Summary

From April to October of 2019 and 2020, Zaandam will be exploring the landscapes and scenery of Canada and New England.  Seven night cruises from Boston to Montreal (or vice versa) will introduce you to Bar Harbor, Halifax, Sydney, Charlottetown and Quebec City.

As the weather warms in the southern hemisphere, Zaandam heads to the South American continent.  A number of Zaandam‘s itinerary loop under the continent via Cape Horn, allowing you to experience the scenery and wildlife that avails the Antarctic circle.  If Antarctica is part of your wish list, make sure to check out Zaandam‘s cruises that cruise the Antarctic Circle (weather permitting).

Designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, Zaandam is a prize in the mid-size ship category. On the musically themed Zaandam, you’ll find musical instruments such as Bill Clinton’s saxophone and signed guitars from Queen, Iggy Pop, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones throughout the ship. In her soaring three-story atrium: a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ, inspired by the traditional barrel organs still found on the streets of The Netherlands.
