CARIBBEAN CRUISE ITINERARY
HOLLAND AMERICA’S “NIEUW”-EST SHIP
Holland America’s sparkling new Nieuw
Statendam offers our 2650 RSVP guests more of what you
love, upgraded with cutting-edge innovations and brilliant
modern design everywhere you turn. With more dining options
than ever before, sensational entertainment venues, and
simply gorgeous staterooms, she’s the perfect ship for an
RSVP Caribbean cruise! Spacious open decks and inviting
pools offer plenty of places work on your tan, finish a
great book, meet new friends, and of course set the stage
for our signature T-dances and extremely silly pool gaymes!
KEY WEST & THE CARIBBEAN AWAIT
From gay-friendly Ft. Lauderdale you’ll sail to our private
island of Half Moon Cay, always an RSVP favorite for a day
on a perfect private beach. Head south with a relaxing day
at sea to enjoy all that Nieuw
Statendam has to offer. Fascinating Grand Cayman offers
more to do than any other island in the Caribbean, from
picture-perfect white sand beaches to superior duty-free
shopping to swimming with the rays at the famous Stingray
City. Some of the world’s best snorkeling and diving await
you in Cozumel, or spend the day basking in endless sunshine
surrounded by crystal blue waters. And after one more
action-packed day at sea, there’s no better ending to an
RSVP cruise than a day in legendary Key West, where the
locals turn out in force to welcome us to Duval street and
showcase both the island’s amazing weirdness and natural
MORE FUN THAN EVER ONBOARD
The best days on RSVP yours to enjoy at sea. Start with a
lazy brunch with friends. Wander up to Nieuw
Statendam’s sunny decks, sparkling pools, and
whirlpools to play and relax. Treat yourself to a treatment
in the modern and inviting Greenhouse Spa. Take in a fitness
class or work out in the super-modern gym. Or get your game
on at our outdoor volleyball court. Just save some energy
for RSVP’s signature T-dances, pool games, and general good
times all day long.
INCREDIBLE DINING OPTIONS EVERYWHERE
It’s easier than ever to share a meal with friends old and
new onboard, with more choices than any ship in RSVP’s
history. The two-story ultra-modern main restaurant features
an ever-changing menu of international specialties in an
Adam Tihany designed space that’s truly one of the most
beautiful rooms at sea. It’s the perfect place for
everything from a group of friends to an intimate dinner for
two. And that’s just the beginning!
Nieuw Statendam features five distinctive specialty
restaurants catering to virtually every palette and desire,
starting with the classic Pinnacle Grill steakhouse and
Tamarind’s pan-Asian cuisine. Fresh seafood is the star at
the all-new Sel de Mer, and you’ll find family-style rustic
Italian at Canaletto. For something more casual, forget
everything you’ve heard about cruise ship buffets — the new
Lido Market turns out a never-ending spread day and night
that will keep you coming back for more.
And of course, each meal on RSVP is designed to be relaxed
with no assigned dining times and no stuffy dress codes.
BRIGHT STARS ON THE BEST STAGES
The sensational new and stunningly modern World Stage and
the two-story BB Kings showcases RSVP’s signature performers
like never before as we present top talent from the LGBT
world, stage and screen, alongside Holland America’s
award-winning productions. RSVP’s stellar line-up of musical
artists, comedians, cabaret acts has included such legends
as Kathy Najimy, Ann Hampton Callaway, Leslie Jordan, and Ty
Herndon along with RSVP favorites Amy & Freddy, Bob the Drag
Queen and so many more. And for our 35th anniversary we’re
introducing some exciting new stars at every level!
The brand-new music walk offers seemingly endless musical
experiences, from RSVP piano and cabaret stars to the
classical showcase Lincoln Center Stage to Billboard
Onboard’s chart-busting hits to the raucous Rolling Stone
Rock Room. Add some movies under the stars, poolside
concerts and a few surprises for the greatest set of
entertainment RSVP has ever offered!
FRIENDLY PARTIES. FOR EVERYONE.
Nieuw Statendam’s wide-open center pool creates the
perfect setting for RSVP’s fantastic themed T-dances and
evening parties under an endless Caribbean sky (with a
retractable dome three floors up — just in case of
inclement weather). Our talented DJs play everything from
today’s hits to legendary disco, and just about everything
in between. No matter what your taste in music, we’ll
welcome you to the party with friends like you everywhere
you turn. It’s all about having a great time with friends!
