The Holland America Line's ms Statendam doesn't carry great hordes of passengers, which many people prefer. The luxury ship has a "Dutch life and exploration" design theme and is decorated with art and artifacts worth millions. The Statendam used to offer Panama Canal cruise itineraries from Fort Lauderdale.
Amenities on the Statendam include the Pinnacle Grill reservations-only restaurant, Greenhouse Spa, Van Gogh Show Lounge, and the Crow's Nest nightclub. A very popular feature is the Culinary Arts Center, a demonstration kitchen with gourmet cooking classes. Read a Holland America Statendam review.
