    MS Amsterdam (Holland America Line)


    MS Amsterdam is one of four R-class ships, she was the second ship delivered and a complete twin of MS Rotterdam. At the heart of MS Amsterdam is the Planeto Astrolabium, a commissioned signature sculpture soaring in a three-story atrium. The stunning Astrolabe tracks constellations, the planets, world time and ship time.

    MS Amsterdam spends the summer around Alaska and in the late summer moves to San Diego for roundtrip cruises to Hawaii, the South Pacific and the Mexican Riviera. In January the ship relocates to Fort Lauderdale and conducts a four-month long world voyage.


    Named for the Dutch capital, MS Amsterdam is the third ship to bear the name in Holland America Line’s over 140-year history.
