With a Dutch worldwide exploration theme, the decor of the ms Ryndam features art and artifacts from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries.
Guests aboard this spacious ship encounter elegance at every turn - from a string quartet serenade in the splendid Rotterdam Dining Room to the two-deck Vermeer Show Lounge. At the heart of the ms Ryndam a three-story atrium features a monumental fountain created by sculptor Gilbert Lebigre in Pietrasanta, Italy. And with a gracious and unobtrusive crew, the superior service that is signature Holland America Line is never far away.
Like her sister ships, the ms Ryndam is designed to provide more space for fewer guests than other ships in her class (149 of her staterooms feature private verandahs).

The two-tier Rotterdam Dining Room features impeccable service and an extensive wine list, and offers five-course menus, from continental cuisine to vegetarian and low-carb options
