ms Zaandam Cruises 2019 - 2020


Cruise the waves in harmony aboard the ms Zaandam

Cruises on board the ms Zaandam

As the world’s leading cruise line, the Holland America Line has an uncompromising commitment to sustainability, meaning that when you cruise with them, the focus is on respect for the ocean and the places you visit. The ms Zaandam is a mid-sized family ship, and having fewer guests on board means more room for you and your family. This musically-themed ship is home to Bill Clinton’s saxophone, as well as signed guitars that once belonged to Eric Clapton, Iggy Pop, Queen, and the Rolling Stones. And with the baroque-style Dutch pipe organ in the entrance hall, you can cruise the waves in musical harmony.

Discover the natural world on board with BBC Earth Experiences; learn how to make movies and edit videos in the digital workshops; or simply relax at the Greenhouse Spa and Salon, safe in the knowledge that the kids are being well looked after at Club HAL®, the onboard kids’ club. Choose from a range of high-class dining options, and spend your evenings watching movies, living it up at the casino; or simply enjoying a sunset cocktail or two.

Wherever you eat aboard the ms Zaandam, you’ll do it in style, thanks to the Culinary Council: a team of five world-class celebrity chefs who work tirelessly to bring you inspired flavors and top-quality cuisine.

Entertainment and Activities

With Club HAL® offering entertainment programs for kids aged 3-17, you can treat yourself to a massage in the treatment rooms, get your hair and nails done, or stay fit in the onboard fitness center. Peruse the library at the Explorations Café, or visit the Rijksmuseum; whatever you do, you’re in for a treat.

Dress Code

First and last nights are casual, and so are nights in port, but there are one or two formal nights on each cruise. Otherwise resort casual is the norm.
