This September, Holland America will begin a new approach to cruising for those that are looking for more immersive ways to see the world. There will be new EXC In-Depth Voyages exploring some of the most fascinating parts of the globe offered onboard the 1,258-guest Maasdam. The itineraries will be 12 to 34 days long, and use world-renowned experts, local scholars, and customized Zodiac tours to immerse guests.

Each journey will offer a variety of themes to tailor guests’ exploration: photography; science and nature; arts and culture; food; wine and spirits; history and perspective; and active exploration.
