Cruise Lines & Ships

Featured Ship: ms Statendam


The ms Statendam features a theme of Dutch life and exploration, with more than $2 million worth of art and artifacts beautifully displayed throughout the ship. The Van Gogh Theater is a work of art in itself, commemorating Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh's paintings "The Starry Night" and "Irises."

As the winner of 18 consecutive "Best Overall Cruise Value" awards from the World Ocean and Cruise Liner Society, and consistently among the highest-rated premium cruise lines year after year in Conde Nast Traveler's "Readers' Choice Awards" and Travel + Leisure magazine's, "World's Best" awards, Holland America Line is known for gracious and attentive service. Its ships have one of the highest staff-members-to-guest ratios. Spacious staterooms average 25 percent larger and verandahs twice as large as those on other lines' ships. Dining choices include formal elegance, intimate specialty dining, casual fare and complimentary 24-hour room service.

Holland America Line's ongoing Signature of Excellence initiative has invested more than $540 million in shipboard enhancements including the Culinary Arts Center presented by Food & Wine magazine "a state-of-the-art onboard show kitchen" where more than 60 celebrated guest chefs and culinary experts provide cooking demonstrations and classes, Explorations Café powered by the New York Times, teens-only activity areas, new stateroom amenities including flat-panel TVs and plush-top Mariner’s Dream Beds.

With the introduction of the 2,104 passenger ms Eurodam in June, 2008, Holland America Line’s fleet grew to 14 ships, offering nearly 500 cruises from more than 25 home ports. Itineraries range from two to 108 days, visit all seven continents and all of Travel + Leisure magazine’s "Top 25 Cruise Destinations." A 15th ship, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, joined the fleet in July 2010.
