Holland America Line’s newest ship, the ms Koningsdam, wrapped up her inaugural Caribbean season this past weekend. On Sunday, the 2,650-guest ship left her Caribbean home of Port Everglades for Rome, to spend the summer months in Europe. On the 14-night voyage, she’ll make a call in Portugal and two calls in Spain – arriving Rome on April 15.
ms Koningsdam will spend the summer doing cruises in Northern Europe and the Mediterranean. The ship will reposition back to the Caribbean in October during a 15-night transatlantic crossing.
The ship debuted a lot of the cruise line’s newest culinary features like Sel de Mer, Culinary Arts Center dining experience, the Grand Dutch Cafe, and Blend, the hands-on wine blending area.
Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, christened the new ship at a ceremony in Rotterdam, last May.
