First Time Cruisers

Sail Date: November 13, 2006

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Being first time cruisers we didn't really know what to expect. Imagine our pleasure when we were treated royally by the staff and crew of the beautiful ms Volendam. Everything exceeded our expectations from the very comfortable stateroom to the absolute efficiency of the staff and crew. The food was prepared to satisfy the most exacting gourmet and served with the most professional demeanor. We took advantage of every opportunity to go ashore and enjoy every port of call and were never disappointed by any of the on-shore excursions offered. We were also surprised at the many on board activities provided by the entertainment crew as well as the nightly shows in the Franz Hals Lounge. Having the option of varied activities or just doing nothing but soaking up the sun at the various pools and other lounging areas made the that we could tailor to our own personal enjoyment. Yes, this was our first cruise but it certainly won't be our last and you can bet we'll make sure we cruise with Holland America the next time.

Pros: The friendliness and efficiency of the crew

Recommends Volendam? Yes!

Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We took a tour of the city and then went to Meghans Bay beach, a beautiful place to swim and sun.
Curacao
We took a tour of the city and had a very nice lunch on the water there.
Oranjestad, Aruba
Unfortunately a downpour the morning of our arrival in Aruba rendered the streets almost impassable and almost all on shore excursions were cancelled so our experience with Aruba was less than ideal.

Roseau, Dominica
We went river tubing in Dominica and enjoyed the lush landscape. This was a lot of fun and a very well organized excursion.
