Not as good as previous experiences with Holland America. Food in the Lido was poorer quality and the hot table items were barely warm, very poor vegetable selection.

the main dining room menu choices were not great and now there are more up charges. On previous cruises with this line and the others we have travelled with the food was always one of the highlights this time it was definitely not it was consistent but not in a good way. the service in the Lido was almost absent in the dinner hour. Our room was large and the full tub was a plus, the ship does need a refresher it is showing signs of it's age, the engine vibration at low speed was very noticeable particularly at night when we were trying to sleep. Not sure whether I would go on Zaandam for a longer cruise, probably not. the theater is a nice space with good audio and there was a very good musician one evening but the interpretive dance show was very short and kind of boring.
