General Description

The last of Holland America's Statendam-class ships, Veendam has always had a strong traditional flavor, but its major upgrade in 2009 has transformed the ship into a trendsetter for its class. Now measuring 57,092 tons and carrying 1,350 passengers (up from 1,266), Veendam's enhancements include new lanai and spa cabin categories, a more contemporary look in public areas and cabins, additional dining options and a revamped theater experience. The overhaul has given new energy to this little ship, even while the service kinks were being worked out on my June 2009 cruise.
