Koningsdam

Holland America Line’s new Koningsdam has earned a perfect score of 100 on its first United States Public Health inspection conducted by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

The Koningsdam’s first unannounced U.S.P.H. inspection was held Dec. 20, 2016, during a call at San Juan, Puerto Rico.

“A new class of ship means many firsts for our crew in managing operations on board, and we couldn’t be more proud of everyone on Koningsdam who worked diligently to earn a perfect score for the ship’s first public health inspection in the United States,” said Orlando Ashford, president of Holland America Line. “We’re doing very well on our U.S.P.H. inspections, and we’re going to continue to focus on maintaining the highest standards across our fleet. Congratulations to the officers and staff of Koningsdam for this well-earned accomplishment.”

In 2016 five additional Holland America Line ships previously received perfect scores, including ms Maasdam, ms Veendam, ms Noordam, ms Eurodam and ms Westerdam. Four ships earned scores of 99, including ms Nieuw Amsterdam on Dec. 22. Eurodam was the first ship in company history to receive 10 consecutive perfect USPH scores when it received its inspection last March.
