Ms Prinsendam Arrives in NY

June 3, 2002

The ms Prinsendam, newest vessel in Holland America Line's fleet of 11 premium cruise ships, arrived in New York accompanied by the retired New York City fireboat John J. Harvey. Holland America has nicknamed the 794-passenger, 38,000-ton Prinsendam the "Elegant Explorer" and has refitted the former Seabourn Sun to match the rest of the HAL fleet. Registered in The Netherlands, the 673-foot-long Prinsendam has 344 staterooms, including one penthouse suite, 18 suites, 82 deluxe suites and eight wheelchair-accessible staterooms. Its nine passenger decks encompass 15 public rooms and boutiques as well as a spa and gymnasium, and an alternative restaurant. The ship's inaugural season commences with a trans-Atlantic crossing June 3, followed by northern Europe, west and east Africa, Southeast Asia and Australia/New Zealand cruises ranging in length from 10 to 22 days.
