Holland America Line to Call Next Pinnacle Class Ship Ryndam

Ryndam is due for delivery in May 2021.


Holland America Line announced that its next Pinnacle Class ship will be called Ryndam, “in a nod to its long line of historic ships,” the company said.

The newbuild, due for delivery in May 2021, will be the fourth ship in the company's history to carry the name. The first Ryndam was part of the Holland America Line fleet from 1901 to 1929. In 1927, Ryndam I became the first Holland America Line ship to sail a world cruise. The second Ryndam served from 1951 to 1973, and the third sailed in the fleet from 1993 through 2015, when it was transferred to sister brand P&O Australia and now cruises as Pacific Aria.

Ryndam will be similar to sister ships Koningsdam and Nieuw Statendam, measuring 99,500 tons and carrying 2,662 guests.

As the third in the series, Ryndam will feature enhanced Pinnacle Class amenities and innovations, such as partnerships with O, The Oprah Magazine and America's Test Kitchen to entertainment venues like the Rolling Stone Rock Room and Billboard Onboard.

The steel cutting for Ryndam was held March 13, 2019 at Fincantieri's shipyard in Marghera, Italy. This will be the 17th ship constructed for Holland America Line by the Italian shipbuilder, which most recently delivered Nieuw Statendam.
