Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
During this cruise we have seen several sites of Mexico which makes it an attractive itinerary to sail on. Finally, it was time to do some shopping. We have seen the contrasts of the ports of call in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta is very modern. A quick walk from the ship is a huge shopping mall — and when I say that Starbucks is also there, most readers will know what shops can be found there.
At night we experienced for us a new way of dining: The Canaletto restaurant. And what an experience this was. The best Italian food is served making it like a little Italy on the high seas. It’s how Holland America Line makes the dining experiences on its ships the best on the high seas.
Thanks to Dwi, the manager of Zaandam’s Canaletto, for the good time and good food we had.
Than it was time to go to the ship’s theatre to see the Indonesian Crew Show. We have visited them all on our cruises, and again it was a welcome ending to a wonderful day on board Zaandam.
