The musically themed ms Zaandam offers its 1,440 guests a unique shipboard atmosphere. Inspired by the world’s great music, artifacts and memorabilia from across the pantheon of musical genres decorate the ship, such as guitars signed by the Rolling Stones and other relics of legendary musicians. At the heart of the ms Zaandam, in a soaring three-story atrium, guests revel at a Baroque-style Dutch pipe organ, inspired by the traditional barrel organs still found on the streets of The Netherlands.
