Veendam Cruise Review
This was my first cruise on December 22-29, 2000, and what a way to spend it! I am totally spoiled now for any other cruises I decide to go on. Embarkation went extremely smoothly, and we were greeted by the friendly, smiling faces of the staff. We were immediately escorted to our staterooms, where I was a little bit shocked by its small size, but I didn't really know what to expect anyways. I found my way around the ship very easily, and if I was ever lost, there were tons of staff members around, waiting to help with anything. The room stewards were amazing, and were always ready to help with the slightest problem. Our waiter and assitant waiter at the second seating waited on us as if we were the only other passengers on the ship. The passengers were generally friendly, the only problem I found was that there were not so many teenagers, and being almost 16, I like to socialize. The overall experience on this ship was amazing, and I can't wait for my second cruise in December, which could only beat this past cruise!
