Welcome Puppylips: Pull up a deck chair and visit awhile. I am going on the 14 day on the Veendam 3-18. Is that the same one for you? We are also going on the cruise prior so we will be onboard to welcome you if that is the correct cruise.
The last time we cruised Veendam was January 2005 and loved every minute aboard. We love all the "S" Class ships.
We did the 14 day Itinerary you are doing on Veendam on Ryndam (a sister ship to Veendam) this past April. The ship and itinerary were so wonderful and we enjoyed it so much, we are repeating that cruise on Veendam in November.
It's a great cruise IMO
I, like Sandy Shores, will be eager to hear your opinion when you return.
(We are on the same sailing as she is )
Yes, I will be on the 3/18 sailing with my husband. Having cruised HAL several times before we are quite looking forward to this cruise, however we haqve never sailed the Veendam. I cannot wait, and itis getting close!
New to this board and am very excited to be cruising on a 14 Day HAL cruise in a few weeks on the Veendam. Hope to hear good things about it here.
Welcome to the Boards and to HAL. We had a wonderful 34 day cruise on the Veendam last September/October. We couldn't fault the ship, crew, food etc. The Captain was very personable and his Chief Officer Bart is very nice. The ship is in tip top condition. I am sure you will have a wonderful cruise.
Until we sail on the Tahitan Princess - Tahiti to Hawaii
Until we sail on the Nautica - HongKong to Athens
