The mid-sized prize

With her spacious and luxury accommodations, MS Zaandam is a mid-sized ship with your comfort first and foremost, and many of her staterooms have verandas for your private enjoyment.

A musical cruise

The theme onboard MS Zaandam is music, and the atmosphere doesn't disappoint. Art and memorabilia representing musical genres from across the spectrum grace MS Zaandam. There is an array of instruments played by your musical heroes, such as guitars signed by The Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Queen and Eric Clapton. Even the politicians get a corner with Bill Clinton's saxophone also making an appearance. Once you soak up the pop music history, plug in an iPod and take a self-guided tour of the complete Zaandam art collection.

Then there's the magnificent three-story atrium, which reveals itself as a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ, and draws inspiration from the traditional barrel organs still found today in the cities of The Netherlands.
