Maasdam Cruise Review by esimon
- Sail Date: July 2017
- Destination: Canada & New England
- Cabin Type: Vista Suite with Verandah
Ship is older but in great shape. Well maintained and nicely decorated. Beautiful sitting areas. Smaller ship with not middle stair case. Tricky getting around.
Cabin was great. had no hot water for 24 hrs but... fixed and no more problems.
Dining was awesome in all areas. Wait staff above and beyond in all areas.
Service as always with HAL was superb.
I've read some complaints about cut backs but in my opinion the level of service is as amazing as always. HAL is not known for fun and games and that's why I pick them.
Did not use HAL for excurshions but loved all the ports
Not sure why we stopped in Sydney but the rest was great.
Use Halifax taxi - Les was wonderful We did the HippoBus in PEI great hour tour and cheap.
