Catering to Christian guests, our ship, the mid-size ms Zaandam of Holland America Line, had all of its bars and casinos closed for the duration of the cruise. After a mandatory life boat drill and safety briefing, we set sail at 4 p.m. on Friday.
That afternoon and evening, as well as the entire day Saturday, was spent at sea. The weather was overcast and cold. A perfect time to investigate the ship and learn our way around.
