Holland America Line’s new ms Eurodam is taking guests to new heights with 56 luxury Spa Staterooms located on the two highest decks of the Signature-class ship. The 2,104-guest Signature-class Eurodam is the first ship in Holland America Line’s fleet to offer spa accommodations.
The Spa Staterooms, so named because of their proximity to the Greenhouse Spa and Salon and special in-room spa amenities, offer their own ambiance, providing unmatched relaxation, privacy and serenity. Located on the Panorama and Observation decks, each room reflects a nature theme with walls of soft earth-tone hues, bright, fresh green accent colors echo nature’s own, organic, fern-like patterns adorn the bed runner and pillows, and charcoal-colored carpeting ties together all the elements. A water feature in each stateroom provides a natural, soothing ambient background sound.
“The spa experience is more compelling for today’s premium vacation experience,” said Richard D. Meadows, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest services. “Our spa staterooms are a result of this trend and we expect them to be popular as more and more of our guests seek the ultimate in relaxation.”
Amenities in the Spa Staterooms include organic cotton bathrobes and slippers, a Burmese teak mat for bath and shower and an invigorating showerhead, as well as a Body Buff Loofah Mitt and aroma therapy bath salts. In addition to standard stateroom furnishings, Spa Staterooms also include an iPod® docking station, a Yoga mat, a pedometer for use aboard ship, Fitness DVD, a no-host minibar stocked with specialty waters, a cut-fruit tray at embarkation and a spa concierge to book treatments.
