July 2010 saw the arrival of Holland America Line's ship the Nieuw Amsterdam. She was the 11th Holland America ship to be launched by a member of the Dutch royal family, with Princess Máxima naming her on the 4th July in Venice.

The Signatures Class ship was built at Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard and the 86,000-ton ship, carries 2,106 passengers. The interior design and art collection has been influenced by the history and glamour of New York City, formally know as Nieuw Amsterdam.

Along with ms Eurodam, the ms Nieuw Amsterdam has been designed to further the image of the premium brand and to launch new concepts onboard. These include the premium wine tasting lounge at Explorer's Lounge Bar, the pan-Asian Tamarind restaurant, and the wonderful panoramic views from the Silk Den lounge. The ship also includes an internet cafe powered by the New York Times, the Explorations Cafe, and the innovative Culinary Arts Centre presented by Food & Wine magazine.
