The musically themed ms Zaandam has always offered guests a unique onboard atmosphere. Her décor includes artifacts and memorabilia representing various musical genres - from a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ in the atrium, to guitars signed by rock icons The Rolling Stones.

These guest-pleasing upgrades provide state-of-the-art facilities and public areas, and unparalleled new services and amenities.
