Holland America’s next ship to be called Nieuw Statendam


Nieuw Koningsdam

Holland America Line said its next ship due in 2018 will be named Nieuw Statendam.

HAL officials made the disclosure at the Rotterdam christening ceremony of its latest ship, Koningsdam. Nieuw Statendam will be a sister ship to the 2,650-passenger Koningsdam.

Last year, the 1,258-passenger Statendam was transferred to the fleet of P&O Cruises Australia and renamed the Pacific Eden.

Five previous ships in HAL history have carried the Statendam name.
