Koningsdam is Holland America's most luxurious ship, with modern updates to their timeless traditions.  This groundbreaking 2500-passenger vessel features strikikng modern design and seemingly endless ocean views along with truly unique entertainment venues and cutting-edge dining options.

Innovative Dining Options

Koningsdam’s offers an exciting blend of delicious options for all tastes and styles in an incredible choice of new venues. As with all Atlantis cruises, there is never an assigned table, dress code (that’s right… no more formal nights) or assigned dining time – you’re always free to dine whenever, wherever, and with whomever you like. It’s the perfect way to make new friends!

Framed by views of the sea and anchored by a stunning glass enclosed wine tower, the heart of Koningsdam rests in The Dining Room, with an ultra-modern interior and lavish multi-course menus to delight the senses.

Abundant casual options begin with the Lido Market, a modern marketplace featuring themed stations that change throughout the day to tantalize your palate. From pizza and panini to comfort classics and hand-carved meats, you’ll find a wide range of choices. Grab a delicious slice at New York Deli & Pizza or a mouth-watering burger poolside at Dive-In or a sumptuous snack at the Grand Dutch Café. The choices are endless and virtually always available.

And of course, if those options aren’t enough, there’s always 24-hour room service. Please note that charges apply to some room service offerings.

Specialty Restaurants

For a masterpiece of grilled premium steaks and fresh seafood, look no further than Holland America’s classic Pinnacle Grill. This intimate venue offers an elegant, sophisticated dining experience that’s perfect for a date or celebratory dinner.

Canaletto Restaurant, Koningsdam’s signature Italian restaurant, serves fresh made pastas and other fabulous Italian specialties family-style in a casual yet sophisticated setting.

Tamarind Restaurant offer spectacular pan-Asian cuisine with truly stunning panoramic views of the ocean.

Sel de Mer is an intimate seafood brasserie offering French classics with a twist. From bouillabaisse and fresh oysters to salt-crusted whole fish, this new restaurant concept is sure to impress.

Dinner at the Culinary Arts Center, Holland America Line’s show kitchen transforms into a dining venue at night for the first time on Koningsdam. It’s a farm-to-table concept, with the emphasis on vegetarian and organic dishes, prepared simply, though portion sizes might be a tad too small for some. The line has a partnership with herb specialist Koppert Cress, and grows cress in fridge-like incubators onboard the ship; it appears in most dishes.

Please note that an extra charge applies for all specialty restaurants.

Healthy Options & Special Needs

For guests with special dietary needs, Atlantis and Holland America offer “Light and Healthy” menu items featuring meals low in sodium and cholesterol, vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free, fat-free, diabetic, or other special needs, as requested.

The striking and modern main pool features plenty of space to relax, swim, and play. There’s even a full “magradome” roof that can be closed to create an indoor pool space. Private cabanas will be available to reserve by the day onboard. They are tastefully decorated, filled with amenities, and provide an exquisite poolside retreat.
