Holland America Line’s Nieuw Statendam Completes Sea Trials

Holland America Line's Nieuw Statendam, the second Pinnacle Class ship in the fleet, returned to Fincantieri's Marghera, Italy, shipyard in Italy on August 22, after successfully completing two sets of sea trials off the coast.

Nieuw Statendam left Marghera on August 10 and performed the first set of sea trials over two days before going into dry dock at Fincantieri's Trieste shipyard. The ship sailed its second sea trials August 18, making its way back to Marghera August 22 for the finishing touches to be completed.

"The sea trials are a highly anticipated milestone for any newbuild because it takes us one step closer to delivery, and we are thrilled that Nieuw Statendam gave a strong performance out in open water," said Orlando Ashford, president, Holland America Line.
