The Koningsdam Comes Alive With Music
Aboard the Koningsdam, indulge in a tasting and wine-blending workshop with Chateau Ste. Michelle. Blend your own from five red varietals. Afterward, sip a bottle of your creation in your stateroom as you leave port.
Or take part in one of many workshops at the Culinary Arts Center — presented by Food & Wine magazine. When hunger comes calling, head to Tamarind for an aromatic Southeast Asian, Japanese, or Chinese meal. Go for authentic Italian at Canaletto or a meal to go at Lido Market.
For a bird’s eye view, head to the Crow’s Nest at the pinnacle of the Koningsdam, and watch the world sail by while sipping a cocktail. For “wow” chamber music, head to Lincoln Center Stage. B.B. King's All-Stars Band offers a soulful show at sea, while Billboard Onboard is the place to hear chart-topping tunes.

The iconic Queen’s Lounge has been completely re-imagined as a striking two-tiered nightclub. Adam D. Tihany once again drew inspiration for the space from musical instruments, nodding to the graceful curves and making extensive use of wood, fluid waveforms, and light. By day, the beautiful room hosts presentations, speakers, and other special events. At night, The Queen’s Lounge will host the popular B.B. King’s Blues Club, showcasing the sounds of Memphis performed by an amazing eight-piece band. And following the evening’s entertainment, the room transforms yet again, into a late-night dance club fueled by state-of-the-art sound and special LED lighting effects.
Billboard Onboard will showcase the talents of live musicians — including two pianists, a guitarist and a DJ — who will take turns performing dynamic shows centered around the interesting facts and figures of the music industry as chronicled by Billboard. Between the nightly sets and songs, guests can sing and play along with trivia questions presented on screens throughout the room.
Breaking from the line’s traditionally styled theaters, the World Stage is a flexible space that can have multiple stage configurations, ranging from in-the-round to the more conventional proscenium staging. The theater will initially host five new productions performed in repertory by a cast sourced from around the world. Entertainment meets innovation with a new main theater design that surrounds the audience with a 270-degree LED screen. At two stories high and 250 feet long, the high-definition LED screens will make the World Stage a trend-setting theater at sea capable of showcasing an exciting array of performances and productions. Enhanced by state-of-the-art lighting, projection and sound systems, the screens enable the environment of the World Stage to change throughout the day to present anything the designers can imagine. For example, the room can evolve effortlessly from an Italian palazzo for a concert performance to an imaginary world for innovative production numbers.
The Crow’s Nest, a favorite place for guests to gather at the top of every ship, is elegantly styled aboard ms Koningsdam. As always, views—captured by huge wrap-around windows—take center stage, offering panoramic scenes that change by the nautical mile. Settle in and salute the sunset with a fresh signature cocktail from the Crow’s Nest bar. Take a front row seat as Koningsdam glides through a breathtaking fjord or into the next colorful island port. From an intimate nook to observe and wonder to a festive setting to meet family and friends, the Crow’s Nest is your airy, expansive perch on the world.

A hallmark of the Holland America Line experience, the Lido Pool, domed by a retractable glass roof, has been given added dimension aboard Koningsdam, extending its appeal from day into night. Swimming, sunning and lunch al fresco by day give way to the hum of moviegoers arriving for the evening’s show, projected on an expansive outdoor movie screen. Feature films play under a canopy of stars with complimentary snacks served chair-side and guests can also pick up a great dish from any of the adjacent casual dining venues. Now spanning two levels, the Lido Pool is a haven with comfortable lounge chairs for relaxing and great choices for a bite to eat, from New York Deli & Pizza to Dive-In for a gourmet burger to Gelato for delicious ice cream treats.
