This was our second Volendam cruise. We left on Thanksgiving day and were totally disappointed with Turkey dinner which was dry and the stuffing had to have been measured out with a melon ball scoop (one scoopful). Overall the cruise was excellent, service attentive and maintenace of ship was superb. We enjoyed the ambiance of this smaller ship. We were, however unhappy with the blatant disregard for restricting smoking to designated areas and the lack of attention on the lower promenade deck where glasses and dishes were left all day, broken lounges left all day and the total absence of any drink service.
