October 2015 - Maasdam to Canada, New England, New York
Instead of racing each morning to get ready for dining at breakfast, room service provided a leisurely start to the day. If you like learning, the shore excursions provided interesting information about the area. Exploration on your own also lent to learning about the area as museums and even community buildings were easy to access. On board, the cruise director and all crew provided entertainment that could be accessed at one's leisure. One of the presentations was about the history of the region. The desk staff took care of all inquiries and worries with cheerful and concerned demeanor. The housekeeping crew is phenomenal. The dining crew is entertaining as well as helpful. The chefs outdid themselves for serving to so many. Noone thinks of navigation, but the ship sailed without us having to worry. I am sure other cruisers look for other kinds of amenities, but this cruise suited my cruising desires well.
