Veendam Dry Dock

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know when the Veendam was last in dry dock and what was done?  Is there a site where this information is posted for HAL ships?

We were on the Veendam this summer and there were visible changes in many if the public areas.  One of the most notable changes was the new carpet through out the ship. The carpet patterns in the various areas for the most part had lighter and brighter patterns which made the ship seem brighter.  The passageways on the cabin decks looked a lot better with the new lighter blue carpet.  Additionally, we noticed new furniture in the Crow’s Nest, Ocean Bar, Library and Lido Market Place.


Unfortunately, I do not know what “behind the scenes “ work was done.  One important thing to us was, we could control the temperature in the cabin.  Maybe the a/c had some work done to it.


I hope this answers some of you ur questions.

Thank you for the report. We were last on the Veendam in May 2018 and she did need a little sprucing up.  We, however, will take her as she is as long as she maintains some of the character we have come to expect.  The combo music in the Ocean Bar isn’t found on many of the HAL ships now so we have fingers crossed the V will retain that feature for a long time to come.  Looking forward to a Dec. visit to the Veendam!
