Fifth ship to bear the name

Maasdam is the fifth ship in Holland America Line's 135-year history to bear the name.

At 720ft, she 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.

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 includes a collection of seven iron teapots and a charcoal brazier from Japan, which date from the end of Edo period.

Guests 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.
