Verified Review
10 Night Eastern Caribbean (Ft. Lauderdale Roundtrip)
Sail Date: April 12, 2013
Ship: Maasdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 791
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 5 years ago
Considering this ship is over 20 years old the cabins are well maintained with the exception of the window which had paint stains, roller marks that obscured most of the view. The entertainment on the ship is really non existent. Most of the guest are older/ elderly whom require a lot of individual attention. The lido staff did an excellent job of attending to the elderly guest, the lido restaurant staff assisted them to their seats and even took orders for their food. If you are an elderly gust entertaining a cruise this would be the ideal line for you. However, if you are not an elderly person then this may be too slow of a pace for you.
