  1. We've cruised on Celebrity and Princess...never on Holland America. We have a choice of Princess or the Veendam on very similar cruises at very similar prices and we thought we'd give Holland America a try. Then we read the reviews 😞 Clearly there were major problems on a cuba cruise last year that soured many on the Veendam, but there were also many others talking about non working A/C, unclean public facilities and the rest. It's hard to feret out the real truth in reviews....some rave about a ship, some hate everything. I think the Veendam went to drydock in April (this year??)....which may have helped renew this older ship. I'm looking for some input on the real current state of the Veendam....and to some extent a comparison with Princess (balcony princess to standard suite on Holland America) but both with standard dining and equivalent perks.
  2. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING - Updated May 19th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  4. Same when we were on Veendam last year.
  5. ditto to what kwb101 said. it's a separate card. don't lose it, either. they will charge you $75 (last known amount) if you don't return it the day before disembarkation. I had a lanai last summer on the veendam and most of the time i left my slider open just a tiny crack - you couldn't tell it was open if you were walking by or even standing nearby, and then I didn't have to worry about having the special card to open it. the doors slide, but they are heavy so you really have to pull firmly to move it.
  6. We are long-time Princess and Carnival cruisers. We took our first HAL cruise on the Veendam last November to Cuba. We enjoyed it and have booked the Maasdam Sea of Cortez cruise for next April. We thought the food was fine . . . on par with Princess. Our cabin was a Vista Suite and thought it was larger than a Princess Mini-Suite - the balcony definitely was deeper. We definitely enjoyed the smaller ship.
  7. The Rotterdam in March had a lovely four piece combo in Oceans. Viewing an empty dance floor they would play jazz. If you pestered them they would play Foxtrots, Rumbas, Waltz, and Tango (i.e. Ballroom), or if you asked Latin also. We had fun with Bachata and Salsa. In our recent experience the number of ballroom dancers aboard HAL, NCL and RCCL ships has been correctly estimated as few. This may be/is cart and horse- if you assume no dancing music /venues - dancers stay home or sail elsewhere. Presented with a lot of dancers, most cruise ship bands know dance music. A Music Director on NCL told me they study early each voyage and see if they need to move bands and or play lists around If you are fussy about tempo- Cunard. In the Queens Room on QM2 they usually use a metronome. If you are super concerned about tempo- "strict tempo" - recorded -is played on Cunard in the afternoons. We actually had an epic time dancing on HAL- the smallish floor was uncrowded. On QM2 + QV three times recently the floor was so full you could hardly move. The hard core dancers went to the recorded afternoon sessions. But be careful- some HAL + other ships as has been correctly pointed out don't have the bands or dance floors left any more. We carefully read posted daily programs to see if there is even hope. Safe bets: RCCL- Boleros (Latin), Cunard (dedicated ballroom + orchestra), a few of the HAL ships (Rotterdam + Veendam), a new NCL ship or two (some bigger MDRs have a dance floor still).
  8. Miss G I would really appreciate it if you could tell me if they still have Mondavi Spellbound Cabernet Sauvignon on the Ship. Had it on the Veendam and really enjoyed it. Got my cabin assignment withing hours of paying for cruise. It was forward on Deck 2 so I asked the HAL PCC if he could find something on the lower promenade deck and he did. What they originally assigned was 1 category higher than what I changed to but I wanted to be on the Promenade deck so I could pretend I had a balcony lol.
  9. I've sailed the Veendam twice over the past year or so. Loved both of my cruises on her. The crew is fabulous and the ship was very clean both times. Food is really subjective, but I enjoyed everything I ate. I really enjoyed sitting in the Explorations Cafe/Library with a specialty coffee and watching the sea go by. Also, the Veendam has a nice wrap around promenade deck. Great for those morning walks. The complaints I heard mostly centered around a couple of elevators in the rear bank that were not working. I understand that has been fixed in the dry dock. The ship doesn't have all the entertainment options of the newer, larger ships and the cabins still have the old type non-interactive tv's. At least on the Veendam, you will still have a place to sit in your cabin, lol. This thread has some information and pictures posted from someone who was onboard after the recent dry dock. It looks like some of the public areas were updated.

