15 Day Kosher Cruise to South America!

The Zaandam Ship. Built in 2000 and refurbished in 2010, the Zaandam is a member of HAL’s Rotterdam or “R” class of cruise ships. She weighs approximately 62,000 tons, and accommodates about 1,400 passengers. Passengers will find the ship large enough to provide plenty of choices in onboard experiences, yet small enough to feel cozy and intimate

Designers chose “music” as Zaandam’s theme, and the ship features artifacts and memorabilia from a variety of musical genres. Musical instrument on display include Bill Clinton’s saxophone, and autographed guitars from Queen, Iggy Pop, Eric Clapton and the Rolling Stones.

Complimentary 24-hour room service is also available

Daytime Activities. The Zaandam features two pools (one indoor and one outdoor), plus two hot tubs and two kids’ pools. The Zaandam offers HAL’s Explorations activities program, where an experienced travel guide educates passengers about the culture, wildlife and history of the ports to be visited. A Digital Workshop, powered by Windows® – offers fun, free learning about digital photography, videos, scrapbooking, blogging and social networking. The Culinary Arts Center presents interactive gourmet cooking lessons taught by professional chefs. In addition to an Internet cafe, WI-FI is available throughout the ship.

Spa and Fitness. HAL’s Greenhouse Spa & Salon offers all of the healthy and relaxing treatments one would expect at an upscale spa including massages, facials, and body wraps. Their signature treatment is the Hot Stone Massage, which they describe as “Harnessing the properties of volcanic basalt stones, guests are bathed in warm water and anointed with spicy, sensual aromas of the Orient. Deep penetrating heat from the stones massages the body using traditional techniques to release muscular tension and balance the spirit.” The Greenhouse Retreat is a communal relaxation center that has an ambiance similar to a Turkish Bath. Different grottos and chambers release a variety of dry heat, steam and mists into the air with aromatherapy filled vapors. Relax on a heated ceramic lounge and allow the pressures of life to rinse away.

Tennis, basketball, and shuffleboard courts are available, as are a jogging track and ping-pong tables. A fully-equipped gym that features resistance and cardio equipment as well as regular fitness classes.

Nighttime Entertainment. Nightlife onboard the Statendam is elegant and plentiful. There are intimate, cabaret-style shows staged in the theater with professional performers. Mix is an innovative meeting place featuring three specialty venues: Champagne, for mid-day mimosas or anytime celebrations; Martinis, for Grey Goose cocktails and martini flights; and Spirits & Ales for microbrews, single malts and sports updates. Music and dancing in the various bars and lounges, a casino offering a variety of games when the ship is at sea. First-run movies are also shown in a theater setting.

Kids. The Zaandam offers a variety of supervised fun for kids.

For children aged 3-7, Club HAL® offers activities like pirate treasure hunts, hands-on pizza making, storytelling, “Little Artists” crafts, ice cream sundae parties and a farewell pajama party.

Teens and tweens ages 8-12 have even more options and can participated in Xbox and Wii tournaments, relay races, scavenger hunts, and karaoke disco parties. At this age, they can also become involved with the award-winning National Park Service Jr. Ranger Program in Alaska on Alaska cruises.

nrThe Kashrut is under the strict supervision of Rabbi Rothenberg of Vienna . He has spent many years developing the community Kosher list in Vienna for hundreds of food products sold in large retail chains throughout the Europe. This knowledge is very important and gives hotel operators in Europe the ability to bring local products and not need to import from Israel or the USA. His Kashrut experience has further expanded into the Kosher Cruises and he the Rav Hamachshir for Eddie’s Kosher Travel/Destinations Cruise packages.

Rabbi Rotenberg works throughout the year to obtain Kosher meat and poultry throughout Europe at the highest kosher level, at the best price. For every shechita Rabbi Rotenberg sends a special overseer on his behalf in order to ensure that the shipment of meat from the start will arrive at the hotel with the utmost supervision.

Rabbi Rottenberg currently serves as part time Rabbi of Savion community in Israel
