Koning means “king” in Dutch, and the name celebrates our majestic new ship, as well as paying
homage to His Majesty King Willem-Alexander, first king of the Netherlands in over a century.
The first in a new, but still mid-sized Pinnacle class, 2,650-guest ms Koningsdam’s will blend a fresh,
contemporary styling in harmony with HAL’s classic elegance. Interiors by Adam D. Tihany, one of the
world’s pre-eminent hospitality designers, will be inspired by the “architecture of music” – focusing
on fluid curves, graceful lines and light-filled places.
The ship’s increased size will mean exciting public spaces, venues and some soon-to-be-announced
innovative new features.
The newest ship of any major cruise line to sail in Europe in 2016, Ms Koningsdam will spend the
first eleven weeks of her premier season exploring some of the most iconic gems of the
Mediterranean, offering itineraries that range from 7 to 24 days, including an array of leisurely
Collectors’ Voyages for guests who wish to stay longer and explore more!
