We have not cruised Veendam for at least three years and are very much looking forward to sailing her again. We always enjoyed her but stopped cruising her when HAL moved her homeport to Tampa. Seems we finally gave in and will travel to Tampa to join the ship for a lovely 12 days on January 3. Got our docs and found there will be 3 formal nights, 3 informal, and 6 casual. Seems a pretty good balance and is fine by us. What a nice way to wind down from the holidays.....being spoiled on an HAL ship.
