Zaandam Cruise Review by Paul Littleton
- Sail Date: March 2005
- Destination: Eastern Caribbean
- Cabin Type: Large Interior Stateroom
We chose an inside cabin and it was by far the best we have had as far as layout and space. The pillow and sheets stand out as far as comfort. The television was good, and our cabin steward did a great job as well. The shows ranged from OK to really good. I will point out that we do not live in New York city and are not accustomed to Broadway Shows as some have pointed out, but we know what we like and these were good. We particularly liked singer/impressionist Paul Tanner and the ventriloquist as well. Some have complained about the size of the Casino, but we found it to be adequate and never crowded. The Ports Of Call were all exceptional and we really enjoyed the Baths at Virgin Gorda!
There are always some negatives. The ship did seem to move and vibrate more than we remembered others doing at times. We also purchased a Soft-Drink card for $35.00 plus gratuity. ($80.50 Total!)A piece. This was not worth it! Diet-Coke was often given to us in small glasses, it was hard or impossible to find in the mornings, and the bar staff (for the most part) seemed irritated to Serve it to you. Holland needs to address this and do a better job.
Bottom line, it was good cruise on a good ship. The staff and service was wonderful and it is a good value for the money. We would definitely cruise on Holland again!
