Nieuw Amsterdam Set Sail on Sea Trials Today
Nieuw Amsterdam left its berth at Fincantieri’s Marghera shipyard today to go through its first set of sea trials. During the trials, the ship is put through its operational paces, clocked going full speed, scores of tests are run on shipboard systems and the vessel is put through a whole range of maneuvers.
Mary Moore, blog contributor based at the yard, sent us her video and photo of the ship sailing away from the dock. Yes, that’s her squealing when the ship blows its horn!
