Aboard Veendam

After a wonderful train ride down to Seward, we’re happily aboard the HAL Veendam. I’ll post more later but here are a few first impressions.

Overall, the ship is nice but not fantastic. It’s public spaces look a little dated and not “elegant” in the way we might have expected.

Our cabin, however, is great! We love aft balconies, and this one doesn’t disappoint. It’s nicely appointed and brand new. Indeed, it still smells new. Love it!

Lido buffet was good. The selections were a bit limited, but the quality was high. It wasn’t self-serve… the staff handed out much of the food. Not bad… but I imagine it will slow things down on busy days / times.

I’ll post more later (probably tomorrow) including a number of pics (assuming that the Internet access is decent).

    Hi Paul,
    We’re on Veendam next month in aft cabin 226.
    Any info particular to those cabins would be great.

    I hope your voyage is fantastic!
