The Volendam that sails today wasn't even built in the 80's. She was built around 1999. The Veendam that today sails for HAL joined the fleet about 1997 or so.
Through the years, HAL has had an occassional stop in Bermuda but not as a part of a regular itinerary. A once a year type repositioning cruise or such might have had a port call.
