Default ms Vollendam need experienced HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Cruisers !
My wife and I are 9 time cruisers. We have cruised Crystal, Princess, Celebrity, Norwegian and Royal Caribbean. We are 65 and 64 respectively. We love great food and wine, casinos, great conversation, and entertainment. You know__Typical "Party Animals"!
We are thinking about a HAL cruise Feb. 1- Feb. 16, 2007, Panama Canal, on the ms Volendam!
How do the ships, food, people, suites or staterooms, etc. compare!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't hold back! Give it to us straight.
Thanks in advance for this consideration

You'll find the "style" on HAL most resembles Princess - minus the Anytime Dining", but with larger cabins.

On a longer Panama cruise you're likely to find many folks your own age, and higher.

They offer an overall good product that you should be happy with.

Have been on 30 plus cruises and you will definitely enjoy your first cruisr on Holland In my opinion they have the best service and most friendly cabin staff along with all others who will make your cruise first class.The hot appetizers before dinner in all bars a nice touch and make sure you taste the choc candy on the way to the show ,the lounge on your right.Will be cruising on Veendam in a couple of weeks and we now have 111days on Holland on many different ships thru the years and each one has been first class.The sgnature of excellence has been a nice addition to their service with outstanding beds,fresh flowers, robes wonderful pillows and many other improvements. Do not hesitate in selecting Holland.

We've sailed the Volendam many times, in fact were on her last December on her first cruise after she came out of drydock with all the SOE amenities.

The ship is beautiful and the Explorations Cafe is so nice and bright. There are new flat screen TV's in every cabin & the beds/bedding are very comfortable.

We have over 400 days with HAL, so that is saying something for them.

Try it, you'll love it.
