Grandly proportioned and designed to carry fewer guests than other cruise ships in her class, the ms Veendam offers guests an onboard experience defined by spacious comfort. Enjoy the two-tiered Rotterdam Dining Room with its grand sweeping staircase and suites with private verandahs for private dining, relaxing and sunning. Multiple lounges provide choices for leisurely evenings. A wide teak deck affords ample room for strolling and deck chairs for those who wish to sit and watch the sea roll by.
