Hosted by Johnathan Rogers, Koningsdam’s inaugural cruise director, the video, “Countdown to Koningsdam Episode 4,” features Holland America Line’s Deputy Director of Interior Design My Nguyen, who takes guests inside the ship’s accommodations, including the new family and single staterooms debuting on board. New to Holland America Line ships are Koningsdam’s 12 single ocean-view staterooms and 32 family staterooms, accommodating up to five guests each.
Orlando Ashford, Holland America Line’s president said:
“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 is currently in the final stages of fitting out the interiors at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard. Just recently the ship completed sea trials and now it’s almost ready for delivery to Holland America Line in April. The vessel naming ceremony will take place on May 20 in Rotterdam, Netherlands. ms Koningsdam is 99,500 gross tons and will carry 2,650 passengers at double occupancy.
