Audiobrain has completed the sonic branding/audio experience design, music systems design, and installation for Holland America’s Nieuw Statendam. The ship just made her debut in her homeport of Fort Lauderdale and is heading to Europe in the spring.

Oprah Winfrey has been named the Godmother of this ship and the dedication will be held in a private ceremony. Congrats on a true gem, The Nieuw Statendam!
