In addition to fresh flowers throughout the ship, Holland America Line has drawn on its collection of incredible artwork to enhance the interior of the 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.

Useful to Know
To ensure that the efforts of all the crew members are recognised and rewarded, a Hotel Service Charge is automatically added to each guest' shipboard account on a daily basis.
At the time of printing, the Hotel Service Charge for suites is $16 per guest per day, and $14.50 per guest per day for other staterooms. The charges are subject to change without notice.
