Cruise Diary: Feb. 6, San Diego’s Waterfront

Dear Bloggers:

We are happy to be back on board of a Holland America Line ship. This time Zaandam for a cruise from san Diego to Mexican Riviera.

Before we boarded Zaandam we visited the San Diego Maritime Museum, which is situated only two minutes from the cruise terminal. It’s a total floating museum, which means that all the museum stock will be found on the historic museum ships.

You can spend a day to see all of it, but we had to do a visit for only two hours because Zaandam was waiting for us.
We are used to a very smoothly operated check-in for Holland America ships. No exception for San Diego — staff everywhere to show the right directions.

Within 20 minutes all formalities were fulfilled and we entered Zaandam, which will be our home for 11 days.
