Holland America MS Oosterdam

Officially christened in 2003 by Her Dutch Royal Highness, Princess Margriet of the Netherlands, the ms Oosterdam is the second in our series of Vista-class ships. As such she embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system that maximizes maneuverability.

Symbolic of Holland America Line's more than 135-year history of circumnavigating the globe, the centerpiece of the ms Oosterdam is a magnificent Waterford crystal globe, prominently displayed in a three-story atrium. First-time cruisers aboard this ship will quickly recognize the traditional touches that make Holland America cruisers regulars: a warm palette of colors accentuating an extensive use of crystal, marble, inlaid woods and brass, lovely flower arrangements, priceless artwork and antiques and a full wraparound teak promenade deck with padded deck chairs.

Join us aboard the ms Oosterdam for a Mexican Riviera cruise, an exploration of the West Coast and Pacific Northwest region, an Alaskan cruise to the Inside Passage and Glacier Bay or in 2010 a European cruise vacation.

Gross Tonnage: 82,000 grt.(One registered ton equals 100 cubic feet) Length: 936 feet Beam: 105.8 feet Maximum speed: 24 knots (service at 22 knots) Ship's Registry: The Netherlands Passenger capacity: 1,848 Crew: 800 Dedicated: July 2003 by HRH Princess Margriet of the Netherlands

DESTINATION INFORMATION

Seattle, Washington

The Emerald City of the Pacific Northwest, Seattle is known for its stunning waterfront. “Catch” a salmon at Pike Place Market, ride to the top of the Space Needle, sample a local microbrew in funky Fremont, or down a cup of java in the coffee capital of the world.

Juneau, Alaska

For years Juneau’s livelihood, like that of many cities in Alaska, was tied to mining. The city itself is built on tailings from the A-J mine whose shafts perforate the hillside above town. Because it is Alaska’s capital, Juneau prospers through government work and tourism. This is a great place to sample salmon baked over an alderwood fire, pan for gold, and hike the massive Juneau Icefield. If you feel the need for speed, hop on a sled and let a dog team pull you across the surface of a glacier.

Sitka, Alaska

Bald eagles perch in the spruce and cedar trees of Sitka—often several to a branch. Russian Alaska is enthusiastically represented in a lively performance by the New Archangel Dancers. View holy paintings of the Czarist days, and visit recuperating eagles at the rehabilitation center.

Ketchikan, Alaska

In the heart of the Tongass National Forest, immerse yourself in Tlingit Indian culture and view the world’s largest collection of totem poles; kayak the colorful waterfront and stroll the boardwalk that once led to Ketchikan’s red light district.

Victoria, British Columbia

High tea can be taken at the Empress Hotel if you really want to discover what Victoria is all about. Then, walk over to the breathtaking Museum of Natural History or stroll through the charming downtown of that lives up to its British-flavored name with double-decker buses, turreted castles, fine British woollens and delicate china. A coach-ride away, the Butchart Garden earns every superlative of its impeccable reputation for glorious blooms and redolent scents.
