Ken, per a few of your questions.
Me on the right with Carolyn at one of two formal dress nights at the
Rotterdam two level restaurant.
Me on Creek St. in Ketchikan.
Ken, perhaps these two shots make the ship look larger.
Our stateroom is the last porthole on the first row above the pier. You can tell from the stern lines that we didn't require a wake up call when arriving early in morning in port as all the noisy winching machines were right behind our room. Also could hear a low level rhythmic hum of the engines at cruising speed. Noisier when running slow in some areas or coming in to port. The Rotterdam Restaurant is where the ladder in center covers the two decks.
Stateroom 833 on starboard side near stern, lowest passenger deck 4, A Deck.
Crows Nest Lounge, panoramic room above the bridge, big dance floor for disco at night. Sometimes live band. View is to bow.
Hope this helps gives a better concept of the Statendam.
