Pinnacle-Class ship to showcase reconfigured family staterooms and enlarged
Seattle, Wash., Mar. 15, 2018 —
Holland America Line's Nieuw
Statendam is set to debut in December 2018; and when the ship sets
sail from the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy it will feature distinct
stateroom enhancements. The newest 2,666-guest Pinnacle-Class ship will have
eight more staterooms than sister-ship Koningsdam,
and all categories have been reimagined from top to bottom to showcase more
thoughtful touches and innovative additions.
Among the most noticeable enhancements is the redesigned Pinnacle Suite — the
largest on the ship — as well as reconfigured Family Staterooms. However, Nieuw Statendam still
displays all stateroom hallmarks introduced on Koningsdam, including single-cruiser
accommodations, as well as a wider range of suite configurations.
"As with every new ship, we've listened to guest feedback and made our own
assessments that have led to exciting changes to Nieuw Statendam that will enhance our
stateroom experience across every category," said Orlando Ashford, Holland
America Line's president. "Staterooms should be a sanctuary for our guests, and
they are going to appreciate the elegance, functionality and extra-special touches
to be found on our newest ship."
Nieuw Statendam adds
five more ocean-view and three more interior staterooms, bringing the total
stateroom count to 1,339. The ship features 103 ocean-view and 280 interior
staterooms, ranging from 225 to 266 square feet. The ship will have 851
verandah or verandah spa accommodations, bringing the total staterooms that
have a verandah, including suites, to 912.
The 32 family ocean-view staterooms range from 222 to 231 square feet and have
been reconfigured to feature more living space to spread out and relax.
Accommodating up to five guests, family staterooms offer special amenities
including two bathrooms and extra closet space. The 12 single ocean-view
staterooms for solo cruisers range from 127 to 172 square feet and are located
on the forward main deck.
Aboard Nieuw Statendam,
suites offer larger, more luxurious accommodations. A grand Pinnacle Suite is
an expansive 1,290 square feet with a bedroom, living room, dining area,
dressing room and private verandah with whirlpool. Nieuw Statendam's Pinnacle Suite was
reconfigured to offer an open-concept design with the living room and dining
area in one expansive space. Guests are greeted by a spacious grand entrance,
refreshed color scheme and luxe touches like custom furniture and a
Forty-three Neptune Suites and two Neptune Spa Suites range from 465 to a
generous 855 square feet. Guests in these accommodations (as well as the
Pinnacle Suite) have access to the exclusive Neptune Lounge, a private place to
relax, socialize with other suite guests and enjoy the personalized service of
a concierge. Nieuw
Statendam's Neptune Lounge was enlarged to allow for additional
seating and more windows, giving a feeling of expanded openness. The fleetwide
lounges provide worktables, a large screen television, a library, sofas and
chairs, and complimentary refreshments throughout the day.
The 14 Signature Suites are up to 400 square feet in size, and the 104 Vista
Suites range from 260 to 356 square feet. Signature and Vista suite guests
receive many special amenities, including oversized bath towels, fresh flowers,
a pillow menu, mini bar and one-touch phone concierge service.
Guests looking to focus on health and wellness during the cruise can book a Spa
Suite or Verandah Spa, Outside Spa or Inside Spa stateroom, conveniently
located near the Greenhouse Spa & Salon, and come with yoga mats for use
during the voyage and an iPod docking station.
With sophisticated décor and amenities, suites and staterooms aboard Nieuw Statendam are
welcoming sanctuaries featuring a host of modern details such as bedside USB
ports, customized wood cabinets and luxurious frameless glass shower doors.
Additional amenities found in all suites and staterooms include Holland America
Line's signature Mariner's Dream bed with finely woven cotton linens; plush
bathrobes for use during the voyage; a premium massage showerhead; flat-panel
TV with video-on-demand; mini fridge; complimentary fresh fruit on request; and

About Nieuw Statendam
Due for delivery Dec. 1, 2018, Nieuw
Statendam currently is under construction at Fincantieri's Marghera
shipyard in Italy. The 2,666-guest, 99,500-ton ship will reflect the ongoing
evolution of Holland America Line. From familiar elements that reflect a rich
heritage and classic style to state-of-the-art enhancements that chart a bold
new course forward, guests on board Nieuw
Statendam will delight in details that are artfully inspired and
perfectly presented to create the ultimate Pinnacle-class experience.
While much of the ship's design will be similar to Koningsdam, the first Pinnacle Class
ship, Nieuw Statendam
will have exclusive public spaces and its own style created by leading
hospitality designer Adam D. Tihany and designer and architect Bjørn
Storbraaten. The ship will feature all of the hallmarks of Pinnacle-Class
design: grand, light-filled spaces; visual drama; and sumptuous interiors
inspired by the fluid curves of musical instruments.
Holland America Line's first ship to be called Statendam sailed in 1898, and this will
be the sixth ship in the company's history to carry the name. In combining the
Dutch word for "new" with the classic "Statendam,"
Holland America Line celebrates the company's past, present and future.
