Ship Facts: Maasdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Maasdam Deck Plans
Awesome adventure

This was our longest cruise ever and I was a little apprehensive about the Atlantic crossings because I thought it might be rough and cold, so We were thrilled to have mosly calm seas and warm weather. We even used the outside pool most days. When the captain thought it might get a little rough, he adjusted things to make it comfortable. We loved his daily reports from the bridge!

Honestly we liked everything about this cruise; the friendly guests and crew, the wonderful food and all the ports we were at. We did take some ship tours and they were good, but mostly we had privately arranged tours which were very, very good and a lot less than what the ship charged.

The entertainment that we saw was good; most often we missed it, because after our late dinner, we were just too tired from being so busy all day.

Embarkation was slow, we waited almost an hour before boarding, but once we were on the ship, we were able to go right to our cabin and get settled in. Disembarkation was also very slow but it was because 3 ships were in at the same time and immigration officers were spread thin.

All in all, a very memorable trip. We are looking forward to sailing with Holland America again.
