MS Veendam is named after the capital of Northern Netherland’s peat colonies. She features a two-tiered Rotterdam Dining Room and a fully teak deck. She features Lanai staterooms which have mirrored glass doors that open directly onto the Promenade deck.
The ship operates out of the Port of Boston during the summer and offers cruises to New York, Bermuda, Canada and New England. During the winter she generally relocates to South America – offering cruises to Argentina, Chile and Brazil.
During April 2009, MS Veendam undertook her biggest refit. Two additional decks of balcony staterooms were added to the rear of the ship and the rear pool was removed and replaced with four whirlpools. Due to the dramatic change of weight, a new duck-tail style stern was fitted to the ship for stability.
