Holland America Line unveils new pool plans

Date Posted: 05 Dec 2008
Category:
Holland America Line has announced plans to offer a new resort-style pool area on five of its vessels.

As part of the cruise line's $200 million Signature of Excellence scheme, the ms Statendam, ms Maasdam, ms Ryndam, ms Veendam and ms Rotterdam will each have a new pool and lounge zone known as The Retreat.

The area will comprise a shallow pool with 44 lounge chairs, as well as a number of built-in benches, which enable guests to relax with their legs in the pool.

Commenting on the plans, Richard D Meadows, executive vice president of sales, marketing and guest programmes, said: "The Retreat is a totally new approach for us to this area of the ship.

"We're creating an area where guests can relax outside in a sophisticated environment, and we're adding other fun and convenient features such as a whirlpool, a band and DJ stand and even a pizzeria."

Guests can also enjoy pool-side movies, with a large LED screen and sound system showing films throughout the day.

Other upgrades being made within the vessels include the addition of a number of new staterooms.

"I booked my first ever cruise on Tuesday 5th September 2017. After lengthy searching and much deliberation we booked through Iglu. So far, I am incredibly happy I booked with Iglu. This being our first cruise Debi proved very helpful. I was [also] very impressed with the level of assistance offered by Connie. She answered my questions and put my mind at rest. I am very impressed with all aspects of dealing with Iglu and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support. "

"Leighanne has been excellent dealing with my various queries this year. She has been kind and informative and obtained what i think is a good deal for me in October. She is persistent and very informative, so even when my 1st deal fell through I felt confident enough to approach her for this present Crystal cruise...”
