Worst and best!: Maasdam Cruise Review by FOGA
Overall Member Rating
Worst and best!
Destination: Southern Caribbean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
What saved the cruise for us was three outstanding members of cruise staff. The cruise director, Anthony Choice was truly excellent. We have met dozens of them over the years and he is the best. He is all over the ship, unfailingly cheerful, and highly entertaining. He makes a personal connection with the passengers that is unique. His sidekick, Armen the DJ, was also personable and fun to be around. On a different level, Ian the librarian is also a gem. He is highly educated and knowledgeable about books. He is able to recommend books out of their library and was spot on when he gave me a new author to read. In addition to this, he has a quiet sense of humour that I really enjoyed. I don't suppose he will be on ships for long - he is much too bright, but if you are lucky enough to cruise with him, do go and get to know him.
So it was the worst and the best of times. We will stick to Princess in the future. Their frequent cruiser rewards are hard to beat, and they are much more consistent in their hotel management. Less
