Wonderful Start, Rough Ending

May 23rd, 2019

Wonderful trip with a mediocre ending. It appears that the cruise lines know this trip was set too early in the season but didn't care.

Difficult Cruise

May 6th, 2019

This would rank as our least favorite cruise. Zaandam, which we have cruised on twice before, was tired and need some loving care (preventative Maintenance) The staff made the cruise. The weather was cold and windy, but then it is Springtime! Missing the day in Montreal was a bummer. Entertainment was not as good as expected.

Canada cruise

May 6th, 2019

The bad weather was not the fault of Zaandam, but we were happy when the cruise was over. I would not recommend a visit to Canada this early in the season.

This ship needs upgrading. The TV in our stateroom never worked right even after replacing it with a different one. The DVD player didn't work at all so we never got to watch any movies. ????

Antarctica and South America are a must see, but not on Holland America

Feb 26th, 2019

I've said it. Great itinerary. Old, boring ship with very little interesting to do on board. But if you are 80 or above, it is probably your speed
