This is a cruise ship for grown-ups — especially those who love music. Launched in December 2018 as Holland America Line's second Pinnacle Class ship (following 2017’s Koningsdam and followed by 2022’s Rotterdam), 2,668-guest Nieuw Statendam takes beloved old-school basics that appeal to mature cruisers (think formal nights, traditional afternoon tea, and live music you can dance to), and adds a sophisticated, modern polish. The result? An onboard experience that hits the mark with older Baby Boomers while also leaving room to grow with younger Boomers and older Gen-Xers in their late forties and fifties. Also appealing are the sleek and uncluttered décor, the two pool areas on deck 9 (Lido with its retractable roof and Sea View located aft and offering plenty of sun), The Retreat on deck 12 (only for guests who’ve rented cabanas), and art curated by Miami-based YSA Designs that’s refreshingly contemporary and music-inspired.
