It's always a thrill to anticipate a new ship joining Holland America Line's magnificent fleet. But it's especially exciting when that new arrival is the first of a new class of ship. For when the 2,650-guest ms Koningsdam sets sail in February 2016, she will not only be the first to bear that name, she will usher in a new era of Pinnacle-class cruising.

Pinnacle means "high point" - and the debut of Koningsdam is a high point in Holland America Line history. Then again, in many ways, Koningsdam has been 141 years in the making. As heir, she'll carry forward all of the tradition, nautical heritage, and signature service and style for which Holland America Line is known-while raising the bar for 21st-century elegance.

Her name sets the tone. Its roots, like the ship itself, are a mix of something contemporary and something classic: "Koning," means king in Dutch - and is a salute to King Willem-Alexander, the Netherland's first king in more than 100 years. And "dam," because, after all … this is a Holland America Line ship, and the "dam" naming convention dates back to 1883.
