Maasdam Cruise Review to Canada, New England, New York
Cabin Type: Suite
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 10 years ago
Review SummaryThe Maasdam is a nice size ship with very little crowding and an amazing staff. We got a GREAT deal on this sailing on an S category suite and enjoyed the services in the Neptune Lounge very much. We highly recommend this cruise to those who enjoy relaxation (this is a slower paced, history rich cruise) and a port intensive itinerary.
Food and Dining
Service and Staff
My personal opinion is that HAL's decor is sort of overdone (too much gold and weird coloring, statues, faux marble...things like that), but the ship is still very classy and elegant.
Cabin / Stateroom
We had a major plumbing leak outside our room in a fire station type area that cuased a major leak into the carpet in our room in 2 places- near our bed, and outside our bathroom. The odor was horrible, but the concierge and housekeeping staff compensated us and did their very best to minimize the trauma (despite a nasty stench, blowers in the room, deodorizers, towels on the floor, you name it!). They handled the problem very well.
Ports of Call
Pros: S Suite accomodations, time in Quebec, exceptional service onboard, the Neptune Lounge
Cons: Hours of service in Lido restaurant
