cool and cloudy

Sail Date: August 20, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

The ship was just the right size, not too big, not too small. Held around 1400 passengers, Ship was very clean and ship personnel were very friendly.
Food was excellent in all areas.

Pros: Cool and cloudy is just what we wanted since we live in Phoenix and it is always hot and dry in the summer. The ship was very clean and we recommend eating in the maindining room as often and using the lido deck for buffet style eating

Cons: Too many kids on the ship. Next time I wil look for an adults only cruise.

Recommends Zaandam? Yes!
