Koningsdam is first of her class

Launched in 2016, MS Koningsdam carries forward the tradition, nautical heritage, and signature service and style for which Holland America Line is known – while raising the bar for 21st-century elegance. The 2,650-guest Koningsdam is the first of her class, ushering in a new era of Pinnacle-class cruising. Her name’s roots, like the ship itself, are a mix of something contemporary and something classic: ‘Koning’ means king in Dutch – and is a salute to King Willem-Alexander, the Netherland’s first king in more than 100 years.

Expect Light-filled spaces, fluid curves and beautiful architectural elements inspired by music. At the heart of the ship, the Holland America Koningsdam’s central atrium soars three decks high, the space is graced by an airy stainless steel sculpture that evokes the feeling of a classical quartet, with strings, arches, and bows. The atrium is capped by a ceiling that serves as a backdrop for subtly changing high-definition projections of wispy cirrus clouds, dramatic hues or clear constellations of the night sky…


Holland America Line's graceful, mid-sized ships are known for their generous amount of personal space. All staterooms on the MS Koningsdam feature luxurious, quilted pillow top mattresses, fine linens and towels, premium massage showerheads and Elemis Aromapure bath products.
