Holland America Line
For over 140 years Holland America Line has transported people across the globe, once taking them from the Netherlands to their new lives in America, and today on traditional cruise holidays. Easily recognised by their navy blue hulls, the cruise line’s 14 mid to large size ships sail the seven continents and have a country-house-at-sea style. Enjoy exceptional dining as part of your full-board package as well as a range of excellent speciality restaurants which you can enjoy for a small additional charge.
Inspired by music and decorated with memorabilia signed by rock legends like Queen and the Rolling Stones, the Zaandam is elegant yet cool. She is one of Holland America’s smaller ships in terms of capacity with accommodation for 1432 guests but you won’t have to skimp on space, service or facilities. At America’s Test Kitchen you can watch cooking shows and join in with hands-on workshops, while sessions in partnership with BBC Earth bring to life the natural world with a series of films and concerts. For relaxing days on board, head to the Greenhouse Spa where facials, massages and a selection of other rejuvenating treatments are on offer. There are a range of dining venues from The Dining Room – the main restaurant – to the Pinnacle Grill, the ship’s fantastic speciality restaurant.
