Just got this approval to operate Ham Radio onboard Holland America Ship Zaandam:
Thank you for your recent correspondence with Holland America Line concerning your upcoming ms Zaandam voyage.
The Netherlands in which our ships are flagged, has an agreement with the USA and Canada, where radio amateurs are allowed to operate their equipment for a limited time without any further administrative obligations in respective countries. Amateur Radio Operators have to adhere to the regulations of the country transmitting from, and add identification to their own call sign, in this case PA/(own call sign)/mm. Radio Amateurs are not allowed to operate from HAL ships while inside the territorial waters of countries other than the USA and Canada.
The Amateur’s radio equipment must not obstruct in any way or form the operation of the vessel. The Master can suspend and/or restrict the use of the equipment at any time, when interruptions occur to the proper operation of ship’s equipment. The equipment should be operated as far away from ship’s aerials as possible.
Amateur Radio Operators while on board shall not transmit within the boundary of any port.
Guests bringing radio transmitters on board must report this to the Front Office upon boarding in order to obtain any special operating instructions from Ship’s Officers prior to use.
Please feel free to contact us if we may be of additional assistance. Thank you for contacting Holland America Line.
