Holland America Amsterdam

Holland America Amsterdam – An Overview

The Holland America Amsterdam is a sophisticated ship best-suited for the "Baby Boomer" generation. The Amsterdam does offer a children's program (Club HAL®), but – due to the length of Amsterdam cruises and the average age of the clientele – the ship tends to be most popular with couples and older singles. The ship's luxurious surroundings, exceptional customer service, and wonderful food completely exemplify Holland America's motto "A Signature of Excellence."

Launched in 2000 and refurbished in 2005, the Holland America Amsterdam is an intimate ship weighing in at 61,000 tons and carrying just 1,380 passengers. As with all Holland America ships, the Amsterdam offers travelers modern elegance, spacious cabins, beautiful artwork, and a taste of luxury at every turn.

The cabins onboard the Amsterdam, available in 17 different categories ranging from standard inside cabins to the Penthouse Verandah Suite, are both spacious and elegant. No matter which category you choose, you will not be disappointed. All cabins come standard with fine toiletries, nightly chocolates on your pillow, a mini-safe, a television, a telephone, a hairdryer, and a data port. 81% of all cabins onboard the Holland America Amsterdam are outside cabins; 25% of those cabins include private verandahs.

Holland America Amsterdam – Dining

Enjoy a delicious five-course meal in the ship's elegant, two-story La Fontaine dining room. Choose from one of four seating times for dinner; open seating is available for both breakfast and lunch. The Pinnacle Grill provides guests with an upscale dinner option at a surcharge of $20 per person (and it's well-worth the price). If you prefer something more casual, the Lido Restaurant offers passengers self-serve, buffet-style food. It's open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Dining options onboard the Amsterdam include:

  • La Fontaine (Main Dining Room)
  • Pinnacle Grill & Bar (Surcharges Apply)
  • Lido Restaurant
  • Terrace Grill
  • 24-Hour Room Service
