MS Volendam

Holland America's 'Volendam' is an attractive and graceful mid-size ship. In its three-level atrium, a dramatic sculpture of red lacquered metal and blue-green glass constantly changes appearance as fibre optic light reflects it. The Sports Deck features a jogging track, a practice tennis court, a basketball court and is a great place to walk while taking in fantastic views of the sea. Entertainment is provided in the Casino, the bright and modern Crow's Nest Nightclub, the two-level Frans Hals Show Lounge, and the Wajang Theatre for movies. Every stateroom is bathed in an attractive colour scheme and offers a generous amount of personal space.
