Oosterdam

November 2016 - Oosterdam to Europe

Overall, great- just a few minor glitches

The crew is fantastic! Accessible cabins should have same makeup mirror as others, not a cheap plastic nonlighted one hidden in a cabinet; also a way to keep the door open when exiting on a scooter without having to use a wooden doorstop. Flat screen TV with lots of movie choices is great- hope the Zuiderdam has that for our next cruise summer 2107!

Veendam

August 2015 - Veendam to Canada, New England, New York

No comparison to the Eurodam

Let me begin by saying that I took my first Holland America cruise, solo- 21 days aboard the MS Eurodam, and the experience was outstanding in every way. This encouraged me to book another HAL cruise, with my husband- a 7 day Canada/New England cruise aboard the MS Veendam. The two experiences could not have been more of a contrast. I was embarrassed on a daily basis that I had told him how wonderful a cruise with HAL would be, and actually apologized to him multiple times each day, because so many things went wrong on the cruise on the Veendam. The crew in general (but mainly Front Office and wait staff) were incompetent, untrained and inexperienced. It seemed to us, and many fellow passengers, that the Veendam was a sort of “training ship”.

kathys71201's Tips

Oosterdam Oosterdam - Spa specials for multiple treatments ( ex., massage and nails) makes cost a little more affordable.
Cozumel, Mexico - Dolphin Encounter was a good deal- all-inclusive- food and drinks- all you wanted!
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico - Kohulich ruins not fun- 2 hrs to get there, 2hrs there and 2 hrs to get back! Steep hill to get to main attraction.
Veendam Veendam - Don’t book a cruise on this type of ship. I think the newer, Vista class ships have more experienced crew.
