Zuiderdam is currently at Fiancantieri Boat Yard...just outside of Venice, Italy. She is on schedule and barring anything unforeseen, she is scheduled to do the crossing to FLL mid November. She is not making any stops along the East Coast on her way to FLL as Amsterdam (and other HAL ships) have done in the past. Her Maiden Voyage with passengers is December 14.
We have heard from a friend who is at the boatyard readying her...that the decorating of Zuiderdam may be HAL's most beautiful yet.
