Awesome family bonding time!!

Sail Date: December 01, 2012

Reviewed: 4 years ago

Traveled As: Family (older children)

Room Type: Oceanview

Ship accommodations were nice. We were most impressed with the friendliness of the ship staff. Everyone worked hard to make this a most pleasant experience. We especially enjoyed the spa package we purchased that allowed our whole family access anytime to the thermal suite the entire week.

Pros: Service\, Food\, Magician\, Spa

Cons: Comedian

Recommends Zuiderdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
You would see crew working throughout the day cleaning the ship. Also\, they really emphasized the use of sanitizer to keep everyone healthy. The ship's layout was easy to navigate around.
Food and Dining
Top notch quality food in the dining room. My teenage boys are not fond of dressing up\, but found the dining room food to be worth the effort. Also\, we had open seating and only made reservations one night. The other nights we didn't and only had to wait to be seated one night which was on New Year's Eve. Open seating was not a problem.
Cabin / Stateroom
Size was small\, but to be expected. It did not affect our overall comfort. There was plenty of closet and drawer space and we didn't spend much time in the room.
Service and Staff
Absolutely wonderful!! They were great with keeping our room cleaned and providing fresh linens. Always enjoyed the chocolate mint at the end of the evening along with a special towel sculpture.
Over the top delivered with the Magician\, James Celian!! He was magnificent!! Can't say the same for the comedian. He was awful and that seemed to be the overwhelming response from the audience. The magician however was quite funny and should be getting the comedian's pay.
