The ms Veendam is an elegant cruise ship belonging to the Holland America Line. The liner first launched in 1996 and in recent years it underwent a major refurbishment to bring it up to date. The many enhancements included adding new Lanai Staterooms. The ms Veendam carries 1,350 passengers and sails to many exotic destinations including Bermuda, the Amazon and the Atlantic Coast.

This is a cruise ship of grand proportions and it offers spacious comfort throughout. The atrium is spectacular and the décor in the public rooms stylish. On board, you will be pampered and indulged. However, you can also be educated. Learn new culinary skills or take classes in technology from dedicated Microsoft experts.

The HAL ‘As You Wish’ dining is a step away from that of traditional cruises, allowing you to choose what time to dine and with no prefixed seating. The main dining room spans two decks and is a mix of rose and gold hues, sophisticated and opulent. Among the other dining options is an authentic Italian restaurant and gourmet buffet.

Entertainment is in abundance and there is a mix of bars and lounges on board. Mix is a new and innovative venue that incorporates three distinctive settings comprising of a champagne, martini and an ales and spirits bar.

Children on a family holiday cruise will revel in the children’s clubs and having their own separate areas on board. For younger children there is the HAL games room and for older teen The Loft, their own lounge where they can intermingle with their peers.
