The Shore Excursions manager was hopeless, especially at Guam, where no shuttles had been organised, so people spent up to $70 for taxis to downtown (we did our own thing, near the ship, finding a beautiful hidden beach), but the pathetic ... Read more

We are long-time members of the Princess family but have always heard wonderful things about Holland America. We found a 14-day Alaskan cruise, round-trip Seattle that visited some ports we've wanted to see so we booked and looked forward ... Read more

We went on a two-week cruise to Alaska, aboard the Ms Statendam. We had sailed with several other cruise lines before, but this was our first time with Holland America. In comparison, Holland America was below average. Our ocean view ... Read more

This review won't likely help future cruisers of the Statendam, as HAL is transferring the ship to P&O Australia. But it may help future cruisers on HAL's 14 night Alaskan voyage - which we really enjoyed! This review is in a log ... Read more

The crew was mostly exceptional other than I ordered two omelets (one for wife and one for myself) and cook prepared mine and then went to another passenger seemingly forgetting the wife's omelet. By the time i had hers prepared (he ... Read more

Holland America is the only cruise line that offers this 14 day experience. It visits small ports such as Homer, Kodiak and Icy Strait Point. These three ports offer what the real Alaska is like. There are no chain jewelry stores There are ... Read more

The Statendam is incredibly well maintained and the crew is constantly working on it. While it has been 5 years since its last dry dock update, you would never know by walking around the ship. The crew is skilled, proud and enthusiastic ... Read more

I am an avid reader of Cruise Critic, and although we have taken ten cruises, I learn something new almost every time I log onto this site. Even though with ten Holland America cruises, I rarely give an opinion as there are so many of you ... Read more

Holland America Cruise Lines goes to wonderful places. However you might not want to travel with them. There are virtually NO activities aboard the ship except for their “lectures” which are mostly just stuff off the internet ... Read more

We were on the Statendam in June for a 14 day Alaskan cruise and not only was it a great itinerary but we loved the Statendam. It is true that she is getting a bit worn in places but that doesn't take away from the comfortable feel of the ... Read more

We took the Statendam to Alaska in 2003, on our very first cruise which was to Alaska. This time it was a two week cruise with new ports and three new ports. The weather was great for us, being from Arizona, in the 50's and 60's and a ... Read more

DH and I are in our low 70s and enjoyed the fact that we could still be very active on this ship. We drove 2 hours to the pier, and parked. There were sedate things to do, and more active things to do. This was not our first time to ... Read more

We had cruised 51 times before and in almost every part of the world. These previous cruises ranged from 7 to 14 or 15 days in length. Because of the travel time to and from the ship, we grew to prefer cruises that are 10 or more days in ... Read more

I was a little apprehensive before boarding the Statendam for her cruise to Hawaii and the South Pacific this February. After boarding all my concerns went away. My husband and I are 4-star Mariners, so had very quick boarding (which ... Read more

On this cruise, the captain first came on the loudspeaker and his every mention of the Statendam was “the elegant Statendam,” which we thought was amusing. We’re in our 60s and most of the 1,211 passengers could have ... Read more

Our expectations were low for the soon-to-be sold, frequently disrespected Statendam, but this was a very pleasant 15-day sailing through the Panama Canal. We’ve been on a cruise hiatus for six years, seven since our last HAL ... Read more
