You can enjoy your wonderful cruise holiday at a leisurely pace on board the elegant, attractive and spacious ms Zaandam.
The musically themed ms Zaandam offers a unique shipboard atmosphere. Memorabilia from a variety of musical genres decorate the ship - from Bill Clinton's saxophone to signed guitars from Queen, Iggy Pop, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones. At the heart of the ms Zaandam is a soaring three-storey atrium with a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ, inspired by the traditional barrel organs still found on the streets of the Netherlands.
There are lots of luxurious yet cosy lounges and lovely pool decks where you’ll love unwinding and watching the world go by, as well as superb restaurants offering international fine dining in charming surroundings.
With itineraries to some of the world’s most spectacular destinations the Zaandam is a great choice for those new to cruising as well as regular travellers who seek exceptional service and fantastic facilities.
