Holland America Koningsdam

Holland America Koningsdam


The first of Holland America Line’s Pinnacle-class ships, the Koningsdam's design was inspired by music. The interior spaces feature smooth lines, lots of light and spacious gathering places with ocean vistas. Everywhere you turn, you'll see prints, paintings and sculptures of pop stars, musicians and instruments. The two-story World Stage theater provides a sparkling showcase for dance and music performances, and the entertainment complex called Music Walk™ gives guests a place to go and enjoy music of all kinds, from classical to jazz to rock. 

The Koningsdam, launched in 2016, carries 2,650 guests with a crew of 1,036. With its sister ship, the Nieuw Statendam, the two Pinnacle Class ships are the largest of the Holland America fleet with twelve enclosed passenger decks. These are the biggest, most technologically advanced and most luxurious Holland America Line ships ever built. A third Pinnacle Class ship, as yet unnamed, is planned for 2021.

From a winter and spring schedule departing Fort Lauderdale to a spring Atlantic crossing, the Koningsdam switches seamlessly from Caribbean to Mediterranean cruises. Other departure ports on its schedule include Rome and Amsterdam, with Northern European and Baltic Sea offerings.

Entertainment & Activities

World Stage on HAL Koningsdam

One of Koningsdam's exciting new venues is Blend, an activity where guests can taste a number of wines from Chateau Ste. Michelle, the oldest winery in Washington State, and pick a few favorites to blend. The result is a personalized bottle of mixed wines with a self-designed label. Along the same line, a tradition aboard HAL ships is cooking demos and cocktail classes at the Culinary Arts Center (which turns into a dinner venue at night). Through a partnership with celebrity chefs at America's Test Kitchen, passengers can attend cooking seminars and learn how to make gourmet dishes at home.

In the evening, the 270-degree wraparound screen of the World Stage presents shows that are a mix of music, dancing and movies. The onboard dancers and musicians put on Broadway-style productions. One highlight not to miss is the BBC production, "The Frozen Planet," which is accompanied by a special score played by a live orchestra. Other performances include comedy and magic.

For music after the evening meal, guests wander over to the Music Walk just outside the main dining room. The B.B. King's All Stars play three times a night in the Queen's Lounge with a selection classic blues. For dueling pianos, there's the Billboard Onboard where two pianists play popular favorites and lead sing-alongs.

For the more active guests, there are also ping-pong tournaments, scavenger hunts, soccer shootouts, basketball tournaments and dance classes. Additional excitement can be found on deck 3, where the casino offers a selection of slot machines and gaming tables, as well as regular tournaments such as Texas Hold 'em.
