Zaandam Cruise Review by Oaktownlady
- Sail Date: April 2019
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Large Ocean-View Stateroom
Embarkation was somewhat disorganized; we arrived in Boston on a redeye at 7:30 am but couldn't board until 11:00 am. Spent most of this time on folding chairs.
Enjoyed room service breakfast EVERY MORNING! My husband went early to Lido Deck each morning for his favorite SMOKED SALMON! Puff pastry sweet rolls every morning, also!
Lido Deck pool area was great, 2 hot tubs and pool 81 degrees F. Never too crowded. I sat at a table for lunch occasionally; taco bar/hamburger/french fries stand open until 5pm.
Service was exemplary. Sometimes a bit too obsequious, but staff were very well trained.
Magician show and ventriloquist shows were very, very funny.
Disappointed that the organ recital was recorded; thought there would be an actual organist (was not made clear).
Met some interesting Canadians on the cruise who were familiar with the area, but still enjoyed the cruise!!
