ms Amsterdam - Ship Description

Amsterdam, a triumph of the shipbuilder's art, is the flagship of Holland America's five-star fleet. Combining grace and elegance with superior service and modern amenities, the ship offers award-winning entertainment, exceptional cuisine, and an amazing variety of activities for people of all ages. The ship also features an entire deck of spacious suites, each with a full verandah. The suites circle the private Neptune Lounge, complete with concierge services.

On deck, you'll find indoor and outdoor pools, a full teak promenade deck, casual dining at the Lido Grill, and an ice-cream bar. Throughout the ship, priceless works of art created by world-famous artists line the walls, and museum-quality antiques reflect the time-honored Dutch maritime tradition. But perhaps Holland America's best feature is its attention to detail. Its crew is famed for flawless service, soft-spoken ways, and ever-present smiles.

Two elegant dining rooms on the ship cater to discriminating tastes. Their extensive menus feature light and healthy, vegetarian, continental, and ethnic dishes. There are grand venues for dancing, sunning, socializing, playing, shopping, and entertainment. Take in a Broadway-style show, try your luck in the ship's Monte Carlo-inspired casino, or watch a current film (with free popcorn) in the deluxe movie theater. There's also a state-of-the-art fitness center, luxurious spa with a full roster of indulgences, and Dutch High Tea every afternoon.
