  3. Zuiderdam
We choose this cruise for the ports and we were not deceived, although you need to be prepared since there is very few sea days. Beautiful areas to visit by sea. We found that the food was of less quality than our previous HA cruise as well as the ship's activities of which we were deceived (although not a lot of time for them on this specific cruise). As other cruisers we found the coffee to be of variable taste and strength, some days being horrible. We enjoyed our fixed dinner time with a great service from our butlers. We did one ship's exursion and organized ourselves all the other port's visits with a combination of private cabs, tours or Hop & Off. Zuiderdams was sometime docked outside the city and you should plan accordinly. In Copenhagen they have not advise that the public transportation stopped around 4:30 pm and a lot of us were in trouble to get back to ship, and had to take an expensive cab.

Cabin Review

Signature Superior Verandah Suite
Cabin SY 8050
Zuiderdam's suite offers a lot of space and storage. Great location in the middle and easy access to the pool and common areas. However, the 8th floor is to avoid due to the noise from the pool areas which could be disturbing early morning and when you are on the balcony.
