The beautiful garden theme of the ms Volendam includes an artful floral motif throughout the ship's spacious public rooms and elegant staterooms (149 of which have private verandahs). "Flowers" can be found in abundance on her public decks and in unexpected places in the forms of floral fabrics and tapestries, as well as huge vases of tropical floral arrangements and chrysanthemums. This beautiful ship accommodates 1,440 guests.
In addition to fresh flowers throughout the ship, Holland America Line has drawn on its stores of incredible artwork to enhance the interior of this beautiful ship's public spaces. Everything from pre-Columbian fetishes and sculptures to Renaissance-era fountains imported from Italy are included in its hallway galleries. At the heart of the ship an elegant sculpture by Luciano Vistosi, inspired by the myriad of moods and colors of a kaleidoscope, greets visitors in a soaring three-story atrium. The ms Volendam completed all Signature of Excellence enhancements to her public rooms and staterooms in Fall 2005.
