Veendam at Boca Da Valeria, Brazil

Submitted by: Myles

On April 8, the ms Veendam anchored near the small village of Boca da Valeria, Brazil. As only a few ships visit this small community each year, the crew and officers made a huge charity run and we also decided to invite some of the children from the school on board for lunch and a ship tour.

Here everyone is lined up and ready to board the tender-boat.

  1. Fantastic! It sure looks like the kids enjoyed it as much as the staff seemed to in the pictures.
    We are new to cruising and thinking of cruising with Holland Ameirca onboard the Veendam.
    Personal people stories like this one bring home the personal touch offered by the company and the ship’s crew.
    Congratulations and keep up the great work. Hope to see you “on the waves” soon.
