PRINSENDAM: 1973 - Aborted-by-fire brochure 1972

Product Description
Holland America Line: Some ships are just unlucky. For example, the M.S. PRINSENDAM, the first of a projected fleet of deluxe mini-liners to be stationed around the world to receive fly-in passengers.

This pre-maiden voyage brochure was printed in March 1972 in anticipation of an inaugural season beginning eighteen months later. Several pages of lush photography introduce the exotic world of Indonesia where the ship would be stationed. A route map shows destinations ranging from Belawan to Tjilatjap. A sailing schedule shows an initial cruise planned for July 1973. Color-coded plans show six decks and six sample cabin lay-outs.

But instead of a maiden voyage, the PRINSENDAM was a singed wreck in July 1973, the result of a fire during trials. The maiden voyage was delayed a year. But all that paled in comparison with another fire during a repositioning cruise in October 1980. A leaking fuel pipe started an engine room fire which got out of control. Passengers and crew took to lifeboats out in the stormy Gulf of Alaska. Fortunately all were saved in one of the most difficult sea rescues in history. The burned-out PRINSENDAM soon capsized and sank.

Excellent condition.
