Pago Pago in American Samoa will see the maiden call of Holland America Line’s Noordam on Flag Day, April 17.

The ship, carrying 1,918 passengers and 800 crew, is on a 36-night night cruise from Sydney to Vancouver.

She will arrive at 10.00 a.m. from Dravuni, Fiji, and depart at 6.00 p.m. for Honolulu. The ship will return to Pago Pago on October 14, followed a few days later by her sister ship, the Amsterdam, an annual visitor to the American Samoa.
