travel42 Cruise Ship Review: Holland America Line Zuiderdam

Zuiderdam travel42 Professional Ship Review

Holland America's Zuiderdam made its debut at the end of 2002. It is a sister to the Oosterdam, which came out in 2003, the Westerdam, which entered service in 2004, and the Noordam from 2006.

Built at Fincantieri in Italy, Zuiderdam was the first of Holland America's Vista-class ships. It was the first ship to offer data ports in every stateroom for emailing and internet access. Zuiderdam's decor is jazzier than previous Holland America ships.
