Nice ship...nice cruise...very cold pool

Sail Date: June 23, 2007

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

Another very nice HAL ship. Very friendly staff. HAL needs to choose a side of the ship for SMOKING or NON-smoking as smokers were allowed in all outdoor areas. That is very troubling to non-smokers. The stateroom halls often smelled of smoke from cigarettes.

Also, as HAL is a Premium cruise line that caters to an older crowd, there needs to be pool supervision for children and they were jumping and diving into the pools and jacuzzis. Even though there is a NO JUMPING sign, there is no one form HAL to enforce it. As a result, my wife never got a chance to use the pool during our 7 day cruise.

Holland still does a way better job than Celebrity or RCL, etc.

Pros: great size not too big allows tending into smaller ports

Cons: the swimming pools were very very cold. Main pool need refurbishment

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!
