The Statendam has only 2 more cruises before it is heading to its new owners who hopefully will re-do the entire ship, but somehow be able to keep the beautiful teak decks. There is much character for this ship, but the older things like 3 ... Read more

Embarkation was a breeze in Seward. We boarded as soon as ship was ready, about 11:30 am, found our cabin, ate lunch and then left the ship to see the Aquarium. The lunch was great in the Lido Restaurant and was the best meal we had. The ... Read more

Why This Cruise? The principal appeal of this cruise was the itinerary. Except for Cabo San Lucas, we had never visited any of the ports of call offered. We had sailed on Veendam, Zaandam and Eurodam among our 32 prior cruises, and ... Read more

Holland America does their Sea of Cortez Cruise once a year. Some of the service and quality issues could have been related to the fact that some of the ports were new or only visited once a year. Other service issues are more basic. The ... Read more
