Holland America Line debuted the 4th “Countdown to Koningsdam” video, detailing the ship’s staterooms and suites. The videos were created to share the excitement as Koningsdam nears her delivery in April 2016.
Hosted by Koningsdam’s cruise director, Johnathan Rogers, the video features Holland America’s Deputy Director of Interior Design My Nguyen. He takes guests inside the accommodations of the ship, including the new single and family staterooms debuting on board. HAL's president, Orlando Ashford, shared:
“We spent years developing and fine-tuning the design of the ship’s accommodations to ensure that our guests feel like they’re walking into a pampering and relaxing environment while they’re cruising on Koningsdam”. “We gathered feedback from guests and travel partners about upgrades and changes they’d like to see in our staterooms, and My and her team did a fantastic job implementing many of those ideas. From the color schemes to the functionality of the layout, Koningsdam’s accommodations are the perfect home away from home.”
MS Koningsdam will boast over 1,300 guest accommodations which received upgrades in both function and aesthetics. Four distinct color schemes identify the spa, suite, verandah, ocean-view and inside categories. Passengers will enjoy the redesigned headboards with electrical and USB outlets on both sides of the bed, as well as stone tops on nightstands and decks, improved lighting and more storage.
Koningsdam represents the new Pinnacle Class for Holland America Line. The ship will debut several innovative concepts, new public spaces and venues, while featuring popular amenities cruisers associate with the line. Guests will enjoy HAL’s first purpose-built single staterooms and staterooms for families, as well as fine dining in several alternative restaurants.
Onboard entertainment is taken to a new level with the Music Walk area featuring all music genres showcased in venues like Lincoln Center Stage, with nightly chamber music; Billboard Onboard, where live artists rock the crowd with top hits; and the B.B. King’s Blues Club in Queen’s Lounge, bringing the Memphis music to sea. With World Stage's 270-degree LED projection, new show-time concepts will immerse the audience in visual and sound effects.
