Short Veendam Review 11/11 to 11/18


Recommended Posts

Long review to follow in the next day or so.


This was our First HAL cruise.


Ship condition: very good, clean.


Hotel staff: very good


Dinning Room Staff: very good


Dinning Room Food: respectable, yet a little bland.


Pinnical Grill staff: disgraseful.


Pinnical Grill Food: go to any Texas Road House and you will get a better steak and better service, except it will only cost $17.95


Nightlife: Must be the crew bar, it not happening anywhere else.


Fellow Passengers: Very old, very sedate.




House band; Dani and the Halcats, sorry but just awful.

Shows; fair, poorly attendended.


Basic overall Impression:


My wife and I had a wonderful vacation, but not the fantastic vacations that we had on our last 2 Celebrity Cruises. My wife and I are in our late 40's and now feel that HAL is not yet right for us, maybe be in 25 to 30 years.
