Relaxing at its best! by mscookie2222

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Caribbean - Western

It was a great ship with a wonderful Captain Zoll who interacted with passengers in Ask the captain ang games shows. The staff tries very hard to please and make you feel welcomed. Many places to relax and escape from life for a while. Loved the elegance of this ship , cozy nightclub with a great seat wherever you sit.

Fair by d2smith47

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Fair experience. Somewhat boring on the ship. Do not book excursions on the boat. Better and cheaper to book individually or after you you get off boat at stops. Casino is very small

Sun, Sand and Sea by richardnorris16

Outside of not being able to stop at Half Moon Cay, due to mechanical issues to one of the generators, it was an excellent trip.

Disappointing Cruise by flscorpio71

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

Very disappointed in the cruise itself due to the lack of activities for someone that is middle-aged and younger. Even my 74 year old mother was bored. Holland security broke an item I purchased in Puerto Rico, after asking them to be careful with it. There goes over $100. I seriously doubt I would ever book another Holland trip. I have been on four cruises and this is the only one that has been disappointing and a waste of my money.

Loved the small ship. Veendam is older but well kept. As always on Holland America the service and staff are excellent. Our Suite was always clean and well stocked. Food was great along with the presentation and servers. Shows were great. by silver1234

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Caribbean - Eastern

We decided the smaller ships are easier for us. Holland America does meet our needs. Love the attitude of the crew members. The drink package is a good deal.

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends

If you want a relaxing and classic cruise experience, without all the frantic action of a mega ship, this is the cruise for you. Love Holland and it's classic ships.

Perfect New England/Canada Fall Foliage Cruise by vera5320

Sail date: / Traveled as: Singles/Friends
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Since I love cruising in general, it’s hard to say anything without praising everything. We picked the perfect week for visiting New England and Nova Scotia as far as weather and fall foliage, making the trip very enjoyable.

Entertaining fall foliage outing by bettycbauza

Sail date: / Traveled as: Couple
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Canada, New England, New York

Was disappointed that the fall foliage was so minimal, but of course that is not the ships fault. Overall I thought the quality of the in room dining and choice options has gone down significantly. The dining room itself was fine. Overall decent entertainment and liked timing of yoga classes.

Good family experience by Exploringfamily

Sail date: / Traveled as: Family (older children)
Ship: Veendam / Destination: Europe - Mediterranean

It was long enough to relax and enjoy. There were enough ports we had to pace our activities to avoid being overwhelmed and that worked out. Fantastic staff and felt welcomed by all from ave 4 to 70.
