Tradition and Technology
The past is what drives ms Koningsdam forward. Melding a storied heritage with modern design insights from world-class designer Adam D. Tihany and the legendary architect Bjørn Storbraaten, Holland America’s ship is a testament to both men’s talents. Vintage flourishes have been viewed through a modern lens, pairing fluid curves and clean, elegant lines with a contemporary edge, creating an atmosphere that’s both welcoming and impressive.
Taking inspiration from tradition and technology alike, the focal point of the ship’s architectural skill is undoubtedly its central atrium. Three storeys high, this dramatic structure takes cues from the look of a classical quartet, ending with a ceiling in which high-definition images are projected onto. Through the day, clouds playfully pass by, changing into the crystalline constellations of the sky as night begins.
Well known for its entertainment, Ms Koningsdam provides guests with a bevy of night-time treats, from the soulful sounds of BB King’s Blues Club to Lincoln Center Stage’s sublime chamber music performances. The onboard Casino lets guests try their hand at blackjack and slot machines, while a poolside movie is perfect for guests looking for something a little bit more relaxed.
With myriad dining options onboard, Ms Koningsdam invites its guests to savour the flavours of the world’s cuisine. Flexible and varied, you could be enjoying a poolside snack and then dining on superb seafood at Sel De Mer.
From al fresco eats to Tamarind’s eclectic Far East treats, foodies are in store for an extensive area of culinary delights. Share the good times with friends and family at Canaletto, an authentic Italian venue that specialises in small plates or book a table at Pinnacle Grill, an intimate, exclusive eatery that celebrates the finest fare America has to offer, from Alaskan king salmon to superb beef from Washington State’s Double R Ranch.
Somewhere to rest, relax and recharge, your room is your own private retreat, and whether it’s an interior cabin or a Pinnacle Suite, comfort, quiet and space come as standard. Light and open, modern flourishes such as bedside USB ports and frameless shower glass doors match perfectly with its mannered décor, creating an ambience that’s inviting as it is relaxing.
Many come with ocean views and a verandah, but for those looking for something extra special, the Neptune and Pinnacle Suites provide guests with abundant space and luxury as well as access to the Neptune Lounge.
