Default Volendam - Dutch night?

Hi, We are leaving on the Volendam this coming Monday 2/28/05. I have heard that they have a "dress up" Dutch night. Is this true, do people participate? I don't want to end up dragging the 'as close as Dutch' clothes for nothing? Wish I had found this site earlier, it is very helpful. Thanks.

HAL no longer has Dutch night and even when they did, it wasn't a "dress up" night. The menu featured Dutch food items, like dover sole, brisket, herring. Now it's halibut and items.

When we did have Dutch night, women were given white cotton Dutch hats, that made us look like the Flying Nun, and men were given little Dutch Boy black caps (like a baseball cap).

No need to pack your wooden shoes. (smile)

Thank you DeeDee,
I was all ready to cut up my plaid bed sheet! and make my apron out of curtain lace! Now what will I do today .................... lol. I guess I will have to sit here a little longer and read about others people's 'high sea' adventures. Life is so tough!
