South Pacific Cruise Highlights:
Auckland - 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.
Lautoka, Fiji - For good reason, Fiji's Lautoka stirs up notions of a distant beckoning paradise of beaches and a perfect South Pacific climate. Famed actor Raymond Burr loved the place enough to create an orchid plantation and an unusual Garden of the Sleeping Giant, now a popular attraction. Visitors especially love the natural welcome Fijians extend to visitors, and their willingness to share colorful island history. Unlike many similar island towns, Lautoka has kept its fascinating sugar industry vital and moving forward, while a lovely botanical garden and a magnificent central market represent other main attractions.
Dravuni Island, Fiji - Even among the hundreds of tiny islands that comprise the South Pacific nation of Fiji, Dravuni resembles a mere spec in the ocean. But what an idyllic place to come ashore to set foot on beaches so pristine you may think you were first to set foot there. Of all the world's tropical slices of heaven, this one welcomes snorkelers and beach huggers alike to its welcoming shores. Consider visiting the charming village to meet the locals, and learn the ancient craft of weaving indigenous pandanus leaves into mats and other essentials.
Papeete, Tahiti - Even if you've never been, you've probably been. All you need to have done is glance once at the work of a former stock broker, tarp salesman, and Panama Canal laborer. The color that Paul Gauguin brought to canvas could have been lifted from the markets, beaches, and buildings of today's Papeete. Cruise visitors can soak in the vivid buzz of the Le Marche marketplace, walk at the park along the waterfront, and hunt for a deal on black pearls. Meanwhile, the rest of the island is waiting. Stop by the romantic Vaipahi Garden and the fern lined sea caves of the Mara'a Grotto, then do anything on, beside, or under the island's elysian lagoon.
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.
Enjoy an unforgettable cruise vacation to the South Pacific onboard Maasdam!
