Thanks to Statendam’s Safety Officer Dirk van Aarsen for sending in these photos from the ship’s drydock that is underway in the Bahamas.

Here is Statendam with the first primer coating before the blue comes back on:

    It is very surreal to see the Statendam in dry dock. We spent 28-days aboard last January. Do you think they will install modems for IPads and laptops??

    These drydock photos are breath-taking, literally. I’ve sailed on the Statendam twice in the past (and love her!) and will be aboard again when she transits the Panama Canal this April, so those pictures have meaning as well. Especially, I thank you for sharing those scaffolded drydock pics!!…my husband was awed by them as well.
