Nieuw Statendam, a new cruise ship under construction for Carnival Corporation's Holland America Line brand, was launched at Fincantieri's shipyard in Marghera, Venice.

Final outfitting can now begin, ending in autumn 2018 with the ship's delivery to the owner.

The new vessel, the 16th ship built by Fincantieri for Holland America Line and the second Pinnacle class ship after Koningsdam, delivered in 2016 from the same shipyard, will be about 99,500 gross tons, almost 300 meters long, with accommodation for up to 2,660 passengers on board in more than 1,300 cabins.
