    Cool Cruiser
  1. How is the HAL MS Veendam doing these days? Some of the recent reviews from early 2017 are not positive. I'm considering the July 22nd 7-day cruise from Boston. Problems I've read about are: - plumbing issues, toilets and showers not working. Rooms flooding. - Air conditioning not working in rooms. - Food quality has been lower than what many cruisers are used to from HAL. This surprises me, as the HAL ships I've been on before had excellent food. The Veendam is an older ship. In service since 1996. Refit in 2009 and 2012. I'm hesitant to cruise on a ship this old, especially if people are having the same issues on multiple cruises. Any stories from recent cruises on the Veendam, good or bad? Edited to add: Also several positive reviews from early 2017 cruises! Many positive reviews, but a few trends in the negative reviews I wanted to find out about.
