Customer reviews for Nieuw Statendam

We are not regular cruisers and have not been on any Holland America ships before so we were not sure what to expect. However, we were very impressed with every aspect of the cruise from the stateroom, service, food and great music and artwork. The experience has restored our faith in cruises and we would certainly sail Holland America again.

Excellent facilities and staff. Entertainment was good. On board expenses and excursions were a little high but overall a very good holiday. Please organise better weather next time (if at all possible!)

Sailed to the Norwegian fjords. Majestic as ever. Lovely new ( and happy) ship. Stylish, not as brash as publicity photos suggest. The big production stage shows disappointing but the young classical musicians were terrific and the BBKing blues and jazz sets were the perfect way to round off the evening. Food and service in the main restaurant and Lido buffet so good you can forget the speciality restaurants and extra cost. And the Orange Club exclusive restaurant looked soulless. We sailed from Amsterdam - understandably 50% of passengers were Dutch. All Service charges a bit high and drinks weren’t cheap either. But then they never are!
