How true is the saying that you want to be in the middle of the ship? Will we be smoke out or vibrated to death?
My family and I have sailed the Zuiderdam twice and am booked for the sister ship Oosterdam and Zuiderdam for a third time. HA is a wonderful cruise line and the activities are the type my family very much enjoyes. That said, We have dined the early upper level seating on each cruise. The location is aft deck 4 and I must admit the vibrations from the powerful engines are evident. I believe on 5 you will experience the same. If it would not be too late, I personally would consider moving forward if you can. In addition being in the rear of the ship you will find yourself doing a greater amount of walking toward the front for the Queens lounge, casino and theater. Once again, let me say again, HA, especially the Zuiderdam has been our favorite cruise experience. I hope Julie Barr is on board as she is one of the warmest and most entertaining people we have met at sea. If you have any additional questions regarding the Zuiderdam, send me a message.
