I like the Maasdam. This was my second trip on Maasdam in 2 months and first as a 4 Star Mariner. The laundry service was fantastic. I got my laundry back on same day. Very few single travelers on this cruise.

Food and Dining

5 out of 5
I thought the food and dining service were excellent both in dining room and Pinnacle Grill. They gave me my usual table for two in fixed seating.


3 out of 5
The onboard entertainers were good and the add ons were OK but they really need to upgrade some of the shows themselves especially the Bob Mackie show which I have seen probably a dozen times. No guest lecturers.

Service and Staff

5 out of 5
I had great cabin stewards and dining and wine servers.

Ship Quality

3 out of 5
The size is right for me. It seemed clean and well kept.

Cabin / Stateroom

3 out of 5
Typical HAL Roomy enough. Cannot compare with Disney. I was in inside cabin on Main deck which was fine.

Pros: Quebec City and the Fall Colors from the air

Cons: Bad weather and missed ports and changed schedule. Stop at Port Canaveral

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!
