We can’t get enough of Koningsdam, and we hope you can’t either! A new ship brings new adventures, and for so many finally seeing photos of the ship rather than renderings is exciting. To bring the ship to life for those who aren’t cruising any time soon, Michel Verdure, one of the foremost photographers in the cruise industry, sailed aboard Koningsdam from the shipyard to Civitavecchia. During the journey he spent day and night capturing every aspect of the ship, from public venues and entertainment to art and staterooms.
Come aboard through some of his photos and see how beautiful the ship looks.
