It’s been an exciting few weeks since Koningsdam set sail on its first cruise, and we know fans want to see more of the ship and hear more from the architects.
Architectural designer Bjørn Storbratten worked with Holland America Line on Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, and for Koningsdam he was responsible for some of the ship’s signature rooms. Not only did Storbraaten design the two-story Lido pool deck — a first for Holland America Line — and all of the surrounding eateries like New York Pizza and Deli, Gelato and Dive-In, he also worked to take entertainment to a new level with World Stage. Storbraaten also designed the ship’s casino, aft pool area, Greenhouse Spa and Salon including the hydropool, fitness center, Tamarind, Club HAL, Crow’s Next and Retreat cabanas.
Join Storbraaten at the yard as the ship nears completion and see his excitement as he sees his designs come to life.
For eager Holland America Line fans here are more photos by renowned photographer Michel Verdure. His imagery does not disappoint, bringing Koningsdam’s vivid decor to life.
Stay tuned to see Koningsdam’s stateroom and suites. From the new single and family to the gorgeous Pinnacle Suite, Michel captured them all. Be sure to check out his other photos on his website: http://www.verdurephoto.com
