April 2016 - Maasdam to Caribbean - Eastern
We perfer smaller ships and Maasdam was great for us. With only 1200 guests, you actually see some of the same people more than once and the crew get to know you by name, It never felt crowded on board - there was always a seat or table or chaise lounge to be found. An excellent size gym with new equipment, but did not like their charge of $12 for a yoga or Pilates class. Morning stretch and aerobics were free.
Food service in the buffet restaurant can be slow as it's not self serve - they serve you. Also enjoyed both of their speciality restaurants.
Wolud definitely consider Maasdam for future cruises.
