Holland America has been forced to cancel Veendam's seven-night Canada and New England sailing due to a technical issue with one of the ship's propellers. The ship -- which was scheduled to depart September 28-2014, following an overnight in Quebec City -- suffered a "technical issue" with one of its propellers that requires immediate repairs. Holland America Line said more time will be needed to repair Veendam's propeller issue so the company canceled also the Oct. 4 seven-day cruise from Boston to Québec City.
