Billboard 100 piano bar was our favorite nightly entertainment! The Rolling Stones and BB King clubs were so much fun too with talented musicians and singers in all the clubs. the main stage had excellent shows also and we enjoyed it every night. I just wish show time was a little later!

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was spacious with alot room in the wardrobes and to unpack for the 22 days. Loved the large TV where we watched movies and TV shows when we wanted to. The balcony was private and we sat on it every evening and morning for coffee. Loved it!

Ship tip

Koningsdam is a beautiful, clean and new ship. If you just want to relax at the pools when you're at sea, it was wonderful. There were activities that we chose not to do. The sports court was fun to play pickle ball and the promenade deck 3 was awesome to walk on days at sea.
