Veendam cruise ship deck plan has a total of 675 staterooms for 1350 passengers (max capacity is 1620 guests), served by 560 crew/staff. The ship has 10 passenger accessible decks, 12 lounges and bars, 2 swimming pools (one with retractable glass roof), 2 jacuzzies, 8 elevators.
In 2016, Holland America Line updated the Veendam’s shipboard programming (enrichment, entertainment and children) replacing the old “Dancing With the Stars” with “BBC Earth” content.
- The ship’s theater hosts daily expert lectures, presentations, a nature-themed game show with BBC Earth screenings and introductions by the crews that filmed these series. A signature concert in the evenings is based on the “Frozen Planet” program (polar regions-themed) – a spectacular multimedia show with live musicians.
- The ship’s children club facilities feature an explorer trail, workshops (including on journalism and filming), fact shows (animals, dinosaurs).
- Holland America themed cruises feature access to the BBC Earth series creators, sharing behind-the-scenes media and stories. Children have the opportunity to participate in filming workshops.
