Ship Facts: Volendam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Volendam Deck Plans
Good cruise

we are first time cruisers with Holland America. was interesting to be on a smaller ship, only problem with smaller ships is when sea is rough you feel the movement of the ship more. The ship was well maintained, but found that crew would be cleaning the decks either early evening or in morning just before breakfast, so decks were wet, especially aft deck near Lido restaurant.

Food was very good, we ate most of our evening meals in the Rotterdam restaurant, service was very good. it was lovely that all the ladies received a red rose in the dining room on Valentines Day....nice touch!! the ports were good, but the travel time from the port of Laem Chabang into Bangkok is around 2 hours. it actually took over 3 hours getting back to the ship..........beware! do your tours on first day in Bangkok as the traffic jams are horrible.

The staff seemed to go that extra mile to make the passengers feel at home and well looked after. the entertainment wasn't too bad ( not as good as larger ships)

our cabin was very noisy....cabin no. 3374 on Lower Promenade, mid ship. lot of engine noise. we paid the extra for an unobstructed view, but had railings in front of window. were also on the deck that everyone used for their morning constitutional...... front desk were extremely helpful and we were moved to another cabin. it was on the dolphin deck (lowest deck) but it was a larger cabin and we had a better view!

We would cruise again with Holland America...found the experience very relaxing!
