Nieuw Statendam Cruise Review by Tamcfamily

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Mar 2019
  • Destination: the Western Caribbean
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Stateroom

We loved the music venues at night! We loved the ship! It was beautiful, our balcony room was amazing on the 11th floor. The showers with glass doors are revolutionary..mostly we loved the lido market! We NEVER usually eat in the buffet on cruises but we ate there very often ! We actually enjoyed the food choices there more than the dining room..... which means I think they need to work on the menu in the dining room. The boat was very quite ... everything started early and ended pretty early. We would’ve liked a little bit more excitement on the boat but they cater to an older clientele. I have to say it was the most well run for getting on and off the boat ! Absolutely no lineups at any of our ports ... in hindsight we wondered if the majority of the cruisers didn’t get off the boat.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VS 11035

The room was beautiful! Tons of space especially with four of us in the room ! We loved being so high up on the boat and it was so quite !! Our favourite thing is the bathroom !! No more terrible shower curtains ! I hope more cruise ships move to a glass door !!

Port & Shore Excursion Reviews

Half Moon Cay

Loved this port ! Chairs and umbrellas are on the beach ! Lunch is really good ! Beach was beautiful had a great day! Hardly waited for the tender boat !

Ocho Rios

Went to the beach in the taxi. $40 return for four of us to go to a private beach with wifi, food and drink service and chair and umbrella service. Had a great day snorkeling around the coral right off the beach!

Grand Cayman (Georgetown)

Took a taxi $40 for the four of us return to go to a private beach with drink service, Chairs and umbrellas are extra but if your over 18 you can use the pool.


Was rainy and overcast we took a taxi into town for about $6 and walked all through the town! Did a little shopping and had a drink at a local restaurant!

Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)

Absolutely love Fort Lauderdale! Really recommend the water taxi !!its the best for sightseeing and worth every penny !!!
