Had a great time!

Sail Date: May 01, 2014

Reviewed: 3 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

We had a great time on our cruise & enjoyed seeing the small ports not often visited in Canada. Size of the ship was great. Loved the smaller size.

Pros: Ports of call\, entertainment & food

Recommends Maasdam? Yes!

Ship Quality
Size & layout were really nice. We didn't get lost after the 1st day. A bit worn in spots\, but nothing to write home about
Food and Dining
Some of the best food we've ever had on a cruise ship. We mostly ate in the dining room at dinner\, but Lido buffet for breakfast & lunch. Not a lot of variation at the Lido buffet\, but every night was different in the main dining room.
Cabin / Stateroom
Loved that we had a sofa to relax\, read\, or watch TV/DVD. Shelves a little sparse in the bathroom\, but we made do using the ample drawer space. I didn't care for the bathtub\, as I thought it was a bit awkward getting in & out & might be a real problem for those older folks.
Service and Staff
Everyone we encountered was happy & friendly. We thought they could use more beverage servers\, though\, as they were sometimes hard to find. Sometimes had to walk up to the bar to get service.
Entertainment was terrific. Most evening shows were very good and we had lots of variety: comedy\, singing\, dancing\, pianist\, juggler\, etc. Lounges also had great entertainment\, including country\, classical\, easy listening & piano. The piano bar was the hot spot & our favorite hangout. The piano man was very\, very good.
