Wonderful way to travel from Montreal to Boston !

Sail Date: August 13, 2016

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

The sheer enjoyment of being on the Veendam, coupled with the stops in Canada was just wonderful! We completely enjoyed the ease, the comfort, and the luxury of our seven days.

Cabin / Stateroom The cabin was small but adequate. On the last cruise we had a Vista Suite which was so superb that we were somewhat spoiled! However, in spite of the lack of a balcony, we enjoyed the cabin. The television reception was awful...very limited number of channels and uneven reception.
Ship Quality
Destinations and Excursions
the only excursion that I took was one that was offered in Prince Edward Island. The tour was fine. It I think that , in general, the excursions offered by Holland America are over-priced.
Onboard Activities
Service and Staff
Food and Dining


Enjoy the comfort and ease of sailing; choose activities and entertainment offerings and enjoy them! On the cruise between Canada and Boston, take advantage of the stops and leave the ship to see some of each port.
