Ship Facts: Veendam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Veendam Deck Plans
if you are handicapped read below.great crew.great service
i would not recommend this cruise because most of the ports are not exciting.buenos aires is great,montevedeo is great,the glacier scenic cruising is nice if you have never been to alaska.cape horn we had calm water,a very pleasant surprise.we cruised in december and thought its summer,but be aware that for most of the cruise the weather was very cold,windy,rainy except for the last three days.the ship also cancelled a beautiful port so 5 days at sea.if you like that sort of cruising.

the ports are not handicapped friendly.i traveled with a travel scooter.sidewalks are broken,ramps are steep and narrow and non existing in some places and there is always the danger of crime.stores are not accesible by wheelchair or scooter due to steps.

i must give kudos to the crew from the servers to the customer relations,they are fabulous.free room service is a bonus which i used frequently.

the handicapped room is very spacious and acessible.we fitted 2 scooters in the room with room to spare.

keep in mind that the ramps most of the times are steps or steep or unstable.so if you are unstable in walking very scary but the crew will hold you up.

the food is good.many choices.the deserts are delicious.

the ship is clean and all systems worked.

the casino staff is great.have fun.

i met wonderful people and had a nice time on the ship.getting on and off was a challenge.

my next cruise,however,will be on a newer ship with better ramps and stabilizers.
