Seattle, December 16, 2009 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ On Holland America LineÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 2010 Bermuda sailings, the ms Veendam will anchor and tender in to St. GeorgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s on local ferries that carry 700 guests. This operational change was made due to challenges with the Town Cut and the narrow entrance to St. GeorgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Harbour. We believe this will be a very efficient tender process for our guests who are sailing to experience Bermuda and Holland America Line. We expect that they will enjoy touring, dining and shopping as planned both in St. GeorgeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s and in Hamilton where the ms Veendam will dock downtown for two-nights.
Holland America Line understands that a potential engineering project could eventually solve this issue and believes this would be a very proactive and business-friendly step the Government of Bermuda could take.
