Holland America Opens Bookings for New Cruise Ship

Holland America Line has opened bookings for their next cruise ship Nieuw Statendam, the second Pinnacle class ship from the cruise line.

Nieuw Statendam is scheduled to be delivered to the Holland America in Venice on December 1, 2018.  The first voyage will be a 14 day transatlantic sailing from Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy and arrive in Port Everglades for the Caribbean cruise season. 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.

Nieuw Statendam to Offer a Variety of Caribbean Cruises in Winter/Spring 2018-19

From December 2018 through April 2019, Nieuw Statendam will spend its inaugural season exploring the golden beaches and sun-kissed skies of the Caribbean on roundtrip Fort Lauderdale cruises. All Caribbean itineraries include a call at Half Moon Cay, the line’s award-winning private Bahamian island known for its pristine landscapes, exciting shore excursions, exclusive beach cabanas and child-friendly activities.

Nieuw Statendam’s first Caribbean cruise is a four-day itinerary that calls at Half Moon Cay and Key West, Florida, departing Dec. 19. The ship then embarks on a series of seven-day sailings, including a Dec. 23 Holiday cruise that calls at Amber Cove, Dominican Republic; San Juan, Puerto Rico; St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands; and Half Moon Cay. A Dec. 30, 2018, New Year’s cruise departure calls at Half Moon Cay; Ocho Rios, Jamaica; George Town, Grand Cayman; and Cozumel, Mexico. A similar Jan. 6 cruise replaces Ocho Rios with Montego Bay, Jamaica. The ship then sets sail Jan. 13 on a seven-day cruise to Nassau, Bahamas; San Juan, Charlotte Amalie and Half Moon Cay.

Guests looking for an extended Caribbean adventure on Nieuw Statendam can depart Jan. 20 on a 10-day cruise to the ABC Islands with calls at Half Moon Cay; Grand Turk, Turks & Caicos; Amber Cove, Dominican Republic; Kralendijk, Bonaire; Willemstad, Curaçao; and Oranjestad, Aruba.

For a quick get-away, a three-day cruise departs roundtrip Fort Lauderdale Jan. 30 and includes a call at Half Moon Cay, Bahamas.

For the remainder of the season, the ship will feature western and eastern Caribbean itineraries: the first calls at Half Moon Cay, Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, while the second features calls at Grand Turk, San Juan, St. Thomas and Half Moon Cay — with the March 17 departure swapping Amber Cove for Grand Turk.

  1. Hope they make some changes on the new ship. We were on the Koningsdam last Sept. Very unhappy there was no library, very narrow prom. deck with no deck chairs,dinning room should separate fixed dining in different area( upstairs) and anytime on the lower level. Several nights we arrived for the late sitting and our table was occupied, no dance floor in the Ocean Bar……..
    We are 3 star mariners (should teach 4 star this year. We love Holland but prefer the other ships.
