Holland America Line builds a new cruiseliner under the Dutch Flag. This ship, named RYNDAM, will be delivered in May 2021 by Fincantieri, Italy. She is a sistership of the recently delivered NIEUW STATENDAM. The ship measures close to 100,000 GT and can host 2,662 passengers plus 1,035 crew. This new investment is the third one in the so-called Pinnacle-class series. HAL brings her ships under NL Flag for historical reasons, thus proudly emphasizing ‘Holland’ in her company name. According to HAL the Dutch Flag is a quality register. The shipowner sails mainly with Dutch officers. Currently the company has fourteen ships under NL-Flag.
