A NEW SHIP,  THE MS KONINGSDAM!

A new ship, the Koningsdam, debuts April 8, 2016 and is the first Pinnacle Class ship and will have many special features. How about blending your own wine aboard ship? Holland America and Chateau Ste. Michelle, the oldest and most recognized winery in the state of Washington, created BLEND so you can enjoy your special wine at dinner. You’ll be able to choose from 5 different barrels of red wine and learn about wine from the onboard wine expert. Another feature on the Koningsdam is the microgreens garden. You’ll be able to enjoy fresh microgreens grown onboard, thanks to a partnership of Holland America and Koppert Cress, a Dutch award-winning microgreen specialist, at your farm-to-table dinner in the Culinary Arts Center. The ms Koningsdam will sail this year throughout Europe and then spend time in the Caribbean.
