Holland America Launches 80th Passenger Ship

When you're looking for a cruise experience that can be described as "excellent," "exceptional" and "luxurious" Holland America can certainly provide. Since 1872, this premium cruise line has offered distinctive tours to some of the most unique cities in the world. However, it's during this year (2008) that Holland America Cruise Line will stretch to achieve new heights.

With an entirely new class of vessels - Signature Class - Holland America will launch its 80th passenger ship: Eurodam. Scheduled for her maiden voyage during summer 2008, Eurodam will be impressive in size, stature and amenities. This award-winning cruise line is sure to garner a few more accolades thanks to this stunning and innovative new ship.

Something To Look Forward To

New to Holland America is a 144-seat topside Pan-Asian restaurant. Guests will delight in the cuisine as well as the scenery. The restaurant and 50-seat lounge offer panoramic views overlooking the ocean and the pool on the Lido deck.

In addition, a specialty restaurant serving the finest and most authentic Italian cuisine, a new atrium bar, and a new photographic and imaging center will be included on Eurodam.

One of the most exciting additions is an extra deck that allows for 63 new staterooms, 10 of which will have ceiling-to-floor and wall-to-wall panoramic windows.
