DESIGNED FOR THE CURIOUS traveler, EXC In-Depth™ Voyages combine destination intensive itineraries to some of the world’s most captivating places with opportunities for more immersive experiences. For Holland America Line and for our guests, these one-of-a-kind voyages represent a first on many levels.
Maasdam will visit multiple ports in each region on these itineraries, giving guests more opportunities to explore all aspects of local culture. Guests will have the chance to experience ports that are first-time calls, not just for Maasdam but for any Holland America Line ship, as well as not-to-be-missed destinations. The EXC In-Depth™ difference? Wherever possible, the onboard speakers and talent actually live and work in the area we visit, ensuring authentic, genuine and timely experiences. And since most of our guests aren’t interested in just one thing, EXC In-Depth™ Voyages offer a range of learning and experiential opportunities in each destination, and even on the sea days in between. The result is a cruise that allows guests to linger longer and dive deeper — collecting stories and experiences and creating their own histories through deeper understanding and connections with the places they visit. Discover the culture, history, arts and cuisine of these vast and varied regions, enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty, inviting cultures and exotic wonders await on a sun-soaked voyage from Papeete. Embark on an expansive journey across the glittering isles of West Polynesia before reaching New Zealand, or “Aotearoa” as it’s known in Maori. Guests can personalize their journey with unique onboard activities and shore excursions that match their interests and passions. Each voyage offers a variety of themes for in-depth exploration: Photography, Food, Wine & Spirits, Active Exploration, Nature and Science, History and Perspective, and Arts and Culture. Each theme combines onboard programming with in-depth, engaging adventures on shore. Choose one theme for your entire journey or mix it up in each destination. No matter what you select, a rich and immersive experience awaits. Come, savor the journey, only on Holland America Line.
