Holland America's Latest Addition Named Ship of the Year by the WOCLS

March 1, 2011 By: Sophia Bruneau

Holland America Line's latest addition to the fleet, ms Nieuw Amsterdam, was voted Ship of the Year for 2011 by members of the World Ocean & Cruise Liner Society (WOCLS).  

The award was announced in the February issue of Ocean & Cruise News, the society's 16-page monthly publication.

"In order for a ship to become our 'Ship of the Year,' it takes an exceptional consistency of high marks in each of the grading categories," wrote Thomas Cassidy, editor of Ocean and Cruise News.  "Our congratulations go to Holland America Line and the crew of the Nieuw Amsterdam on delivering the highest degree of passenger satisfaction to our members."

"Nieuw Amsterdam quickly has become a guest favorite since it debuted, and knowing that our ship stood out and was recognized by the most experienced and dedicated cruisers is a true honor," said Richard D. Meadows, CTC, executive vice president, marketing, sales and guest programs.

"With each new ship we introduce more innovative features, amenities and partnerships that enable us continually to add value to our product and brand, and our guests truly appreciate that."

One hundred fifty-one ships from all major cruise lines were rated in the survey, which is based on passenger satisfaction in categories ranging from culinary and service to itineraries and shipboard activities and entertainment.  

From 1982, when Ship of the Year surveys began, Holland America Line ships have received top honors ten times.
