The Dining Room is where Koningsdam’s guests will dine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a more formal setting. The ambiance of the two-story restaurant is sophisticated and airy, with several impressive new features for a Holland America Line ship. The bright, modern design creates a unique dining venue while reflecting the ship’s overall design theme that was inspired by the architecture of music. The sunny, yellow room features expansive windows that allow for maximum daylight and views of the sea. In the evening the color turns to a darker shade of amber, setting the tone for a more elegant evening dining ambience. Structural ribs inspired by the strings of a classical harp connect the first floor to the second floor ceiling and create the sense of a more rounded, curvilinear space. A grand, curved staircase connects the two dining levels.
The centerpiece of The Dining Room is a sculptural champagne gold wine tower designed to appear folded and fluid. Flowing over the dining experience are stunning chandeliers made from strings of tri-color, hand-blown glass bulbs.
On the menu will be Holland America Line’s signature dishes, classic selections, regionally inspired cuisine, and Culinary Council recipes from the world-famous chefs who compose the group, including Holland America Line’s Master Chef and Council Chairman Rudi Sodamin and renowned international chefs Mark Best, Jonnie Boer, David Burke, Elizabeth Falkner and Jacques Torres.
