Very Disappointed : Zuiderdam Cruise Review by clover59
Overall Member Rating
The buffet was ok , but not special, there were no decorated carved watermelon or other fruit and veggies as I have seen on all the other ships I have sailed on, it was more like a cafeteria nothing to write home about, the food itself was just ok. The hamburger hot dog shack was only open till 5 PM , which I think should have been open till at least 10 or 11 PM for late night snacking, even the latenight snack at the buffet was only open from 10:30pm to 11:30pm after that your out of luck unless you want to sit in your room and have room service .
The rooms were spacious and comfortable , and in the ports we had ample time to do everything that we wanted to do , no complaints about the port times but definitely a huge complaint about how far we had to walk to get to town. It was awful !
We had with us a 10 year old and a 1 & 2 year old . We could have taken the 10 year old to play in the playroom but they would not allow the younger 2 kids in even if we stayed with them. Therefor leaving absolutely nothing for the kids to do.
The entertainment onboard was lacking, the shows were short and not good with the exception of the recycled percussion group they were awesome. The had very limited activities on board and we found ourselves sitting around waiting for something to happen that we could watch or join into. We all found it quite boring, I have never been bored on a cruise ship before, but then again I had never traveled with Holland America before , and I NEVER will again ! Less
