Canadian Rail Adventure & Maritimes Cruise


The ms Zaandam reflects a graceful combination of classic and state-of-the-art features found on board both the ms Rotterdam flagship and the Statendam-class vessels.Designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, ms Zaandam is a prize in the mid-size ship category.


Holland America ms Zaandam's predominant theme is music and will be featured in the ship's artwork and interior design elements including a magnificent Baroque-style Dutch band organ playing in the atrium. 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.
