The Maasdam must be having issues filling the ship, as they have great prices for this and the 17 night cruise before it.

HAL always starts off with over inflated pricing down under and then has to resort to bargain basement fares to fill the ship.

It is a lovely ship to cruise on. The rooms are larger than Princess and the capacity is around 1200 pax.

The ports and itinerary intrigued us, so we did a quick read of Maasdam reviews.  Never cruised with HAL, only Rci/Celebrity so very interested to hear any comments about this ship from those of you who are obviously familiar with her? Cheers.
