Only three ships in Holland America's 135-year history have borne the name of the Dutch capital. Constructed in Marghera, Italy, in the Fincantieri shipyards, MA Amsterdam is a fabulous blend of art and technology.
An artistic dream
Soaring three stories above MS Amsterdam's decks is the the signature sculpture Planeto Astrolabium, specially commissioned for the Holland America line. There are stunning displays of planets, constellations, and world and ship time.
MS Amsterdam's heritage is proudly displayed everywhere in the form of Art Deco, once gracing the Nieuw Amsterdam of 1938. If you prefer the contemporary touch, famous maritime artist Stephen Card is also featured in many public spaces.

Holland America have a fleet of 14 modern classic ships and offer more than 500 sailings a year visiting all seven continents. Over the years, Holland America have been defined by a mission they are very much committed to: Through excellence, we create one-in-a-lifetime experiences, every time.
As well as being one of the most luxurious liners on the seas, Holland America Lines are also very proud of their environmental programme. Throughout the years, this has been an important aspect of their business and safeguarding their guests, crews, ships and the environment in which they live and operate is not only the right thing to do, but it is essential to the successful conduct of their business. Some of this work involves giving back to communities and organisations around the world from cleaning up local parks to walking 5kms onboard to raise money for charity.
With a fleet of 14 exclusive cruise liners, Holland America has the world covered in terms of destinations. Each of the ships, whilst being unique offer the same high standard of amenities and services throughout. You can revel in spacious cruise ship rooms, breathe in the expansive views and relax in easy elegance. Whilst all of the Holland America liners are modern vessels, they feature rich woods, beautiful floral arrangements and handsome furnishings that create an inviting atmosphere in which to relax and unwind.
Each ship sails with nearly 1 crew member to every 2 guests which means you can expect a high level of personalised service throughout your time onboard. With wraparound teak decks, panoramic views and an abundance of spacious private verandas, each of the Holland America fleet is decked in luxury. A cruise with Holland America is like taking a 5-star hotel with you out to sea. From the exclusive dining to the onboard facilities to the exclusive staterooms – everything about a Holland America cruise oozes class.

As you would expect from a luxury cruise line like Holland America, the onboard experience reflects the 5-star experience you get throughout. What makes Holland America a little different is the onboard activities they offer. Whilst they have all the typical amenities you would expect from a luxury cruise like a fantastic spa, evening entertainment and exquisite dining options, the onboard activities are what makes a Holland America cruise stand out.
The onboard Culinary Arts Centres offer up a variety of fun, interesting and engaging sessions that are pretty unique. From the guest chef schedule which includes some of the hottest chefs in the world to the signature cooking classes which let you get hands on there’s something for everyone. We also love the wine tasting and mixology classes which teach guests how to make cocktails as well as sampling some delicious wines. Another pretty unique activity onboard is the Digital Workshop powered by Windows where you can learn digital photography, video editing and web skills whilst cruising.
