff
Huatulco, Mexico
Took the Tropical Flowers and Fruit Extravaganza. Takes about 45 minute drive through the country side to a wonderful ranch. While there your are provided fresh fruit to eat and tour the the ranch to view the plants and birds.
Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Took the Town, Country & Tequila tour. Got to see a lot of the country side and a Tequila distillery with free sampling of 6 different tequilas. The short shopping portion of tour was a waste of time.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
Water was cool and refreshing.
Puerto Quetzal, Guatemala
