Average Cruise for the price

Sail Date: June 10, 2012

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The ship is old but was very updated and clean.
The AC in our room was awful - but we were provided a fan.
Well decorated interior
Small pool
Not enough lounge chairs
Basketball court is directly above Lido Room Dining which created a very loud banging noise going on whille you try to eat a meal. Why not swap the kiddie area with the basketball court?
Pinnacle grill was one of the worst meals we had on the ship and worst dining experiences and this we paid extra for. But they did refund halkf of what we paid.
$450 coupon book offered by United Cruise is about the most useless coupon book I ever saw. No drink coupons, no shore excursions coupons, no dining coupon, Really nothing that could interest the average person.

Pros: The smallness of the ship. The shows were great and the staff friendly

Cons: Very poor room AC and ventilation. Pinnacle Grill was the worst food we had and we paid extra for that. Banging of basketball above the Lido dining room during meals was really awful. Not enough lounge chairs on top side.

Recommends Veendam? Yes!

Cabin / Stateroom
Absolutely no room ventilation
Ship Quality
Get rid of the basketball court above the dining area. Figure out why the AC doe not work rather than buy fans.
Food and Dining
Food was generally great except for Pinnacle Grill which they should shut down if they were reading reviews.
Service and Staff
Staff was hard working. The cuacasian young woman staff we ran into were snotty and snooty. Need a lesson in freindliness. All others were wonderful.
Shows were great. Comedian Jones was the best.
