Join Us for "Countdown to Koningsdam" Video Series

We are debuting a series of short videos called "Countdown to Koningsdam" that provide construction updates as the ship nears completion. Hosted by Johnathan Rogers, Koningsdam's inaugural cruise director, each video features one of the ship's principal officers or a Holland America Line executive who speaks about their area of interest.

At the helm of the videos is Cruise Director Johnathan Rogers, who joined Holland America Line in 2014 and is thrilled to be able to put his proficiency in six languages (soon to be eight) to good use with the line's international guests and crew. Since embarking on his first voyage as Cruise Director, he has worked on ms Veendam, ms Volendam, ms Westerdam and ms Rotterdam.

Stay tuned for more episodes and exclusive insight as we prepare for Koningsdam's launch and Christening cruises beginning in April 2016.
