What a wonderful trip, despite the rain

Sail Date: September 05, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

really enjoyed being on a ship that was not tremendous. The room was nice, the service was excellent, the staff really knew us. We had fresh fruit in our room daily. Our cabin steward knew are names & addressed us as Mr. & Mrs. The breakfast buffet was plentiful, but if wanted to sleep in, you have to wait until 11:30 for lunch, by 10:30 it was shut down. Dinners were excellent. You must make a reservation if you don't have assigned seating. The shows were okay, but the comedian was great! Best ship show I have seen in a long time. The casino was a little small, but good enough. I enjoyed it. My husband loved the texas hold 'em tournaments & cash games.
The weather was not the best, but the retractable roof over the pool allowed for you to enjoy the water even in the rain. I loved the afternoon tea. And the spa was reasonable, offered great deals when in port and the service was wonderful. The staff was very professional. I liked the library/game room as well. You really had a lot of options while on board.

Pros: Great food and reasonable

Cons: Lunch buffet closed too early

Recommends Veendam? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
room was average size, bed was nice and the tub in the bathroom was a plus.
Service and Staff
Always went above & beyond. Addressed us by name and was very accomodating
Show quality was average, but the comedian was the best I have seen. Often activies conflicited. So it was eat dinner or happy hour, dinner or kareoke. It was hard sometimes to do everything you wanted - especially if you had the later dinner
Ship Quality
the only thing that needs improvement woulde be retreat. some of the tiles were missing. Otherwise the public rest rooms were always neat & clearn.
Food and Dining
Excellent food. Breafast and dinner was always good. Dessert was also good.
St. George's, Bermuda
Not much to see. We did some exploring on our own. We ate lunch out, which was delish, but service was slow. The only bad thing was waiting 2 hours for the tender ferry.
Hamilton, Bermuda
The beach was beautiful. We spent a lot of time at horseshoe bay. The waves were very rough.
