Maasdam Overview

MS Maasdam has been refitted as an explorer vessel: she runs ‘EXC In-Depth Voyages’ that focus on local customs, food, dance and so forth, and uses Zodiac inflatables to go ashore. Maasdam completes her circumnavigation of Australia in November 2019. Then there’s a unique 17-night cruise out of Sydney that explores in depth the Queensland coast and tropical islands of PNG. Add on 20 nights for the following cruise to NZ and South Pacific islands. The fares are excellent. At the turn of the year leave Sydney for four weeks in southern Australia, NZ and the Pacific, finishing at Auckland. Until February 2020 Maasdam sails Australian and New Zealand waters. In March 2020 Maasdam crosses the Pacific for the Mexican Riviera, and late in 2020 for Alaska. Indeed, Maasdam has planned some very interesting itineraries less than 3000 km from Australia. In November 2020 Maasdam returns to Sydney and in the following three months offers some excellent itineraries that include circumnavigating Australia, Indonesia, Singapore, PNG and the Philippines. Holland America Line arranges excellent onshore tours, and pre- and post-tour packages.

Accommodation

Staterooms are spacious, and include: Interior large and standard; Ocean-view with panoramic windows; Lanai, that open directly to a promenade deck but with mirrored glass doors for privacy; Spa, located near the Greenhouse Spa and Salon; and three levels of suites. Basic features include a flat-panel TV and DVD player (book your DVDs by phone), ample storage, personal safe, excellent twin/queen bedding and bath amenities, fresh fruit on request, and nightly turndown service. The décor is very pleasing and comfortable. Complimentary meals can be ordered for in-suite dining around the clock. Triple and quad cabins are available, as well as interconnecting cabins for up to six guests. Many staterooms are modified accessible and wheelchair accessible. There are no single cabins.

Food and Dining

The ship has six formal to casual dining areas. The two-deck main Dining Room serves open-seating breakfast and lunch. For dinner chose between set-seating at first or second servings, or open seating on the upper deck. The Master Chefs’ three-course menus are excellent, and waiting staff are friendly Indonesian and Filipino stewards. Ask for a table for 2/4/6/8. Special dietary requests must be ordered pre-cruise. One night in seven is a formal night, perhaps preceded with pre-dinner drinks, then after your meal retire to the Showroom at Sea or a musical recital. There are two alternative restaurants, best to reserve in advance: The Pinnacle Grill (pay extra) for steaks and seafood (and occasionally a special Pinnacle – Le Cirque), and the Italian-American-influenced Canaletto. Ask about beverage packages.

Entertainment

At night the Show Lounge presents Las Vegas-style revues, dancers, illusionists, comedians and variety acts. Alternatively, attend a musical recital in one of the lounges, dance to the backing of a band ensemble, watch sport in the multi-screen sports bar, or sip drinks while your request is sung by the pianist or guitarist. View recent movies (with popcorn) in the Screening Room, unless you’d prefer to watch your choice of DVD in your cabin. Guests can crowd around the Piano Bar for a sing-along: this is a very popular location. Through the evening the disco and nightclub on the top deck will take you into the early hours of the morning, very inviting if the new day is a sea day and you’ve ordered breakfast in your cabin. The large casino has lots of playing options.
