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.

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.

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.

overall good to fair; great staff by GailandJohn

Even though my comments as I reread them are pretty negative it was a good cruise. We gambled every night (and lost every night:-) but the dealers and pit bosses and the manager, Corina were all very pleasant- It is a small casino but if there was not a table open (blackjack) they would open one for us. Minimum smoking in the casino - by certain slot machines only. Food in the Pinnacle was cold at breaKfast but, again staff very pleasant. Dinner in the Pinnacle (filet) was very good. Our room stewards, Romy and Agung were EXCELLENT and our suite was kept immaculate. Our concierge, Mary, was very helpful in many ways (We never know how much to tip) And, Fatima, who we did not see that often was also very nice. Our waiters at night Jimmy and Moises were also very good even though they had too many people to care for. And even though we don't drink we met Micky, the wine steward, who would come over and talk to us each night. Again, a very pleasant staff with the one exception that I mentioned - Albert, the Executive Housekeeper)

Make sure you have a few good books and a deck of cards. The library is well stocked with both if you leave yours at home. There is very little organized activities.
