30 facts for 30 days

Cruise Weekly - - News -

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.
