HAL Veendam Loses Power
Holland America’s Veendam lost power last night about 20 miles off the coast of Oregon. As of 10 a.m. today, engineers were still working to repair the ship’s main electric generator, according to a Holland America sales representative.

The 55,000 ton, 1,266 passenger Veendam, built in 1996 and part of the line’s Statendam class, is currently sailing a 20-day Panama Canal itinerary from Vancouver. The ship, which continues on its course despite the electricity interruption using an auxiliary power source, is without heating, cooling, ventilation, lighting or running water.
