Question Beverages

I am going on Holland America Zuiderdaam in June. I am wondering what beverages are included. Is there a charge for all drinks even if they are non alcoholic?

Your agent can help you with this.

But coffee, tea (both hot and cold), milk, and juices are included in your cruise.

You have to pay for all bottled water, alcohol, specialty coffees (like espresso), and sodas.

Hope this helps.

Yes that helps. I didn't use an agent, I booked myself online and small details like this are not discussed.

NEVER book a cruise online or through the cruise line. Best to book with an agent because if you have any questions or problems, they can be invaluable. Plus, the price they charge is exactly the same and they charge nothing for their services, so it makes sense to utilize their expertise. They will make sure you got a good cabin at the best price, answer all of your questions, discuss what to do and what not to do in ports, etc, etc. But the main thing is they represent you so they are there when you need them.

Okay, enough of that.

There's alot of wonderful people on this forum with a wealth of information to offer, so don't hesitate to post any questions you may have.

Keep in mind as well, there will be some soft drinks/water in your cabin, mini fridge that you will be charged for too if you should drink them....

When I was on the Zuiderdam in 2010 they served iced tea at no charge.
