msWesterdam
 

Holland AmericaThe ms Westerdam is the third in Holland America Line's series of Vista-class ships. Defining the future of cruising, the ms Westerdam offers guests more of everything they desire on a cruise ship: more staterooms with private verandahs, more dining choices from formal dinners to casual poolside dining, more exotic destinations, and the very best in cruise activities and cruise entertainment. As with all Vista-class ships, she embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as such as her use of a full-scale diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system that maximizes maneuverability.

The theme of the ms Westerdam's art collection is Dutch heritage in the New World. Artwork includes paintings of historic Dutch ships, such as Henry Hudson's Half Moon, as well as impressive sculptures and statues. Contemporary pieces include an original Andy Warhol portrait and signature sculptures by Sedona artist Susanna Holt.

  • 85 percent of all staterooms have ocean views, 67 percent of all staterooms have verandahs
  • The two-tier Vista Dining Room features impeccable service and an extensive wine list, and offers five-course menus, from continental cuisine to vegetarian and low-carb options
  • The Culinary Arts Center, presented by Food & Wine magazine, is the setting for gourmet cooking demonstrations and interactive classes
  • The Greenhouse Spa & Salon features thermal suites, a hydrotherapy and thalassotherapy pool, heated ceramic lounges and more
  • The Vista Show Lounge features Las Vegas-style productions, talented vocalists, illusionists, comedians and variety acts
  • The Crow's Nest, where sweeping views make this observation lounge a top choice for relaxing during the day, and in the evening transforms into a hip, fashionable nightclub features top-notch DJs and live bands
