Great People; The Ship, Not So Much
"We are 4 star Mariners which means- among other things- we have sailed on a variety of Holland America ships. As always the staff and crew were outstanding. Our cabin steward was one of the best we have had. We were..."Read More

My mother chose this line as she had travelled with Holland America previously. It is a good way to see countries in Asia: Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and then stop in Hong Kong. The ship itself was comfortable. The food in the Lido was so so, but the dining room food was better. It would be nice if there was a breakfast bar for smoothies, etc as a healthy alternative to fried bacon, eggs, ...

Second time with HAL, we were concerned about the length of the voyage at 28 days. But at the end, 28 days journey has gone by fast. We find this is one of the more enjoyable trips we experienced. The itinerary was good, there is enough at sea time to rest up, especially traveling in warm weather regions. During the voyage, HAL has a very good program on excursion and shore activities by the ...

Warning, if you're not a foodie the first few paragraphs will bore you! FOOD & DINING VENUES I am a lowly two-star mariner, but know the ropes of HAL cruising and had been going to the specialty restaurants to reduce my meals in the MDR on past cruises. After reading so much about HAL's cost-cutting measures I thought I'd be disappointed with my meals, but instead was pleasantly surprised. ...

We needed a cruise that would fit in with my husband's work commitments and had a suitable itinerary. This cruise fit the bill and as we had sailed on the Volendam before, we were happy to book the cruise.Embarkation in Singapore was smooth quick and efficient. We had an oceanview stateroom, midships, as I can suffer from motion sickness. The cruise was fairly calm and the only movement I felt ...

Chose this cruise primarily for the itinerary. My wife and I have been to several of the places around the world that HAL travels and this one has certainly been on my bucket list. I gave this particular cruise 4 stars rather that 5 specifically due to some disappointment with the ship. As usual the crew, the service, and food were excellent but I was a little disappointed in the ship ...

Wanted some warmth and sunshine and chose this cruise as a different experience from the Caribbean. Weather was very good until the last few days but didn't prevent us from some very interesting excursions. Service and accommodation on the ship was excellent and we met many lovely people too. Entertainment was varied but always enjoyable. Dining was very enjoyable - able to turn up when ...

My husband and I chose this cruise because we have never been to Asia and thought it would be a great addition to cruises we have already taken. We were not disappointed. The ports were well worth seeing and the educational component was beyond our wildest dreams. The Volendam is a mid sized ship and had a refit in December, 2017. The dining was wonderful. Crew = as always - were amazing. ...

This was our second Asian voyage in two years aboard Volendam, and we enjoyed this very interesting 28-day itinerary to many of Asia's most important destinations. Our ocean view cabin on Main Deck was comfortable and spacious but showing its age. It was definitely in need of a refit. The bathroom was fine but there was mould on the shower curtain and in the grout around the tub enclosure. We ...

We choose the 14-day Indonesian leg of a longer 28 day cruise on the Volendam as we were booked on a 16 day land excursion to Vietnam and Cambodia on January 3; this coincided with the end of the Singapore - Singapore Indonesian cruise beginning 12/20/16. Our flight arrangements were already made to Singapore so after considering the very attractive price that HA was offering we decided to ...

The itinerary was the main reason for choosing Hal, and my last cruise with them was 2003. So the rose coloured glasses came off pretty quick the first day when half the food choices for us were quite ordinary. At night some of the menu items were also suspect, but we quickly came to pick thru the choices, so most of our meals then were wonderful. The decor of the ship was top notch, and the ...
