Home to spectacular coastal scenery and awe-inspiring architecture, Newport is considered by many a shining gem in the coastal crown of New England. Nowhere is Newport’s natural beauty more on display than on its Cliff Walk. Here, between the pounding surf of the Atlantic Ocean and sprawling lawns, sit the famed Gilded Age mansions that once were the summer playgrounds for socialite families such as the Astor’s and Vanderbilt’s.

The staff and food onboard Veendam were the best of any other cruise line we’ve sailed with. The staff were extremely friendly and most helpful, and the food was consistently excellent. On shore excursions were very expensive, so we organised our own excursions when ashore. Bar prices were also expensive, but most cruise lines are. The ship was in very good condition, and everything was very well organised.

The Veendam is getting quite old now but is still being kept in a wonderful condition. Our thanks go to Captain Steve and his dedicated crew for their hard work and great service. Also thanks to you all at Iglu for your help putting the package together for us, it all went without any hiccups at all thank, we will be back for our next holiday.
