My wife, myself, and several friends are sailing on the Zaandam this coming March. We have sailed on HAL before and know to expect excellent service and a classical cruise experience. Our friends, however, have only sailed on RCI (Enchantment of the Seas) and NCL (Norway). They have voiced a concern recently that they like to hear Calypso music played by the pool. I know that the Westerdam had a steel drum band that played daily at the Lido pool, but does anyone know how often and how long they might play on the Zaandam? In addition, what other type of music could they expect to hear while lounging in total luxury. To be honest, I tended to avoid loud places on the Westerdam, so I cannot provide them the details they want. In addition, what types of games are usually played at the Lido pool area. Our friends are not "party animals", but I think they are concerned that they won't have fun.
