Escape to South America with a flight to Santiago, an exuberant city famed for the beautiful hilltop garden of Cerro Santa Lucía, grand architecture and Maipo Valley, one of Chile’s celebrated wine-producing regions. You’ll enjoy an overnight stay here before embarking MS Zaandam, a ship with a musical theme which offers spacious accommodation, a range of dining options and a huge selection of activities whether you want to pursue new interests or relax and rejuvenate.
You’ll sail first to Puerto Montt, the gateway to the majestic Andes Mountains and the Patagonian fjords. Discover this region’s natural beauty as you cruise through awe-inspiring channels and islands, past snow-capped peaks and blue-tinged glaciers. Keep your camera close to hand, for this area is filled with wildlife, from sea lions to dolphins, and seabirds that soar amidst the splendour. Punta Arenas awaits, a city known for its museums, colonial artefacts before you sail to Argentina’s Ushuaia, the ‘Land of Fire’, where mysterious leafy lenga forests hide red foxes and parakeets.
You’ll then cruise around wind-whipped Cape Horn, past granite cliffs and unusual rock formations, on your way to the Falkland Islands, home to the charming Rockhopper penguin.
Discover stunning architecture in Montevideo, before reaching Buenos Aires where you’ll enjoy an overnight stay in port. Upon disembarking you’ll be transferred to the spectacular Iguazu Falls region for a two night hotel stay. You’ll get up-close to the falls during a walking tour of both the Argentinean and Brazilian sides, revealing the diverse landscape and the cascading water. The adventure continues with a flight to Rio de Janeiro, where you’ll enjoy a further two night hotel stay. Here a tour unveils one of the most famous monuments in the world: the magnificent Christ the Redeemer, the perfect finale to your South America adventure.

You’ll be spoilt for choice for entertainment on board the Zaandam. Spectacular shows will dazzle you in the Mondriaan Show Lounge, the twinkling lights of the casino will tempt you to have a flutter, and you can have a boogie in the Crow’s Nest before calling it a night.
With Holland America’s famously friendly and attentive service, and a range of great fine dining options, it’s easy to see why the ms Zaandam continues to attract passengers who appreciate real cruising quality. You’ll find that all dining scenarios are covered - fine dining, pizzas, grilled and barbecued food, snacks and sandwiches.
Selected restaurants on many ships require reservations and may carry an additional charge.
The Zaandam’s cosy bars and lounges are a great place to meet for pre-dinner drinks or dance until late. Sip coffee in the Explorations Café during the day, and enjoy the late-night disco in the Crow’s Nest while enjoying the 270° views.
Designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort, the ms Zaandam has great spaces for leisure and activities. An excellent range of day and night time activities mean you’ll always find something interesting to entertain you whilst at sea, and if you want to relax, there’s plenty of opportunity for that, too.
Guests from between 3 and 17 can enjoy their own dedicated clubs with activities ranging from pizza making to storytelling for little ones, while teenagers can enjoy tech classes and teen-only nightclub events on certain ships.
