A great cruise

Sail Date: February 13, 2009

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We went on HAL Maasdam to the southern Caribbean. The seas were a bit rough but the ship was really stable through out the trip. The food was great, the staff totally accommodating, the ship was always clean and the shore excursions were all what they were advertised. We did miss one port because of the high winds but our captain fully explained the problem. No one that I spoke to groused about this because of his explanation. We saw dolphins, flying fish, rays, turtles and whales. Ports were full of photo ops galore.

Pros: Ship activities, the food and the shore excursions

Cons: TV stations even with satellite had problems
