myself and my wife 38 and 40 and ma inlaw will be sailing on ms veedam on 14th dec 08 for 7 days to western carribean looking forward to it but wondering if we will have enough to do on board ship
being reading mixed reveiws on different sites
some say its a lot older persons kind of ship no disrespect ment there tho
because we get on with all age groups
but can any body put us in the picture who has being on this ship please
From what I've read, your going to have a very relaxing trip. They do have a "disco" and piano bar. They do close things up early so don't expect late nights on board.
Life is too short to let the ship of your dreams sail without you.

Our first cruise was also the Western Caribbean. We sailed aboard the Zuiderdam and had plenty to do and see. At the time, we were a little older than you and I christened HAL the 'Old Geezers Line' (merely an observation and NOT a complaint). The only thing I missed on HAL as compared to other cruise lines is the lack of children, but the folks on board were always friendly and not willing to just sit around and do nothing. They were quite 'with it' and I think you'll have a lovely cruise.
We've a 15 day Hawaiian cruise on the Zaandam coming up on 12.7.08 and we're looking forward to it.
Good sailing and best wishes to you and your bride.
THANKS FOR THE REPLYS GUYS LOOKING FORWARD TO IT MAYBE WE WILL HAVE TO SIT ON THE BALCONY AND LISTEN TO THE SOUND OF THE SEA AFTER HOURS WITH A BOTTLE WINE
Now you're getting the idea you won't be bored I promise. Just being at sea is exiting. HAL ships are wonderful. They all have beautiful wide promenade decks all the way around to walk on . You'll love it
Landlocked in Denver, but cruisin every chance we get.
