Veendam Review

Cruise Ship Overview

The fourth and final Statendam-class ship, Veendam entered service in the Holland America Line fleet in 1996. The ship’s floral theme is expressed through the art and décor, from classic paintings of still-life flowers, to the stylized flowers in the small panels on the ceiling of the Piano Bar. Also displayed is a large collection of museum-quality ship models, including valuable prisoner of war models made from bone.

The sister ships included in the S- or Statendam-class retain the most classic and traditional characteristics of Holland America Line vessels. Routinely updated with innovative features, including Signature of Excellence upgrades, they combine all the advantages of intimate, midsize vessels with high-tech and stylish details.

At the heart of the ships, triple-deck atriums graced by suspended glass sculptures open onto three so-called promenade decks; the lowest contains staterooms encircled by a wide, teak outdoor deck furnished with padded steamer chairs, while interior, art-filled passageways flow past lounges and public rooms on the two decks above. Either reach the lower dining room floor via the aft elevator, or enter one deck above and make a grand entrance down the sweeping staircase.
