Zaandam Cruise Review by fazze
- Sail Date: May 2017
- Destination: Alaska
- Cabin Type: Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Ship is medium size, about 1250 passengers. Common areas are very nice. Cabins are OK but a regular stateroom with a large window felt cramped. Plenty of room for our luggage and clothes. A balcony is nice to have but we seldom used it on a previous cruise. I think it would have been nicer to have the option weather permitting.
Dining room food and service was excellent. Lido was OK but service needs some help. In-room dining service was good.
Technology is lacking. The ship internet service can only be used to see some menus & agendas. One cannot order excursions or shop. You have to wait in line at front desk or travel consultant area when they are opened. Onboard internet service is $55/hour. I did not receive my onboard credit and am still trying to get it resolved.
We heard mixed reviews on entertainment. Most people loved the comedian.
Ports visited were great. Quaint towns with lots of shops. Never realized Alaska ports were into the jewelry businesses. Heavily emphasized on the ship too.
