Veendam vs. Summit

Jump to last reply

Dad has decided he wants to go to Bermuda.

Holland America keeps sending him snazzy offers. In this case the Veendam out of Boston for $749. Before booking, I took a look around at what else might be available, and the Summit is out of Bayonne for $599 a person inside with a beverage package thrown in.

Bayonne is a much, much easier port for us. I am delighted not to have to drag a somewhat frail eighty-six year old to Boston. Also not only is it cheaper, we don't have to pay for transport to Boston, hotels in Boston, or cabs in Boston.

However, Dad likes HAL. He's been on it twice, and while we end up on Carnival with some frequency, Dad greatly prefers Holland America. Celebrity is kind of an unknown quantity. No-one in the family has ever been on it, and I've seen some lackluster reviews.

Is Celebrity going to be a comparable experience, or is Dad going to be grumpy?
