Old wolrd charm, elegant features, superb service, wonderflul crew.
Our room was the perfect size with a lounge chair on our patio and recently remodeled. There was a plasma screne TV with a DVD player. Rentals of over 1000 movies was free
To prevent sickness, the meals were mostly served at the buffet which prevents you from pigging out and really enjoying the food. So much better than our last cruise 2 months ago on another cruiseline
Despite bad weather the captain and crew were very accomodating.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
We average 3 to 4 cruises a year and this was by far the best food we ever experienced. Incredible desserts
Only thing we missed was the soft serve ice cream machine that was available 24 hours on the other cruise lines

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
Have yet to be on a ship that didn't have a wonderful and happy crew
Our room stewart sang to wake us up every morning at 9am

Ship Quality

The ship was immaculate and the cleaners were polite and friendly.
Because the ship was not enormous everything was accesable easily

Unbelievable historic beauty and elegance Would love to have spent more than 2 days here Everything is incredible They down play the incredible amount of miracles at St Anns that have happened If your're catholic and know someone who i ll then this visit is a must
Don't Miss: take a horse drawn carriage ride and trip to St Anns shrine

Pros: Food was the best of any cruiseline

Cons: people talking in the wonderful library

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!
