3 out of 5

16 nights of fun in Asia

Sail Date: December 01, 2013

Reviewed: 2 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is nice but a bit outdated for today's expectations. Technology has passed this ship's current capabilities: example 1 - limited number of people accessing the internet at the same time; 2 - wifi access was spotty for android and smartphone use; 3 - who uses DVDs to watch movies? The movie selections were dated and not available because the DVD wasn't returned. Another issue was our first impression of the room was a torn pillow case and improperly installed curtains.

Pros: Seeing SE Asia with all the comforts of a cruise ship without the hassles of changing hotels.

Cons: Difficulty with shore excursions and ports of call being quite far from major attractions

Recommends Volendam? Yes!

Ship Quality
This is a nice size ship for extended cruising - large enough to have some variety yet small enough to feel like you know your way around without getting lost.
Food and Dining
We liked the dining room experience better than the buffet.
Cabin / Stateroom
Nice size room and bathroom. The decor was adequate although it had outdated color schemes especially in the bathroom.
Service and Staff
Entertainment
Generally good with exception of Dancing with Stars which was lame
