Things to remember: Onboard the Maasdam
Looking at booking a holiday on the Maasdam? Here are some helpful things to keep in mind as you plan your journey:
  • The dress code is smart casual, with approximately two formal nights per cruise.
  • A daily gratuity is automatically added to your onboard account every day.
  • Families are more than welcome, with a good range of activities for children and teens.

I have enjoyed visiting as much of the world as possible over the years. Europe and the Mediterranean are personal favourites, but there is so much to see very close to our little Australasian corner of the globe- one of my top travel experiences was snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles in New Caledonia! Cruising is a fantastic way to see it all, and we hope to make booking a cruise easier for both first-timers and old salts. From ship tips to destination news and views, we will keep you up-to-date. Happy cruising!
