This mornings arrival of the Veendam serves as notice that the cruise season is well under way. The Cruise Season began on Sunday with the arrival of Celebrity Cruises Infinity.
For the second year in a row, Veendam was the second vessel of the year to arrive. Today she must have thruster issues, as she took the tug Atlantic Willow to help her tie up at pier 31, despite the calm conditions. This is likely due to the work which is underway to configure the cruise terminal for shore power.
