Holland America Line

The beautiful ms Volendam offers a world of spacious staterooms, elegant public rooms, expansive teak decks, priceless antiques and the friendly gracious staff for which Holland America is justly famous. At 61,000 tons, she carries just over 1,432 passengers in spacious and pampered luxury. Fifteen different lounges and restaurants are ours to enjoy - from the Main Stage, a two decks high venue that will fill your evenings with entertainment, to the twin levels of the Dining Room with its grand staircase and floor-to-ceiling windows. The classical elegance of the Pinnacle Grill, the Italian Canaletto Restaurant, the Lido Market for casual breakfasts, lunches and dinners, full size movie theatre, a complete casino, card room and numerous intimate lounges for a quiet conversation or a pre-dinner dance. The more recent additions include the Explorations Café with its library, internet and coffee bar and Culinary Arts Center for cooking classes and presentations. Of course like all Holland America vessels there is ample deck area, two pools and the superb Greenhouse Spa & Salon and fitness area. There need never be a dull moment as we cruise - a host of activities are ours to enjoy, from nightly shows featuring dancers, musicians, comedians, magicians, and special guests to classes in dance, art, computer science, and daily events like card tournaments, bingo, charity walks, exercise classes, and more. Special lectures of the Explorations Series provide insights into local history, culture and lifestyles. Join the morning exercise class, walk the Promenade Deck, enjoy a sauna and massage or relax on deck with a good book and the fresh sea air. The choice is ours as is the enjoyment. Luxurious accommodations await your arrival. Each stateroom features two lower beds, which can convert to a queen-size bed, plush pillow top mattresses, fine Egyptian cotton sheets, personal terry cloth bathrobes, a private bathroom, individually controlled air conditioning, telephone, multi-channel in-room music and ample closet space.
