Holland American liner stops in SC

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - There's another port call this weekend in the busy passenger cruise season on the South Carolina coast.

The Holland America Line's Maasdam spends the day at dock in Charleston on Sunday for a port call before leaving late in the afternoon.

The liner is coming from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., with its next stop in Newport, R.I.

On Tuesday, the Carnival Fantasy arrives in Charleston where it will now be permanently based - the first liner to call South Carolina home.

In all, there will be 67 port calls in Charleston by year's end.
