Cruise Description

12 Night Cruise sailing roundtrip from Auckland aboard Maasdam.

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.

Highlights of this cruise:

What makes Auckland one of the loveliest and most livable South Pacific cities in the world? Credit the visually enticing and world renowned north island of New Zealand where this city sits. To the south, picture rugged and mountainous terrain laced with caves and mystery, while extinct volcanoes in this Ring of Fire nation now form perfect sites for parks with grassy hillsides. Get the best perspective on this City of Sails by climbing up one of these prospects with evocative names — Mount Eden, North Head, or One Tree Hill — and take in the views and fresh sea air. For life on the waterfront. Waitemata and Manukau Harbours provide excellent examples.

Site of fierce Maori wars, Tauranga today is a peaceful city in the heart of kiwifruit-growing country. Farther afield: Rotorua, with its spouting geysers and bubbling mud pools, the Waitomo Glow Worm Caves and nocturnal kiwi houses.

A city of vision, rebuilt in the striking, clean style of art deco after a devastating earthquake in 1931 and reinvented as a center for gourmet food and wines.
