Read all the information left outside your door or on your bed - all worth the time to be up to date on activities etc. Request a statement the evening of the last night at sea, it gives you time to check for errors and have them corrected before the final statement is processed.

Leave notes in your room for the steward to get things you need (i.e. extra pillow, more paper)

Don't miss 3:00 pm High Tea. Go for open dining instead of a specific seating time. Bring a couple of bags. Eat at the Canaletto Italian Restaurant at least once.

Enjoyed all staff especially Lido deck. It was nice to have tacos and burgers around the pool for something different at lunch. Loved Happy Hour for drinks and appetizers.

When you first get on the ship, make sure to make a reservation for the Pinnacle Grill. It is a speciality restaurant with an added fee but is well worth the extra charge. They book up quickly, especially for popular times.

Always order your morning tea or coffee with room service to be delivered when you wake up. Always board as early as possible, spend time wandering the ship and getting a sense of where the areas you are interested in are. Read about all ship activities in the guide provided in your stateroom.

This 14 day trip on Zaandam is a very mature crowd, I would guess median age was past mid-60's. As such, much of what is offered onboard is geared towards the older crowd.

Small ship experience is nice. You can get in your R&R with ease.

some common area's for seating are inside and next to the outside edge of ship. It gives you a chance to look over the edge of ship from inside.
