Nieuw Statendam

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

Nieuw Statendam, being built at Fincantieri’s shipyard in Sicily, 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 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.

The ship will carry 2,666 guests and feature fine-dining options at alternative restaurants Sel de Mer, a French seafood brasserie, and Tamarind, an Asian fusion concept, in addition to the Grand Dutch Café with traditional Dutch treats and European beer.

Onboard entertainment will include the popular Music Walk area featuring all genres of music showcased in venues including Lincoln Center Stage, Billboard Onboard and the dynamic B.B. King’s Blues Club.

With the 270-degree LED projection at World Stage, show-time performances will immerse the audience in panoramic visual and sound effects.

The ship will also launch with 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 scheduled to depart 5 December, 2018, on her maiden voyage – a 14-day transatlantic crossing to Fort Lauderdale. The ship will then spend the winter season cruising roundtrip from the South Florida port on seven-day Caribbean itineraries, with select three-, four- and 10-day options.
