On September 12, 2001, 16 guests from Holland America Line’s ms Maasdam were involved in the crash of a sightseeing plane over Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. There were no survivors.

The guests were traveling on a seven-day Caribbean cruise with a group of University of Washington Husky football fans who planned to arrive in Florida to attend this weekend’s scheduled UW-Miami football game.

The tour was operated by Turismo Aviomar, which was using a twin-engine commuter aircraft owned by Aero Ferinco (www.aeroferinco.com). Unfortunately Turismo Aviomar and Aero Ferinco lacked assets and insurance adequate to compensate the families of the persons who died.

Holland America was sued for its role in selecting Turismo Aviomar and Aero Ferinco. Holland America settled with the victims families.
