ms Zuiderdam OVERVIEW

There’s nothing like a major makeover to bring a cruise ship up to snuff and deck her out with Holland America Line’s most popular new features. During a three-week redo in 2008, Holland America Line added 34 aft staterooms to ms Zuiderdam. Cushy bedding and flat-screen TVs were introduced in all staterooms. Also added were the elegant Pinnacle Bar, a Screening Room movie theater and the always-buzzing Explorations coffee stop and Internet café. The expanded shopping arcade was opened up, giving it a refreshing, airy feel.

The average age of guests is in the mid-50s and older, with a high percentage of loyal repeat cruisers. Most are American, and a few guests include children for multigenerational vacations. All announcements are in English.
