  3. Zuiderdam
the family decided to go for baltic region this time and i think zuiderdam is the HAL ship that cruises to baltic. this ship is not unfamiliar to us. we have boarded this ship before to europe. it was not a bad ride... satisfactory to our liking..majority of the staff were friendly and professional. our cabin server, formal dining waiters, bistro servers and most lido waiters and waitresses were deligent of their duties. however, we did not like the set up of the drinking glasses and coffee cups being ready at the table, because sometimes it mixes with the dirty utensils that passengers just damp on the table. i think they should change that set up. The food was satisfactory. the shows were acceptable but ABBA Rav was excellent and both house bands were excellent too. the location of our cabin was good. during the big current, you can feel the bad motion on the upper level of the ship, but in our cabin's location the movement was minimal.. 1 day to embarkation, i felt a flu like symptoms. and as we headed home on the plane, i felt so terrible and having sore throat. and finally when i got home, I went to the doctor and was diagnosed of a virus i contracted in my journey..I was bedridden for two days taking antibiotic and cold tylenol. Im ok on this 4th day.though im still a little oozzzie......

Unsatisfactory excursion in Berlin

Cabin J
there were 4 of us in the interior cabin so it was a lil crowded.. i will not do that again! It was cheap but i rather pay to be comfortable.
