With two-tiered show lounges and dining rooms, deluxe staterooms and suites with spacious verandahs--and more staff members per guest than on any other major cruise line, the Veendam is sure to please. Art and antiques displayed throughout the ship-over a million dollars' worth-provide a sense of luxurious warmth. Escape depends on leaving a world of routine, regimen and restrictions behind and entering a carefree, graceful world where everything seems to exist for you alone. Such is the world of Holland America, recognized time and again as the "best premium cruise line in the world"-and for 18 years running, "best overall cruise value.

First Cruise! Some expectations not met, and some exceeded. by katewilli

This was our first cruise, and some things exceeded expectations, while others were a miss. I was worried the ship would be feel crowded, but it wasn't. There was plenty of space to escape, whether walking around the decks or sitting in the various lounge spaces. We actually enjoyed relaxing in our cabin! What missed expectations was the lack of any local cultures or food....that's the best part of travel. The cruise was just an extension of the USA on water. That said, once we relaxed into the pace, the cruise was very enjoyable for what it was.

Cuba Complete! by hiltbilly

Overall a good time was had by the seven of us traveling. I still like Holland best among the cruise lines although Carnival is a close second, with them buying out Holland perhaps it will get even better.

HAL is no longer a luxury cruise - it has gone from a first class to a third class cruise

We traveled with another couple. Enjoyed the Veendam and the ports. Our weather was not good, but we enjoyed the entertainment, etc on board. Loved the Cruise Director Becca Newton. Enjoyed Team Trivia. Enjoyed the Lido Market for most meals. Breakfast in the Rotterdam Dining Room was especially nice.

Fall colors by chromepate

Verified Review
/ Sail Date: / Traveled As: Couple

I don't think I would ever do this cruise again. It is just too hit and miss as far as seeing the fall foliage, and the weather can be suspect. We were not able to visit Prince Edward Island due to weather, which was the one stop we were really looking forward to.

Order room service, they steak sandwich was better than the filet they serve in the dining room as is their breakfast

Order breakfast in your room or go to the main dining room – anything is better than being jostled in the eggs benedict line at the Lido.

Don't miss the formal nights, there are always great choices for food those nights.
