  • The musically themed ms Zaandam offers a unique shipboard atmosphere. Her décor includes artifacts and memorabilia representing various musical genres - from a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ in the atrium to guitars signed by rock icons The Rolling Stones. Of course, guests enjoy Holland America's signature offerings, such as world-class cuisine in the Rotterdam Dining Room, which spans two decks and features Rosenthal china, starched linens, silver and fresh flowers.

    I would take a Holland trip again when going to the place that I want to go. Very professional organization. Alaska is great, and Holland brought us in touch with the State. Too much Tourists sales in the cities, but that is not Holland's fault. Typical for cruises.

    It was a wonderful experience. Shore excursions were very well organized and we were lucky with weather. Land portion was also very interesting, again we were lucky with weather and with wild life sightings during tundra tour. Travel from Seward to Denali by coach is a little long. Travel on return from Denali to Anchorage by train was a much more pleasant experience.

    Antarctica

    12/2018 South America (Santiago round to Buenos Aires); Antarctica; Falkland Islands
    Full Review
    This was a trip of a lifetime. We had great excursions, including ordering private car through HAL twice--great English guides/drivers gave us incredible insight into the local community. Scenery did not disappoint. Some of the ports were small but that gave us variety and we don't love a big city. We ate almost exclusively in the Pinnacle (upcharge for dinner, but breakfast service was free to Neptune Suite). We never ate in the Lido (buffet). Neptune Lounge food was the same every morning/noon/evening--a bit monotonous but you knew what to expect. Concierge was absolutely superb! Handled everything I needed and MORE! Incredible! She really pushed the trip to 5 Star status for us!
    Pros Friendly staff; incredible scenery; outstanding Neptune Suite service and concierge
    Cons Rough waters (got seasick);Older vessel (a bit tired looking); Thermal suite was small

    Generally OK, but most of cost of every excursion was too high for the quality of service. The service of Westmark was so poor and unkind. They looked so exhausted.
    Pros Alaskan rail road trip. Good program to experience Alaska overall at first time visit.
    Cons Very poor internet WiFi services. Too expensive and too slow. Vessel engine noise and vibration was a little too high to sleep comfortably.

    We began the Cruise in Boston in September and finished on 10-6 in Montreal! One of our goals was to see fall colors and we were a little early this year! Best colors were in Quebec with colors getting really pretty the day we flew home from Montreal! Overall the weather was great! It was very windy the day we were to spend in Charolete Town so they could not make that stop but they added great things for us to do that day on the ship!

    Alaska cruise on Zaandam

    6/2016 Alaska
    Full Review
    My sister, who has cruised before, thought that the ship was an older one, but it was well set up, with plenty of room.
    Pros The ship staff were very friendly and helpful. It was a smaller ship, so it was fairly easy to get around. The best thing they did was to put the day of the week mats in the elevators. There were plenty of different activities for people to do. My group gambled at the casino, entered touraments there, played in trivia contests, and went to the nightly shows. There were programs teaching people how to use computer apps, forest rangers came on and gave programs, and there were other programs that I don't recall now.
    Cons The staff at the main restaurant (Rotterdam) continually got confused as to who ordered which appetizer, entree, etc.

    1. They accomplished what was advertised. 2. Internet access horrible, and cost criminally high. 3. They fumbled badly at the end. Our luggage was to be delivered to Santiago airport in time for our departure. It did not arrive, and we had to spend an extra night in Santiago ($205) waiting for it...and thus lost $300 on the prepaid room at out next destination. I expect some form of reimbursement.

    Relaxing trip to Alaska with perfect weather

    6/2017 Alaska
    Full Review
    This was our third trip to Alaska. This time the weather was excellent and views of Denali were spectacular. We had seen all the ports in previous visits, so we knew what to expect and skipped the offshore ship excursions. All in all it was a chance to unwind and enjoy the pampering. Would have liked to see more marine life from the ship. Not even many animals in Glacier Bay this time. But that's something the ship can't control, like the weather.
    Pros Food and drinks excellent, verandah suite (with bathtub!) had plenty of storage room and fine service from Agus, our cabin steward. We saw the top of Mt. McKinley on the land portion of the package and got close to bears, caribou, moose.
    Cons Bathroom door spring too tight.

