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 visits to Komodo Island, Indonesia and Dili, East Timor. 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 Oosterdam. 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.

Ports of Call

ms Oosterdam

Holland America Line

The ms Oosterdam is breath taking in every detail.  Like her sister ships, she offers a world of spacious staterooms, elegant public rooms, expansive teak decks, priceless antiques that line the halls and the friendly gracious staff for which the line is justly famous. At 82,000 tons she carries just over 1,900 passengers in comfort.

Twenty-four different lounges and restaurants will be ours to enjoy from the spacious three level World Stage theatre for colourful stage shows that will fill our evenings, to the twin levels of the La Fontaine Dining Room with its grand staircase and walls of glass. The list goes on - the spacious Lido for casual breakfasts, lunches and dinners, the Pinnacle Grill and Canaletto for elegant alternative dining, B.B. King’s Blues Club, a complete casino, library, card room and numerous intimate lounges for a quiet conversation or a pre-dinner dance. Ample deck area, a complete teak Promenade deck, two pools (one of which can be covered), a sports deck and a superb fitness centre with spa and beauty parlour are all ours to enjoy.

There need never be a dull moment as we cruise - a host of activities await us, from live shows to dance classes and bridge tournaments, from gala evenings to a quiet piano concert or a stand-up comic. Join the morning exercise class, walk the Promenade Deck, enjoy a sauna and massage or relax on deck with a good book and the fresh sea air. The choice is ours as is the enjoyment.
