Embarkation day was great, lines were very short and moved quickly, check-in was fast,and they started letting us on the ship at 11:30. And we went right to deck 8 to get something to eat. Our cabin was on deck 3 it was an totally obstructed ocean view..it was fine, we had no idea that Volendam just came out of dry dock 2 weeks prior, and the ship looked great! Our bathroom was all re-done, ...

After sailing on the Eurodam in March, 2019 on an extended cruise to the south pacific, we were hoping that the Volendam would be an improvement concerning food quality. We were pleasantly surprised and did not have a single issue on the Volendam the entire cruise. We are 4 Star Mariners and have sailed with Holland America for many years and have recently seen major issues with food quality; this ...

Background Information: We live in FL and have been on 9 cruises in the past two years. This is the third one on HAL. Embarkation: We drove to the port and left the car in the Park & Fly lot. Very handy with fast shuttle to the ship. Arrived at the pier at about 2:00 PM and was on board in about 20 minutes. Very efficient staff.

We live in Florida, so we drove to Ft. Lauderdale. We spent the night at the Hampton Inn on Commercial Blvd. We like this motel because it is very clean, reasonable in price, has a nice serving area with coffee and tea 24/7 and has a good, complimentary breakfast in the mornings. Newspapers are furnished, an in house computer for checking e-mail is always set up , a Steak and Ale is close as are ...

This was our first HA cruise. Have tried Carnival and Royal Caribbean in the past. We expected the "white glove" service advertised by HAL. Embarkation went smoothly for us, but we didn't arrive at the port until about 2pm. Check in was much slower than usual, we were told, due to a new computer system. Passengers arriving earlier stood in very long lines; perhaps it's better to come on board ...

Traveled with six other people. It was our sixth cruise in as many years. Had previously been with Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, and Princess cruise lines. The Volendam was a complete disappointment. The food was poor to average. Not a single meal could be called memorable in a positive manner. The entertainment was unimaginative. One night's entertainment consisted of a ventriloquist, another ...
