ms Maasdam - Ship Description
Serving a maximum of 1,266 guests, Maasdam, is known for its spacious decks and sunlit rooms filled with elegant furnishings and grand flower bouquets. From stem to stern, the ship is embellished with over a million dollars worth of specially commissioned art, including a giant glass sculpture by Luciano Vistosi of Italy. The ship features everything discerning travelers expect of the finest destinations on land: great restaurants, dazzling nightspots, and activities galore.
A bronze sculpture of five leaping dolphins stands beside the inviting swimming pool on the ship's Lido deck. The teak decks of the Lower Promenade attract sunbathers and those in search of an afternoon stroll. There are also activities geared for kids hosted by the ship's youth coordinator, and activities for the young at heart including award-winning musical revues, current movies (with free popcorn), dancing, and dazzling casino action. Swimming pools, hot tubs, a gym, and incredible, full-service spa round out all this amazing ship has to offer.
On a Holland America cruise, every meal is a celebration, whether it's taken alfresco in the renowned Lido, with its sparkling pool on one side and the ocean all around, or in the elegant two-level dining hall overlooking an antique marble fountain from Argentina. Dining options--from a juicy filet mignon to Light and Healthy entrees--are plentiful. The Chocolate Extravaganza, a special late-night buffet, features sinful desserts like tortes, cakes, and soufflés. Round-the-clock room service is always an option. Another event that never fails to please is the Royal Dutch High Tea.
