  3. Koningsdam
The Koningsdam is a lovely ship. The itinerary was a pleasant experience for December. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The food was very good and plentiful. The singers and dancers provided high energy entertainment, but the other acts were just so -so. The music in the clubs -Lincoln Center, B.B.Kings and Billboard- as excellent. I would not recommend this ship for children. There was a children’s club onboard, but not much else for kids to do. The embarkation and disembarkation went smoothly. Cabins were ready when we boarded We did not eat in any specialty restaurants. The food in the main dining room was varied and tasty. I do not like Holland America’s dining reservation policies, especially for a table for two. You need to make a reservation for every evening or choose to be a walk-in and take whatever table is available. All in all, I think Holland America caters to an older crowd which works for me. The atmosphere was very pleasant and serene.

Very nice sailing

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VS 7116
The cabin was a midship verandah which had very little movement during rough seas. The best part of the verandah was the balcony. Because of its location on the ship, the balcony had an irregular shape and it was huge. It had two chairs, a small table, and I requested a chaise lounge, too. We had plenty of space for all of it. The pool area filled up quickly, so I spent most of my free time lounging on the balcony
