After 8 years of her construction, the Statendam was finally delivered to the Holland America Line in 1929. Around 300 guests were on the ship during her sea trials before she departed on her maiden voyage on the Rotterdam to New York service route. In winter she would service cruising from New York to the Caribbean. In December 1937 while departing New York she collided with the American ship Gold and cloud. But both ships suffer minimal damage.
