Food and Dining

3 out of 5
The quality of the food was very good\, especially the Pinnacle Grill. However\, we had the 'choose your dining time' and the dinner service was slow and too lenthy. It seemed like they had cut personnel. We even saw supervisors assisting with the serving of the food and clearing the tables. It took us on 2 occasions over 2 hours which caused us to miss the shows.

The entertainment was 'just all right'\, really nothing to brag about.

Service and Staff

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
Very clean at all times.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Excellent accomodations and condition at all times.

Pros: The quality of the food\, the cleanliness of the ship and the ports of call

Cons: The lengthy dinner times\, cutting of certain niceties and the duration of certain excursions. The check in was very unorganized and lengthy. I realize they had a situation on their hands\, but they should have been better prepared and executed a better thought of Plan B.

Recommends Veendam? Yes!
