ms Nieuw Statendam Review
Review of ms Nieuw Statendam
The 2018-built MS Nieuw Statendam cruise ship is the second Pinnacle-Class vessel in the Holland America fleet, with sisterships the fleetmates Koningsdam (2016) and Rotterdam (2021) and also Cunard's Queen Anne. The new Statendam is HAL's 16th vessel built by Fincantieri. Pinnacle-Class are the newest and largest liners in HAL's fleet.
History - construction and ownership
Holland America Line (HAL) is a Seattle-based cruise company owned by Carnival Corporation (shipowner). Between 1873-1989, HAL was a Dutch cargo and passenger shipping company operating regular Transatlantic crossings between Holland and the Americas. HAL was founded in 1873 as "Dutch-American Steamship Company" headquartered in Rotterdam Netherlands. In 1989, HAL was acquired by Carnival Corporation for around EUR 530 million. Among the company's assets are the Westmark hotel chain (Alaska-Yukon), Worldwide Shore Services (warehouses-logistics) and Half Moon Cay (Caribbean private island).
The 2700-passenger ship Nieuw Statendam was scheduled for delivery in November 2018. The vessel's name (translated from Dutch as "New Statendam") was announced on May 23, 2016. It honors MS Statendam (now Vasco de Gama) - the 5th Statendam-named liner since the company's establishment. HAL's other "new" named ship is Nieuw Amsterdam (2010).
Decks and Cabins
MS Nieuw Statendam staterooms (1331 total, in 35 grades) include 164 Suites, 748 Balcony, 147 Oceanviews (including 32x Family Oceanview and 12x Studios/single cabins), 280 Inside. Most cabins as sized ~180 m2 (17 m2). Most cabin balconies are sized 50 ft2 / 5 m2. Nearly 70% of the ship's passenger accommodations have private step-out balconies. Wheelchair-accessible cabins are 27. The largest accommodation is the Penthouse/Pinnacle Suite (970 ft2 / 90 m2, with terrace sized 320 ft2 / 30 m2 and fitted with an outdoor Jacuzzi).
The boat has 13 passenger decks, of which 8 are with cabins.
Club Orange is an exclusive (Suite-only) venue integrated into HAL's "Club Orange" program providing exclusive amenities to passengers booked in the Suite categories Neptune and Pinnacle. Bonus perks by the Club Orange program include:
- priority services (check-in, disembarkation, tendering, dining reservations)
- 24-hour concierge service (assistance, information, reservations)
- exclusive dining venue (Club Orange Restaurant/deck 2) serving complimentary Pinnacle Grill breakfast and Dining Room dinner, plus exclusive dishes
- dedicated Concierge Desk (Guest Services and Tours)
- room service (a la carte breakfast menu with complimentary gourmet dishes - including smoked salmon, steak and eggs)
- sparkling wine (embarkation day), Club Orange tote bag, premium bathrobes (cabin use, available for monogramming and purchasing)
Club Orange Restaurant occupies the area of the former "Culinary Arts Center". Culinary Arts Center was a premium dinner-only restaurant (cover charge $39 pp, unlimited wine included) via partnership with the “Food & Wine Magazine”. This open-kitchen/show-kitchen venue was used daily for professional cooking shows, culinary classes and workshops (cooking and cocktail) presented in demonstration kitchens. In the evenings, the venue transformed into “Dinner at the Culinary Arts Center”. This specialty dining concept ("America's Test Kitchen") provided a top-quality gourmet experience - the ship’s chefs prepared dishes in the demonstration kitchen while the guests enjoyed each course with wine pairing. At the entry, there were 9 interactive TV displays allowing guests to explore personal lives, special recipes, cooking secrets and tips from famous food and wine industry celebrities. By Holland America Line’s partnership with Koppert Cress (microgreen specialist), the Culinary Arts Center had a live garden to grow fresh ingredients. This enabled the guests to enjoy farm-to-table items from the dinner menu (veggie fare, 5 choices, dessert, cheese plate). The ingredients were displayed in a glass-enclosed garden area and harvested just before being served. Once sown, the seedlings grew for up to 2 weeks. The list of microgreens integrated in the recipes included garlic, mustard, licorice.
Shipboard dining options - Food and Drinks
Ship's 2-level main restaurant venue serves open-seating breakfast and lunch, as well as a blend of flexible and set-seating restaurant-style meals at dinner. Breakfast hours in the MDR vary but start as early as 7 am on port days and 8 am on sea days, wrapping up by 9:30 am. Breakfast fare includes bread, cereals, French toast, blueberry pancakes, corned beef hash, egg dishes and yogurt parfaits. Portions are on the smaller side, so better opt for a second pastry. Lunch in the MDR is typically limited to an hour per day (from noon to 1 pm on sea days; closed when the ship is in port for an entire day). If you see a line of guests waiting to be seated, do not be deterred as the line moves fast and the tables are plenty. Lunch fare includes sandwiches, soups, light salads, fish and heartier entrees.
Holland America is famous for its exceptional dining experiences on every voyage, but the line’s newest ships ms Koningsdam and ms Nieuw Statendam boast even more culinary options. Dining Room is a 2-deck high restaurant featuring an airy and sophisticated ambiance, floor-ceiling windows, curved architectural pillars accentuating the high ceiling, modern glass lighting, chic furnishings (custom-made for the liner). The restaurant's centerpiece is a copper sheath surrounding the 2-story wine tower showcasing an impressive premium wine selection. On the menu are HAL's classic selections, signature dishes, regionally inspired cuisine, Culinary Council recipes from the world-renowned chefs who compose the group, including Council Chairman and Master Chef Rudi Sodamin and international chefs David Burke, Elizabeth Falkner, Jacques Torres, Jonnie Boer and Mark Best.
