30 facts for 30 days
HOLLAND America Line has marked the 30-day countdown until the arrival of its Pinnacle Class Nieuw Statendam ship by releasing 30 fun facts about the new addition.
Among the interesting tidbits are that Nieuw Statendam will visit 75 ports during her first year, a special dedication ceremony will be held at Fort Lauderdale in Florida on 02 Feb, and the ship will sail more than 92,723 nautical miles in her first 12 months.
Slightly quirkier facts include the vessel being longer than 12 blue whales, that 4,200 cups of coffee will be served on a seven-day cruise, and it would take 7,067 bottles of Champagne to fill Nieuw Statendam’s Lido Pool.
The vessel joins the HAL fleet on 01 Dec where she will spend her inaugural season servicing the Caribbean.
