Two leading design firms have been selected to create the interior spaces for Holland America Line’s new ship.

The 99,000-ton vessel is due for delivery in February 2016 and will be the first in a new Pinnacle Class of ship.

It will include decors by designer Adam D. Tihany and designer and architect Bjorn Storbraaten.

Tihany will join Storbraaten, who worked with HAL on Eurodam and Nieuw Amsterdam, in designing the ship’s public rooms. Storbraaten also worked on Seabourn Odyssey, Seabourn Sojourn and Seabourn Quest.

The new ship will feature new public areas and dining venues.

The line said several new concepts that have never been seen before on a HAL ship are under development. More details will be revealed as they evolve.

Executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programmes Richard Meadows said: “We are fortunate to bring together such distinguished professionals for our next-generation ship.

“The ambience of a ship is an essential part of the cruise experience and we are confident that Adam, Bjorn and their teams of experienced designers and architects will strike the right balance between contemporary and traditional that is the hallmark of the interiors of Holland America Line ships.”
