Named after the Maas River in the Netherlands, Maasdam is the fifth ship in Holland America Line's 140-year history to bear the name. At 720-feet, she 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 veranda.

Maasdam is large yet intimate, traditional yet modern and offers activities both onboard and ashore to satisfy the desires of all world travellers.

Her main dining room shares the same name with the Dutch city of Rotterdam. This venue is located on two floors with a genuine staircase and assigned seating at specific times. The Pinnacle Grill is another restaurant onboard which is certainly worthy of investigation, here you will find a superb selection of fresh fish and seafood dishes, but reservation is always required. The Lido Cafe is available for casual dining and small bites.
