Travel Down Under
Maasdam Cruise Review to South Pacific - Australia
After a very tiring flight, we got on board and discovered a very well worn room. There was no place to plug in our CPAPs for sleeping. We had informed the cruise line that this was necessary. Our cabin steward had to get an extension cord and tape it across the floor. The bathtub was peeling and very difficult to get in and out of. The crew was very nice and we enjoyed meeting so many interesting people. The docking for the ship was far from the communities and required a bus ride or shuttle to get to anything. We loved our tours and I particularly enjoyed going into the bush to see kangaroos and koalas. For anyone planning to go, give yourself an extra day or two at the beginning of the cruise to be over jet lag by the actual departure day.

Cabin / Stateroom
The elevators are pretty fast. It is easy to get around this ship because it is not too big. Can't go aft to forward on deck seven. Public areas are roomy and well cared for.
