Antarctic stunner

Holland America Line | MS Zaandam Reviews

The ship sailed from Buenos Aires to San Antonio Santiago via Cape Horn. We were blessed with amazing weather calm and fairly warm. We were able to get to the Falklands and around Cape Horn without any rough seas. It’s a small ship but very compact. Food was excellent. Choice in the main restaurant and lido was fantastic. Afternoon teas with silver service was a bonus. The onboard cruise /port information was very good. Getting...

First Time with Holland America

Holland America Line | MS Zaandam Reviews

We recently travelled on the Zaandam from Buenos Aires to Rio and back again on the ‘Colours of Brazil’ cruise.

We also had fine weather throughout the cruise, which is unusual for Alaska,...

Wow
By Nicholls on 15 December 2015
Holland 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.
