a wonderful cruise

Sail Date: January 24, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

WE had difficulty with our cabin assgmt, were assigned cabin 404 on the lower promonade which had passangers walking outside our windioe all the time ,we proyested and after much complaining they "upgraded us to a cabin on the Main deck two cabins from the stern. room looked very nice but they charged us an extra @100. Well we spent one night in that cabin and it was like hell, with the engine just below us and the virration of the ship, we could not sleep. So we went to the front desk and after much conversation about the ship being filled, etc. they offered to return us to the previous caabin 404 on the Upper Promonade. We adjusted to it and the rest of the cruise was fine. We also had trouble switching dinner table assignments. Unfortunately I must have requested a table for two but we really wanted to be with and meet some interesting people, well it finally took a whole lot of talking and checking and the Dining Room Stewart finally was able to put us with two other couples and we enjoyed their company for the rest of the cruise. Case closed

Pros: the food, the pools, the fittness center, the peopleand the crew,esp the cabin boy

Cons: disappointed in the meal and service in the pinnacle lounge for which we paid an extra #$30 each, wasnt worth it. also had trouble with our cabin assmt, we were given a cabin on the lower promonade with passengers wa king outside our window/port hole all day and night , we requested a similair cab

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!

Oranjestad, Aruba
Very impressive island, good roads plenty of new Hotels and great sandy beaches which I wish we would have used. Again took a Taxi ride around the island with an excellent driver/guide, we was a good ambassador for the isle
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
Took a cab to the Marriott Hotel and went swimming at their beach and had lunch there very nice.

Curacao
Again took a taxi with another two couples(not on the ships tour) did a 2 1/2 hr tour and enjoyed seeing all the sights including the lighthouse, the oldest church, Andru Joness House(Atlanta Brave Center Fielder All Star etc) Lots of high rises too bad. Incidentally our taxi driver was excellent, spoke about 6 different languages very knowledgable about any subject we asked about, worth the price which was $20 apiece less than half of the ships tours. Highly recommend

Roseau, Dominica
Took a cab tour of the island which included a hike up in the rain forest to the Falls, very picturesque but very tiring hike. for the most part the island was quite primitave but friendly, roads were badly in need of repair.
