Holland America Line to homeport ship in the UK

Ship will be based out of Dover in 2025

Holland America Line is to homeport a ship in the UK for the first time in 10 years, it has revealed.

The company will operate a full season out of Dover in 2025 with Pinnacle-class ship Nieuw Statendam operating 10 departures.

The itineraries will include sailings from 14 to 42 days including Canary Islands, British Isles, Iceland, Greenland, Iberia and eastern Mediterranean cruises.

“We’re really excited about Nieuw Statendam homeporting in Dover for a whole season in 2025 and the additional opportunities this provides to the trade, as well as our guests. The itineraries look incredible and varied, offering something for everyone – beyond Dover, our 10 homeports span Europe, and in 2025 we’re offering the most diverse range of itineraries that include everything from weeklong holidays to the Med to month-long explorations up to the Arctic,” said Karen Farndell, director of UK sales and marketing.

“We would also like to take this opportunity to thank our travel agent partners for their continued support and commitment throughout our milestone 150th year and we look forward to our relationship with the trade going from strength to strength.”

Sonia Limbrick, head of cruise at the Port of Dover, said: “We are thrilled to be a homeport for the Holland America Line for the 2025 season. The Port of Dover is already looking forward to welcoming the Nieuw Statendam and her passengers to our world-class cruise Port as they take in such a wide range of exciting itineraries. With our stunning waterfront, including a new marina and iconic views of Dover’s dramatic White Cliffs and Castle, it provides the perfect send-off and welcome home.”
