Spacious and serene pool areas, lovely lounges and elegant public areas, make the Veendam an ideal choice for those passengers looking for a leisurely pace of life at sea.
There’s high-calibre entertainment and excellent international cuisine on board this stylish cruise ship whose smiling staff will attend to your every need.
The Veendam is a super choice for guests wanting to try a fabulous cruise holiday for the very first time as well as those seasoned travellers who appreciate quality facilities and first-class service as they seek new horizons.
Entertainment and Recreation
Stunning interior design and amazing artworks fill the wonderful main atrium and plush walkways of this beautiful ship, meaning that merely meandering around the boutiques and lounges as you plan the day ahead is an exciting experience in itself.
You may decide to spend an hour or two lounging by one of the two attractive main pool areas, one of which has a retractable roof and the other a large movie screen showing films, concerts and sporting events.
The luxurious Greenhouse Spa provides all the latest health and wellbeing therapies as well as a full hair and beauty salon, perfect for days when you want some personal pampering.
Daytime activities include something for every age group, covering a variety of pursuits from card games and quizzes to dance classes and friendly sports competitions.
There’s also a chance to learn some handy new skills at a free digital workshop, just the thing for helping you share your holiday highlights with friends and family back home.
Another brilliant feature of the Zeendam’s events programme takes place in the purpose built Culinary Arts Centre, much like a TV kitchen where expert chefs will show you how to impress your dinner guests with mouth-watering gourmet dishes.
There’s also an ultra-modern gym with panoramic views over the wide blue seas, a jogging track and multi-sports court.
Separate areas for youngsters allow them their own space where they can have fun making new friends and taking part in parties and games under the supervision of qualified youth staff.
There’s the Club HAL computer games suite, a colourful open air Oasis deck and the trendy Loft lounge for teenagers to hang out with people of their own age.
In the evening you can catch polished performances by Broadway-calibre singers, comedians, dancers and speciality acts in the swish, cabaret-style Showroom at Sea.
Or, you may head for The Mix – a contemporary bar area with separate lounges for ales and spirits and Champagne, as well as the Martini Bar with its lively, sing-along piano music.
There’s a more classical mood in the classy Explorer’s Lounge and up at the Crow’s Nest, where you may have enjoyed spectacular sea views by day, you can boogie to classic floor-fillers until late at night.
A glitzy casino offers big money slot machines as well as your favourite cards, dice and roulette tables and other cosy bars and lounges are perfect places to chat to your new-found cruise friends over a quiet drink or two.
Wining & Dining
Many passengers enjoy the cruising tradition of dining at set-time sittings in the magnificent main Rotterdam restaurant where, if you prefer, you can also opt for the more flexible ‘As You Wish’ option and turn up to be seated when you like between 5.30pm and 9pm.
Either way you’ll enjoy superb five-course meals each night, served by your attentive and friendly waiters.
The Pinnacle Grill speciality steak and seafood restaurant is an amazing alternative dining environment where you will receive even more personal service in an exceptionally plush and romantic setting and it’s a great choice if you have a special occasion to celebrate during your cruise holiday.
But if you want something a little more laid-back then there’s always the spacious and bright Lido Restaurant with its bistro-style informal table-service for dinner and a selection of buffet dishes, grilled foods, pizzas and snacks throughout the day and late at night.
*Selected restaurants on many ships require reservations and may carry an additional charge.
