last time by thecaptainpaul

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: South America

Amazon was amazing, but time on ship was dull. Cruise director had no personality, not suited to job!! Entertainment was horrible for a 30 day cruise. Only high point was Billboard stage. Only 7 menus rotated 4 times

An Amazon Adventure for sure by bumpercarr

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: South America

We really enjoyed this cruise and it knocked one of those things off of our bucket list. It was certainly an adventure. Between the tender issues, running aground on the river and our fabulous eco lodge tour, it will be a cruise that we'll never forget.

Volendam was Fabulous by ColoradoSteve

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

The Volendam recently came out of dry dock, and HAL installed several new venues, furniture, carpets, and reworked some of the older venues. We loved this cruise on this ship!!!

Ship: Volendam / Destination: Caribbean

The cruise was great for relaxing and visiting some of our favorite beaches in the Caribbean. We were fortunate because the weather was perfect each day.

Exciting Panama Cruise by mkmooredvm

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Panama Canal, Central America

As mentioned earlier this ship was on a relocation cruise headed for dry dock in the Bahamas. Service may have been curtailed because of this. They did the best they could but the trip was still enjoyable. There was a good variety of shore excursions available. The temperature of the ship was colder than was necessary.

Perfect Alaska cruise! by JenJenny

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Despite the issues we encountered, I would go on the ship again. I think it was just poor management at the time that caused our issues. Probably the situation would be different now.

Beautiful part of the world. by juliehills

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

We had a wonderful time on the cruise although, within our group of friends (10) people, all of us had some sort of issue to deal with at the guest services desk. I think this if very poor, as we stayed in hotels around Canada for the 3 weeks prior to coming on this cruise and never once did we have any issue with any of the hotels we stayed at. On that note, as good a time as we had on the cruise, we would think twice before going on a Holland America cruise in the future.

Absolutely the WORST experience I have ever had!!!!!! by FrJ

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

I expected much more from this cruise line. They did not deliver, on anything! I have even completed their online survey immediately after returning & they have continued to ignore me. I have receive no response from them in a month. I even reached out to them again recently to ensure that they had received my survey. $ days have passed & I have again been ignored. I would NOT recommend this line to anyone!!!!!

Trip Of A Lifetime! by hmc4530

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

I would take the same cruise on the same ship again! HAL did not disappoint! Don't go on a larger ship because you won't be able to get into Glacier Bay! Can't wait to go on our next HAL cruise! Bermuda again? Canada/New England?

Best Trip Ever by ppotte

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

It was such a wonderful cruise, our first, but I hope not our last. It was more casual than I expected and I was disappointed that the gala nights weren’t more gala and that the dining room wasn’t fancier and didn’t have live music and dancing, at least on gala nights. My Aunt used to cruise a lot with Holland and it was different then.

Wonderful time in Alaska by callejarode

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Alaska - Inside Passage

Not happy about the service charges. Would be nice if crew was paid a living wage. Come to find out that the service charges are shared by all and not the person or persons providing the service.
