Zaandam Cruises

4.1
(from 14 verified customers)

Taking her maiden voyage in 2000, the Zaandam can carry up to 1440 passengers with a 61,396 GT. Hallmarks of HAL include spacious staterooms and public areas, rich timber furnishings set with museum-quality paintings and antiques, discreet personal service, and artful itineraries that allow for overnights in key cities.

Zaandam’s 2015 refit upgraded many features of HAL’s Signature of Excellence program: the Pinnacle Grill alternative restaurant, the Neptune Lounge for suite guests, and the Culinary Arts Centre with demonstration kitchen. Appealing to older guests are the traditional features – high tea, formal nights, antique displays and ballroom dancing – while contemporary features appeal to younger guests. The theme aboard the Zaandam is flowers and fresh displays. It has plenty of places on deck for solitude, and inside an extensive library, and impressive three-deck atrium with a 7m-high Baroque-style pipe organ to highlight its music-related décor.)

Onboard Experience

  • Dining

    Dining on the Zaandam

    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. 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.

    The Lido Restaurant, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, has two serving lines during the day offering food cooked à la minute, and at night opens as a popular and casual bistro. Outside meal times it serves sandwiches, ice cream, and special late-night offerings. Additionally, there are pool-side burgers, hot dogs, Mexican food, and a coffee bar.
