    @masja_travels MS Veendam is part of Holland America's cruise line. The company originated in the Netherlands but is now American/British own. You may recognize some if the other Dutch names as MS Amsterdam, MS Maasdam, MS Ryndam...to name a few. What is great about this line is that there may be less than 2000 passengers on these ships as opposed to some of the super cruise ships these days😊😊😊

    One of the marvels of human engineering! Didn't they say that with the polar ice melt, ships could soon go north and avoid looping through the Panama Canal? Its days are numbered!
