  1. I just returned from a seven night cruise on the Nieuw Statendam. I believe the ice cream station was closed anytime the Lido was closed. There were various times that the Lido was closed. Closed at 8 in the evening, I believe reopened at 10. I try not to eat after 10, so cannot say if the ice cream was available. LThere were several times that the line for ice cream was quite long, once I counted while waiting, 17 Persons. Shorter line for gelato, but there was a separate charge for that.
  2. I was on the 14 day Baltic cruise in September on the Koningsdam. I really enjoyed the food in the Lido. Since I was traveling solo, I prefer to eat dinner in the MDR, but found the food outstanding in the Lido, much better than the MDR. Some of the items would change according to the port. Outstanding German food, lots of pork including a whole small roasted pig, sauerbraten, red cabbage, sausages. Great smoked fish in Sweden, I could go on and on. Always an Asian sti fry cooked to order. By far the best buffet ever on a cruise. So good that I only ate in one of the specialty restaurants, the Die Librije, which took over the Pinnacle one evening. That was quite an experience, but I cannot say that I enjoyed the food any more than the Lido. Although I did get the recommended wines for each course.
  3. Thank you so much for this posting. I will travel on the Koningsdam through the Baltic for 14 nights, not exactly the same ports, but still quite interesting. Very much enjoyed, hope this inspires me to detail my trip.
  4. Wow! I am reserving, should be quite an experience.
  5. has anyone tried this one night restaurant on the Koningsdam ? Worth it?
