The MS Veendam is a classical vessel with a contemporary touch originally made by the Italian shipbuilders Fincantieri, with headquarters in Trieste. The ship has been in service since 1996 but was given a massive overhaul three years ago. The Veendam is the final ship of its class belonging to the Holland America line. This is the Anglo-US company dating back to 1873, when it was known as the Netherlands-America Steamship Company. The cruise line originally called Rotterdam its home but it is now based in Seattle, Washington, U.S.
It was back in 2009 when numerous exciting additions were made to the Veendam. These included having beautiful balcony cabins fitted to the rear of the vessel, many with aft facing verandas. The Veendam additionally has luxury Lana cabins with private promenade decks, accessible by sliding doors made of glass. The cruise ship boasts relaxing spa cabins, with all the modern conveniences and facilities. The Veendam also has the finest state rooms with excellent 21st Century decoration and interior design.

The cruise ship will then come back to the berth the following Tuesday, the 17th of July, at eight in the morning. The ship will then stay for another three days, prior to its one thirty departure on the 20th.
