Veendam

July 2017 - Veendam to Canada, New England, New York

A Pleasant Affair

We had good weather, river and ocean were calm. Met some interesting people. Saw some new country. Thought food was so-so and entertainment in Showroom disappointing.

Jewel of the Seas

May 2015 - Jewel of the Seas to Coastal - West Coast

How Not to Run a Cruise

Many promises, little fulfillment. Very poor service for wheelchair services. Poorly maintained staterooms and some common areas. I've seen closets that were larger than our balcony room. Little room to move around in the room, had to store our walker in the shower.  Most staff were friendly, but were poor to followup on requests. Inadequate space for attending programs. Some of the poorest "show" entertainment we've seen on several prior cruises.  Food was spotty, some good some not so good. Ice cream dispenser was always breaking down. Served lots of pork dishes. MyTime Dining, that required additional in advance funding was a farce. We'vr had far better cruises that cost less.

rscott1519's Tips

Sydney, Nova Scotia - No excursion here, just got off the ship and found some interesting things close by
Halifax, Nova Scotia - Very interesting tour to Peggy's Cove. Port area also interesting and enjoyed it
Bar Harbor, Maine - A bummer. Had booked a tour, but after getting on board were notified that must be able to handle 13 steep stairs, then take a tender and a pier where much of it was up a steep incline to get into the town. So my wife couldn't go ashore and we had to cancel the excursion. Fortunate we did since there was a sudden change in the weather, got fogged in, and tours delayed and had difficulty getting tenders back to the ship. I went ashore,nice little town with numerous shops to attract tourists.
Montreal, Quebec - Sw little of it, just traveled from airport to ship to embark
Veendam Veendam - Be prepared to walk and/or regularly use elevators unless stairs don't present a problem.
Jewel of the Seas Jewel of the Seas - Bring lots of books and things to do. Library and game room was a farce. Most of the places for people to socialize were bars! Did have some good small size musical groups, but not nearly enough space to accomodate people wanting to listen except for balconies on several higher floors.
