Typical Passengers

MS Zuiderdam is designed to appeal to a slightly younger and more family-oriented audience than some of HAL’s more traditional ships. There are loads of family facilities catering for kids, including the indoor/outdoor KidZone play area, WaveRunner dance club for teens, gaming room and cinema. The Club HAL program offers daily activities led by a spirited team of youth counsellors. 

Ship Amenities 

Although there are plenty of family-oriented spaces on MS Zuiderdam, adults of all ages will also find plenty of ways to pass the time. The fun starts outdoors, where there are two central swimming pools including a retractable glass dome for splashing in all seasons. Have a soak in one of the whirlpool tubs, conveniently located near the bar for a top-up on your drink! You can admire the view with a wander around the exterior promenade deck or jogging track, and visit the Casino to test your luck at the slot machines.  Get your bearings with a trip to the Crow’s Nest observation lounge, which also includes a library, lounge and Explorations internet café. Inside, the décor is quite attractive and brightly-coloured, with an interior atrium housing the main customer service desks. Here you’ll find a seahorse made from Waterford crystals – quite the fancy focal point! 

Cabin Amenities

From interior cabins to spacious suites, MS Zuiderdam offers accommodation across the full spectrum. Price grades will depend on the location and size of your cabin, with Penthouse Suites being the most luxurious option. Standard features in all cabins include flat-screen infotainment systems, personal safes, fresh fruit, evening turndown service, and complimentary toiletries in the private bathrooms. Suites also include private balconies, additional living spaces and exclusive concierge services. 

Dining Options

Dine in style onboard MS Zuiderdam, starting in its Vista Dining Room. This is the ship’s main restaurant, offering comforting classics for breakfast, lunch and dinner services. For something special, you can book a table at the Pinnacle Grill. This premium restaurant offers a menu inspired by the produce of the Pacific Northwest – think luscious cuts of salmon and fresh berries used in creative ways. Pinnacle also features hand-picked cuts of premium beef, prepared to order. When you’re feeling casual, visit the cheerful Lido Café buffet with its selection of counters. There are stations for salads, stir-fries, deli sandwiches, desserts and pizza, and at night part of the buffet transforms into the Canaletto Restaurant for family-friendly Italian fare. A poolside grill and coffee shop round out the options here. 


There are several bars and lounges to choose from on MS Zuiderdam, each with their own themes to explore. At night, visit the Vista Lounge to enjoy all the latest entertainment programming, from major cabaret shows to Vegas-style productions. There are three levels of seating to choose from as well as a bar and lounge on the ground level. Additional entertainment outlets include a movie theatre, casino and lecture rooms. 

Sports and Wellness

The Greenhouse Spa is the ship’s fitness and wellness complex. It’s quite spacious and airy, spanning two decks with its solarium and treatment rooms. Treat yourself to a visit to the thermal suite, which includes a Hammam, Laconium, Hydropool, and Chamomile Grotto. Walk away with a new hairstyle from the beauty salon, or indulge in a hot stone massage. The spa complex includes a well-equipped gym, featuring all the cardio and weight-lifting equipment you’d expect.

Our cabin was clean and in good repair and the steward was very efficient. We used the main dining room and there was never a wait to be seated and table service was good.
