Zaandam Organized Activities, Lectures & Games
The Zaandam features a variety of activities throughout the cruise to keep you busy and entertained. The "Explorer" series of lectures takes you through the culture and tradition about upcoming ports of call. Other activities include, wine tasting classes, culinary arts classes, snowball jackpot bingo, Susan G. Komen Walkathon, trivia contests, and a whole host of games that the staff of Holland America has dreamt up over the many decades they have been sailing the seas. Yes, some of the "lectures" do have a retail / infomercial feel to them (how to buy jewels, wine pairings, which shore excursions we offer, etc.).
The best way to find out what is going on for the day is to read the Daily Program.
