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, Puppylips. Glad to have you.

The Veendam is a fine ship and I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time.

You should hook up with Kakalina. She posts here too. I think she's going to be on that same cruise.

I will be on the Veendam too ... but I am not getting on until April 1 ... the day you folks get off.

I've heard nothing but good things about the Veendam, and I am really looking forward to sailing her.

Blue skies and welcome to CruiseMates!

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 )

Okay, I'll bite ... cause I've been wondering that exact same thing.

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.
