Soprano who was our statesroom attendant was always efficient maintaining our room. He is ultimate crew member who was always smiling whenever he sees the patrons on the cruise.

Cabin / Stateroom

Comfortable. Clean. The safety box was not used, as using our credit cards was skeptical and the box should be updated.

Ship tip

Go to the library to have a very good view and sit among a variety of books. The Volendam is the best ship to steer us closer to the glaciers and Tracy Arm! Thank you!
