TRAVELLING IS THE WAY FOR EXPERIENCE

NIEUW AMSTERDAM

MS Nieuw Amsterdam is a Signature class cruise ship for Holland America Line. Nieuw Amsterdam is the 81st ship to enter Holland America's service and the second largest Holland America ship to date.

New features on Nieuw Amsterdam include a Pan-Asian restaurant, an African-theme to the Explorer's Lounge, an Italian specialty restaurant and a redesigned atrium and show lounge. Ten cabins have floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows. Eighty-six percent of the cabins are on the outside, and 67 percent have balconies. She also has dynamic positioning abilities, and is powered by six diesel generators and propelled by Azipod propulsion technology like her older sister Eurodam.

Holland America Line took the option on building this new sister ship for Eurodam for the 2010 cruising season. She was completed and she sailed on her first set of sea trials on 16 May 2010 in preparation for her maiden voyage on 4 July 2010.

From April to October 2010 and 2011 the ship will visit the Mediterranean and in winter the ship operates in the Caribbean.
