Shipboard Experience

Amusements and activities are plentiful on board our ships. With so many choices and cruise deals, there's something to suit everyone. How can one cruise line offer such fantastic cruise deals with so much value?

ActiveActive Lifesyles

When you're feeling athletic, there are pools for swimming and decks for strolling. Exercise classes, deck games and dual-purpose tennis/volleyball courts offer more fun. If golf is your game, we're ready for you. In addition to golf excursions on shore, guests of ms Oosterdam, ms Prinsendam, ms Westerdam and ms Zuiderdam may rent clubs and equipment on board and get personalized lessons from professional instructors.

Peace and Quiet

For quieter moments, visit the library or join a game of bridge in the card room. Or enjoy conversation with new friends over an espresso. Our spacious ships offer plenty of cozy corners and traditional wooden deck chairs for those who wish to spend time reading, writing letters or watching the changing sea.

Cruise Culture

If you thing the cruise deals are great, wait until you see the deals you can get with purchasing art on your cruise. Art lovers will enjoy guided tours of the ships' multi-million dollar collections of art and antiques. In addition, Parkwest Galleries manages onboard auctions where guests may purchase works of art and arrange for in-home delivery.


Just as the intriguing shops in the day's port of call fade into the horizon, a whole new world of shopping opens on board Holland America Line Cruise ships. Shop the onboard boutiques for duty-free treasures, including French fragrances and Swiss watches, fine liqueurs and designer goods


Choose to relax in one of the sophisticated bars or lounges on board. We offer everything from wine and cocktails to espresso and hand-dipped chocolates. Whether you enjoy a quiet candle-lit corner or a rollicking good time, you're sure to find something to suit your taste. Join in the fun with swing, disco, fox trot, waltzes and calypso at one of our several lounges. And be sure to take to the dance floor in our signature Crow's Nest nightclub and observation lounge.

Stage and Film

In our dramatic, multi-tiered show lounges on the cruise ship you'll enjoy dazzling Las Vegas- and Broadway-style production shows created by more Emmy®, Grammy®, Tony® and Oscar® nominees than any other cruise line. Cabarets featuring dancers, comedians and illusionists are also on the program. Film buffs can enjoy recently released movies. Our theaters serve up comedies, dramas, thrillers and hot buttered popcorn.

Steiner Leisure Greenhouse SpaGreen House Spa

Not only can we offer cruise deals but what about choosing the blissful pampering of a facial. Let the trained fingers of a massage therapist work fragrant oils into your skin, soothing your muscles. Enjoy therapeutic water treatments as you steam in a sauna or bathe in exotic herbs. Spas on board Holland America Line's Vista class ships feature the beauty and wellness rituals of the renowned Steiner Leisure. With everything from the hydrotherapy pool to hair and nail care, our spas and salons leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
