With world-class entertainment, exceptional dining options, and ample opportunity for cultural enrichment, Holland America’s Koningsdam offers travelers a unique and sophisticated cruise experience. This light-filled ship is a haven for music aficionados, who are sure to enjoy Music Walk. This is a dedicated entertainment space that offers a sound to satisfy every musical taste. Passengers can relax at a classical recital at Lincoln Center Stage or catch a funky Memphis vibe at B.B. King’s Blues Club. At Billboard Onboard, twin pianos present 50 years of hits and take requests as well. In Koningsdam’s new Rolling Stone Rock Room, cruisers can immerse themselves in the history of rock while a live band plays iconic songs. When it comes to shows, entertainment and innovation blend seamlessly in the ship’s two-story World Stage. The World Stage features dazzling performances on a 270-degree wraparound LED screen.

For cruisers under 18, Holland America's Club HAL provides supervised, age-appropriate activities such as shipboard scavenger hunts, themed parties, crafts, and sports tournaments.

Koningsdam itineraries and departure ports

Koningsdam’s cruises range from a 4-day Pacific Coastal sailing that sails from San Diego to Vancouver to an epic 48-day Voyage of the Americas, which leaves from Fort Lauderdale and voyages along the entire coast of South America and the western shore of the United States before ending in Vancouver. During the summer and early fall, Koningsdam offers a variety of Mediterranean cruises with ports of call varying with the length of the trip. The ship also offers cruises to the Mexican Riviera, Hawaii, Alaska, and the Caribbean.

If you go to the spa be sure to bring your own slippers as they are not provided as they were on the other ships. Not sure if this is a fleet wide policy now or just on the Koningsdam? Also the lockers in the dressing room didn't lock either. They were all out of order.

Be sure to visit the Grand Dutch Cafe for delicious treats that are complimentary.

The best meatball sandwich I've ever had in the deli on deck 10, and I was told their pizza was outstanding.
