MS Statendam

Clifford Taylor from Swanley 5 Star Rating

I would really recommend this cruise, it is perfect for all adults and is one of the best ships in Holland America’s fleet. The ship felt very personal and I met some great people on-board. The food was amazing and the staff could not do enough for you. This ship has incredible itinerarys.

The large theatre had great shows every night of the cruise. This ship is a 5* ship with 5* service.

I would definately go again.

MS Ryndam

Darryl Henderson from Stourport on Severn 5 Star Rating

I would really recommend this cruise, it is perfect for all adults and is one of the best ships in Holland America’s fleet. As the ship was small it felt very personal and I met some great people on-board. The food was amazing and the staff could not do enough for you. This ship has incredible itinerary’s to Norway at great prices.

The large theatre had great shows every night of the cruise. This ship is a 5* ship with 5* service.

I would defiantly go again.

MS Ryndam

Grace Sizer from Rugeley 5 Star Rating

We enjoyed a 7 night cruise on board the MS Ryndam. We had wanted to try Holland America for a while and we were thrilled when we were recommended this ship. We much prefer smaller ships and have been deterred slightly in the past thinking that all Holland America ships were much larger than we liked. However we were proved wrong. The Ryndam is a perfect size, the crew and staff recognised us throughout our holiday which made us feel very valued indeed. We loved the open seating aspect too, and loved the layout of the main restaurant and the open dining restaurant. The staircase in the restaurant was magnificent and really added a decadent feel to the cruise. We are already booked on her again, but for even longer this time! Faultless holiday!

MS Statendam

Helga Dixon from Rayleigh 5 Star Rating

My husband and I had a wonderful cruise aboard the MS Statendam with Holland America. We loved the décor on board and found that as the ship had a refurbishment in 2010 there were some lovely features. We loved the traditional feel yet there were modern elements to it as well. The main dining area is beautiful, and the food to die for. There wasn’t a time when you couldn’t find something to eat and we really enjoyed the introduction of the anytime dining. There is a fantastic restaurant called the Pinnacle Grill which is not to be missed! In the evenings the shows are excellent, more intimate than someof the other ships we have been on, but we loved the singers and bands that played. Overall a fabulous cruise!

MS Ryndam

Pauline Warman from Hengoed 5 Star Rating

I really enjoyed my cruise on the Ryndam I have never sailed with Holland America before but I will most definitely again. It was a lovely little ship and had everything you needed I spent most of my time at the sea view pool and at the Oasis on sky deck but if you wanted to be more active then they had an extensive range of activities on board The food was excellent from the Lido restaurant to the Rotterdam dining room I couldn’t fault a thing. I felt really felt looked after by the staff and met some lovely people and being a single traveller that put my at ease. I am already planning my next cruise with them.

MS Ryndam

Cliff Lamb from Swansea 4 Star Rating

Ryndam: It was just so easy to go from Dover rather than flying as we usually do. It was the first time we’d cruised with Holland America, but my partner and I had such a peaceful and relaxing break we’d recommend them to anyone. We had the choice to do early or late dining and we enjoyed sitting on a large table as we got friendly with the other passengers onboard. The size was great too – just big enough to give me a choice of pools & restaurants but small enough to feel welcoming and cosy.

MS Statendam

Jo McCulloch from Norton 4 Star Rating

We have cruised on this ship before as its an older more traditional ship which we like but most importantly, it is immaculate in appearance and is exceptionally clean
Our standard outside cabin was large in size which is another good thing about older ships, more modern ones seem to pinch every inch where they can !
The food was excellent with varied menus linked to the area we were sailing using local produce
The entertainment was very good, much better than the larger HAL ships which surprised us. We would certainly go back on this ship again.

MS Statendam

Peter Hunter from Treharris 4 Star Rating

Old meets new. This ship has a traditional feel to it. The theatre is grand, the décor elegant and the

Technology on show state of the art.

This is a 5* ship and this brings a certain expectation regarding the food, service and general up keep

Of the ship. This liner ticks all of the boxes.

You will find MS Statendam has very unique and exotic itineraries as she is not the largest ship in the

World smaller ports become a viable option.

Updated in 2010 you will find all of the modern comforts that you would expect on the larger liners.

MS Ryndam

Sara Robbins from Fife 4 Star Rating

We recently cruised on board the Ryndam with Holland America. We stayed in a verandah suite and have to say, this is the best stateroom I have ever been in on any cruise. The stateroom was spacious, elegant and luxurious. There was a fabulous whirlpool bath which goes to show the amount of space, even in the bathroom! The elegance of the stateroom was accentuated throughout the ship with pristine décor and gorgeous furnishings throughout. The Pinnacle Grill was superb. The seafood there was the best ever. So fresh and tasty. Another we were really impressed with was the freedom of the dining. With Holland America being a 5* cruise line we expected a traditional approach to cruising. However this was not the case at all and we found it very relaxed which was fantastic! We were able to do our thing each evening without being restricted to a set time each night. All in all – a marvellous cruise on a marvellous cruise ship. We will be back and will be back for longer too!
