Setting sail from Boston

Boston is one of the oldest cities in the USA, and in amongst the skyscrapers are plenty of red-brick buildings, a Georgian architecture that lends the city a distinctly European feel. The Freedom Trail is a 2 ½ mile walking route around the city that gives an excellent introduction to American history, and Boston is home to a wealth of cultural riches, including the superb Museum of Fine Arts, as well as the world famous Harvard University. Bostonians are also big sports fans, and one of the country's biggest baseball teams, the Red Sox, play their home matches at Fenway Park.

Don't miss

Whatever else you do, walk the Freedom Trail, the perfect introduction to Colonial Revolutionary Boston, covering 16 historical sites in the course of two or three hours. You can do it on your own!

Holland America Line cruises - MS Veendam
Holland America Line cruises - MS Veendam Neptune Suite
Holland America Line cruises - MS Veendam pool deck

This classic member of the Holland America Line fleet, with an attractive capacity of 1,350, has recently undergone a major enhancement to bring her in line with the more recent builds, giving guests the advantage of intimacy and style.

What we love

The grand proportions of Veendam are enhanced by a Holland America Line art and antique collection worth over two million dollars. We do like the new Lanai staterooms, with sliding glass doors opening onto the walk-around Lower Promenade Deck.
