Veendam - Holland America
A sophisticated, refined experience, Veendam offers guests a cruise experience that accentuates their time on board with a grandeur rarely seen on the seas. Refurbished in 2009, the grand proportions, elegant dining venues, well-equipped amenities and multi-million-dollar art collection put ms Veendam in the upper echelons of cruise ship finesse.
Veendam greets guests with plenty of roomy, spacious ambience. Wide teak decks and spacious staterooms give those onboard plenty of range to stretch out, relax and enjoy their surroundings in comfort. Perhaps the ship’s calling card, the ship’s multitude of alcoves, recesses and secluded spots makes quiet moments easy. Many of its cabins come replete with verandahs, while even its interior staterooms offer a generous degree of personal space.
For premium volume, its Neptune and Pinnacle suites create a space so vast it’s akin to a second home. Guests of these rooms are also afforded access to the Neptune Lounge, an exclusive amenity that lets patrons get to know others, relax with a book and use the services of an attentive concierge.
Peerless Art and Antique Collections
Undoubtedly an highlight of its opulent design, Veendam houses a £1.5million art and antique collection that comprises a range of paintings, marble busts, armour and antique Delft pottery that’s both elegant and enriching. A perfect little retreat, this peaceful hideaway offers guests an intriguing insight into history and culture in a leisurely, unhurried environment.
After a day of relaxation and discovery, Veendam lowers its lights to make way for a selection of entertainment that runs long into the night. Awash with world-class and exclusive options, why not venture into the Showroom at Sea, where a variety of intimate theatre experiences await? With Broadway performers on hand to delight, a show here is sure to create unforgettable memories.
Enjoy a drink while serenaded by live string music at Ocean Bar, or sip on a variety of Champagne, martinis and ales at Mix, a hybrid speciality bar with a relaxed, intimate ambience. If you’re feeling lucky, play your cards right at the ship’s casino or simply unwind with a contemporary cinema classic at the Wajang Theatre.
With so many activities to choose from, there’s plenty to keep your schedule well-stocked onboard Veendam whatever your interests may be. Practise culinary skills as part of America’s Test Kitchen, a blend of live onboard cooking shows and workshops that’ll sharpen your culinary expertise with ease. An array of concerts, films and shows make up the BBC Earth Experiences, allowing guests to learn about the natural wonders of the world in a series of awe-inspiring ways.
How about retreating to the Greenhouse Spa & Salon, where you can pamper yourself with all manner of rejuvenating treatments, rituals and makeovers or if you like to keep your pulse racing, the fitness center features the latest cardio and weight machines, as well as cycling and pilates classes, to help you stay active at sea. You’ll also find basketball and tennis courts if you’re looking to fine-tune your game while you’re here.
