Maasdam Cruise Review by maxthecat

Trip Details
  • Sail Date: Jan 2019
  • Destination: Asia
  • Cabin Type: Large Ocean-View Stateroom

We have travelled on the Maasdam 9 years ago. Everything about the cruise (Panama Canal) was A+.

This cruise in S.E. Asia was terrible. Embarkation was very slow (11/2 hour wait).

The ship has gotten old and run down. It should be taken out of service.

The cabin was nothing special, run of the mill outside cabin.

The food in the dining room was was way below average, worse in the buffet.

Not as much selection, and the quality well below Holland America standards.

The entertainment was sub par whenever there was any. Mostly movies and talks.

This was an EXC cruise. Don't go on these cruises.

The service was below Holland America standards.

The excursions were expensive and not worth the price. Many passengers hired a taxi for half the price.

In our opinion, Holland America standards have depreciated considerably.

We did a Celebrity cruise after the Maasdam. Infinitly better.
