MS Volendam Reviews

Jack Rowe

star rating

My 4th cruise with Holland America line and they didnt let us down. The service is the best I have ever had out of the 13 Cruises I have been on. The Phillippino Crew are so helpful and courteous nothing was ever too much trouble for them. My wife was hungry at 1am and room service came 15 minutes from ordering, nice and hot with a flower made out of a napkin alongside the plate. It made my wifes day.

The ship itself is stunning, The theme is different on all their ships. Gardens was the Volendams theme. The flowers onboard were amazing along with the Art collections.

Shes a nice mid-sized ship and actually looks like a ship rather than these huge monsters on the Seas nowadays. Call me old fashioned if you will but I do think they sail with the waves as there was no motion.

We stayed in a Deluxe Verandah Stateroom and had a choice of pillows along with DVD library if we needed it. The space was adequate but then we didnt sit in the cabin too much, not with all the choices onboard.

The food is 5* along with the ship. My wife is a Vegetarian and she always feels like they have made an effort rather than thrown a Rissotto together of a stuffed tomato!

Looking forward to next year as weve already booked our next one. If there is anyone out there who likes Celebrity or Cunard, try Holland America, you may be surprised?

I’ve just returned from my birthday cruise on Volendam. What an amazing time……the standard of service onboard was 5* all the way. Talulah, my cabin steward made my trip memorable. Leaving me nice surprises in the cabin, a chicken with sunglasses on, a monkey hanging from the light, all made from my towel, it did make me smile. She would cater to my every need, even opening the cabin door for me when she saw me walking down the corridor.

I had a double cabin to myself and found plenty of space for everything.

A nice clean comfortable cabin, what more could you ask for,

I visited Alaska on my trip, and the scenery was breath taking, I even went on a shore excursion to a glacier in a canoo!! I thought I’d be freezing but its quite a pleasant surprise to reach out and touch a glacier and not feel cold.

I tried Reindeer sausage (still deciding if I liked it?) went on a helicopter trip over the glaciers (out of this world) and watched a movie in the cinema at Juneau…….

All in all I think I picked a great ship and a great destination. Holland America don’t cut corners and I will definitely recommend them to anyone.
