Lots of sea days!: Statendam Cruise Review by GirlGuider

Lots of sea days!
Destination: Panama Canal & Central America
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
Food was excellent, menu varied and everything delicious. Entertainment is usually on the weak side on Holland America ships. This cruise was an exception. Shows were varied and excellent, performers were very good.
If you need variety and lots of stimulation, this is not the itinerary for you. The first week had only one port, the rest were at sea or transiting the Panama Canal. Weather was great, so we enjoyed sitting in sun and shade, the pools and enjoying the extensive library.
The Port Guide, Wallis, was excellent, giving great talks on our ports and the history of the Panama Canal and More area.
Huatulco is a beautiful spot - great beach as you get off the ship and a nice little town 15 minute walk away Less
Cabin review: G686 Large Ocean-View Stateroom with Porthole
deck 5 cabins have the beds under the promenade deck 6. Usually not a problem unless there are very keen power walkers or runners (which is not allowed) at 6 am. I almost went out in my pyjamas to chew them out! 686 is quite far aft, so you get engine noise and thrusters when coming into port. Not a big problem, however, for people who like to know when we are getting into port.Read All Large Ocean-View Stateroom with Porthole (G) Reviews >>
