Holland America Line

MV Prinses Margriet

Deck Plan

If you have arrived at this page via a search engine, you might wish to visit the MV Prinses Margriet Main Page first and discover this delightful ship and her history with her original owner the Oranje Line, then Holland America Line, and she was then sold, tragically, to Nauru, being a tiny Island nation in the Pacific, which this luxury ship went into ruins! Her Main Page contains countless full colour and black and white photographs!

This page covers MV Prinses Margriet’s Deck Plans as well as the black and white photographs of some of her public venues. This plan was released by Holland America Line, as the ship had first been chartered by them in 1964 from her owner, the Oranje Line and soon thereafter they purchased her outright in order to operate her together with the MV Westerdam on the Rotterdam, New York service.
