14 Night Southern Caribbean (Tampa Roundtrip)
Sail Date: February 24, 2008
Ship: Veendam
Cabin Type: Balcony
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago

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.

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.

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.
