Noted on first day, crew was busy replacing windows. Some broken ? and there was notable "rust". The glass on half of our window was Glazed. But we understand this is an "Old" ship. Closet was bigger than we're used to. Bathroom was nice, average but then the TUB. Hard to get out of. Even for me (5'8"). My wife (4'10") almost couldn't use it.
Bed mattress could use replacing. Had to get two (2) egg crate covers to fill in the middle. We like sleeping close, but not like that. :)
First few hours on the ship, there were fumes from the fueling tender. We were temporary moved to the other side of the ship till our room was aired out. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large enough for my needs. Plenty of closet/storage space though my large bag didn't fit in any of the closets (no big deal!). This cabin had a window but as the bed was situated in front of the window, looking outside required getting on the bed to do so. I would probably not book an window cabin in the future.

Room was small but adequate. The large window looked out onto the lower promenade. OK during the day but in the evening be sure to close the drapes or passers by can see in. We only saw our room steward three time. He did fill the ice bucket twice a day but after that we had to call room service to get it filled. He also ate half a container of chocolate covered pretzels we had in the room.The ship defiantly needs to be some remodeling. The paint on the door ways into the bathroom was chipped and the carpeting needed replaced. Read entire member review >>
The cabin was large enough for all our clothes and luggage. The bathroom was clean and large enough. Our cabin stewards,Olih and Tulus were outstanding in every way. The service was top rate. One other service I would like to mention is laundry. On this ship and all Holland America ships, I think, you can get unlimited laundry service for $49 per week. The turnaround is a day and I think this is a great feature. Read entire member review >>
Cabin 802 (HAL Maasdam) is an ocean view cabin. We had plenty of storage room for the contents of two checked bags, a carry on bag and a full sized camera case. The location on A deck (lowest passenger deck) was quiet and easy to get to. Our view was unobstructed. The only real problem was that there is only one electrical outlet in the cabin with only one general purpose plug. Passengers must either bring their own power strip or borrow one from the ship. Or one could simply do without anything that needs recharching. Read entire member review >>
Good spacious closets, drawers and shelves. Cabin temperature control poor; quiet location and little noise from other decks or hall; good access to fore and aft elevators; hot water was scalding hot for entire cruise Read entire member review >>
