I have to disagree with many of the cruise travelers of ms Zuiderdam. I absolutely loved sailing the Zuiderdam. Although this was my first cruise, I feel that because of this ship, I cannot go on another cruise line if it is not with Holland America. From the moment that the porters took our suitcase to the moment we left the ship, it was just a wonderful experience. I traveled with a group of seventeen and it was just so much fun. Some comments that I have read are from older travelers who may not like to explore the ship or are just used to one way and do not want to change. I feel that because my group was so large, we always something to do and with someone. If one person wanted to go swimming while another wanted to go work out, it was just fine because we would always run into someone we knew. The guests as well as the workers were super friendly. Our room staff and wait staff knew us as Mr., Miss or Mrs. and the employees took their time to explain our questions and show us around. The ship was so spic and span- that one could eat from the floors. It was amazing how clean the ship was kept. The public restrooms were so clean that using the public restroom never grossed me out. It was just a wonderful ship and a wonderful experience. If someone had a problem with it, they truly are “scrooges” and just do not know how to have fun.
