Following the Stampeders to Dawson City
Volendam Cruise Review to Alaska - Inside Passage
Sail Date: July 01, 2009
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Traveled As: Singles/Friends
Reviewed: 8 years ago
Review SummaryNot the newest ship and fewer amenities than Princess and Royal Caribbean but quieter and more laid back. We were disappointed that our "partially obstructed view" was actually fully obstructed by a large bulkhead and we were not able to move to another cabin.
Overall the staff were friendly and helpful, the ship was clean and the 4 day trip from Vancouver to Skagway was enjoyable.

Service and Staff
Captain Bols offered some unitended levity when he suggested that if your child fell overboard you should not report it because it would generate too much red tape. His numerous reminders to wash our hands began to smack a little of preschool, but on the positive side, we did not get sick.
