The Only Ship I'll Ever Sail to Bermuda

The selection of the cruise ship is critical because there are many different kinds. If you prefer old school elegance with a minimum of screaming rug rats, Holland America is the absolute best. If you cruise to Bermuda and if you really love Bermuda, the Veendam is the best for two important reasons. Number 1 is that Holland America offers the maximum amount of Bermuda time. The other cruise ...

The embarkation was efficient and speedy and we were in our cabin within 30 minutes. However the lunch on the Lido deck was truly sub-par. Roast Beef that so tough that it could not be cut and dinner that evening was not much better. Overall the food was way bellow the standards that we have come to expect from Holland America The ship was over crowded and from what I was told had at 100 ...

GREAT TIME IN BERMUDA ON THE VEENDAM

This was a really nice cruise. Embarkation was the fastest I've ever experienced. We got dropped off at the NYC Cruise Terminal at 11:30 am and we were on the ship by Noon, and our cabin was ready when we got on! That was amazing! The ship is a little older and smaller than other ships we've gone on, but it is beautiful, well maintained, easy to navigate, and wonderfully appointed. We loved ...

This is my 3rd cruise trip and the experience with Hollad America is the least satisfactory among all. We went with my parents and they are both over seventy years old. Given their very pleasant experiences with Noreigean cruise they had high hopes coming in. But as soon as I entered the cruise terminal I sensed the differences. Cruise staff are not as enthusiastic and slow in responses. The ...

We chose this cruise for two main reasons: good friends had already booked and the cruise was leaving from our home city of NYC. So no airplanes and extra hotel nights. While we had been to Bermuda several times, we had not gone their via ship. Things began well. Check in was smooth and our verandah stateroom (with a sitting area) was ready early. The first negative thing we notices was the ...

Family included wife and 3 daughters. We chose this cruise because it left from NYC and stayed 3 days in Bermuda instead of hopping from place to place like the first cruise we took on Carnival. Highlights of the week include: - Staff, especially room stewards were extremely helpful and always pleasant. - Rooms were kept immaculate. - Food was phenomenal. Especially the Pinnacle. - Wait ...

My family of four (kids aged 9 and 7) splurged on a deluxe verandah suite on the final Veendam voyage to Bermuda. The suite is fantastic, with plenty of room and a huge balcony. The perks are great as well - having a concierge handle your reservations and answer your questions was great, we ordered hor dourves three days for the four of us which we enjoyed before dinner and enjoyed breakfast in ...

BERMUDA ON THE VEENDAM

Just returned from a seven day Bermuda cruise. It was wonderful. The ship, while not new was in good shape and the staff was top notch. Many passengers were disappointed that HAL is not returning to Hamilton Bermuda Again. They said that they took this cruise annually. No doubt docking in Hamilton is much preferable to Dockyard. The whole experience was one of enjoyment, relaxation and pampering. ...

Just returned from another Bermuda cruise on HAL, Aug 5-12. The last time we went to Bermuda was in 2010 on the Veendam, in a lanai stateroom, and spent the extra dollars this year to again reserve a lanai stateroom. LOVED it again. We traveled from Boston to NYC on the Fung Wah bus lines ($30 pp for round trip!!) and then a $20 taxi ride to the port at Manhattan. Got rid of our baggage at ...

The previous reviews pretty much described the over-all conditions of the ship. Yes, it is 16 years old but fairly well maintained. After a nervous experience leaving Ft. Laud. on the morning of the cruise-the original plane returned to the gate with a serious mechanical problem-we were able to board another and arrive at Laguardia about 2 hours later than scheduled. Taxi to the pier was ...
