Veendam Overview

MS Veendam divides her time between the Caribbean and Europe/Mediterranean Sea. From October to April see all parts of the Caribbean out of Fort Lauderdale or Tampa. Note that because of sailing from the USA, Cuba is presently off the itineraries. The cruises are 7, 14 and 21 nights made up by joining consecutive cruises. From May to September 2020 MS Veendam sails from Amsterdam and Venice. The itineraries include many ports not visited by other ships, and a number of cruises reach the far north Arctic. When in the Mediterranean, consider calling at Istanbul and ports for Israel. In October 2020 cross the Atlantic to the Caribbean. MS Veendam is an adventurer, the smallest of the HAL ships, and many guests are repeat passengers.


Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view with panoramic windows; Lanai, that open directly to a promenade deck but with mirrored glass doors for privacy; Spa, located near the Greenhouse Spa and Salon; and three levels of suites. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding and bath amenities, fresh fruit on request, and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Triple and quad cabins are available, as well as interconnecting cabins for up to six guests. Many staterooms are modified accessible and wheelchair accessible. There are no single cabins.

Food and Dining

The ship has six formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The Master Chefs’ three-course menus are excellent, and waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests can be ordered pre-cruise. One night in seven is a formal night, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Showroom at Sea or a musical recital. There are two alternative restaurants, best to reserve in advance: The Pinnacle Grill (pay extra) for steaks and seafood (and occasionally a special Pinnacle – Le Cirque), and the Italian-American-influenced Canaletto. Ask about beverage packages.


At night the Show Lounge presents Las Vegas-style revues, dancers, illusionists, comedians and variety acts. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. View recent movies (with popcorn) in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a sea day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.
