The 2nd vessel in the series, Oosterdam, can assure the passengers that the path to the appropriate balance of subtlety and exuberance is a swinging ticker, not a straight arrow trajectory. On Oosterdam cruise ship, the bones of a typical Holland America interior are draped in a much bolder color palette than the one in the past. Big, light red, orange and gold hues abound in the public rooms, most obviously in the 3-deck tall Vista Show Lounge. Blue and aquamarine carpets secure a colorful counterpoint through the cruise liner. But, some elements are, to passengers' eye, not youthful, but simply tacky, as for instance, the cast plaster benches with colored pseudo-classical sculpted backs and gold lame pillows which grace the midships major lift lobbies, together with false columns and escutcheons spray-painted in gold.

In 2009, Oosterdam cruise ship went through a "Signature of Excellence" dry dock. Constructive changes included the addition of thirty-four new cabins and the development of a new Pinnacle Bar, accessible both as a pre-prandial watering gap for those dining in that Holland America signature alternative dining facilities, and, for the 1st time, to all other cruisers as well. There were also added a new library-cum-coffee bar-cum Internet Café, a new alternative Italian restaurant, new intimate screening room, and dedicated enrichment amenities.
