Grandly proportioned and designed to carry fewer passengers than other ships in her class, Veendam is among the most spacious ships at sea.

Among her many delights: a soaring atrium lobby around which are clustered all the essential services: the front office, shore excursion office, photo gallery, boutiques, internet centre, the lively Ocean Bar. Enjoy the two-tiered Rotterdam Dining Room with grand sweeping staircase, and suites with their own private verandas, offering an airy, outdoor room for relaxing, dining, and private viewing. All so you have an extra measure of space.

Veendam is also a perfect choice for family adventure, with Club HAL, The Loft and The Oasis clubs all being available for toddlers to teens.
