Glatt Kosher Cruise

10-Night Panama Canal Cruise
January 27, 2012

Scholar in Residence: Rabbi Aaron E. Glatt, MD
Singer: Avrumi Flam

HAL Zuiderdam

 
On this Panama Canal cruise, you'll not only tour one of humanity's greatest feats of engineering, but you will also witness tropical wonders and colorful cities unlike anything you've ever seen before. From snorkeling adventures in the gorgeous island of Aruba to the lush jungles of Costa Rica, the ports of call aboard your Holland America Zuiderdam Caribbean & Panama Canal cruise will offer some breathtaking natural balance to the man-made wonder of the Panama Canal.
 

HAL Zuiderdam

The ms Zuiderdam began her inaugural season in 2002 as the first ship in our Vista-class series. She embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system.

At the heart of the ms Zuiderdam, suspended in a three-story atrium, a Waterford Crystal Seahorse sets the mood for exquisite pieces of art to be seen throughout this elegant ship. Other notable pieces include a painting of Queen Beatrix by pop culture artist and icon, Andy Warhol, medallions by Frank Lloyd Wright, cast aluminum elevator doors inspired by the art deco work of the New York Chrysler Building, and a massive floral painting by Charles Ben. You will also discover a large collection of antiques and centuries-old paintings throughout the ship.
