Overview

Last updated in 2016, ms Maasdam can carry up to 1,258 passengers and 569 crew members. Traveling with fewer guests means there are more spots in onboard learning programs like BBC Earth Experiences and the popular Digital Workshop, powered by Windows. Plus, you'll likely find fewer crowds at the pool deck and in the Greenhouse Spa. While the ship does offer youth clubs for kids, most activities are geared toward adults. For 2018 and 2019, Holland America Line introduced the new EXC In-Depth Voyages aboard the ms Maasdam, which explore fascinating corners of the world over 12 to 32 days. 

Dining options on ms Maasdam range from steaks and seafood at the Pinnacle Grill to pasta dishes at the Canaletto Restaurant to vegetarian and low-carb plates at the Rotterdam Dining Room. Interior cabins are appointed with sofas and flat-screen TVs, while travelers who upgrade to Lanai staterooms receive private balconies. For more luxury, splurge on one of three suite categories, which include whirlpool baths and access to a private lounge area (in Neptune suites). 

In 2018-19, ms Maasdam sails from a variety of ports – including Singapore, Seattle, San Francisco and Sydney – to destinations in Alaska, Asia and Australia
