We were delighted with the size of the cabin, especially with the tub in the shower. The cruise staff were friendly and tended to our needs. The food was delicious with different themes every day. I liked the idea of the staff serving the food in the buffet, which eliminated the chances of any germs spreading. They had an afternoon tea as well. It was a great cruise overall.
The food on Veendam was excellent. The entertainment was excellent also. I prefer comedy and laughs, which they provided most nights. After numerous cruises, the Broadway shows or singers/dancers get to be routine. I read many reviews about the ship before boarding and was prepared for a very, relaxed and quiet ship which it was. I have way too much energy for this ship, but was very pleased to be docked in Hamilton on Front Street. I would recommend this ship for anyone looking for quiet evenings and no crowds. There was plenty of room for everyone and never any lines and always a place to sit by the buffet.
Very enjoyable relaxing cruise. The food was good the service was excellent and everyone was so nice. I will definitely go on Holland America again. I loved leaving out of Boston.
We were looking for a very restful cruise and after having sailed on a similar Holland America ship before we knew we would get that. It was everything we expected. Usual sea days back and forth. And Bermuda was as quiet and nice as we remembered it. A couple real good entertainers. Really enjoyed the spa with the ceramic tile heated chaise lounges. Spent a lot of time in there. Only thing I would like to see on this ship is a more upgraded casino. This was a last minute cruise and it was great.
Having nearly four days right in the heart of Bermuda is a plus, allowing for easy access via public transportation to all parts of the island including the best beaches.
