Maasdam, a beautiful small ship

Sail Date: April 14, 2008

Reviewed: 7 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Balcony

Great small ship, nice decor, excellent service everywhere. Only disappointment was main dining room meats and fishl

Pros: I loved the size of the ship - small. It was so easy to get everywhere. The decor was demure, the service outstanding to include the front desk , cabin stewart, waiter, assistant waiter. We also enjoyed JP Nadeau in the Piano Bar. We were there every night.

Cons: The food in the main dining room was not up to the standard we expect on Holland America. With the exception of the prime rib, nothing tasted very well. Food in the Lido was better. Breakfast in the main dining room was good.

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!

Lovely island with so much charm. Again, we didn't take an excursion.

Oranjestad, Aruba
We have been here before, too. Eight days to be exact. Seems our port was different than one we used when we cruised with the old Royal Cruise Line.
Don't Miss: n/a
Charlotte Amalie, St. Thomas
We have been here so many times, so we just walked around the port area.
