MS Amsterdam is a cruise ship owned and operated by Holland America Line and is named for the city of Amsterdam in northern Holland. It is the line's "Pacific Flagship" and is a sister ship to MS Rotterdam. As with Rotterdam, Amsterdam features a multi-million dollar art collection. This includes a three story tall fully functional Astrolabe in the main atrium which took over 15 years to design.[3] The Amsterdam also features a baseball signed by Joe DiMaggio.
