This Christmas Could Be Average, or You Could Visit New Plymouth, New Zealand and Bunbury. Which Will You Choose?

Get ready for twenty-nine days of luxurious travel through the sea when you step aboard the Holland America Maasdam from Auckland to Perth.

Aboard this Christmas and New Years sailing you will stop at standard cities such as Sydney plus extremely rare cities such as Nelson, New Zealand, New Plymouth, New Zealand, and Bunbury. This route is a special one for the Maasdam. Actually, this is the only time it's scheduled to sail it!

What makes this cruise special is that if you book now you can get an outside outside cabin for the inside price! We include all all taxes and fees in this, so there are no surprises. At under $105 a day for an outside cabin, this is a very strong deal.
