Five-Star Luxury for Less on Holland America Koningsdam

Cruise on Holland America’s newest luxury ship in the Caribbean this winter.

5* 7 night Southern Caribbean Cruise & 2 night Fort Lauderdale Stay

Earlier this year Holland America launched the eagerly anticipated Koningsdam, their newest 5* cruise ship. The Koningsdam is Holland America’s leader in their Pinnacle class of ships and for obvious reasons too with its impressive choice of activities, restaurants and leisure options on board.

Take for example Blend by Chateau Michelle which enables you to blend your own wine which you can then enjoy at dinner or in the peaceful privacy of your own luxurious stateroom. Chateau Michelle is Washington State’s oldest and most acclaimed winery – so who better to take you through the process of wine tasting and blending? Alternatively, guests with a passion for cooking will appreciate the Culinary Arts Centre on board where you can watch demonstrations and attend hands-on classes with the state of the art cooking stations.

The Koningsdam is filled with amazing eateries including Sel de Mer, an intimate seafood brasserie which serves up favourite dishes from seafood chowder to scallops and bouillabaisse. Wherever possible the chefs will even go ashore whilst the ship is in port to get the freshest possible ingredients.

The Tamarind restaurant is another speciality restaurant not to be missed. Serving up exotic dishes inspired by Southeast Asia, China and Japan the restaurant has an amazing ambience decorated with rich purple and golden tones along with dark wooden accents.



Of course the main dining is at the heart of the culinary experience on the Koningsdam. Here you’ll discover a decadent choice of dishes each evening whilst appreciating the sophisticated and glamorous decor.

For light bites there are some equally amazing places to dine on the ship including the Grand Dutch Cafe where guests can enjoy a fine pale lager with a tasty Danish snack or instead head to the Explorations Cafe which is powered by the New York Times and features a daily crossword puzzle, speciality coffees and freshly baked muffins.

For entertainment and activities on board, you’ll find an amazing choice to keep you as busy or relaxed as you like. The Greenhouse Spa and Salon offers treatments to soothe body and mind and leave you feeling wonderfully pampered. At the other end of the spectrum, there’s the fitness centre which has the latest cardio and weight machines along with classes for yoga, pilates and more.

Come evening the choice of entertainment gets even better with live music and shows available in the elegant Queen’s Lounge and the World Stage which features 270 LED screens which surround the audience to create a fully immersive theatre experience.

If this sounds like your kind of ship then don’t miss this incredible offer brought to you by Cruise Nation.

The 9 night holiday features a two night stay in Fort Lauderdale prior to a 7 night Caribbean cruise.

With two days to explore Fort Lauderdale you can make the most of this laid-back city which is steeped in sunshine, perhaps even taking the opportunity to go on a safari in the eerie yet stunning Everglades National Park. After boarding the Koningsdam, you’ll visit Half Moon Cay, George Town in the Cayman Islands, Cozumel and Key West.

The package is based on an Inside stateroom and includes your flights, hotel stay and full board cruise from £999pp with the flights based on Gatwick. Regional flights may be available for a supplement. Other categories of stateroom are available including a Large Ocean View for just £100pp exta.
