Holland America: HAL goes back to Bermuda

After an absence of two years, Holland America Line’s Veendam will return to Bermuda in 2015, but with a number of seven-night sailings from Boston, rather than New York. Unlike many of the larger ships calling at the British Overseas Territory, Veendam is small enough to dock at Front Street in the capital, Hamilton. In the past two years the ship has been operating on Canadian and NewEngland cruises, largely between Boston and Quebec.

Meanwhile, on 4 March the first steel was cut at Fincantieri’s Marghera yard for the prototype ship in Holland America Line’s so-called Pinnacle Class. With a provisional gross tonnage of 99,500, she will be the company’s largest ever ship, and the 15th to be built for them by Fincantieri. To be delivered in February 2016, she will carry 2,660 lower berth passengers and have a maximum capacity of 3,152 and havea length of 300m.
