Fantastic Panama Canal Cruise by LJRF

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

This was a trip of a lifetime for us, we loved it. We stayed on the ship until Vancouver, it was actually a 20 day cruise not a 17 day. And if I had a complaint it was that the staff assumed we would get off in San Francisco, and it was almost like the cruise ended there, even though half the ship stayed on.

This Crew #1 by Itsa

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

This was the 2nd leg of a b2b which we had never done before. Everything about these voyages was extraordinary. The Captain set the tone, and the crew were obviously happy to be there. I'd follow the crew - not the ship!

Trip of a Lifetime by HeidiMonkey

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

It is a cruise I will remember forever and would like to do again someday. Holland America will have my patronage again and again because of the amazing experience we had. Don't forget to have the Canal rolls during the morning of the transit. They are AMAZING!

So glad to be home... by beckybenayas

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

Will not take another cruise on this ship as we feel it is very outdated. Have cruised several years on Holland America but sadly disappointed with the way this cruise turned out. Always do a private balcony but feel like our money spent was not deserving of what our experience was.

The trip met our objectives for an enjoyable 30 days in warm weather. Many of the visited ports are industrial ports Holland America tried to rectify this situation through the use of shuttle buses by redmen66

Ship: Volendam / Destination: South America

Good food, good entertainment, unique items to purchase at very reasonable prices, friendly people, warm weather. Much better than a trip to Florida to be in warm weather

A bucket list item completed. The trip was everything, and actually much more, than I anticipated. by Ynottimothy

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

It was a wonderful ship cruise I would mark as absolutely necessary for every human being who wishes for more than just the cruise at sea experience and the sights thereof. The historical endeavors of governments, individuals, and the hard labor of men and women to achieve a true wonder of all time, the Panama Canal, is beyond description in this cruise. Holland America brought to us (especially by dedicated individuals like Captain Turner, Jude and Justin) all one can possibly expect in a cruise plus an educational historical summary of all the areas visited to include entertainment and relaxation beyond description. This cruise was fulfilling, exciting, adventurous, and luxurious beyond my expectations. I extend my personal heartfelt thanks to Holland America and all of the Volendam cruise ship crew.

Back to Back Panama Canal Cruise by BbJp

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

Cruise was OK. Not totally impressed with Holland America. Best for elderly passengers. No real fun activities onboard. Most staff was very polite and friendly. Elevators were very quick. Some areas of the ship are FREEZING COLD. Bring a sweater!! Trying to enjoy a drink in a freezing cold bar (Crow's Nest) or enjoy the show on the Main Stage and feeling sooooo chilly is very annoying.

The cruise provided great shipboard fun and excursion activities. Very diverse food choices and settings. Excursions were offered for all types of people. The towel sculptures were a hoot!

Panama Canal Cruise by fabnan

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Volendam / Destination: Coastal - West Coast

Cruise was great. Some ports of call in Mexico could be elimated because there were only few excursion choices. Lived Puerto Vallarta, Aruba and Curaçao.
