The recently refurbished ms Veendam is a beautiful mid-sized cruise ship, and is a part of the acclaimed Holland America Line fleet. This spacious vessel can be found cruising in some of the most popular vacation destinations in the world, including Bermuda and South America.

Among the enhancements that Holland America Line blessed ms Veendam with during its 2009 refurbishment was the addition of unique Lanai staterooms, as well as a bunch of Spa staterooms (see below for more details). All staterooms received new décor, modern wall sconces, carpeting, drapes, pillows and bed runners, resurfaced desks and vanities, as well as new vanities and cabinetry in the bathrooms.

Holland America Line is well known for their superior service and top-quality cuisine. As such, there are a number of fantastic dining options available on a ms Veendam cruise. The two-story Rotterdam Dining Room is the ship's main restaurant, offering guests a tasty multi-course meal on each night of the cruise (as well as breakfast and lunch during the day). The Lido Restaurant is open for a three meals, and has a variety of fresh, cooked-to-order specialists. Located nearby is Canaletto, a casual Italian eatery. 24-hour room service is a convenient option available daily to all guests.

There's so much to do while on a ms Veendam cruise. Among the popular public spaces are Mix, an innovative area made up of a few bars, the two-level Showroom at Sea, featuring an entertaining live performance on each night of the cruise, a casino, swimming pools, whirlpools, a spa, The Culinary Arts Center (offering gourmet cooking lessons), duty-free shopping boutiques, as well as a photo gallery and art gallery...and the list goes on!
