Many ships have been stretched. What was so different about the stretching of the Westerdam?

The Westerdam is noteworthy in the history of Holland America Line for being the only ship in the company's history to undergo an extensive lengthening and redesign.

NO, obviously by the question it was lengthened...not what I was after.

Aaron...I was going with the fact that it is the only one of HAL's ships to be "stretched".

Since you didn't like that answer...how about...is it the longest stretch ever to be done?

If not, then I give up.

No, all stretches other than on the Westerdam were done while the ships were floating. The Westerdam was in drydock, and taken out of the water completely.

OK Aaron, now you got me thinking, please explain how they stretch the ship while it is floating. That sounds really unbelievable. THANKS for the info.
