Yes they do.

They have the "S" class of ships. Statendam, Maasdam, Ryndam and maybe one other.

They also have the "R" class: Rotterdam, Amsterdam, Volendam........

The Vista class: Zuiderdam, Oosterdam, Noordam,....

There are probably some I've missed but that will give you an idea of what they have. I have only sailed on S class ships. Ryndam and Statendam. They are older and smaller ships but I found them great for a port intensive itinerary. They also have some of the largest inside cabins. If it wasn't for the 180 square foot cabin we had on Statendam, I would still be in therapy for inside cabin psychosis.

Take care,

Hi Aero Girl & Mike

the 4th S class is Veendam
other Vista is Westerdam & Zaandam

Signature class;
The newest and largest (most pax) Niew Amsterdam & Eurodam although they are same size as Vista length/width (same hull) but they have an extra deck and the fabulous Tamarind Restaurant (Pan Asian) & the Retreat Cabanas (which we rented for the week and was worth every penny 300.00 for the week maybe more now as this was 3 years ago. Also have the Lido Cabana, but I would not want one of those.

We enjoyed Eurodam very much, but is more of a relaxed cruise, (We just relaxed in our Cabana) Was not much happening activity wise, (Bingo, computer course thing, and cooking demo) on sea days which were kind of long for us. Would have went bonkers with 3 sea days in a row, lol
