  1. We highly recommend SPB. Fabulous 2 day tour in St Petersburg. Getting you back on time is critical to their bottom line.
  2. We’ve done this. The one we did also stops on a little island with birds and a gator show...super fun for the kiddos. They serve refreshments as well. https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g34227-d144784-Reviews-Jungle_Queen_Riverboats-Fort_Lauderdale_Broward_County_Florida.html?m=19905
  3. We attended the Orange party on the Nieuw Statendam. It was packed and super fun. Lots of Dutch goodies. I agree the orange party shirt sold on the ship is hideous so I would suggest bringing your own, or a tie or some beads...it’s just a fun excuse to celebrate the heritage of the cruise line and The Netherlands.
  4. Foie Gras....oh so good. The steak frites are awesome as is the Duck Cassoulet. Fresh cod was awesome grilled.
  5. We just came off the Niew Statendam a couple weeks ago. We usually bring our own wine when we cruise but this time brought 8 bottles for our 14 day cruise. We enjoyed the wines on the new list and also some from the Pinnacle. Even in the MDR if you ask they will bring a Pinnacle selection. There was only one wine we did not like(Sokol). Yes, the price points are high, just like any restaurant. I’m more concerned with having a nice selection to choose from. Cheap doesn’t help me if it’s lousy wine.
  6. Thanks for the review. We were on your cruise. We had a great time!
  7. We got a lovely note on the Niew Statendam last week. Pleasant surprise. Also, great job on the laundry which I can’t always say.
  8. Op stated that they ordered a “small” version of the courses.
  9. This is wonderful! We board August 4th. I can hardly stand it! Enjoy and thank you so much for all the detailed information.
