Sail Date: August 01, 2013 Ship: Statendam Cabin Type: Oceanview Traveled As: Couple Reviewed: 3 years ago
We liked the ship\, it was the right size for us and overall appeared to be maintained well.
Food and Dining
3 out of 5
We ate in the main dining room\, Lido Buffet and Pinnacle Grill. The Pinnacle Grill far exceeded our expectations in service\, decor and quality of food. The dining room was nice\, food was tasty and service was ok. The Lido Buffet was somewhat of a disappointment. Some of the food was cold and undercooked.

None of the activities interested us. The singing/dance show was awful. We left after a few minutes. We did enjoy the comedy/magic show.
Service and Staff
3 out of 5
Most of the staff were friendly and eager to please. We found a few that seemed to be irritated by simple requests. The room steward and assistant were great and exceeded our expectations. Most of the bartenders were friendly.
5 out of 5
The size was perfect for us. We didn't want to cruise on one of the mega ships. There were adequate public rooms but some of the furnishings need to be replaced. All areas were clean.
Cabin / Stateroom
5 out of 5
We had an outside cabin on the main deck. The room had plenty of storage\, was clean and the bed was extremely comfortable. Having a tub/shower combination was great. Also\, having a small sofa was perfect.
