Helpful Votes

3 out of 5

Overrated and over priced

Sail Date: February 24, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The Lido pool could have been covered more often since they had an open pool on top of the ship. On board shops too small and not enough of them. Too much jewelry and not enough necessities. Way too expensive.

Pros: Stateroom and the Verandah

Cons: Front office staff lack of knowledge of ports and itinerary

Recommends Veendam? No.

Ship Quality
Clean, small but well organized.
Food and Dining
Food good but not excellent as we had hoped for.
Service and Staff
Our stateroom stewart was excellent. The buffet staff was lazy. Had to get our own drinks, carry our own trays. Front office had poor knowledge of the ports and itineraries.
Cabin / Stateroom
Bonaire, Netherlands Special Municipality
Margarita (Isla De Margarita), Venezuela
Waste of time
Roseau, Dominica
George Town, Grand Cayman
Bridgetown, Barbados
St. George's, Grenada
Landed on a Sunday and the town was closed, had only a few portable shops set up.
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
We were not told anything about this island and what was on it. The shops were very poorly supplied and the staff was not friendly.
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Oranjestad, Aruba
