Overview

More colorful than most of Holland America's fleet, ms Oosterdam launched in 2003 and was last updated in 2016. The 1,964-passenger ship houses 812 crew members, making the passenger-to-crew ratio roughly 2-to-1.

The ship features six stateroom categories: Inside, Ocean View, Verandah, Signature Suite, Pinnacle Suite and Neptune Suite. All accommodations are outfitted with Sealy-Premium Euro-Top mattresses, flat-screen TVs and plenty of storage space.

Like other Vista-class ships, ms Oosterdam is equipped with a large pool and a sizable spa and fitness area, along with America's Test Kitchen, BBC Earth Experiences and sports courts. While there are kids and teens clubs for younger passengers, most of the activities and entertainment on the ship are geared toward adults.

When it's time to dine, guests can enjoy varied dishes in the main dining room, Italian fare at Canaletto or more casual options. On select nights, guests can dine on French seafood dishes from Sel De Mer at the Pinnacle Grill. 

In 2018-19, ms Oosterdam departs from ports in Fort Lauderdale, San Diego, Seattle and Vancouver. Itineraries include destinations in Alaska, the Caribbean, Hawaii and Tahiti, Mexico, the Panama Canal and the Pacific Coast.
