HM Amsterdam is large enough to offer plenty to do, yet small enough to feel wonderfully intimate.
HM Amsterdam expertly blends tradition with modern touches. With a capacity of 1,390 passengers, the ship is a spacious and relaxed setting for a memorable voyage. At the heart of the ship is the spectacularly impressive Planeto Astrolabium, a commissioned signature sculpture that soars in the three-story atrium. The stunning Astrolabe tracks constellations, the planets, world time and ship time, and is just one of several works of art that adorn the interior.
