Best Trip Ever

May 25th, 2019

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.

Fantastic Panama Canal Cruise

May 24th, 2019

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.

Wonderful time in Alaska

May 20th, 2019

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.

Ms Volendam This is one of those ships you totally call fall in love with. It a classy elegant liner giving you the true classic cruise feeling. It was our first cruise and we had a great time. Since we are younger many ask us if we where the artists. Even the crew thought so. We are not but what we like from HAL is the cultural en informative entertainment. Besides the big shows ;) BCC earth on the main stage was our absolute favorite. We loved the opening dining with different couples. It’s a great way to learn people and hear the most interesting stories. We had a vista suite and it was absolutely great. The room stewards keeps the room up to date. I was also a bit afraid since it’s a older ship. But absolutely no need too. The itinerary from Japan to Alaska to Vancouver was very interesting with Glacier Bay as an absolute highlight.

Panama Canal Full Transit

The highlight of any Panama Canal Cruise is the Canal. The other ports were fine but some we decided not to take an excursion, nothing interested us. Very enjoyable cruise.
