Why Choose Zuiderdam?
  • Pro: Compact-size indoor pool (with polar bear!) perfect for iffy weather
  • Con: Limited entertainment for itineraries with lots of sea days
  • Bottom line: A great choice for a port-heavy sailing, particularly in colder climates

Zuiderdam Cabins

Editor Rating

Zuiderdam has 929 cabins, with more than 80 percent facing outside. When the ship enters dry dock in 2015, another 28 inside and balcony cabins will be added on Deck 10. Wheelchair accessible rooms are available in all classes, including suites. Triples and quads are available for families.

All cabins are decorated in golds and blues, with red sofas and blond wood. All have two Mariner's Dream twin beds that can be configured into a queen, several closets and shelves, a nightstand for each side of the bed and a vanity with chair and a magnifying mirror. Baggage can be stored underneath the bed, and each cabin has European and American outlets.

In-room entertainment consists of a flat-screen TV with a limited number of channels, including MSNBC, CNBC, ESPN, BBC, the Comedy Channel and FOX news. You can order DVDs from a comprehensive list to be delivered to your room -- a quaint throwback in this age of On Demand.

Bathrooms have Corian countertops and sinks, a shelf and a medicine cabinet. Most showers come with a full bathtub -- unusual for cabins under suite level. Another plus -- the shower curtain has a liner to avoid the dreaded cling. Included bath amenities for most cabins are Elemis-branded bar soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion.

Interior: Inside cabins range from 151 to 233 square feet and are located on Decks 1 and 4 through 8.

Oceanview/Porthole: Oceanview cabins are 174 to 180 square feet, and are located on Decks 1 and 4 through 6.

Balcony: Veranda cabins range from 212 to 359 square feet, including balcony, and are located on Decks 4 through 8. The standard balcony is large enough for two chairs and a small table. Our cabin, 4164, and neighboring 4166 had larger-than-usual balconies, thanks to their position near a crew closet; our balcony was roomy enough for a lounger, in addition to the chair and table. Cabins on the aft also have larger balconies.

Suites: Signature suites range from 273 to 456 square feet and are located on Decks 5, 6 and 8. These rooms have a queen-sized bed, separate shower and bathtub and larger balconies. There are also fresh flowers and an umbrella available for use.

Neptune Suite cabins range from 500 to 712 square feet, and are located on Decks 4 through 8. These rooms have a king-sized bed, separate shower and bathtub, dual sinks, walk-in closet and larger balconies.

The largest suites on Zuiderdam are the two Pinnacle Suites, each a monster 1,150 square feet, including a sizable balcony. They are located on Deck 7 and include a living room, a dining room, a king-sized bed, a dressing room, a refrigerator and microwave, and a guest bathroom.

Passengers in Neptune and Pinnacle suites have access to the Neptune Lounge, with a concierge and complimentary snacks, on Deck 7. Other amenities include complimentary binoculars and umbrella use, corsages and boutonnieres for formal night, priority seating, bottled water and hors d'oeuvres before dinner, and laundry, pressing and dry cleaning.

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 ... Read more

These are about to be refurbished, but we knew, from the same cabin on the Oosterdam a few months ago what the changes will be like. The layout of this cabin is, IMO, the best we've ever had (that goes to all SS/SY on these ships). The SS are a bit ... Read more

The cabin was adequate, but the bathroom was in need of refurbishment. As it was midship, we felt little to no movement.... Read more
