MS Koningsdam Review

Written By:
Ian Warren
May 31, 2016

MS Koningsdam, which entered service in April 2016, is the largest ship in the Holland America Line (aka HAL) fleet, and is the first Pinnacle Class ship. At 99,500 gross tons, she is classed as mid-sized and has 1,331 staterooms, or cabins, and carries 2,650 passengers at standard occupancy. This figure would increase as the 3-berth and 4-berth cabins are utilised. There are 1,036 crew members onboard to take good care of the passengers.

I was invited by Holland America Line to go and visit MS Koningsdam while she was in the port of Amsterdam, on a changeover day in June 2016. I was impressed with the look of the ship from the outside, and even more so when I got inside. It was nice to see so much of the ship looking bright and airy, especially the 2-deck high main dining room, with its massive wine storage rack at one end. There are a lot of great public rooms, including one of the best looking show theatres I have seen on a ship. I was also impressed by the generous size of both the cabins and the suites.

Accommodation

The 1,331 suites and cabins are spread across 9 categories and 35 grades, from a standard inside cabin of c175 sq ft, up to the Pinnacle Suite which is c1,290 sq ft including a private verandah (or balcony). There are a number of grades of suites, balcony cabins, ocean view (outside) cabins, and interior (inside) cabins. A total of 27 suites and cabins are wheelchair accessible. I feel that the following 2 categories are worth highlighting, as they are both new: –
