Anybody been on her recently? Going to Alaska on her in late June, I heard she is going to dry-dock for a week before the Alaska season, is that true?

Thanks

Dry-dock, they "clean-up" the ship. Usually change the carpeting and the worn areas of the ship to make her look "pretty" again... Maybe change some furniture and even re-do some areas that need some attention.

She's going into drydock April 30th through May 14th, so she will be all spruced up by the time you get there.

Volendam is one of my favourite ships.
