BB111-we loved the storage, the extra space. Loved the fridge in the room. Get rid of the fountain. HVAC needs some work. Quiet location. Not too far from the laundry, elevators/stairs or the fitness center/spa. We wanted to be on the port side going around the Horn but truly it did not matter that much. As the straits had land on each side and during the most scenic times during the cruise we were in the restaurant or the Crows Nest. Our room was at a "dead end" so there was no traffic noise at all. Though our neighbors did get in a big fight one night, we were so tired and they calmed down pretty fast, we didn't lose any sleep. It was nice to have daylight in the room. For us it was a very special trip so we spent the extra money, but really the extra space was more important. Book early! Read entire member review.
Veendam staterooms are need of updating but this ship is undergoing a major renovation at the end of March. The bathroom has a tub which is not seen to frequently now a days. In putting our bags under the bed we realized that they would only go under one side so the size of the cabin is adequate but not made for more then two adults. Closets were fine but we did not like the fact that the safe required to be operated by using a credit card and since my wife and I use different cards this could cause a problem if she or I needed to use the safe and one of us were not there at the time. All is all the Veendam despite it age was fantastic and ranks up there with the luxury lines a 5 out of 5 Read entire member review.
