Great location on deck 6 in the middle of the ship. Near the laundry! Plenty of closet and drawer space. Space under the bed for suitcases. Nice bathroom with bub/shower. It was quiet. However, we were on the lower promenade deck and did't realize that the promenade was outside our cabin window. We had to keep the curtains closed. If they were open we could read the book of the passenger sitting outside our window. This wasn't a terrible thing, but in the future I'll know not to book a room where everyone walks!

I was in one of the what I assumed to be the newly designed Lanai staterooms.
It opens out onto the Lower Promenade deck wrap-around walking area.
That was treat, even though it was a bit cold to enjoy my private deck-chair. Read entire member review.
We had a Lanai room and we enjoyed being able to go out on the deck. I think the kitchen or storage is above the lanai rooms. It wasn't noisy, but every once in a while we heard some strange sounds. Storage in the room was fine. The bathroom had a tub, which meant the shower area was large which was nice, but it was really deep which made it hard to get in and out. The bed and bedding were very comfortable Read entire member review.
Stateroom 358, on Lower Promenade deck, is ideally located for providing quick access to everywhere on the ship, including just a few steps to be outside on the Promenade Deck. It also is a very quiet location on the ship, with no noise from above or from the corridor. (Avoid rooms on this deck under the galley!) This will become a "lanai stateroom" after Maasdam's drydock in April, which will change things -- including the price. Read entire member review.
The first sea day, we pretty much putzed around the ship getting to know where everything was. VERY easy ship to find things on, and our cabin C369 (which was an upgrade - thanks HAL!!) was in a primo location on the Lower Promenade deck. Three doors down from our own private balcony we called it! LOL The only complaint about this cabin is that you can see inside it at night. Which we didn't realize until about three days in. So we unwittingly provided entertainment for anyone strolling by
AMAZING bed. SO comfortable, like heaven!! FAR superior to RCCL in comfort and size, of the bed and the cabin itself. The bathroom was spacious and loved the tub setup much better than the RCCL shower stalls. The only problems with our cabin was when we arrived there was mold in our toilet! ???? Blecch. We complained to the front desk and it wasn't a problem after the first day. Also, it took a few days and several requests for our steward to keep refilling our ice bucket to chill our champagne. After a few days he did it automatically and wasn't an issue.
We had no problems with the heat or AC in our cabin as several other past Maasdam guests have complained. Read entire member review.
