"Holland America Line has been a primary customer for Port Everglades since the mid-1930s. This winter season, we will welcome 10 Holland America cruise ships, and have the distinct honor of being the host port for the Nieuw Statendam’s official naming,” said Port Everglades Chief Executive and Port Director Steven Cernak. Neiuw Statendam will be named on February 2, 2019 at Port Everglades.

The ship sailed to Port Everglades on a transatlantic voyage from Civitavecchia, Italy, which began on December 5.