  11. The Veendam is a good ship. Which Princess ship are you considering? The Veendam is a medium size class ship as compared to the Princess ship most likely. I would personally choose the HAL ship over any Princess ship.
  12. Veendam had it’s aft changed by HAL (a move they stopped shortly after due to complaints). Instead of having an aft/sea view pool, that was removed and now they have hot tubs. The hot tubs can mar the aft view in places. Veendam has had issues and other times none. A number of people I know have said they enjoyed the ship, but I confess this is one ship I am nervous of due to problems in the past. I As to suites on HAL - are you referring to the Vista Suite (which is basically a balcony cabin although they are larger on this ship) or to the Neptune Suites? It sounds like you are referring to the Vista (verandah). I believe you would find the HAL verandah suite larger than the Princess.
  13. There is insufficient room on the smaller ships like the Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Veendam, Volendam, Zaandam, Noordam, and Maasdam to install Billboard Onboard. That is why these ships, that have been through recent drydocks, have not been modified.
  14. If itineraries are the same, I'd probably select Princess. That said, we were on Veendam a few years ago for Panama Canal and had a great time -- and are sailing on her again next year because she has an itinerary we can't find elsewhere. She's a bit rusty, but we don't scare easily. 😊
  15. We returned from the Westerdam last week where we bought a new Holland America t shirt with the names of the 8 ships in the fleet. Yes, just 8! It seems someone picked just 8 of the ships to list and for some, probably good choices. They are: Nieuw Amsterdam Maasdam Oosterdam Prinsendam Rotterdam Veendam Westerdam Zaandam I asked the shop manager if he knew why, but he said apparently Seattle decided to make cut backs and this was the result. Collectors item or dust cloth, you decide.
  16. Veendam has been for sale for years. I would avoid it as there is a long history of mechanical problems.

  18. Yes, I used magnets on my cabin wall on Maasdam. Veendam, however, nope.
  19. HOLLAND AMERICA BOARD'S FUTURE CRUISE LISTING - Updated May 9th, 2019 We all love to hear what cruises you are booked on. I post the Bon Voyage threads 7 days before sailing so, to be included in this, you need to post your details here to allow sufficient time to be on the updated Future Cruise Listing. It’s better to post earlier than later but if it is later please post THREE weeks in advance to make sure it doesn’t get missed. We would also be interested to know if this is your first cruise, your first HAL cruise or if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary. Details needed are in the 2nd post of this thread. Please use REPLY and not QUOTE when posting to this thread. Using 'Quote' makes a very long thread and difficult for others to read. While this list is a lot of fun, please don't mistake it for a Roll Call thread. You can go to the Roll Call Section here on Cruise Critic and find your cruise to sign up there too. That's where your Meet & Greet planning, tour sharing, and other activities specific to your cruise will be happening. This week’s additions and changes are in BOLD and highlighted in aqua (sea colours).

  20. Well then maybe I learned something here. St Maarten looks pretty busy in January. I went May of last year, and we were the only ship there. May seems to be less congested.

  21. We are cruising to the Caribbean on the Veendam later this year and have booked an Oceanview cabin. Apparently there were no balcony cabins available when we booked back in January. I was wondering whether anybody has rented a fridge in this type of cabin. I gather space may be a problem. Cheers Rick
  22. Just booked one for January......for 7 days......do Canadians need to follow the rules for Americans on the ship and have organized tours that are for "cultural support the peoples of Cuba" reasons.....was looking at some tours available and get some rules from the United States Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets (OFAC) .....does anyone know if this applies to us also.....thanks...

  24. We have cruised on Anthem twice, Grandeur 3 times, a b2b on Liberty and we have a b2b on Harmony in December. There is always something that either we were unable to do on a previous trip and also there is always things we wanted to do again. We did a b2b on the HAL Veendam to Alaska ans also then did a 17 day trip to Hawaii on the Veendam. Cruising works for us.
  25. Is there anyone on board the Veendam now she is out of dry dock who can advise what work was done? I am on her for a Mediterranean cruise in June and just hoping they haven’t made and significant changes to the layout. If anyone has a photo of a daily schedule from the first post dry dock cruise that would be wonderfully helpful too.
