All Holland America Line ships are back in service, with the Westerdam sailing from Seattle to Alaska.
The 1,964-passenger ship will remain in Alaska until the end of September before returning to Australia for a season of Sydney departures.
In early 2023, Westerdam will sail to Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan, China, and the Philippines before returning to Alaska for another season.
Eurodam, Koningsdam, Nieuw Amsterdam, Nieuw Statendam, Noordam, Oosterdam, Rotterdam, Zaandam, and Zuiderdam (In photo) have all resumed service since Holland America Line resumed cruising in July 2021.
The Dutch government has renewed Volendam’s charter to accommodate Ukrainian families, and she will sail Mediterranean itineraries from Italy beginning in September.
Gus Antorcha, president of HAL, stated: ”Today is an emotional day that’s been more than a year in the making, and Westerdam is the final puzzle piece to make our fleet of ships in service complete.
“Every ribbon cutting has brought us one step closer to today, and everyone in the Holland America Line family worked with passion and determination to achieve this milest one. We are excited to welcome guests and overwhelmed with what today means for our company.”
