  3. Koningsdam
Chose Koningsdam because it is a new ship. Good looking ship and very well appointed. Nice crew as usual for Holland America. Because it's a new ship, it was completely full. Pluses: Great crew Food excellent Ship in great shape Minuses: My room (4070) and rooms near me are right above the band at night. From 8:30 to 11:30pm, don't even think about being in your room, much less sleeping. After that, the disco takes over but is not quite as loud. The BB King band reverberates in the room. I complained several times but no other rooms available. Still tired a week later. They should note these rooms as having noise issues. For the late night folks or deaf.. Jogging track is on floor 11 and is very small. Doesn't go around the whole ship making for a lot of turns. Walking deck on 3 isn't very wide and doesn't contain any deck chairs (too narrow) The shows were just ok. Maybe I was too tired from not sleeping because I did enjoy them. Cool that they have a big movie theater on the 9th floor near the pool. BUT, they shouldn't always show R rated movies in there. Kids are hanging out there. Samuel L. Jackson was in typical form in one of these movies.

Nice ship but noisy room at night on 4th floor above the band

Chose Koningsdam because it is a new ship. Good looking ship and very well appointed. Nice crew as usual for Holland America. Because it's a new ship, it was completely full.

Pluses:

Great crew

Food excellent

Ship in great shape

Minuses:

My room (4070) and rooms near me are right above the band at night. From 8:30 to 11:30pm, don't even think about being in your room, much less sleeping.

Cabin Review

Verandah Stateroom
Cabin VE 4070
Nice cabin w/ somewhat obstructed view but not too bad. I knew that. Didn't know the band was playing right below me all night. VERY LOUD until 11:30, then the disco starts up until as they told me people quit wanting to dance.
Anyone would have a problem with this room unless you're just not there from 8:30-midnight.
Very disappointed in this.
