Possessing one of the highest ratios of space per person in the Holland America fleet, the 1,918-passenger Zuiderdam is a modern ship with innovative, luxurious features. Expanded spa facilities -- with 11 therapy rooms, hydrotherapy pool, sauna, steam and aromatherapy rooms -- pamper passengers in one of the cruise line's most spacious spas. Elevators -- two are glass-enclosed with panoramic ocean views -- give access to 11 passenger decks, including a covered promenade that encircles the entire vessel. One of the most unique features is the Culinary Arts Center, a state-of-the-art show kitchen with plasma video screens and cooking display counters -- a must-see for food and wine enthusiasts.

Eighty-five percent of staterooms enjoy ocean views, and eighty percent of those have private balconies. Each stateroom is fitted with a data port for Web access, and there also is an Internet center and library. When it comes to dining, the Zuiderdam offers a variety of options: gourmet meals in the two-tiered main dining room, fine Italian dining at the Canaletto restaurant and casual fare at the Lido restaurant and Terrace Grill. Room service also is available at no additional cost. Entertainment is equally varied, with duty-free shops, casino, nightclubs and lounges, a sports deck, plus thrilling productions in the Vista Lounge showroom. Kidzone and Waverunner rooms provide younger passengers (ages 5-17) with their own places for supervised programs and hanging out.
