Alaskan Explorer Cruise
|3||Scenic Cruising Stephens Passage, Junuea, Alaska|
Oosterdam is the second in the series of Vista-class ships built for Holland America Line. She embraces the latest industry and environmental technologies such as her use of a diesel-electric power plant for optimal energy efficiency and an Azipod propulsion system that maximizes manoeuvrability.
She is truly symbolic of Holland America Line’s more than 140-year history and she boasts more staterooms with verandas for private sunning, dining and relaxing. More dining choices including an intimate reservations-only restaurant, the casual Windstar Café, and the Lido Restaurant - now transformed to a culinary courtyard. More ways to pamper and relax in The Greenhouse Spa and Salon - one of the largest and most luxurious in the fleet. More lounges and nightclubs to entertain you. And more dazzling surprises: two elevators are glass, on the outside of the ship with hundred-mile views.
She truly is a superb choice of ship for both experienced cruisers and those who are looking to experience cruising for the very first time.
