Sailing Dates:

Zuiderdam

The first ship in our Vista-class series, Zuiderdam began her inaugural season in 2002, and was renovated in 2015 to include new staterooms and dining venues. She embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system.

Recently refurbished Zuiderdam now has 25 new staterooms and a popular new dining venue, offering more cruise opportunities and options. The Dive-In at the Terrace Grill features an outdoor bistro-style grill by the Lido pool, offering signature burgers, hot dogs and fries. Other Zuiderdam enhancements include an updated dining room, Neptune Lounge, Greenhouse Spa and Canaletto restaurant.

At the heart of Zuiderdam, suspended in a three-story atrium, a Waterford Crystal Seahorse sets the mood for exquisite pieces of art to be seen throughout this elegant ship. Other notable pieces include a painting of Queen Beatrix by pop culture artist and icon, Andy Warhol, medallions by Frank Lloyd Wright, cast aluminum elevator doors inspired by the art deco work of the New York Chrysler Building, and a massive floral painting by Charles Ben. You will also discover a large collection of antiques and centuries-old paintings throughout the ship.

Step aboard Zuiderdam as she sails the Panama Canal, the Caribbean, and the beautiful Pacific Coast.
