Built in 1994 as Holland America's third Statendam-class vessel, the Ryndam is a mid-sized vessel by today's standards. She offers the typical premium-level HAL product as it is loved by the company's loyal followers.

    HAL Ryndam: an excellent cruise. This is a too lengthy review of only a short (seven-day) cruise, but it reflects our enjoyment and satisfaction from it. It was a cruise in more
