Just wondering whether anybody has cruised on the Veendam lately and if so, what was the overall experience like?

I was on the Veendam a year ago and thought the ship was a good fit for me.  Nearly every public venue was within a short walking distance.  The laundry service was always "same day" service.  Lido Market lines were short and MDR service was efficient.


If it was not going to Cuba, I would love to cruise on the Veendam again.  Here is a link to my photo review of the Ms Veendam:

We were on the Veendam in November and loved it! Capt. Ryan is very personable and it filters down to his managers, and then further on down to the people we as passengers usually interact with - e.g.., room stewards, waiters, front desk. We felt as though we were valued guests. We happen to really enjoy the smaller footprint because getting to anywhere is easy. We thought it was one of our best cruises -- and we aren't big beach & sun people. FWIW, we were in an inside on Lower Promenade and had no heating/cooling or water issues. We met people in Lanai cabins who really enjoyed them.


We did hear some people talking about others with heating/cooling issues that were not resolved. After thinking about it later, we aren't certain about some of the comments. Our sailing was not near fully occupied and it would have been very easy to move passengers if necessary.


Just our opinion...
