The ship is showing its age. It is not competitive with today's typical ship. Cleanliness in carpeted areas and of our stateroom walls should have been better.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Would have received a \"good\" if cleanliness had been better.

Pros: The captain's candid communication and commitment to make the cruise the best it could be under the conditions of a norovirus threat throughout the cruise.

Cons: Odors\, especially around the elevators. Wet chairs in formal dining room.

Recommends Veendam? No.
