Booked this cruise in 2015 as I have wanted to cruise for 40+ years. You know, bucket list and all. Decided on 7 day first as didn't know how we would be on the ocean (motion sickness etc.) None of us (4) got sea sick although the sea was a little rough. Loved the feeling of luxury. Felt like a queen. Everyone was so accommodating. Want to go again. Next time would like to go on the Asian cruise and for 2 weeks at least. MS Volendam was out dream come true. Loved the main dining room and also the Lido deck where you could almost eat all day. Loved the fact that there was someone there to assure everyone used the hand sanitizers before entering the dining rooms so were not cross contaminating anyone. Rained at the ports of call so didn't go off the ship for very long. That was okay because could do whatever you wanted on ship anytime. Even the children that were on board were so good. Never heard any loud chatter etc.

Wonderful time!!
