Our cruise ship is the beautiful Holland America “Zuiderdam”
And no flying to take this cruise.

The Zuiderdam is a beautiful example of the best possible amenities in today’s luxury liners. Three pools, four hot tubs, spa
& fitness center, golf pro shop, jogging and walking trails, golf driving net, tennis and volleyball courts, outdoor chess,
internet café, library, Vista auditorium with Las Vegas style entertainment, and shopping galore at the Newbury Street
Shops. There’s so much to do on board, it’s hard to leave the ship when we reach the ports. Just walking around the ship
viewing the famous collection of artistic items by folks like Andy Warhol and Frank Lloyd Wright, plus the –3- story atrium
make just being on the ship a wonderful experience. Our ship is longer than three football fields and carries over 1900
passengers and a crew of over 800. That’s approximately one employee for every two passengers. Talk about excellent
If you like to eat, take a good look at your many restaurant choices.
From the buffets to the beautiful Vista Dining Room & 24-hour a day room service,
you just won’t go hungry on the Zuiderdam.
