6 Reasons To Sail Onboard Holland America Line's Koningsdam

Cruise lines,

Launched in 2016 it's the largest, most technologically advanced and most luxurious Holland America Line ship ever built. Ms Koningsdam combines 21st century elegance, nautical tradition and signature service. Featuring sensational dining options, an abundance of world-class entertainment and stunning interior designs, this ship is a true destination itself. With so much to be explored and appreciated on board, here are just 6 spectacular reasons why Koningsdam is our Ship of the Week and should be yours too…

1. Be impressed with exceptional dining experiences

Being a five-star cruise line, it’s natural to have high expectations when it comes to experiences with food on board. However, to say the dining surpassed our expectations would be an understatement. From the very first experience with the Lido Market buffet during our first lunch on board, the bar had been set and we knew there was so much more to come. I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a sophisticated and wide-ranged buffet before. Offering cuisines from all over the world with five themed stations to choose from you could easily spend hours up there. (HAL’s signature bread and butter pudding in the dessert station is a MUST try!) For something more sophisticated there are stunning premium venues such as Sel de Mer, a delectable French seafood eatery – and our personal favourite on Deck 10, the sublime Tamarind. A Pan-Asian restaurant whose all-round inspiration has been noticeably taken from the Far East. With striking Asian aromas and sensational service from start to finish, it’s a truly memorable experience. We could have eaten every item on the menu - but we highly recommend the soft-shell crab appetizer, and the lobster and king prawn sushi.
