Holland America Line to make 'fleet enhancements'

Date Posted: 04 Sep 2008
Luxury cruise provider Holland America Line has announced plans to invest $200 million (£112 million) in improving five of its vessels.

Speaking last week, Holland America Line said that it would invest the money as part of its ongoing "Signature of Excellence" initiative.

According to Cruise Talk Central, five ships – including the ms Rotterdam, ms Ryndam and ms Maasdam – will undergo extensive refurbishment, with plans to construct new staterooms, swimming pools and venues.

To date the cruise line has invested over $500 million in improving its luxury fleet.

Commenting on the news, Richard Meadows, Executive Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Guest Services, said: "In an era where cruise lines are building ships to carry more than 5,000 passengers, Holland America Line remains focused on mid-sized vessels.

"These enhancements will blend the latest innovations for premium travel into our ships, creating a deluxe experience that is unparalleled."

Mr Meadows added that the cruise line would continue to raise the bar in terms of the level of service it offers to its guests.

Holland America Line has been serving cruise passengers for over 135 years and currently operates a fleet of 14 liners.
