Magnificent Ports on this cruise

Sail Date: February 27, 2009

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Singles/Friends

Room Type: Balcony

We really loved our balcony room! How great to have a tub along with a shower! Enjoyed each and every bar and the staff on the ship was superb. The glass elevators on the outside of the ship provided great views and were ever so enjoyable. The dining room was lovely and our food mediocre.

Pros: Loved the selection of shore excursions

Cons: the entertainment was very poor for a HAL ship! Have had better on Carnival!

Recommends Zuiderdam? Yes!

Food and Dining
Portions were not huge but certainly ample. The presentations were beautiful but it would have been nice to have something other than the pizza and pasta bar open after 10 PM.
Ship Quality
Loved the fish bar stools on the Lido deck!
Cabin / Stateroom
Service and Staff
The staff on the whole ship really made one feel welcome. An awesome staff I would say.
Oranjestad, Aruba
What a beautiful little city! Took a bus tour and loved every minute of it. Was surprised at all of the beautiful huge hotels out of town a bit.
Puerto Limon, Costa Rica
Went to the rainforest and had a great naturalist!!!!!! The bus ride was 2 hours to and from and that was kind of long but we were kept interested by looking for animals and different vegetation.
Cristobal, Panama
Went on a Lake Safari that was magnificent!
Don't Miss: Make sure to be up early to see going through the Canal!
Half Moon Cay, Bahamas (Private Island)
I loved swimming and walking on the sandy beach!
Don't Miss: The sand here is like no other I have ever seen! Touch it! Awesome!!!
Oh how colorful! Went to the beach snorkeling here! Fantastic. One needs water shoes as the beach was coral. Lovely!
