The beautiful garden theme of the MS Volendam is reflected in an artful floral motif throughout the ship's spacious public rooms and elegant staterooms. In addition to fresh flowers throughout the ship, a collection of incredible artwork enhances the interior – from pre-Columbian fetishes and sculptures to Renaissance-era fountains imported from Italy. While on board, guests can explore the wonders of nature in BBC Earth Experiences, join a cooking show, or relax with a spa treatment at the Greenhouse Salon & Spa.
