Spectacular Service!

Sail Date: May 09, 2008

Reviewed: 9 years ago

Traveled As: Family (young children)

Room Type: Inside

The ship is immaculately clean, and well maintained. The decor is a bit gold and glitter for my taste, but I have pretty simple tastes. Even though corridors and floors are well marked, it is still easy to get turned around when trying to find your way from one part of the ship to another.

Pros: The Crew and Staff really did a wonderful job

Cons: Because of bad weather, the captain had to cancel one of our port calls

Recommends Veendam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Food and Dining
Fabulous and abundant food! Very well-prepared.
Cabin / Stateroom
Even though we had an inside stateroom with no porthole, the room felt spacious and efficient, and, of course, immaculately clean
Service and Staff
We travelled with our 21 month old son, and the crew were fabulous. They always paid him special attention, made origami animals for him, and made him laugh. The front desk staff was excellent in helping us make changes in our travel arrangements when our existing flight arrangements needed to be adjusted.
Lots of variety. I especially enjoyed the cooking demonstrations that they have in the culinary center.
Juneau, Alaska
