Holland America's ms Veendam
The ms Veendam is a refreshingly intimate, agile, and extremely well laid out and easy to navigate. This ship one-third the size of today's biggest megaships. Decor is a subdued scheme of earthy tones and traditional artwork. Touches of marble, teak, polished brass, and multimillion-dollar collections of art and maritime artifacts lend a classic ambience, and many decorative themes emphasize the Netherlands' seafaring traditions.
The onboard ambiance is low-key, the cabins are large and comfortable, and there are dozens of comfortable nooks all over the ships in which you can curl up and relax.
