Named for the Maas River in the Netherlands, the ms Maasdam is the fifth ship in Holland America Line’s 135-year history to bear the name. At 720-feet, the ms Maasdam is designed to carry fewer guests while providing more space for maximum comfort. Many staterooms feature commanding ocean views, and each suite has a private verandah.

Featuring an interior motif that pays homage to the historical Dutch East and West India companies of the 17th through 19th centuries, the centerpiece of this elegant ship features Luciano Vistosi’s “Totem,” a monumental sculpture using nearly 2,000 glimmering pieces of glass, prominently displayed in a soaring three-story atrium. Other intriguing art featured on the ms Maasdam are two abstract murals painted especially for the Rotterdam Dining Room and a collection of seven iron teapots and a charcoal brazier from Japan, which date from the end of Edo period.

Guests on the ms Maasdam will be able to “show and tell” their vacation memories through the Digital Workshop powered by Windows®. Free workshops led by Microsoft-trained “techsperts” will show even the most novice camera or computer user how to take better vacation photos, make movies, edit pictures and create scrapbooks using a variety of Microsoft Windows and Windows Live services. Guests will learn how to share all their digital memories through email, blogging and social networking - so friends and family can see where they’ve been cruising even before they return home.

Enjoy an unforgettable cruise vacation aboard the ms Maasdam in 2011-2012 as she travels the Caribbean, Panama Canal, Canada & New England and Europe.

What’s it all about…

Over the past 15 years, cruising has been revolutionized – and you are responsible for the changes!  Cruisers spoke, and the cruise lines listened. You were looking for flexibility & choice, a quality experience, and most importantly, an excellent value. The cruise lines have made countless changes –there are dining choices, both times and venues, a variety of new departure ports, new & exciting onboard activities, such as climbing walls, surfing, ice skating, bowling, & cooking demonstrations and new stateroom amenities to enhance comfort. Spas have been expanded and include the latest treatments, children's programs have been expanded, cruises are much more family friendly that ever before, and state-of-the-art facilities were added for gyms, sports, communication, entertainment, and fun. In today’s world, more than ever, cruising offers the best possible value and experience for your vacation dollar.  And interline rates? They are confirmed space!


Cruise Shopping Tips

♦  The higher the deck and the more center ship, the higher the price and accommodation are generally the same in each meta-category.

♦  Flexibility = Savings. Just want to get away? Look for the destination with the best interline savings based on your time off.

♦  Look for cruise departures offering a ROS Inside OR Outside where the inside and outside rates are exactly the same.

♦  In the old days of cruising, you would be given tip envelopes the last day of the cruise. Now, tips are automatically added to your stateroom account, so you don’t have to scramble for the correct amount of cash on the last day!

♦  Protect your vacation investment with insurance. Cruises do not offer bump protection.


Proof of Eligibility

It’s imperative for you to provide proof of eligibility, either in the form of a copy of your airline ID or a letter from a supervisor/pass bureau on airline letterhead stationary proving interline eligibility. If proof of eligibility is not received in a timely manner (varies by cruise line) the interline rate is in danger of reverting to a retail rate, costing you hundreds of dollars.
