ZAANDAM crusie ship slider aerial port


Zaandam - Holland America Line ship designed for small ship cruises


The Zaandam is another of the great Holland American Line ships. She was built in 2010 and had 11 decks. She can sleep up to 1432 guests

Designed to carry fewer guests while offering greater space, Zaandam is elegant and comfortable. Her décor is inspired by music and features musical instruments including signed guitars from Queen, Iggy Pop, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones and a Baroque-style pipe organ. While on board, rejuvenate with a spa treatment in the serene Greenhouse Spa & Salon®, indulge in a tantalizing meal at a fine dining restaurant or play a friendly game of pickleball at sea.
