Home-based at the Port of Tampa in the winter, ms Ryndam is a favorite among older folks along the west coast of Florida, many of whom are repeat guests. The smaller ship size, personable staff, reliable service and consistently high-quality cuisine combine to make ms Ryndam a good choice for a 7-night Western Caribbean cruise. In Europe, with the wide array of itineraries available, many guests will combine two or three 7-night cruises to for a voyage lasting 14 or 21 days.

ms Ryndam OVERVIEW

A midsize ship, Holland Ameica Line's ms Ryndam could be considered small by today's megaship standards. The ship boasts nearly $2 million in artwork displayed throughout, with some pieces dating to the 17th century.

More modern enhancements include new Egyptian cotton towels and luxury mattresses in all the staterooms and the addition of 16 spa staterooms during the most recent refurbishment, which took place in 2010. The latter are located near the Greenhouse Spa and Salon, of course, and offer amenities like yoga mats, a specialty water cooler and an iPod docking station.

One of guests' favorite features on this cruise ship is a central lounge called Mix, which features three themed specialty bars, one for martinis, one for single malts and ales, and one for champagne.
