MS Koningsdam is a Dutch cruise ship operated by Holland America Line (HAL), a division of Carnival Corporation. The class leader of HAL's Pinnacle class ships, she is by far the largest ship ever to be constructed for HAL. She is also the first HAL ship to bear the name Koningsdam, which honours Willem-Alexander, the first King of the Netherlands in over a century.[1]

Koningsdam was delivered by her builder, Fincantieri, on March 31, 2016. She departed from Civitavecchia, Italy, on her maiden voyage on April 8, 2016, and was the subject of a gala christening by Queen Máxima of the Netherlands in Rotterdam on May 20, 2016.[2]
