Ten Holland America Line ships are to be upgraded at a cost of $300 million.
Top cabins will have new furnishings, decor, amenities and upgrades for all suites on the line’s Signature, Vista and R-class ships.
The first ships to be revamped will be Eurodam and Oosterdam, followed by Nieuw Amsterdam, Westerdam, Zuiderdam and Noordam.
Additionally, Amsterdam, Rotterdam (pictured), Volendam and Zaandam will receive the suite enhancements as they go into scheduled dry dock for work over the next few years.
Eurodam is due to go into refit on December 7-20, 2015, at Freeport, Bahamas, and Oosterdam will go into dry dock on April 3-18, 2016, at Fincantieri’s yard at Palermo, Sicily.
Electronic upgrades will include a new USB outlet added to the bed’s headboard, bedside LED lights that facilitate late-night reading, upgraded electrical outlets and an interactive television system with free films on demand.
HAL president, Orlando Ashford, said: “Our suites are the epitome of luxury and pampering, and the new amenities and upgrades will ensure that our suite guests will continue to enjoy the finest in cruise accommodations.
“We have an ongoing program in place to keep our ships looking fresh, but dry-docking gives us an opportunity to take enhancements to the next level to ensure we deliver the elements that make up the Holland America Line cruise experience.“
