HOLLAND AMERICA LINE'S MS STATENDAM TO MEET ORIGINAL INAUGURAL SAILING DATE

 TRIESTE, Italy, Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Holland America Line- Westours Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Carnival Cruise Lines, Inc. (NYSE: CCL), announced today that the MS Statendam -- Holland America's newest cruise ship nearing final completion at the Fincantieri shipyard here -- plans to meet its inaugural saling date of Jan. 25, 1993, despite the occurrence of an engine room-area fire early Monday.
 Delivery of the ship in Italy is being rescheduled from Dec. 11 to Jan. 7, according to Holland America President and CEO Kirk Lanterman.
 "After a thorough inspection of the Statendam, we found the ship to be outstanding, with the exception of damage confined to electrical wiring in the engine room," Lanterman said. "The engines were not damaged by the fire.
 "The major impact of the delay will be the cancellation of previously planned pre-inaugural promotional activities," Lanterman said.
