Another change that was made to the NIEUW AMSTERDAM was the removal of the ventilation slits on her main funnel... just like REX, they proved to be uneffective.
Included is a photo of her as built.

The sea! the sea! the open sea!
The blue, the fresh, the ever free!

Without a mark, without a bound,
It runneth the earth's wide regions round;
it plays with the clouds;
it mocks the skies;
Or like a cradled creature lies.
