We Meet Again

Holland America’s now-former Ryndam and Statendam have met one last time in their old identities. They were in the Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in Singapore together over the weekend as they were being transformed into Pacific Aria and Pacific Eden, respectively.

The complete story appeared in the November 5 edition of Cruise News Daily.

The transformation will be stunning. The photo below shows the trompe l’oeil artwork being installed in one of Pacific Eden's elevators. To orient yourself, note the lights on the ceiling and the railing around the walls at waist height. The dirt at the bottom in the foreground is a floor covering. You can see where it is not cut yet to fit on the sides.
