Wonderful ship, staff, and service

Sail Date: March 09, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This was our first time traveling on a ship this size. We loved it because everything was so much closer. We didn't hesitate go go somewhere because it was a half mile away at the other end of the ship. The library (explorations Cafe) was a great spot.

Pros: The ship itself, food is wonderful

Cons: Tender operation is terrible

Recommends Veendam? Yes!

Key West, Florida
We always love Key West -- see Hemingway House if you like cats!!
Belize City, Belize
Pretty much same ole, same ole for Western Caribbean. Gets boring -- tender operatins were ghastly
Don't Miss: The zoo tour was good
Cozumel, Mexico
Love this port -- tenders were run by Cozumenl authorities and after docking around 11:00am, we finally set foot in Cozumel at 1:30. What a waste of shopping time!!We were furious
Don't Miss: Balloon hats at Carlos and Charleys
Santo Tomas De Castilla, Guatemala
If you're not into ruins and Mayan sites, this port provides very little.
