Another of David’s ship spotting videos. This is the H&A ship Zuiderdam being pulled into the Tyne by a Tug which is unusual. This is a Vista Class ship, the name used because of the extensive use of glass within the ship. It is the sister ship to three other ships and the four names relate to the four main directions of the compass. MS Oosterdam, MS Noordam and MS Westerdam. She is the same size and dimensions as the Spirit Class ships and similar to Cunard’s Queen Victoria. At just under 300 meters she cruises comfortably at 22 knots and has 11/15 passenger decks. The ship looks like she is surrounded by balconies because she is, eighty-five percent of her staterooms have ocean views and sixty-seven percent have verandahs. We can now offer the deals available on some Holland & America ships for adult cruises. She carries just under 2000 Guests and is often used by British cruisers.
