Technology and luxury

Princess Margriet of the Netherlands christened the MS Oosterdam in 2003. MS Oosterdam is the second in the series of Vista-class cruise ships, and encompasses all the environmental technology her designers could think of, such as diesel-electrics, and an Azipod propulsion unit.

A crystal palace

Packed with tradition and ambience, MS Oosterdam is a work of art in of herself, decked out in crystal, inlaid wood, brass, and marble – and within her three-story atrium, she displays a huge crystal globe as her centrepiece. Onboard there is priceless artwork to tempt the eye of the most discerning art critic, creative flower arrangements, and a huge promenade deck that surrounds the ship, complete with padded deck-chairs.
