Zaandam Cruise Review by cflat

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Sep 2017
  • Destination: South America
  • Cabin Type: Verandah Suite

We chose this ship because of the smaller size and weren’t disappointed. Superior service from all departments, everyone was so friendly. Great food! We took advantage of all the dining venues on offer and enjoyed the variety, we found the dining staff always ready and able to accommodate special requests. Room service was speedy and accurate. Love the lemonade in the buffet. Balcony cabin included some extras that were appreciated, like bathrobes, umbrella and binoculars. We used the safe and fridge, and would find it hard to be without them. The South American ports were all new to us, and we found the excursions to be as described, well organized and professionally run. The lemonade or hot chocolate at the gangway on return was a welcome sight. Shopping at the pier was always available with quality merchandise on offer. Disembarkation was organized better than what we have experienced before. We found very little to complain about.

Cabin Review

Verandah Suite
Cabin A 6143

A huge amount of storage space. Could have used more than one plug in. A newer hair dryer was provided in a desk drawer, but could not be used in the bathroom because no plug available. The bathroom could use better ventilation...two showers in succession made it almost intolerable.
