A great cruise
Veendam Cruise Review to South America
Cabin Type: Inside
Traveled As: Couple

The cruise exceeded all of our expectations. We particularly liked having a day or two at sea between ports so you could rest up. The staff was so friendly and helpful. The cleaniness of the ship, the service and food nothing was lacking.
We did take a tour in Puerto Monte which was to the rain forest and we were very disappointed. On the brochure it showed (2 people) indicating a moderate amount of walking and it stated 1,000 feet to walk to an area. We questioned the distance of walking and we were told it was 100 feet and the 1,000 feet must be a misprint. This was totally incorrect as it was in fact a complete walking tour over uneven surfaces and several inclines and would have been impossible for me to nagivate. In addition to this the rain forest was lacking and very disapointing. My husband took the walking tour and I stayed on the bus as my mobility is limited.
