This from the HollandAmerica Blog website:
Exciting news, blog fans! It was announced today that Holland America Line will build another ship for delivery in fall 2015.
The 99,000-ton vessel will be built by Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri at their Marghera Yard, near Venice. Fincantieri has built fourteen Holland America Line ships. The new ship will accommodate 2,660 guests in lower berths and will be the first in a new Pinnacle class of vessels.
I'm almost sorry to see HAL doing such a big ship . . . one of the best things about HAL is the smaller ship intimacy. I had a fight getting DH onto the Zuiderdam with 2000 passengers. Howsomever - seems like lots of good buzz.
