Description

Very few ships know how to unite the past and the future like the Veendam. Recently renovated, the Holland America Line ship is noticeably better with modernizations and new installations. Elegant spaces, with precious collections of art and antiques create a backdrop to onboard activities that are decidedly more modern. Guests can, for example, learn how to edit video footage during a Windows endorsed Digital Workshop.
The onboard cuisine plays an important role from the specialty restaurants, to the tasting corners, to the American cooking shows. You will find comfort, elegance, and a classic style on board the Veendam but always with an eye toward the current and avant-garde.

Nave vecchio stile ma rilassante

I liked

Servizio e cura dei dettagli

I didn't like

Poche attività e poche scelte di ristorazione

commento

Attratti dall'itinerario, poiché già negli Usa per vacanza, facciamo un approfondimento verso le Bermuda, per la prima volta con Hal. La nave come struttura risente della sua età ma offre veramente dei servizi eccellenti. Qualità in tutto, dall'attenzione al cliente alla ristorazione (anche se con poche alternative) agli intrattenimenti. Ottimo anche questo itinerario con overnight. Torneremo su questa compagnia sicuramente.
