Tahiti Cruise Highlights:
The world's second-biggest atoll, Rangiroa, is a wonderfully languorous and remote place to explore. It's beautiful: The stark whiteness of the bleached coral contrasted against the turquoise water creates vivid delight for the eyes. The lagoon here is vast and dazzling, ringed by gorgeous white-sand islets accessible only by boat and just perfect for lazing away a long afternoon. The majority of visitors come here to dive, but Rangi (as locals call it) offers more ways to explore its magnificent lagoon than to just go deep: Opt instead for a relaxed snorkel, or take a glass-bottom boat out for a cruise.
Rarotonga is the youngest Cook Island, geologically speaking, and it serves as the point of entry for most visitors. The island's most visible landmark is a towering granite pinnacle known as the Needle, which rises from razor-backed ridges. Rarotonga's other main calling cards are its Muri Lagoon, a dazzling patchwork of soothing blue hues, and its extraordinary people. Cook Islanders have a passion for Polynesian drumming and dancing, which they perform with an old-school, hip-swinging intensity that gets even bystandersí hearts racing. The singing at Sunday church services is equally inspiring.
French Polynesia's second-largest island, home to a flower so rare it grows nowhere else on Earth. Its landscape is dramatic and mountainous - its tallest peak tops 1,000 meters (3,330 feet) - fitting for a place whose name means faraway heaven. Tahitians consider this their sacred island, and a journey here will take you to sites associated with legends and lore. But adventure seekers will also find plenty of outdoor activities, including hiking, kayaking, diving and exploring by horseback, while shoppers can browse a handful of shops and the daily market in the port of Uturoa.
Bora Bora - After the end of World War II, some American soldiers stationed on Boar Bora didn't want to leave. In fact, they stayed until their families back home began complaining. It's hard to blame the soldiers. James Michener called the island the most beautiful in the world, and used the island as inspiration for his Bali Hai. The islands's mountains, beaches and lagoons are the default when you thing tropical paradise. Cruise visitors can dive into the clear waters of the lagoon, take a jeep tour into the high country, or relax on Matira beach and wonder what would happen if you stayed.
Named for the Maas River in the Netherlands, ms Maasdam is the fifth ship in Holland America Line's 140 year history to bear the name. At 720 feet, 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 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.
Guests on Maasdam will be able to "show and tell" their vacation memories through the Digital Workshop powered by Windows. Free workshops led my 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. Guest will learn how to share all their digital memories through email, blogging and social networking - so friends and family can see where they've been cruising even before they return home.
