Introducing ms Koningsdam

Koning means “king” in Dutch, and the name celebrates our majestic new ship, as well as paying homage to His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, first king of the Netherlands in over a century

Neptune Suite, Koningsdam

The first in a new, but still mid-sized Pinnacle class, 2,650-guest ms Koningsdam’s will blend a fresh, contemporary styling in harmony with the classic elegance Holland America Line has long been renowned for. Interiors by Adam D. Tihany, one of the world’s pre-eminent hospitality designers, will be inspired by the “architecture of music” – focusing on fluid curves, graceful lines and light-filled places.

Guests will have the opportunity to enjoy fine dining in several alternative restaurants including Sel de Mer, a new seafood brasserie offering a contemporary twist on timeless French classics; a new immersive farm-to-table dining experience complements our popular daytime cookery demonstrations in the Culinary Arts Centre; a re-designed casual Lido Market offers themed serving stations; There’s also a stunning main dining room; and favourites such as the Pinnacle Grill steakhouse, the Italian Canaletto restaurant and our Pan-Asian Tamarind. The ship will also feature Holland America Line’s first purpose-built staterooms for families as well as single staterooms among its 1,331 guest accommodations.

Entertainment has always been at the heart and soul of evenings onboard Holland America Line, and on ms Koningsdam that promise continues with Music Walk, three stages presenting a variety of live music nightly from the classical strings of Lincoln Center Stage, through 50 years of chart-topping hits played at Billboard Onboard to our ever popular BB Kings Blues Club within the two tier Queen’s lounge. The World Stage will be one of the most extraordinary theatres at sea, featuring a two storey, 270-degree high-definition LED screen that immerses audiences in an ever-changing backdrop of sight and sound.
