Our stateroom was on Deck 5. It was a relatively normal stateroom experience. A couple notable nuances are that the staterooms dont have a refrigerator. We didnt realize how much we took a refrigerator for granted. This undoubtedly was due to the age of the ship, which is why we also had bathtubs! They also have just two plug-ins, which are just not enough with all the electronics we travel with. Fortunately our cabin steward, Budi, brought us an extension cord with multiple plug-ins that saved the day! The reading lights are those annoying strips that hardly poke over the pillows, leaving you to read in the dark. The creaking whenever we hit even moderate seas told us that the Maasdam probably is about ready to be retired. Our cabin steward did a great job keeping us in fresh towels and our stateroom clean. The main negative to this cabin is that it's next to the gangway, so it gets quite loud on mornings that the ship docks. Don't plan to sleep in on those days!
