Fifth 84,000-Ton Vessel for Holland America


Holland America Line has signed an agreement with Italian shipyard Fincantieri Cantieri Navali S.p.A. for the construction of a fifth 84,000-ton vessel in a new series of vessels for the premium line. The fifth ship is expected to enter service in 2005. The new 1,800-passenger ship will cost approximately US $400 million and will be constructed at Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard.

Like its sister ships, the new 84,000-ton vessel will feature "exterior elevators," which are located on both the port and starboard side of the vessel and will vertically transverse 10 decks to provide guests with panoramic sea views.

The new vessel will include a unique propulsion system that includes a full-scale diesel-electric power plant, backed up by a gas turbine as an additional power source. The vessel will be able to operate on either diesel or gas turbine power. The ships will also use the Azipod propulsion system, allowing for greater maneuverability and enhanced operating efficiencies.
