Veendam Antarctica Trip - Spectacular!
Destination: South America
Embarkation: Santiago (Valparaiso)
If there was anything on the ship that was less that great it was the food. It was good, and there was certainly a lot of choice as to what to eat and where, but just a little inconsistent. A few dishes arrived very heavily salted or over cooked, but with over 50 meals on board, the vast majority was very enjoyable. I was impressed that on a 3 week cruise we were consistently served fresh fruit and vegetables as well as a wide variety of dishes. Less
Cabin review: N720 Standard Interior Stateroom
A bit tiny for three women, but lots of counter space in the bathroom and good closets made this work - even for 17 days. The look of a window in the room is a cleaver way to avoid the claustrophobia that could be caused by such a small room. It was both a good bargain and a good value.Read All Standard Interior Stateroom (N) Reviews >>
Port and Shore Excursions
We arrived on a beautiful day and took Patrick Watts' expedition out to Volunteer Point - it was AMAZING!!!
All of the major Antarctic expeditions leave from this port so there are interesting ships in the harbor and lots of outdoor gear stores. This is a very windy city, be sure to dress appropriately.
The Vacation of a Lifetime!
