Ship Facts: Statendam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Statendam Deck Plans
STATENDAM BRISBANE TO AUCKLAND 18 DAY CHRISTMAS 07 CRUISE
Hi, 5th of Jan 2008

Just arrived home from Auckland after a wonderful 18 night trip...Yesterday we were in the Bay of Islands & complimentary shuttle busses laid on as with most ports.

The rail on the Veranda deck was missing for 10 days and as we left most of the right top deck rail was also missing so be careful.

The Chef's gala dinner last night where all the staff & entertainers performed their dance & song with every passenger having their own Chef's hat...it was a great finish.

A new entertainment team joined the ship today in Auckland.

As will a new Captain I believe...we shall miss him!

All of the shows were great as were the meals.

The Lido now has full tablecloth service at evening meals as there have been a few hiccups with Freestyle dining as they settle into this.

We had the 5:45pm confirmed seating which suited us.

I will post an edited video highlight of the trip in the next few weeks on youtube.

See the video of the Syd Hong Kong trip here:

The disembarkation in Auckland this morning was the best & smoothest I have ever seen.
