Veendam delightful: Veendam Cruise Review by carsiebee
Overall Member Rating
Destination: Canada & New England
The Ship was everything and more than one would expect. Service was friendly and responsive. Cruise Director, Kelsey, was ever present, pleasant, articulate, a great sense of humor and knowledgeable. Music everywhere for anyone's taste...Shows were enjoyable...great comedian, wonderful Tenor and dancers. The fellow cruisers were friendly and outgoing.
The Meet and Mingle was successful, thanks to staff, all the cruise critic folks who attended and the great communication that took place from well traveled folks, Canadian and American. The Cruise Director, Kelsey came as well as the Hotel Director, Don. The Canadians were particularly helpful regarding the ports....some even had family ties to the Maritimes and many seasoned American cruisers had visited the area previously. Almost all who signed up, showed up....just have to make it clear the next time that 1000 is AM....not PM....
Disembarkation was effortless and moved more quickly than scheduled. The Port in Boston and immigration was simple as we processed previously when we arrived in Bar Harbor on the ship. The trip to the airport was brief and efficient as there were plenty of taxis to accommodate the crowd.
It was a wonderful cruise....one of the best....so those who have upcoming plans, I am sure you will feel likewise. The only suggestion is that the ship remain in port an hour or so longer as we really had to move quickly to see all that we wanted to see. Less
Cabin review: FF557 Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Cabin 557....next to the gangway on 2 occasions. Far from the dining room but close to the showroom. Surprisingly quiet...no rooms across as it is the back of the elevators so easy access to elevators and stairs. Rarely saw another person.Read All Large Ocean-View Stateroom (FF) Reviews >>
Good - Except for the food/Wom...
OK not great: Easy to make it ...
