Zaandam Arrives Seward with Dead Whale on Bow

When Holland America’s Zaandam arrived at Seward Sunday morning, it did so with an extra attachment. A dead juvenile fin whale was lying across the bulbous bow.

The whale was likely dead when it was lodged on the bow, but a necropsy was performed to determine the cause of death.

Details appeared in the May 31 edition of Cruise News Daily.
