MS Zuiderdam is a cruise ship owned and operated by Holland America Line. It is the first of the Vista class ships, so named for the extensive use of glass in their superstructure. It is sister to the Oosterdam, Westerdam, and the Noordam. The names of the four ships translate to the four directions of the compass in Dutch.

As with all Vista-class ships, eighty-five percent of her staterooms have ocean views and sixty-seven percent have verandahs. Her art collection carries a Venetian theme throughout the ship; the most dazzling features figures in the time of Carnival in Venice, created by Daniel Ogier. Here are some on-board photos of the ship and personal photos on board.
