Holland America’s New Ship Is Where Traditional Meets Contemporary
Posted on Monday, February 27th, 2017 at 10:01 pm
Koningsdam—Holland America Line’s newest and largest ship—has a decidedly modern feel without sacrificing traditional cruise ship luxuries. Form follows function, so the Koningsdam succeeds in blending both familiar and fresh aesthetic aspects to create a luxurious experience.
Koningsdam differs from Holland America Line’s previous ships because it is light and spacious; pale woods and bright spaces of Koningsdam’s interior replace dark woods of earlier ships. Other changes include a lighter color scheme for towels, as well as a transition from oil paintings to black-and-white photographs. The addition of curved ribs to the ship reflects an appreciation for musical themes, a central aspect of Koningsdam’s appeal.
The ship also does not fall short on entertainment. Classical musicians of the Lincoln Center soothe, while Memphis-trained singers featured in the B.B. King Blues Club delight passengers. LED screens 2 stories high and 250 feet long ensure nobody misses the incredible live song-and-dance production.
Dining establishments complement the elegant design and spectacular entertainment of the Koningsdam. Upon request, passengers receive private bottles of quality wine from Chateau Ste. Michelle vineyards, Cold Creek, and Canoe Ridge Estate. Hands-on classes and demonstrations contribute to the urban feel of the ship. The Culinary Art Center presents five-course meals and unlimited wine. Between the amazing dining experience, incredible live entertainment, and intricate design of Koningsdam, the ship guarantees a comfortable and sophisticated ambiance to the satisfaction of its passengers.
