Video Series Showcases Holland America Line’s ms Koningsdam Design Concept

Not every ship has a “theme” behind its design, but every design starts with an idea. For its newest vessel, ms Koningsdam, Holland America Line tapped acclaimed hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany to create unique and striking spaces throughout the ship. In a new video series—“Conversations with Adam D. Tihany”—the cruise line gives viewers a glimpse into the vision of the designer and his inspiration behind the ship’s interiors. In the first video, Tihany reveals how the “Architecture of Music” and the curves of particular instruments influenced public spaces on the ship. Viewers will learn how Tihany’s vision creates a story that is told through the design and décor of the ship’s venues.

“The concept behind “Architecture of Music” is not loud, so to speak, but presents opportunity for discovery throughout the ship,” said Tihany. “The design on ms Koningsdam tells an unique story—one that I love to tell and that I hope will keep guests coming back to experience again and again.”

“Koningsdam interiors are stunning, thanks to Adam’s incredible talents, and this video series is an exclusive opportunity to learn how this world-renowned hospitality designer created a vision for our newest ship and brought it to life,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “We’re introducing several new venues on Koningsdam, and Adam’s signature style of sophistication and innovation is going to create an impressive onboard ambiance for our guests—classic with a modern twist.”

The second video in the series will touch on the design behind Koningsdam’s culinary venues that include hallmark spaces such as the Dining Room, Lido Marketplace, and Pinnacle Grill, as well as the new Sel de Mer and Dinner at the Culinary Arts Center. In the final video Tihany will share how the art of design can influence a guest’s exploration of new places and emphasizes his design goal of creating a once-in-a-lifetime experience that entices a guest to return.
