10 Night Sunfarer Caribbean Holiday (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: December 23, 2007
Ship: Volendam
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Family (older children)
Reviewed: 7 years ago
Volendam is "tired". It's only a few months away from being dry docked...and shows. However, like ALL Holland America Ships the rooms are EXCELLENTLY appointed. We had 3 sharing a room and it never felt too crowded. Food as always, brilliant with HAL. Above all, the Fillipino and Indonesian staff are AWESOME!

Not much has changed in Aruba....it has gotten a little dirtier I think. Good port, great place to snorkel.
Don't Miss: Paradise Island

As always a great way to spend a day. It was out first port of call so a great way to start a relaxing holiday. Could clean up the island a little.

Good shopping, pretty port. The floating bridge is very cool.

Make sure you take the bus ride....although lengthy, to see the rain forest.
