The ship for the nearly dead

Sail Date: March 09, 2013

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Inside

I didn't enjoy this ship very much due to a variety of reasons. Primarily it was extremely boring, being that you are at sea most of the time you need proper and engaging entertainment on board. The average age is 74 so if you are retired and in this age group this cruise line is the one for you! However if you are looking for music, parties and dancing definitely NOT. The food in the the lido deck which is available most of the day was extremely average and it was repetitive same food every day, to the point where you didn't know what to eat by day 4.The food was usually cold and the plates scolding burn your hands hot, so that sucked. However, the food in the dinning room for the seated dinner was very good, great variety, tasty meals and nice setting. The staff aboard the Zandam was fantastic I don't have any complains from room Stuart's, dinning attendants or any other member that served or picked up after me. They always had a smile and were extremely helpful.
