favorite composers during afternoon recitals and evening
performances; the BB King Blues Club, where passengers can
dance to horn-inflected Memphis-style R&B; the dueling
pianos of Billboard Onboard and World Stage, a technological
marvel that combines music, song, dance and comedy.
Rounding out the entertainment options are the interactive
travel resources available at Explorations Central; fascinating
multi-media presentations with world-class experts in art,
music, culture and history; Port to
Table classes and tastings featuring
local delicacies and, finally, a special
selection of culinary excursions
created in partnership with Food &
Wine magazine. Of course, there's also
a pampering spa, two pools and an
expansive fitness center.
As on the other Pinnacle Class
ships, Holland America engaged
acclaimed hospitality designer Adam
D. Tihany and Bjorn Storbraaten,
one of the world's leading architects
working in the cruise industry, to
bring music - and many of the
Rotterdam's destinations - alive
through architecture and design. For
instance, within the main dining
room, oversized white ribs, which
symbolize harp strings, rise
dramatically from floor to ceiling, bowing gracefully as they
stretch between Tihany-designed chandeliers hung with orbs
in shades of blue and gold. At the Grand Dutch Cafe, the
blue and white color scheme takes its cues from the country's
beloved Delft tiles. Behind the bar, a series of cutouts echo
the shape of Amsterdam's iconic rooflines.

Art and Luxury

Spiraling through multiple levels of the ship, Rotterdam's
atrium sculpture represents a deconstructed musical
instrument and serves as the centerpiece for the vessel's
extensive art collection. " Art has always been an important
component across the Holland America Line fleet, " says
Elvejord. " Rotterdam's collection includes many museumquality antiques, as well as contemporary art by recognized
artists from around the world. In all, more
than 2,500 photographs, paintings, mixed
media works, illustrations, prints and
sculptures valued at about $4 million
are planned. "
You can also feel that updated approach
in staterooms, which are done up in cool
neutrals with touches of navy, green and
black. Responding to the needs of guests,
Rotterdam offers a wide array of staterooms
and suites. They range from devoted singles
and compact inside berths to larger family
cabins that sleep five and offer a second
shower and sink. In all, the ship offers
more than a dozen lodging options. The
largest, the nearly 1,300-square-foot
Pinnacle Suite, has a king-sized bed,
powder room and a private verandah set
with a whirlpool. Creature comforts like
Elemis bath products, massaging
showerheads and pillow-top mattresses make even the most
efficient spaces feel luxurious. Guests in upper-level suites
will discover thoughtful extras like in-room binoculars,
double sinks in the bathrooms and whirlpool tubs.
Additional perks for guests booking Neptune and Pinnaclelevel include Club Orange benefits like priority boarding
