Join us as we escape from the cold winds of winter with a warm water cruise around the "Lands Downunder.” We journey to the South Pacific to explore the very best of Australia, plus a visit to exotic Bali, Indonesia. We start our journey with three wonderful nights in Sydney with its natural beauty, unspoilt beaches, and sparkling harbour. Once we embark our ship we will be completely spoiled by the friendly staff and wonderful amenities on board the luxurious ms Maasdam. Spacious cabins, gourmet cuisine, and world class service will make our time on board relaxing, lazy busy, romantic; whatever we wish it to be without ever having to pack a bag until we are ready to head for home. Let the fun unfold on our Chairman's Cruise with David and Roslyn Craig, as they return to the island where they met and Roslyn’s hometown.
