===================

HOLLAND AMERICA LINE
In the early part of the 17th Century, Henry Hudson set sail from Holland in a tiny ship called "de Halve Maen." His long voyage across the Atlantic heralded the beginning of Dutch exploration and settlements in the New World. During this century's great era of Trans-Atlantic elegance, Holland America's beloved Nieuw Amsterdam II (1938-1973) came to represent all the luxury, magnificence and splendor of that time. Our emblem shows this famous flagship alongside "de Halve Maen". Together, these two ships symbolize the centuries old seafaring tradition of the Dutch and the long-standing friendship between Holland and America.
