Day 6

Board Cruise Ship

The MS Koningsdam was launched in 2016, she carries forward all the tradition, nautical heritage, and signature service and style for which Holland America Line is known – while raising the bar for 21st century elegance.  At the heart of the ship, Koningsdam’s central atrium is pure visual drama.  Soaring 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.  Look up by day to see wispy cirrus clouds floating overhead.  By evening, the atrium takes on dramatic lighting hues or reflects the clear constellations of the night sky.
