Lifestyle onboard your Holland America cruise ship
ms Ryndam manages to capture the intimate atmosphere of a classic cruise ship whilst offering guests all the modern amenities you could possibly require.

Like all Holland America cruise ships, ms Ryndam's public rooms are elegantly decorated and feature a mix of traditional and contemporary artworks and priceless antiques, many reflecting a maritime theme.
Your master chefs work regular miracles in the kitchens to bring you a choice of delicious dining options, while the crew spend their days and nights attending to your every pleasure.

Daytime cruising on ms Ryndam
ms Ryndam is a family-friendly cruise ship, with plenty for kids to do onboard. Up on the Sports Deck there's Club HAL® for 3-12 year olds, plus the Loft and Oasis for 13-17 year olds. These are dedicated kids' areas where they can have fun, enjoy supervised activities and socialise with new-found friends.
There's a video arcade right next door to the kids' clubs as well as tennis and basketball courts. Just a short walk away is a swimming pool with a retractable glass dome for when the weather turns cloudy - so the whole deck's seventh heaven for all the active families onboard.
Your cruise ship also has plenty of space for when you want to get away from it all. The Lido Pool is a peaceful place to lounge with long, cool drinks on tap. Or you can grab a coffee at the Explorations Café and browse through the library, listen to a wide selection of CDs or surf the Internet.
There's also a fitness centre, exercise classes, cookery demonstrations and wine tasting to keep you fit and feeling inspired, or just chill out altogether and spend a luxurious afternoon at the Greenhouse Spa.
