Zaandam Overview

MS Zaandam cruises the North Atlantic, Caribbean Sea, Panama Canal and South America. In March 2020 put aside 31 nights to see the best of Pacific South America and Panama. From April to October 2020 Zaandam crosses the North Atlantic each way between Boston and Amsterdam. The scenic cruise through Prince Christian Sound in Greenland is one amazing journey. Hopefully guests will see the Northern Lights, and maybe the Midnight Sun – as well as two continents. From late 2021 Zaandam returns to the Caribbean, and specialises in Panama crossings, a special event that brings out the ship’s officers every time! HAL arranges excellent on-shore excursions, or you can arrange your own private tours.

Accommodation

Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view, some with panoramic windows; and three levels of suites – Vista, Neptune and Pinnacle. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding and bath amenities, fresh fruit on request, and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Triple and quad cabins are available, as well as interconnecting cabins for up to six guests. Many staterooms are modified accessible and wheelchair accessible (21 cabins, some near and some far from elevators). There are no single cabins.

Food and Dining

The ship has seven formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests can be ordered pre-cruise. One night in seven is a formal night, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Showroom at Sea or a musical recital. There are two alternative restaurants, best to reserve in advance: The pay extra Pinnacle Grill for steaks and seafood (and occasionally the Pinnacle – Le Cirque), and the Italian-American-influenced Canaletto. Ask about wine packages.

Entertainment

At night the two-deck Show Lounge offers (twice nightly) musical productions, cabaret, and its features include three video screens. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. Guests can crowd around the Piano Bar for a sing-along: this is a very popular location. View recent movies in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a Sea Day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.
