Royal Godmother for Koningsdam

Her Majesty Queen Maxima
Holland America Line said this morning that Her Majesty Queen Maxima of the Netherlands has consented to name ms Koningsdam in Rotterdam on May 20.

Her Majesty will carry on a tradition of the Royal Family christening Holland America ships that dates back to 1929 when Prince Hendrik launched Statendam III. Over the years the Royal Family has named 11 ships for the line, the most recent was when then-Princess Maxima christened Nieuw Amsterdam in 2010.

Details appeared in the April 18 edition of Cruise News Daily.
