How better to enhance your onboard experience than to provide incomparable cuisine in a variety of wonderful ways. Bountiful buffets and dress-up dinners, hors d'oeuvres on your verandah or a picnic on the beach are just a few of the dining options awaiting you aboard a Holland America Line cruise vacation aboard Volendam.
The Holland America Line fleet of premium cruise ships offers so many entertainment venues you're in for the night of your life night after night. Following a day of sightseeing or an afternoon massage, enhance your onboard experience with evenings of foot-tapping entertainment, side-splitting laughs or romantic moonlit dancing.
Holland America Line's EXC (Explorations Central) initiative has also been introduced to the ship, which means even more entertainment options for guests. Cultural classes, an extensive library collection, and customized guidance from local experts are just some of the ways in which passengers will be able to embrace and get to know the places they will be visiting.

Very interesting, great crew, wonderful customer service. I enjoyed every minute.t
We travel to the Panama Canal from San Diego ending in Fort Lauderdale 15 days later. We had 6 days at sea which was too much as very little to do on board and very repetitive. The show in the evening were average.one big plus was the very good food on board as well as great service.
went on the Far East Cruise from Singapore to Hong Kong. we had a great time but there were some gripes that most of the passengers had. 1. Wifi on board is very expensive $55 for 100mins, and very slow reminded me of dial up. took 6 mins to send 1 email. Dont bother and wait till your in port and use the free wifi in coffee shops. theirs is blazingly fast 50-100meg. 2. Drinks are expensive $6.50 for a tin of tiger beer ( cheapest ), small glass of cheap wine $8 plus they add 15% service charge to everything purchased, even a bottle of water $3.25 plus 15%. In Vietnam we bought 4 tins of tiger beer for $1.60 in a shop. 3. Trips were very good and well organised but you paid a premium for them. some were $180 per person for a 4 hour trip spent mostly on a coach. 4. On gala nights we were told to wear shirt, tie and a jacket as a minimum, but quite a few wore jeans and a T shirt and nothing was said. we thought why bother packing posh clothes if they cant be bothered to adhere to it. 5. Entertainment was good but only lasted 40 mins, if a guest came on they done their act and that was it. they could have used the ships resident entertainers to add to the show. gala nights we felt dressed up and nowhere to go. 6. when you arrive in port there are no announcements of where to disembark the ship. it uses 1 of 3 exits which are miles apart and everyone wanders up and down the corriders trying to find the correct exit. 7. on other cruises when you arrive in port they give out maps so you can locate where the town and sights are. we asked reception have they any maps and they said no you have to work it out for yourselfs. Theres few more but my fingers are giving up ,,, other than these gripes we had a good time made up by the friendly crew and the great locations we visited..
Fantastic service. Excellent choice of food and excellent quality. Staff in the Rotterdam dining room were superb. Spotlessly clean. Staff very friendly, accommodating and professional. Tours offered by Holland America were expensive. 15% service charge on drinks was outrageous! The bar staff must have been on incentives for sales of drinks. Internet service also expensive so we didn't bother. (Most good hotels offer this free).
