A fairly good cruise

Sail Date: August 01, 2010

Reviewed: 6 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

This cruise is mostly for older folks who aren't quite so active. My recommendation is for these type of people. Two large areas (casino and Crow's nest) were smoky so limited part of the ship access.

Pros: The service

Cons: Smoky areas

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Ship was well maintained and easy to get around. Only complaint is the smoky areas.
Food and Dining
It was hard to adjust to rushing to 5:45 seating, but 8pm was too late and I heard that open seating could be hard to get when you want as well. The food in the dining room ranged from excellent to okay during the week.
Cabin / Stateroom
Stateroom was fine (didn't expect anything too large) and it was a good location to the walk around deck. Bed was very comfortable.
The entertainment was limited (especially with the Crow's Nest being smoky). but we did enjoy the string quartet. The workout room should have had more exercise classes available.
Service and Staff
Wonderful service everywhere.
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
Charlottetown is a great little place. Took an overall tour and then walked the streets. Very pretty.
Halifax, Nova Scotia
Nice area. We walked around without a tour.
Quebec City, Quebec
Very pretty. The tour was helpful, but very pretty to walk everywhere also.
Sydney, Nova Scotia
Not much here.
