Baltic Explorer


Grandly proportioned and designed to carry fewer passengers than other ships in her class, Holland America's ms Veendam is among the most spacious ships at sea. Among her many delights: a soaring atrium lobby around which are clustered all the essential services: the front office, shore excursion office, photo gallery, boutiques, internet center, the lively Ocean Bar. Enjoy the two-tiered Rotterdam Dining Room with grand sweeping staircase, and suites with their own private verandahs, offering an airy, outdoor room for relaxing, dining, and private viewing. All so you have an extra measure of space.


Guests aboard Veendam enjoy a multi-million dollar art and antique collection, wide teak decks, elegant dining rooms, and spacious staterooms — many with private verandahs.
