Atlantic Adventure on MS Maasdam 2013, mini review.
Destination: Europe - Western Mediterranean
Embarkation: Fort Lauderdale (Port Everglades)
The port expert "Kelly" supplied very bad information.
The choice of a tender port was very poor. Should have stayed in Naples for both days.
The wait staff was outstanding.
Our cabin was not as big as pictured on the web site.
The guess lecturer, Jim was great.
There seemed to be a shortage of small paper napkins.
Some of the fresh fruit served, should not have been served. If you can not serve a good product you are better off not serving it.
The cold fruit soups were good.
The execution of my low/no salt dinners were very good.
Cabin stewards were very good.
The ships doctor was very good. Did great follow up. The medical disembark was less than desirable. The port agent Sergio Ruggieri was nice when we had him, but was absent a lot of times when we needed him.
The choice of docking in some industrial ports without good ways to get out More of the port was a poor idea for HAL.
Shows were good to very good.
Mike in the Mix lounge was very good.
The two ladies in the Explorer's Lounge were good, but needed a bigger repertoire.
The music on the lido deck was two loud.
The piano bar was very good.
The mix lounge was very good.
The crows nest was good but we changed to using the Mix.
The new way of doing meet and greet is very bad.
Cruise Critic added a lot to this cruise.
Most of our fellow passengers were very nice. Less
