Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

A great ship - excellent service and food.
Poor choisce of ports and medicre entertainment.

Pros: Ambiance of the ship and the Food

Cons: The Rosario Trio

Recommends Veendam? Yes!

Culinary instruction was great. The comedian was very good -
The variety show was ok but not up to the level of other hal
ship. The trio was horrible - the pianist subpar while the
singer/pianistb was just ok.
Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Better than Oosterdam or Zuiderdam.
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
Costa Maya (Mahahual), Mexico
Cozumel would have been much better. Costa Maya was a shipping center in the middle of nowhere.
Don't Miss: getting back to the ship
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
While the scenery was beautiful, there was not much to offer. The resort was a bizarre combination of Disney and natives.
Don't Miss: the scenery
Key West, Florida
Key West was a waste of time - an American tourist trap. The tour was contrived and over priced.
Don't Miss: getting back to the ship as quickly as possible
Belize City, Belize
The Mayan ruins were interesting. The population was nice.
Don't Miss: the Mayan ruins
