Holland America Line – Koningsdam

Holland America Line has consistently been among the highest-rated cruiseships in the world. The themes of this ship was music, as can be seen throughout the ships architecture, interior design and displays of art. Koningsdam has been featured in multiple magazines with its luxurious feeling and combination of the old and the new. She is the leader of HAL’s Pinnacle class and her godmother is Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands.

YSA DESIGN has designed key areas like the stairs and lift lobbies, giving the tone of the ship. The huge double deck Magrodome combines sun, pool, dining and entertainment over two levels. A truly innovative pool and Jacuzzi design within an elegant frame. The Main Lounge with central stage and its giant surround LED wall has already changed the ideas of entertainment in the cruise business. This 675 seat theatre gives you the feeling of a club show, surprisingly intimate. The open decks are designed to avoid the feeling of being onboard a ship with several thousand guests. There is a multitude of spaces with an intimate character. The Observation Lounge with its eclectic design also breaks down this important space into more private zones. The Tamarind restaurant is another signature area, benefiting from the stunning view aft overlooking the Aft pool and the wake of the ship. The SPA with its unique spa pool with a rain curtain for more privacy, sculpture park, seaview saunas and horizontal shower, will set new standards in wellbeing. Concierge Lounge and Club HAL are two other areas that contribute to the HAL brand.
