All in all, one of the best ships, crew and overall experience I've had. A bit more TLC on the ship, and it would be perfect. I will sail Holland America again.

All in all, it was a great cruise. Reasonably priced and a good value. We totally loved it. We especially enjoyed the excursions and the dinner service.

Great cruise destination. Cool temps and more kids because of summer and destination but a must see. The ship was great and as always HAL service is above and beyond

Good cruise, not sure i would do again though. We were really disappointed in the ship musicians overall. We are musicians so having to avoid bad performers i the bars was annoying.

Great Ports of Call, Ship - So So

Actually a 3 1/2. My favorite cities on the trip were Toronto and Quebec, which we saw by our Globus tour and then Quebec again, all of the Maritime Ports, and Bar Harbor on the Maasdam. All these towns had good restaurants, good pubs and many points of interest. The Canadians we met were all friendly and super helpful. The Maasdam is showing her age. There were repairs and maintenance going on underway that were likely due to her age. The immigration and then tendering in Bar Harbor was poorly organized and communicated. The food on board was good but not great. The service, especially for our cabin was excellent. The cabin was on the small side and dirty windows on the outside impaired our view. The ship does have self-serve laundry facilities, which is convenient considering we did a week's tour before the cruise.

The 4th floor was easy to move around the ship. Elevators were never crowded and real close to our cabin. Also close to the Medical Services. Thank goodness we didn't have to use them.

Don't book an outside cabin in the aft section.

On port/tour days its much faster to eat on the Lido deck than wait in dining room for fine dining
