Fincantieri laid the keel for Holland America Line's Nieuw Statendam at festivities in Marghera on Monday.

The first building block, 11.3 meters long, 34.8 meters wide and weighing about 260 tons, is part of the ship's central section. Delivery is scheduled in late 2018.

The 99,800gt Nieuw Statendam is the sister of 2016's Koningsdam, also built at Marghera.

One again, Tihany Design and Yran & Storbraaten are creating the interiors, and many public areas are inspired by music.
