Review summary

We only sailed once before for three days about 25 years ago with our two children. That cruise was to the Bahamas. The Volendam is an older ship but the entire crew from the Captain to the stewards were most gracious. Also very witty with plenty of humor. The folks we met on the ship that cruise a lot told us we had made a good choice as this is one of the better cruise lines. We enjoyed it very much.
