The Park West art gallery aboard Holland America Line’s Koningsdam

Holland America Line set sail with its first-ever Pinnacle-class ship, Koningsdam, on April 8, and Park West Gallery was on board to celebrate the occasion.

Holland America Line’s Koningsdam began its maiden voyage from Civitavecchia, Italy over the weekend. She is taking cruisers on Mediterranean voyages before she relocates to northern Europe, where the ship will be based in Amsterdam.

In October, Koningsdam is scheduled to cross the Atlantic to reposition to the Caribbean for the winter.

Koningsdam is the first in the line’s Pinnacle-class. The Pinnacle-class ships offer more space for public venues as well as innovative features not seen in previous ship classes. At 99,500 gross tons, the 2,650-passenger ship is also the largest in the Holland America Line fleet. Koningsdam was delivered to the cruise line on April 2.

Koningsdam offers a slew of amenities including BLEND, an intimate venue where guests blend their own wine to enjoy at dinner or in the privacy of their staterooms. Dining amenities also include a farm-to-table concept dinner experience in the Culinary Arts Center, where guests can also enjoy cooking demonstrations during the day.

The ship’s interior design incorporates musical themes with brightly-lit spaces, fluid lines and eye-catching textures created by acclaimed designers Adam D. Tihany and Bjorn Storbraaten.

The design theme carries into the Music Walk, where strolling guests can discover a set of three venues featuring performances from numerous music genres: Queen’s Lounge, Billboard Onboard and Lincoln Center Lounge.

Park West Gallery is proud to operate a gallery and art auctions aboard Koningsdam, providing collectors the chance to soak up the atmosphere while enjoying and collecting fine art.

The next Pinnacle-class ship is scheduled for delivery in November 2018.
