With its broad, teak decks, plush dining rooms, and multimillion-dollar art and antique collection, MS Veendam stands for stylish vacations. Fascinating onboard workshops, a resort-style swimming pool, a luxurious spa, and exciting destinations combine to make a trip on any cruise by Holland America Line one to remember. Whether you’re taking a trip around the Caribbean, exploring Asia or Europe, or visiting North and South America, a cruise on MS Veendam won’t disappoint.
The Showroom at Sea nightclub provides a host of world-class entertainment. Spend the evening in the casino, catch a movie at the Wajan Theater, or sip a few cocktails and dance the night away. You’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to dining, with five restaurants offering everything from American classics to authentic Italian fare.
All rooms aboard MS Veendam come with fine towels and linens, premium Aromapure bath products, and luxuriously comfortable mattresses. Stay entertained with a flat panel-TV and DVD player, and enjoy complimentary fruit on request. While most staterooms contain two single beds that convert to a queen-size, the opulent Pinnacle Suite boasts a large king-size double plus a sofa bed for two. Opt for an interior or ocean view stateroom (141–255 square feet), or treat yourself to a Lanai stateroom (181–256 square feet) for a private veranda.
Dining & Gastronomy
Led by a team of five world-class celebrity chefs, the Culinary Council works hard to guide your online dining experience. Enjoy their stylish dishes in the main dining room, or head to one of the ship's other restaurants. Taste traditional fare at the Pinnacle Grill, try Sal de Mer’s seafood, or sample Asian cuisine at Tamarind. You’ll find authentic Italian fare at Canaletto, and modern fusion at the Culinary Arts Center. There's also a host of cafés and fast food joints to choose from, so you definitely won’t be going hungry!
Entertainment and Activities
Providing entertainment for kids aged three to 17, Club HAL is fully supervised, leaving you the chance to unwind. Sip a cold drink by the pool, take a yoga or Pilates class, treat yourself to a spa treatment, or simply relax in the comfort of your private stateroom. The online digital workshop will teach you how to work with your vacation photos and videos, and you can learn fool-proof recipes with America’s Test Kitchen. If you like to stay active, head to the tennis or basketball courts or fitness center.
Most days, dress should be smart casual, but on Gala Nights, you're encouraged to dress to impress, with slacks and collared shirts for men, and slacks, skirts, or dresses for women.
