Zaandam Review


Pros and Cons

Pros: home of Holland America’s Culinary Arts Institute, the ship's theaters are also cinemas; waiters serve made-to-order entrées in the Lido restaurant at dinner; an evening poolside barbecue buffet is usually scheduled during each cruise.

Cons: expanded spa facilities make the gym area somewhat tight; the spa expansion eliminated complimentary men’s and women’s steam rooms; sandwiched between the Lido pool and Lido bar, the children’s wading pool area can become quite boisterous.
