• Unscheduled ms Veendam Drydock

    Repair work has been in progress to address a technical problem with one of the propellers on ms Veendam. As work has progressed alongside in Quebec, it has been determined that a complete repair can only be made in a dry-dock.

    As a result, Holland America Line regrettably must cancel the seven day Canada & New England cruises on ms Veendam departing Oct. 4 from Boston to Quebec and Oct. 11 from Quebec to Boston.

    Guests booked on the seven-day Oct. 4th and Oct. 11th sailings will receive a full refund of their cruise fare plus a future cruise credit of 100 percent of their cruise fare paid. In addition, HAL will reimburse non-refundable expenses such as missed tours and excursions that were purchased through Holland America Line.
