I'll be on the Statendam shortly. Just wondering about their pools. Are they heated and are they fresh water?
Thanks much!

Ahoy!
It's been several years since cruising on the Statendam but if memory serves me correctly the fore pool (Lido) was freah water and the aft pool was saltwalter. No heating at that time. They also need to dump the water in the pools at night occassioanly due to the depth of various ports visited, weather conditions and routine maintenance. I'm sure someone who has recently cruised the Statendam can give more up-to-date information. Have a great cruise!

Bon Voyage and Good Health!

Yes, I'm hoping someone who's recently cruised aboard the Statendam will comment. I do prefer the pool near the stern. I can't imagine they wouldn't heat all the pools on their Alaska cruises, but maybe they don't.

There's almost always one fresh water pool and one salt, and typically 1 of the 2 pools will be heated.

I would imagine the open aft pool would be the heated one.

As the lido pool is the "family friendly" pool, I would guess that might be the fresh water one.

Ultimately I think it comes down to the captain's decision.
