Propeller issue snags Veendam cruise

Propeller issue snags Veendam cruise

Holland America Line said it was forced to cancel a seven-day Canada/New England cruise on the Veendam to make emergency repairs on a propeller. 
The MS Veendam needed to be towed back to port by two tugboats.
The cruise had been scheduled to depart Quebec on Sept. 28.

Booked guests will receive a full refund of their cruise fare and all shore excursions booked through Holland America Line, plus a credit toward a future cruise equal to 100% of the fare paid.

HAL said it was working with guests to assist with travel arrangements back home.
