Holland America’s new Pinnacle-class ship locks in European homeports

Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam will homeport at Amsterdam, Netherlands, and Civitavecchia, Italy, from May until the end of October 2019.

Launched in December and under construction at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard in Italy, the 99,500-tonne Nieuw Statendam is the second Pinnacle-class ship for Holland America Line, after Koningsdam was launched in April 2016.

Almost 300 metres long, Nieuw Statendam will have accommodation for up to 2,666 passengers when it is delivered on December 1.

Nieuw Statendam will have exclusive public spaces and its style created by Adam D. Tihany and designer-architect Bjorn Storbraaten, including interiors inspired by the fluid curves of musical instruments.

Holland America Line’s first ship to be called Statendam sailed in 1898, and this will be the sixth ship in the company’s history to carry the name.
