Per the request of some on this board regarding whether or not I should post a review of the Statendam as I have only cruised once and have nothing to compare it to; please see my review posted in the ship reviews section.
Joyce, you don;' need anything else to compare it to. Your impressions and thoughts are just a valid as someone who has done dozens of cruises. We appreciate your review and I for one intend on reading it.
I went to read the review, but it isn't there yet. Just wanted you to know that it usually takes a while before it's up and available for everyone to read. Don't worry. They will get it in there for you.
As you probably know, your review has already shown up on one of those "other" websites. I would say you did a pretty good job for a novice. Besides your initial bad treatment, it sounds like you had a good cruise. Well done, DLJW!
