There is a lot of talk about Ms Maasdam and a supposed dock/conversion to exploration, including the installation of cranes and zodiacs. I see no listing of a dock period, but there is currently a gap in her schedule;

 

  • Arriving Fort Lauderdale August 31-2018
  • Departing Fort Lauderdale September 10-2018

Any ideas????

It could very well be a dry dock, as I believe the In Depth EXC cruise itineraries start fall of 2018. Perhaps a new thread/post to the attention of Copper would result in some answers?

Noordam Mar 24/19 to Apr 7/19

 

https://www.davekozcruise.com/2019/

 

We have a 14 day NZ cruise booked for these dates that HA has not contacted us about. We also have the Apr 7 to Apr 28 TP booked that may have a charter in progress. Both are listed on the HA web as sold out.

 

I emailed the contact on the website, March 24-31, 2019 and also March 31-April 07, 2019 are charters.

 

Hal will probably be contacting those who have deposits for those sailings, once the paperwork is confirmed for the charters.

 

I would think you will be offered some OBC as compensation if you book another cruise.

Thanks John, I noticed the gap in Maasdam schedule, so assumed that she would do a short dock period (we will be boarding her later this year). Did you hear anything about adjustments on Maasdam to sort of an expedition type vessel (with 1300 guests, that would be a lot of zodiacs ;p)?

You're welcome Jeroen; assumed correct, as usual ;) I've heard those same rumors as far as Maasie, but unconfirmed at this time

I notice that Prinsendam has a rather lengthy dry dock scheduled for next December - do you happen to know what they are doing to her during that time? Since we board in January, 2019 curious minds want to know!

Good morning Arzz;

Haven't heard any specifics other than a routine dry-dock but I will attempt to find out

For the Maasdam, I have read that it’s getting two cranes mounted in the front along with an unknown number of zodiac inflatable boats. We’re booked on it for 10 Sept so I’ll update from onboard.

That's really interesting since the "S" and "R" class vessels already have bow cranes on port and starboard sides. They are used, predominantly, to lower and raise the ship's long gangway on to docks where that bad boy is needed. At times, they are used to lower the paint float, stored on the bow, to the water so the sailors can have a go at painting the hull at the waterline
