We always get a veranda because it makes the room seem larger. Room was very comfortable.

Went kayaking and shopped. Ship did'nt have a lot of time here.
Don't Miss: Probably best port for shopping and dining.

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!
