Holland America Line Catering to Families and Solo Cruisers
When the new ms Koningsdam débuts in 2016, the new fleet addition for Holland America Line will feature the cruise line’s first-ever purpose-built staterooms for families and singles amongst its 1,331 guest accommodations.
Holland America Line have been taking onboard customer feedback when it comes to designing the staterooms onboard ms Koningsdam, and they are taking the opportunity to better serve families and solo cruisers who choose to travel with them.
The new ship will feature 32 new specially designed family oceanview staterooms that have two bathrooms and accommodation for five people. Many of the stateroom categories, such as Neptune, Signature and Vista, will also be available in a wider range of sizes and different configurations that will also cater better to families cruising on board. There will also be 12 single oceanview staterooms available on the forward Main Deck.
Holland America Line has always been well known for their well-appointed staterooms, but with ms Koningsdam they have taken their accommodations a step further, by including thoughtful details that improve functionality – like bedside USB ports and frameless glass shower doors, and adopting a colour palette that takes advantage of texture and quiet colours to achieve a feeling of serenity and luxuriousness in all stateroom and suite categories.
In addition to the family and single staterooms, ms Koningsdam will also feature a number of suite categories. The grand Pinnacle Suite will be larger and more luxurious than before, with a bedroom, a living room, a dining area, a dressing room and a private verandah with a whirlpool. There will be two Neptune Spa Suites and 43 Neptune Suites onboard, with Neptune and Pinnacle Suite guests getting access to an exclusive lounge and concierge service, a cocktail party with the ship’s officers, priority dining and seating requests, complimentary laundry and dry cleaning and other exclusive features.
In the lower Suite category, there will be 14 Signature Suites and 104 Vista Suites, which offer guests personalised stationary, oversized bath towels, fresh flowers, a pillow menu, mini-bar and one-touch phone concierge service.
Ms Koningsdam will offer the highest number of staterooms and suites with verandahs in the entire fleet, with 912 accommodations ranging from the Verandah to the Pinnacle Suite categories having private balconies.
