Good Service; the staterooms need work

Sail Date: March 23, 2007

Reviewed: 10 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The condition of the ship's staterooms was poor. There were no announcements to inform passengers to things such as arrival at ports, where to go for disembarkments or when disembarkments could be made.

Pros: Dining Room Staff

Cons: menus, ship's condition, no announcements to inform passengers

Recommends Volendam? No.

Food and Dining
The menu was made up of items which did not appeal to many people. The shrimp cocktail was only offered once. There were alot of "pasta" and chicken type meals
Cabin / Stateroom
In our cabin the toilet kept plugging up, the A/C was not working properly. The other guests at our table reported the same problems in their cabins. Also the in room radio did not work which did not allow us to hear the PA sysytem
The activities are geared toward an older group that goes to bed very early
Ship Quality
The ship was very clean. The staff was very atoned to disinfecting. There were hand sanitizers all over the ship. The Casino was very small. Smokers have very areas to go to smoke.
Service and Staff
The Dining Room Staff is above excellent
The beach is mostly coral and rocky
Oranjestad, Aruba
snorkeling at De Palm Island is the best. The parrot fish are the biggest I have ever seen They are beautifully colored and come right up to you
Don't Miss: De Palm Island - The Ticket to Paradise Excursion
Colon, Panama
The trip through the locks of the Panama Canal is a must do
Don't Miss: Rain Forrest Aireal Tram
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica

Don't Miss: The boat ride in the Tortuguero Canals
