24 Night Amazon & Carnaval Explorer (Ft. Lauderdale To Rio De Janeiro)
Sail Date: January 14, 2016
Ship: Maasdam
Cabin Type: Oceanview
Cabin Number: 783
Traveled As: Couple
Reviewed: 1 year ago

The best part was the carnival samba parade in Rio. The unusual natural  beauty of the Amazon. We had good lecturer on the ship who highlighted the history and the geography of the places we visited. Not to mention the Microsoft classes provided useful information about the new Windows 10. On sea days we had to make a decision which function to attend they had quite a few program to choose from.

Cabin / Stateroom

The cabin was spacious and comfortable for a long cruise with an excellent location in amidships.

Ship Tip

The Maasdam is an older ship. Some of the common areas were to cold and the seats are quite worn. Seating on them was not to comfortable. The people in the dining areas provided excellent service.
