    From what I can see thier are self-serve laundries on board. Anyone know where they are located don't want to be near them. we are booked in a BB and are really thinking of upgrading after reading all the posts.
    thanks

    Everything I've read from the past 2 weeks indicates that there are NOT any self-serve laundries on board... where did you see to the contrary?

    I wouldn't put too much trust in their stuff. They also had cabin dinemsions posted, before HAL had published them and they were way off. They just take stuff from the last HAL ship they did, and cut-n-paste...

    Checked with HAL and they do not have self service laundries on "The Zuiderdam".

    One more bag to tote for carrying the dirty laundry home. Go figure.

    I sailed on Zuiderdam - NO self-service laundries.

    A number of so-called knowledgeable cruise info sites have incorrect or outdated data on them.

    Did you like the ship? We are sailing on January 4.

    Donna,

    Zuiderdam is a departure in design from the Statendam-class ships, as well as Rotterdam/Amsterdam and Volendam/Zaandam. She does not have as much of the art work that we are accustomed to seeing aboard the rest of the fleet, but she does indeed have some interesting pieces (for example, a beautiful Waterford crystal seahorse adorning the Atrium). I would say that her decor is more "upbeat" - geared very much towards attracting families and a younger clientele in the Caribbean.

    Cabins are nice - there IS a lack of drawer space, but you'll find shelves to compensate in the closets. Plenty of good-sized balconies - ideal for Caribbean ~~~~~~~~.

    Food and service were fine.

    Bon Voyage - enjoy your cruise!

    guess what I did I haven't told hubby yet but he'll be impressed I figure for the price it will be worth it all the perks and now I don't have to take the tux to the cleaners.

    so why are you called lady jag do you have a jag?

    No, but had one on order. Cancelled the order after it came in and I test drove it. Opted for a Lincoln LS instead (built on the Jag chassis). The name came from a friend that said I drive like Lady Something-or-other (couldn't remember her name) who raced Jags in Monte Carlo. The name "Lady Jag" came out of that and seemed to fit. :)
