Holland America Line has revealed details on its new ship, Nieuw Statendam, set to debut in December 2018. When the ship sets sail from the Fincantieri shipyard in Marghera, Italy, it will offer distinct stateroom enhancements. The 2,666-guest Pinnacle-Class ship will have eight more staterooms than sister-ship Koningsdam, and all categories have been reimagined with new amenities and design changes.
Among the notables 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.
Nieuw Statendam adds five more ocean-view and three more interior staterooms, bringing the total stateroom count to 1,339. The ship has 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 ocean-view family staterooms range from 222 to 231 square feet and have been reconfigured to offer more living space. 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. The 1,290-square-foot Pinnacle Suite includes a bedroom, living room, dining area, dressing room and private verandah with whirlpool. The Pinnacle Suite was reconfigured to offer an open-concept design with the living room and dining area in one space. Guests are greeted by a spacious grand entrance, a new color scheme and luxury touches like custom furniture and a double-sided television.
Forty-three Neptune Suites and two Neptune Spa Suites range from 465 to 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 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, and 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.
The suites and staterooms aboard Nieuw Statendam include modern details such as bedside USB ports, customized wood cabinets, and frameless glass shower doors. Additional amenities found in all suites and staterooms include Holland America Line’s signature Mariner's Dream bed ; plush bathrobes ; a massage showerhead; flat-panel TV with video-on-demand; mini fridge; complimentary fresh fruit on request; fragrant soaps, lotions, shampoo, and other bath amenities from Elemis Aromapure.
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, located near the Greenhouse Spa & Salon, and come with yoga mats for use during the voyage and an iPod docking station.
