The ms Statendam is the fifth ship to bear the name in Holland America Line's 133-year history. With more than $2 million worth of art and artifacts, the ms Statendam features a theme of Dutch life and exploration. The Van Gogh Theater is a work of art in itself. Themed to Dutch artist Vincent Van Gogh's paintings "The Starry Night" and "Irises," the room features computerized fiber optic lighting as well as a state-of-the-art sound system.
You can expect more of the same aboard this signature Holland America ship; fine dining, spacious staterooms (149 of which feature private verandahs), the best in cruise entertainment, relaxing nooks and beautiful art displayed throughout the ship. In the center of the ship, a soaring three-story atrium showcases an elaborate 26-foot-high "Fountain of the Siren" sculpture, which extends from the Lower Promenade Deck to the Upper Promenade. The ms Statendam recently completed all Signature of Excellence enhancements to her public rooms in Spring 2005. Traveling aboard the ms Statendam is world-class cruising at its finest.
