    We are four star HAL passengers with over 25 cruises. This is one of the most interesting.

    8/2018 New England/Canada
    Full Review
    We enjoyed our trip to New Englang/Canada. Just got back from a wonderful week. Service, food were good. Rooms were a little small. Wife needed to travel with a walker and there was no room to use it in the room. Couldn't even get it beyond the bed and had to be carried past the foot of the bed to store it. This was our second time to enjoy this area. First time was on the Rotterdam and it was much nicer!
    Pros Crows Nest, is the living room of the ship,in my opinion! Just love to go there and relax!
    Cons The Piano Bob, piano player was not entertaining!

    We saw four shows. The Beatles tribute was fantastic. The one that we thought was going to be step dancers turned out to be a lecture on the Citadel and was very boring. Why that was scheduled on the showtime is a puzzle. The theater seating was less than optimal. It wasn't tiered adequately, so if we sat in the back, we had to strain sometimes to see clearly. I think the Veendam is a bit older ship than we've been on in the past, but we'd never seen a showroom laid out quite like that. I would advise the Titanic/Peggy's Cove excursion to be an hour longer, at least the one we went on. The guide was excellent and a wealth of information. Unfortunately, he had to talk so fast in the amount of time we had that a lot of it was lost on us. We had to wait at the cemetery because there was another group ahead of us, so we got maybe 10 min. there and had to rush back to the bus to go to Peggy's Cove. Peggy's Cove is a quaint and beautiful place, but so many tourists and not a lot of time to look at everything or buy much because of the long lines. As I said, it's an excellent tour -- just not enough time. The Price Edward Island Anne of Green Gables excursion was great, and Donalda, our tour guide, was the best ever (and the driver as well)!

    Ms Veendam Cruise Review

    2/2018 Costa Maya, Belize, Cozumel, Havanna
    Full Review
    I would not recommend this ship. Due to the age, the ship was not stable as the newer ships. There was no entertainment to speak of or activities. The little entertainment that they did have was very poor. The only plus that they had going for them was the staff. They were very pleasant. We have traveled on many cruise ships and have had quality entertainment and activities. If this is the normal for Holland America they we have no desire to travel on any of their ships again. Our travel agent did an amazing job with the itinerary but the overall experience on the ship was poor.
    Pros Staff was great as well as our balcony room.

    The service on the Veendem was excellent from all the dining areas, stateroom maintenance and front desk services.

The cruise was a totally enjoyable experience. Service and a pleasant atmosphere is high priority on the ship.
