About This Ship
Cruise Ship Overview
The second of Holland America Line’s Vista-class ship, Oosterdam was named for the Eastern compass point and christened in 2003. As a symbol of the line's history of circumnavigating the globe, the centerpiece of Oosterdam’s atrium is a magnificent Waterford-crystal globe. In addition to her art collection, her cast-aluminum elevator doors were inspired by the art deco work of the New York Chrysler Building.
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.
