April 26, 2017 Cruise To Hawaii

Zaandam Cruise Review by siccar

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Apr 2017
  • Destination: Hawaii
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Suite

Been on this cruise three times before. Great if you like days at sea, as we do.

The entire staff of the Zaandam, in every department, provided excellent service, with a few monitor hiccups during the cruise. We are confused by a couple of negative reviews of the short repositioning cruise just prior to ours - the one from San Diego to Vancouver.

We heard rumours about up coming changes to the Zaandam during its next refit - such as the elimination of a library and changes to the Crow's Nest that we are concerned about, but change is constant in our current world, and we will wait to see if these rumours are true and, most importantly, if we feel they are positive ones or not.

Handrie, or dining room steward, was excellent in his attention to our needs during our entire cruise, and our several visits to the Pinnacle Grill reconfirmed what we had experienced on our three Hawaii previous cruises on the Zaandam - the steaks are outstanding. We have never experienced better in our business travels around the world.

Great to experience the same captain, Christopher Turner, as last year!

We have taken this cruise three times in the past and really enjoyed this port

Hilo

We have taken this cruise three times in the past and really enjoyed this port, as we have enjoyed Kona. The HAL tours exposed us to the many delights of this two ports in the past, particularly the helicopter tours , the lava tube tour and the observatory tour.
