About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The fourth and final Vista-class ship, Noordam launched in 2006. Named for the Northern compass point, the ship carries such museum-quality paintings as an oil portrait of the city of Utrecht from 1842, as well as contemporary art pieces like the series of photographs of music greats Dizzy Gillespie and BB King.
Ships for the 21st century, Vista-class vessels integrate new, youthful and family-friendly elements into Holland America Line's classic fleet. Exquisite Waterford-crystal sculptures adorn triple-deck atriums and reflect vivid, almost daring color schemes throughout. Although all the public rooms carry the traditional Holland America names (Ocean Bar, Explorer's Lounge, Crow's Nest) and aren't much different in atmosphere, their louder decor (toned down a bit since the introduction of the Zuiderdam) may make them unfamiliar to returning passengers.
Veterans of cruises on older Holland America ships will find the layout of public spaces somewhat different; still, everyone's favorite Crow's Nest lounges continue to offer those commanding views.
