We booked the Volendam just yesterday. This will be our very first HAL cruise. I would like to know as much as possible about Volendam. We will on the 11/15 - 11/25 Thanksgiving cruise. I have cruised other lines, but not HAL. Anything you can share will be greatly appreciated! Please Help!!
I love to cruise and HAL is my favorite line. We have been on 4 of their ships and the Volendam will be our next one.
Like Kuki said please read the reviews on the ship here.
From my personal experience; we are middle age with grown children.
We do not like the noisy teen, late night parting and the messages over the speakers while enjoying the trip. This is why we like HAL. it is subdued, refined and nicly decorated.
If you have kids go to Disney line, or Carnival.
The lifestyle we used to have was crazy and now it is peaceful while on a cruise.
