Cabin: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Our voyage on the MS Volendam was short, but sweet! This ship is still in very good shape. It is scheduled for another retrofit next month.

We flew to Vancouver to join the ship on it's transition from Alaska to the Caribbean. Many people on this voyage were settling in for the extended Panama Canal cruise. We had limited time as we had another trip planed, so we decided to take the 6 night cruise from Vancouver to San Diego.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Uptown Hotel in Vancouver. It's only 4 miles (12 minutes to the cruise terminal) and is about half the price of the downtown properties. We found it clean, friendly and in a very nice neighborhood filled with restaurants.

Cabin Review

Large Ocean-View Stateroom

Cabin H

The cabin itself has nice space. The cabins need to be retrofitted as they are very dated. The TVs are very small and need to be replaced with plasma screens. The safe is still from years ago, having to use a magnetic striped card to open and shut.

The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The bathrooms have been refurbished and were excellent, with plenty of space in the shower.
