I just got off the Volendam from Alaska and never found any time to be bored. Between ports and viewing from the deck (not to mention all the planned activities) I only found about 6 hours a night to sleep (on one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on). Not to mention the non-stop eating aboard. Never in my life thought I would be at a midnight chocolate buffet,,but there I was. BTW, I can bore very easily.
No movie theater? There must be becouse the Oosterdam (a sister ship) shows movies in the Queen's Lounge. Basically they just renamed the movie theater "Queen's Lounge" and use it for different activities. We had good movies too!
