Review summary

The cruise itinerary was good.   The service on board was good in comparison to other cruise lines but somewhat lacking for HAL.  The service people that were on board were great!  However, there seemed to be less of them.  There was no live music around the pool nor any type of pool side activities.  The format for the Plan of the Day has changed to the When and Where, which really didn't info us.  No drink of the day, no weather forecast for the port, no menu for the dinning room, etc.  disappointing

Maasdam is a tired ship in need of retirement.

Cabin / Stateroom

5 out of 5
Air conditioning was not up to par. The room got warm at night and it was set on the coolest temperature.

I needed to visit the medical staff. Very professional and helpful.
