HAL announced yesterday that the new Eurodam class ship will be named the Nieuw Amsterdam. It will be the fourth ship to carry that name.

Looks like I guessed it correctly, although it was a pretty easy guess.

I wish someone at HAL would have thought about switching the names. It would have made for a great marketing coup to introduce the new signature class Nieuw Amsterdam just a month or so from the 70 anniversary of the maiden voyage of the former flagship Nieuw and one of the lines best known HAL liners, then. Save the Eurodam name for the sister

Holland America Line will name its latest Signature Class ship and the 15th in its fleet, ms Nieuw Amsterdam.

To be delivered in 2010, the 86,000-ton Nieuw Amsterdam will be built at Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri's Marghera shipyard and its interior design and art collection will reflect the glamour and history of New York City, formerly called Nieuw Amsterdam.

I guess somebody has confidence in the markets out there. Still, there are other projects which are in some deep trouble such as NCL's F3.
