Launched in 2000 and refreshed in 2015 the MS Zaandam was designed to carry fewer guests while providing more open space and stateroom comfort. Once onboard this midsized ship it’s hard to miss the musical theme. Instruments such as Bill Clintons saxophone and signed guitars from Queen, Iggy Pop, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones can be seen throughout the ship. In the atrium, you’ll find a Baroque style Dutch pipe organ.
