A ship is what its captain is.. I personally dislike the captain for ruining my Christmass Holidays so\, I dont recomend a cruise with someone as uncaring as he was.

Food and Dining

Great at the pinacle grill.


3 out of 5
I cruised on the Veendam and I seemd to liked their entertaiment more than was presented at the Volendam

Children's Programs

1 out of 5
I took the cruise with my husband and 2 daughters. There was hardly anything for teens or young people

Service and Staff

1 out of 5
Horrible. They left the bay before their scheduled time\, knowing that 4 passengers werent on board.. Can anyone understand this??

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Public bathrooms and elevators needed a little more care.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Even though I asked for rooms located in the middle\, my selling agent told me that there were no more.. this is back in may.. Now I know that wasnt true.. due to the fact that many people purchased their tours in October at discounted rates.

Pros: The people that took care of us at the staterooms and the restaurants

Cons: The atitude and maners of some front office personel and the captain.

Recommends Volendam? No.
