For Christmas mid week cruise, Eastern Car. our choices are Sun Princess or Zuiderdam. Itineraries are virtually identical. We're a couple in our mid 50's no kids with us. Have sailed Princess and Holland once before, but not on these type ships. Any advice would be appreciated.
I have been on the Ocean Princess which is a Sun Class ship and the Zuiderdam.
I enjoy both Princess and Hal.
Balconies and cabin size and layout are a priority for me.
The Sun Class outside cabins are around 135 sq ft plus about a 40 sq ft balcony.
The Zuiderdam has about a 200 sq ft cabin with sofa area and a 40+ sq ft balcony or larger.
With this in mind the Zuiderdam wins hands down.
65+ cruises on over 10 cruiselines.
