First Time with Holland AmericaByon 14 March 2018Holland America Line | MS Zaandam Reviews

WowByon 15 December 2015Holland America Line | MS Zaandam Reviews
The ship was ok. Not fantastic and quite old. Friendly and small. The trip was a definite wow. Scenery to die for. Cities to wander. People to meet. Chile was vibrant and friendly with plenty to see. Argentina was wonderful. The cities are great. We are both past the retirement age but we loved it. So much to see and very different from a normal scenic holiday.
