Zuiderdam Cruise Review by Frisbeejerry
- Sail Date: May 2015
- Destination: Mediterranean
- Cabin Type: Deluxe Ocean-View Verandah Stateroom
HAL arrival and departure at the ports was just unacceptable . Especially at key ports like Florence, Rome . You don't actually get to see your itinerary until booked and they have your $$$. But , to dock at these major destinations 90 minute drive into town ( 3hr round trip ) and then depart in the middle of the afternoon is just wrong. Especially Rome where they were scheduled for departure at 4pm but because this was the beginning of a new 11 day cruise , we had to be back at 2:30 for muster station safety check or if we did not attend we would not be allowed on the boat. We had booked and paid for private (2 people) Vatican tour guide which was expensive and just a joke because we had so little time. We did not get to see anything else in Rome with the super early departure. Overall the room stewards and food service staff saved this ship.

Private TourFantastic - we used these guys three times - Florence , Naples, Rome. Each time was just perfect. Showed up in new Mercedes picked us up and became our tour guide for the day. We took a single cruise guest with us at no additional charge. This is much less expensive than if we had book big group excursion from HAL. They took us where we wanted at our own pace. Fun and professional !! Highly recommend !!View All 135 Private Tour Reviews
