Ship Facts: Maasdam Review (by Cruise Critic!) | Maasdam Deck Plans
Maasdam A Good Experiance
It was 45 degrees with a strong wind when we boarded the Maasdam. The weather was the only really bad thing about the trip. The staff did a good job of making up for cancelled excursions and generally helping with rough seas that we had several days.

I loved the cooking classes on board. Some you just watched the chefs prepare. Others you had the chance to cook with and learn from a visiting chef. The Bingo was unbelievable the jackpot reached $100,00.00 on the last day.

My friend and I had asked for a table for 8 in the Rotterdam for the late seating. I don't know if was the Dine as You like seating, the age of many passengers that made them choose the early seating, or what but we ended up sitting by ourselves at a table for 2. It took 2 days and a lot of complaining to get at least a seating at a table for 6.

The food was good to great, except the dessert (which I didn't need anyway). They had an amazing array of cheeses to choose from which with fruit made a great end to the meal.

All in all it was great cruise and a lot of fun.
