MS Zaandam Reviews

Neville Maynard

star rating

My Girlfriend and I have just come back from our very first cruise together. Upon the Zaandam we thoroughly enjoyed our experience on board the Cruise Line Holland America.

The Zaandam has a very unique atmosphere, and we found this very relaxing on board. We found the ship very spacious with lots of public areas and very plush and comfortable accommodation.

We had booked a balcony cabin at the time of booking, however received an upgrade to a Mini Suite once on board. This was lovely as we didn’t realise until we received the tickets a week before our departure date.

The entertainment on board was fantastic. We really did enjoy the theatre however it was good to relax at some of the smaller bars and lounges and enjoy the music and guitarists.

The Bars were great on board and had a good selection of drinks, where my girlfriend made her way through the Cocktail list throughout the Cruise and I managed a few Whiskys.

The Food is probably one of the best I have had, my Father and I are Chefs and own our own Restaurant and I really was astounded once on board. I couldn’t get enough of the Food and took full advantage of the 3 to 5 course meals in the main dining room during the evenings. We ate in the Pinnacle Grill one evening, which I have to say was the Best. we also tried the Le Circe but I would say if going to one, I’d recommend Pinnacles.

Overall was a great cruise and I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to do a relaxing cruise for couples.

I would really recommend this cruise, it is perfect for adults and is one of the best ships I have ever been on. The ship felt very personal, even though it was a small ship and I met some great people on-board. The food was amazing and the staff could not do enough for you. I would really recommend the Pinacle restaurant on-board, the food was out of this world. This ship has incredible prices and it is such good value for money on-board and has some amazing itineraries around the world. I love the relaxed, casual feel of the ship and really felt pampered. The entertainment was incredible and definably the best entertainment I have ever seen on a ship.
