One of the aft stairways also has a saxophone signed by former United States President Bill Clinton.

MS Zaandam was christened by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, in May 2000.

Several earlier vessels also bear the name Zaandam: A single-funnel steam ship known as SS Zaandam (1882–1897) and MS Zaandam (1938–1942). The latter was torpedoed by German submarine U-174 and sank.

Current Cruises

Zaandam sails out of Alaska during the summer and during the winter sails Mexico and Hawaii. In December and January, the Zaandam cruises the Antarctic and South America.
