Veendam

35 Night Voyage Of The Vikings (Boston Roundtrip)

Sail date: July 25, 2015

Ship: Veendam

Cabin type: Suite

Cabin number: 002

Traveled as: Couple

Reviewed: 5 years ago

Review summary

The cruise was a unique opportunity to see parts of the world we would not otherwise visit. The Veendam at 1400 passengers was a great size. The crew was fantastic. Food was great (only gained 5 lbs). Excursions were typical, some good, some not so good, most overpriced. Internet was "iffy" but usable. It is just too expensive for what you get and HAL needs to stop using it as a profit center.

I highly recommend the cruise.
