From embarkation to disembarkation this cruise was fun and easy. There were no hassles at all.Being a smaller ship it was easy to make friends and after 24 days you start to get to know most faces. The food was amazing and service excellent as usual. The only thing i could complain about is the activities during the day were sparse, many people were complaining about being bored but i think that ...

This type of report is unavoidably subjective. I have read on this and other forums reports about the same cruise by different authors and it is hard to believe that they were actually on the same ship at the same time. The following are therefore my views only and I'm sure that other passengers from this voyage of the Volendam would disagree with me on just about every point I make. I took ...

Advantage to being on the bottom is less ship ...

In a lot of ways, the whole exceeded the sum of the parts as we had a wonderful time (despite a number of little issues) because of very good weather (other than cyclones at the end), exotic ports of call, and a great crew. Embarkation was a non-event for this cruise, as we had done the ship's previous cruise to NZ -- getting off and back on in Sydney was a breeze. Disembarkation was also smooth ...

This was our second cruise after a 7 nighter a year ago with Royal Caribbean. Our children are 4 and 7 and were very excited about another cruise. I'll focus on the experience of cruising with kids in this review. We got to Circular Quay about 2ish. Getting on the ship was totally painless, went through the formalities etc and got our passports checked (for the one and only time the whole ...