In addition to Dining Room Restaurant, Nieuw Statendam offers fine dining in alternative restaurants, including redesigned Lido Market (with themed food stations), a new French seafood brasserie Rudi’s Sel de Mer, suite-exclusive dining (Club Orange Restaurant), Canaletto (Italian), Tamarind (pan-Asian/sushi bar) and Pinnacle Grill (steakhouse/seafood restaurant).
BLEND is a glass-enclosed winery room (capacity 10 seats) where are hosted daily wine blending sessions. These are reservations-only events (90 min sessions, $129 cover charge) with sommelier service. The BLEND venue is via partnership with the winemaker Chateau Ste Michelle Winery (Woodinville Washington). Wine-tasting events are seminar-like (led by a wine expert). Each session includes a sampling of 5 red wines (single-vineyard) later combined with different vintages into a personal blend. After the event, you can bottle and take your newly created wine and consume it at the ship’s restaurants or in the stateroom. At the BLEND room all guests are allowed to see the wines offered in the Pinnacle Grill and Sel de Mer, and also to choose their vintage from the impressive selection of premium wines.
Follows the complete list of ms Nieuw Statendam restaurants and food bars.
- Pinnacle Grill (reservations-only seafood/steakhouse restaurant with fine wines selection; free for passengers under 12 yo). The venue transforms into “De Librije” (US$69-89) from time to time, inspired by the land-based Dutch restaurant De Librije with two Michelin stars. A wine tasting is included with the meal (four 2 oz. pours). A wine pairing is also available for an additional US$20 per person (four 5 oz. pours).
- Rudi’s Sel De Mer is dinner-only specialty restaurant serving French seafood. In comparison to Koningsdam's original Sel De Mer (upgraded during drydock 2018), the restaurant on Nieuw Statendam is by design larger (54 seats) but retains the curving shape and walnut wood-made, accordion-like column structure. The back wall is decorated with porcelain plates, all of which are decorated with Chef Rudi’s Food Faces culinary pop art (via a partnership with Bernardaud - French porcelain masters).

ms Nieuw Statendam Wiki
Holland America Line's newest ship is sister to Koningsdam - a new class vessel launched in May 2016). The "Nieuw Statendam" ship name (translated from Dutch as "New Statendam") was announced on May 23, 2016. It honours MS Statendam (now Vasco de Gama) - the 5th Statendam-named vessel since the company's establishment in the distant 1898. HAL's other "new"/"nieuw" named ships are Nieuw Amsterdam (2010 - the 4th Amsterdam-named HAL liner since company’s establishment in 1898) and Nieuw Rotterdam (2021).
The vessel (Fincantieri Marghera Yard number 6244) is powered by four MAK marine diesel engines (model 12V43C) with combined power output 50,4 MW. The propulsion system is based on two ABB Azipods (azimuth thrusters) with combined output 28 MW.
Like Koningsdam, Nieuw Statendam ship design is by the companies "Tihany Design” (New York, USA) and "Yran Storbraaten Architects AS” (Oslo, Norway). The vessel features a 2-level theatre (named "World Stage"), 3-decks high Atrium, "Digital Workshop" (powered by Microsoft), numerous dining options (including some new for HAL), signature lounges and bars, expanded kids and teen facilities "Greenhouse Spa" (fleet's largest), the adults-only retreat "Sea View".
On May 23, 2016, HAL officially announced the name for its second Pinnacle-class vessel - the company's 6th to carry the name "Statendam". On July 12, 2016, was the steel-cutting ceremony at Fincantieri's Palermo shipyard, where the first block was built before moving it to Marghera where the ship was actually constructed (assembled).
On March 20, 2017, at Marghera Shipyard (near Venice Italy) was held vessel's keel-laying ceremony. Its first building block (length 11,3 m, width 34,8 m, weight 260 tons, part of the midship section) was placed.
On December 6, 2017, the vessel was launched (floated out from drydock) at the shipyard. The special event also included the traditional coin ceremony, during which a silver dollar coin was weld on the ship. Launching ceremony's godmother was Anne Marie Bartels (HAL "President’s Club" loyalty program member). The event was attended by Keith Taylor (HAL's Fleet Operations EVP) and Antonio Quintano (Marghera Shipyard's Director).
On June 13, 2018, HAL announced ship's godmother - Oprah Winfrey (US media tycoon, talk show host, producer and philanthropist). The official christening ceremony was on February 2 (2019) held in Port Everglades (Fort Lauderdale). The event was attended by ~1000 people and watched online by nearly 1 million.
Sea trials were in 2 sets (August 10-12 and Aug 18-22) - both completed successfully. During sea trials were tested performances on machinery, engines and all systems.
The cruise liner was officially delivered to HAL on November 29, 2018. The ceremony was attended by Edoardo Rixi (Italy's vice minister of transport and infrastructure), Micky Arison (Carnival Corporation chairman), Arnold Donald (Carnival Corporation's President and CEO), Stein Kruse (Holland America's CEO), Orlando Ashford Holland America's President), Giampiero Massolo (Fincantieri chairman) and Giuseppe Bono (Fincantieri's CEO). Nieuw Statendam was Fincantieri's 87 cruise liner (built since 1990), with another 53 on order or under construction.
Ship's senior officers are Sybe de Boer (Ship Master / Captain, Dutch, with HAL since 1994), Kevin Beirnaert (Staff Captain, with HAL since 2006), Don Habets (Hotel Director, with HAL since 2002), Eric van Loenen (Chief Engineer, with HAL since 2002) and Dolf Kramer (Environmental Officer, with HAL since 2004).
