Cruise Experience

Holland America Line's Veendam is a lovely ship that is just the perfect size to call on Bermuda's two loveliest ports of call, St. George and Hamilton. Unlike other cruise line's *mega ships* that are forced to dock at the furthest most point off the island, Holland America is the only cruise line getting you within walking distance of the best places on the island. Bermuda is a gem of an island where the people are friendly and the beaches are absolutely stunning.

In addition, this will be a Craft Cruises for Kids™ which means parents can bring their children for a rewarding, educational and enriching cruise retreat with expert instruction for your kids from The Handwork Studio. The Handwork Studio will organize a mixed media hand craft program for kids with a heavy emphasis on learning new skills, practical applications of mathematics, completing projects and making new friends.
