My wife and I took a November 2007 cruise on the Zuiderdam and thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and ship.  We were disappointed with our latest cruise on this ship.  Since the ship had a recent refurbishment we felt that our timing was right.  Wrong.  Whatever was refurbished was not evident to my eye.  The rooms apparently were not on the refurbishment list.  Floor tile, tub and mirror were all worn and needed replacement or repair.  Cleanliness in some of the card rooms was a problem.  The ship just looked worn.  Personnel were great.  There was a problem with one of the six tenders being used at Grand Cayman. It had to be brought back aboard.  Didn't see anyone working on it so it might not have been serious.  Hope not as this was a lifeboat also.  Food ok but nothing to write home about.
