SF 56, non smoker, independent cruiser-looking to save singles penalty. This is a great cruise that saves airfare for those of us from the northeast. Ports are ST. Georges and Hamilton which are much better than Kings Wharf. Manhattan is stunning to sail out of in the evening, past the statue of liberty and Ellis Island with the manhattan skyline. Inside cabin is $899 for teachers and other discount groups. Veendam is my favorite ship. It is the old traditional style with a fully functional teak promenade deck with deck chairs but also with a many public areas redone recently. I am looking at July 17 and 24 dates.
