Nieuw Statendam

Sixth Holland America ship to bear the name Statendam, the first sailing in 1898

Nieuw Statendam, which set sail on her maiden Caribbean voyage on 5 December, 2018, is the second Pinnacle Class ship for Holland America Line, joining Koningsdam which launched in April 2016.

She is the sixth Holland America ship to bear the name Statendam, the first sailing in 1898. In combining the Dutch word for “new” with the classic “Statendam”, Holland America Line is celebrating the company’s past, present and future.

Nieuw Statendam

The 99,500-ton ship, which carries 2,666 guests, is the ultimate expression of the brand’s evolution, with grand light-filled spaces; visual drama; and sumptuous interiors inspired by the fluid curves of musical instruments, created by leading hospitality designer Adam D Tihany and designer and architect Bjorn Storbraaten.

In addition to the stunning Dining Room, guests can delight in specialty restaurants that include newly designed Rudi’s Sel de Mer, a French seafood brasserie; pan-Asian Tamarind, with a new al fresco dining area where guests can enjoy the gentle ocean breeze; Nami Sushi, a new sushi experience within Tamarind; the award-winning Pinnacle Grill; Canaletto, with family-style Italian dining; and the new Club Orange restaurant exclusively for guests in the Club Orange programme.

Onboard entertainment features the innovative Music Walk offering a variety of authentic live musical experiences and genres unlike any other at sea. These include the debut of the new Rolling Stone Rock Room with classic rock hits; Lincoln Center Stage, with chamber music; Billboard Onboard, with chart-topping hits; and the popular B.B. King’s Blues Club, bringing the best of Memphis music to sea.

With the 270-degree LED projection at World Stage and expanded seating on Nieuw Statendam, even more guests will enjoy spectacular performances with panoramic visuals and sound effects.

The ship also features the newly created Exploration Central’s hub located in the Crow’s Nest, now a comprehensive resource and engagement center with interactive screens and a Virtual Bridge.

Nieuw Statendam is spending her first winter season cruising roundtrip from the South Florida port on seven-day Caribbean itineraries, with select three-, four- and 10-day options. She was christened by Oprah Winfrey in Fort Lauderdale on 2 February, 2019.
