Ship Facts: Zuiderdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Zuiderdam Deck Plans
Definately a destination to see!

This ship is mid size so about 2,000 guests on board. The cruise catered age group of 60 and up.

An older ship but renovated in 2011 and done in a retro style. Didn't think much about the art they displayed but that is a personal thing.

Traveled with 3 other ladies and we got upgraded to the Neptune suite. We had so many free perks with this suite, we were delighted.

An all Indonesian crew we did not meet any 'cranky' or unhelpful staff - they were all great.

The disco doesn't get much action and when you go in the DJ plays what he wants, not too responsive to requests.

Piano Bar was a blast and we closed it down every night - Mike McCabe was the entertainer and he was really good - engaged his guests.

Night before disembarking we got all our luggage ready as we were to leave at 7:00 am. Thinking back on it we should have left our valuables in the safe until we were leaving. All four of us had money taken out of our wallets (it must have happened once we went out for the evening). I lost $100. as did my friend and the other two didn't have much but came to about $50.00. Cruise line doesn't do anything about it but did say they would investigate.
