On October 20, 2004, Holland America Line re-launched the spacious and elegant ms Ryndam, featuring dramatic product and service enhancements in virtually every area of the ship. All of the guest-pleasing improvements, upgrades and amenities are a direct result of Holland America Line's $225 million Signature of Excellence initiative which focuses on five areas: spacious, elegant ships and accommodations; sophisticated five-star dining; gracious, unobtrusive service; extensive enrichment programs and activities; and compelling worldwide destinations.
Designed to carry fewer passengers than others in her class, the ms Ryndam is among the most spacious ships at sea and the perfect choice for those who wish to see the world in style. Themed around Dutch worldwide exploration, the décor features art and artifacts from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. Guests aboard Ryndam encounter elegance at every turn - from a string quartet serenade in the splendid dining room to the two-deck Vermeer Show Lounge named for the master painter.