    Review of Boston to Montreal Cruise

    6/2019 Boston, MA; Bar Harbor, ME; Halifax, NS; Charlottetown, PIE; Sidney, PIE; Quebec City, Quebec; Montreal.
    Full Review
    Excellent overall experience. Our flight had weather delays before leaving from Atlanta and we almost missed the ship. We notified the Holland Travel Services Dept. when we landed in Boston. They alerted their crew at the airport who made sure we made it to the ship before it departed. We had booked the flight through Holland and purchased airport transfers from them also. The cruise was very enjoyable after we settled in and caught our breath.
    Pros Excellent menu choices and quality of food. Attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff. Interesting ports of call.
    Cons 18 year old ship with a step in bathtub. Some elevators were not in service.

    A Touch of Antarctica

    1/2017 South America and Antarctica

    I thought I would see more animals,sea animals and birds than I did. Due to my age and ability I had to be selective on the choices I made at ports. I felt the tours were pretty pricey. I have become used to inclusive cruises so missed that convenience. My stateroom was smaller also than I have had on Crystal and Regent. Too bad the gentlemen hosts have been eliminated. I thought that the big evening shows had been too as the back of the daily listed entertainment in the "lounges." When I discovered the big room entertainment I found the spot lighting sweeping the audience was very annoying. The desserts were very, very good. Breads were good but never warm and the butter was ice hard so spreading was impossible. The pizza in Lido was never hot. I found Lido confusing so did not like eating there. We appreciated the room service. It was excellent. The print was very faint in places on the Navigator and a Gala menu was hard to read. I found using the computer room very frustrating as it was a long series of steps to remember and follow. It had always been simple on other ships and help available in the room. The lectures were very informative. It was hard gathering port info re alternate available shuttles, taxies, vans, etc. or whether town would be available to just walk a bit and return to ship. I wanted to avoid food waste by having small portions. That was difficult. Really appreciated being able to stay in stateroom at debarkation time until our number/color was called. Long periods away from your bathroom is not good! Buying the transfers is a must. Very efficient and inexpensive. The service people were wonderful.

    Hoped to see humpback whales bubble-net feeding, but most whales had already headed south to Hawaii by September, and not enough remained to cooperate in bubble-net feeding.
    Pros Classy ship, great service, excellent food, good excursions. Saw Denali on a perfect, cloudless day.
    Cons Small kitchen fire on the first afternoon, right after safety drill. Handled quickly, no danger to anyone.

    7 day Alaska cruise, from Vancouver

    6/2014 Alaska (Juneau, Skagway, Tracy Arm, Ketchican)
    Full Review
    Nice ship and staff, excellent food. Very smooth sailing. Plenty of activities, although our 17 year old did not attend the youth activities (didn't look like there were many older teens aboard). Shore excursions we took were good (Juneau - dog musher's camp, Skagway - White Pass railroad round trip). Took a bus to the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau as well - glacier is really interesting and good visitor's center. We were glad we got a cabin with a window - next time would like to get a balcony. Tracy Arm was beautiful - this was the first sailing of the summer that was able to get into Tracy Arm (too much floating ice earlier in the season).
    Pros Whole trip was good
    Cons None for us; might be slow for teenagers looking for lots of new teenage friends on the ship

    Responsive crew, well trained, most congenial. Part of the Pearl Harbor tour was cancelled because of wind, not allowing a visit to the battleship Arizona, but the bill was compensated for the cancellation. Ship activities available were extensive. 5 days each direction just cruising the Pacific Ocean tended to be slow in passing.
    Pros One of the better HAL ships
    Cons Noisy cabin just below the aft deck lounge chairs
