The Nieuw Amsterdam was a Dutch ocean liner built in Rotterdam for the Holland America Line in 1937. This SS Nieuw Amsterdam, the second of four Holland America ships with that name, is considered by many to have been Holland America’s finest ship. The Nieuw Amsterdam was the Netherlands’ “ship of state”, just as the Normandie was France’s, the Queen Mary was Britain’s and United States was the United States.

Originally she was to be named Prinsendam, however during construction, Holland America Line decided to name their new flagship Nieuw Amsterdam, in honor of the Dutch settlement of New Amsterdam, modern-day New York. Construction on the new liner was carried out at the N.V. Rotterdam Drydock Company. Christened by Queen Wilhelmina in April 1937, Nieuw Amsterdam was, at 36,982 tonnes, the largest liner ever constructed in the Netherlands up to that time. Proudly she was dubbed the Dutch “Ship of peace” since there were no provisions for possible war use incorporated in her design. At the time SS Nieuw Amsterdam was more completely protected against fire, had the largest air conditioning plant and the highest percentage of private baths of any ship afloat. The ship was also the only liner with a fully equipped and air conditioned theater
