We received some great photos of the Veendam dry-dock from Philip Hilgersom, interior superintendent for Holland America Line, along with this report:
These are from today (April2), exciting to be under the new section now. Very smooth move from the pier to Dry-Dock No. 3. Ship is now in position under the new section that eventually will be lowered onto the vessel.
This is some dry-dock!!!
New wall in the forward mess room. On the other side will be the new Officers Mess room.
New section placed on board 3/31 on Verandah Deck, where new balcony cabins will be installed.
Ship being gently and ever so slowly positioned under the new section, which shows the wet units and ducting, etc., already in place.
One of the pillars between which the new section is to be positioned.
