Customer reviews for Veendam

destinations very nice, its, a long time since i have been on a cruise when there has not been a fridge in the stateroom i would say i't a must in summer.other than that everything was very good.

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.

This is the fourth Cruise we been on with Holland America and the third on the Veendam. We had a great holiday and had a wonderful time. 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.
