A Great Fall Getaway
Volendam Cruise Review to Caribbean - Southern
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review SummaryThe Volendam was beautifully decorated and made us feel as if we were staying at an exclusive resort. Hand sanitizer was located throughout the ship. Also, laundry washing and drying facilities were available, which we took advantage of because of the length of the cruise (10 nights).We have sailed on more than ten cruises and this cruise was one of the best. We sailed ten nights but could have sailed longer. We hated to disembark the ship.
Food and Dining
Activities on board included bingo, cooking demonstrations, wine tasting, karaoke, dancing, kitchen tours, indoor cycling, trivia, golf putting and many other exciting activities. A winning bingo card could win you a free cruise; however, we were not winners. The cruise staff performed for us on one of the nights. The Wajang Theater was available and showed recently released movies with complimentary popcorn.
Service and Staff
The staff was friendly and helpful and always approached you with a smile. Room service was available twenty-four hours a day and a ten dollar a day gratuity included all services except drinks.
