Make the most of your downtime on the ship and learn new skills at sea. Take part in wine tasting and blending or video-editing classes and you’ll be able to return home and impress your friends with your newfound talents. Alternatively, see nature come to life through specially made BBC Earth Experiences accompanied by live music or join in the fun of live cooking demonstrations with America’s Test Kitchen.
If you’d like to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, the ship’s decks also have lots of activities to offer. With a basketball court, jogging track, ping pong tables and outdoor fitness equipment, even the most restless of guests will find something to wear them out.
However, if you’d rather spend your holiday laying back and letting the world pass you by, Nieuw Statendam has all the facilities you could want. From two pools and three hot tubs to padded sun loungers, soak up the sun and refresh in the water in style. There’s even a giant movie screen where guests can enjoy the latest releases!
For something even more luxurious, book an appointment at the huge Greenhouse Spa & Salon where the calming décor and world-class range of treatments are guaranteed to transport you to a new level of relaxation.
