We booked this cruise as ports looked great (japan to Vancouver via Alaska) and thought would try holland America line. Overall we enjoyed everything - staff great, food amazing, efficient off and on boat, shows pretty good. A different culture compared to our previous celebrity, princess and royal Caribbean cruises. Found the cruise to be very relaxing with lots of time to read, play games and ...

The Japan to Vancouver 16 day cruise was our fourth on HAL. Volendam is the smallest of the four ships we have been on, but it has all the characteristics of the larger versions and we felt right at home from the outset. The crew is probably the biggest plus - as with all our other HAL experiences, with minor exception, all crew members were friendly, polite and could not have been more ...

This was my fourth cruise on the Volendam in past three years. Last year I did the reverse Sydney to Vancouver so I was well aware of sea days and port calls and quite familiar with the Volendam. Overall it was a pleasant cruise with lots of sea days which I often enjoy more than all the hectic activity of port days. A few observations: The Volendam is well maintained and the ...

This was our 3rd cruise with HAL. The first 2 were on Amsterdam,which immediatly set a high standard, which Volendam couldn't quite attain. More on that later. We had booked this itinerary a couple of years ago, but unfortunately it was chartered away from under us.We ended up doing a 37 day Grand Voyage sector on Amsterdam from Fort Lauderdale to Sydney, which was absolutely magnificent. We ...

Review of the Volendam Food: 1) fine. Could have been spiced some more ; understand it must be reasonably standardized. Had good “special“ days” : Asian Barbecue Day, Indonesian lunch, etc. 2) deserts not particularly good. often dry and tasteless. only ice cream good. improvement here definitely needed 3) As a collector voyage expect menus not to repeat; no such luck ...
