Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president said:

“The Dining Room is the heart of the culinary experience onboard, and this new ‘Countdown to Koningsdam’ video enables us to show fans the new innovations and ideas we’re introducing in this space. The restaurant is an impressive work of art, and it’s the perfect venue for our guests to enjoy fine dining with Holland America Line.”

The Dining Room was created by famed hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany and the dining hub will be modern and fit well with the ships design. With bright lights from plenty of windows and yellow colors it will be a fine place to dine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There will be a curved staircase connecting the two dining levels and sculptural champagne gold wine tower designed to appear folded and fluid in the centre of the room.

The 99,500 gross ton ms Koningsdam is currently under construction at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy. The ship will be delivered to Holland America this April so shipyard is now in the final stages of fitting out all the interior spaces. If you missed the last episode you can watch it here.
