We recently returned from a 10 day cruise on the MS Volendam to the Western Caribbean and Panama Canal and embarked from Fort Lauderdale. Fort Lauderdale is an excellent embarkation point, with the cruise terminal and airport only being a a few miles apart. This was our 4th HAL cruise and the Volendam is very similar to the other HAL ships we have traveled on (Ryndam and Rotterdam). Overall, we ...

My cruise on the Volendam was for the most part a wonderful experience! On arrival it was easy checking in and one of the staff gave me a tour around the ship. It was very helpful to know where to find the places I like to go to best. The food was fabulous and I love the new open seating in the dining room for dinner. Made it easier to plan where you would like to eat dinner each day. Very ...

My wife and I just returned from a fantastic 10 day Panama Canal cruise on the Volendam. We were with 2 other couples (my wife's sister her husband and our best friends from Austin, Texas) and we all had the same fantastic time on this cruise. The following is my review of the cruise but it will also contain some comments by the other couples with us. Overall I would have rate this cruise as a ...

Before I begin, let me tell you what I was looking for on this cruise. After nearly three years as a full-time student while working full time AND then prepping for and passing the Project Management Professional exam, I was looking for total relaxation. My goal was to achieve the highest state of relaxation one can enjoy and still maintain a pulse. So, if you're looking for a review of the shows ...

Western Caribbean, Volendam March 25 to April 4, 2004 By: DougMacP@aol.com Before sailing on her I began to think of the Volendam as the Cinderella of the HAL fleet. For a fleeting moment in time she was the largest ship in the HAL fleet. From there her fortunes changed. Eclipsed by the Rotterdam class and the new "Vista" class she and her sister the Zaandam seem to become the forgotten middle ...

First Time Cruiser

This was my fourth cruise with HAL although only my second in recent years. The first two were in 1952 when I was 7 years old. Perhaps at least in part because I am Dutch by birth, I find I feel right "at home" in the HAL ships. Most of the people I met were delightful. There was a small contingent that I would tag as "chronic complainers" and a few I would put in the category of "The Ugly ...
